    Burning the candle at both ends gives you twice the light for half the time.

It's a balancing act.

The Weekend Update

Sunday, October 23, 2011

Yesterday we had to get up early as my son had to work and we had to go to my MIL's house and to her bank. We were able to get the money out of the account to pay her real estate taxes and then we went to her house and hubby mowed the lawn and dismantled the security system that we are returning. We also took home her safe as we have to have something to keep her important papers in . The safe weighs a ton. Hubby had to repair her fence.

We then went to Sam's as my son wanted us to look for him some shirts. They didn't have what he wanted but I bought some maple bacon and artificial sweetener and we ate a bunch of samples. Our son called why we were there and asked us to go to Wal-Mart to see if they had the shirts and they had 2 that we bought for him. This is one of the biggest Wal-Marts in the world. We headed home and went or a walk.

Today hubby ate and slept and ate and slept and ate and slept even though he promised me he would start cutting down some of the dead trees in the yard. I'm thinking of building him a dog house to live in if he doesn't get this done. LOL. I went for a walk on my wooded trail alone. It was too warm. Saw some squirrels, a katydid, and a grasshopper.

    The weather is wacky here right now, too. Feels like it's draining our energy. I did not get everything done that I wanted to this weekend and I'm sure it's because I didn't make a list. It's so easy for me to blow things off if they aren't staring at me in black and white!

Ready For Spring

Friday, October 21, 2011

We are one month into Fall and the weather already sucks here. It is freezing! The wind chill was in the 30s yesterday and this morning it was actually 30 degrees. I felt like dog dookie anyway. I threw together a crummy breakfast, spot cleaned the pet cages, fed Reekie, and went back to bed. Snore!!

Yesterday we had our county power company here as we had the flickers. We have a whole house surge protector and they were not sure what is going on. The power had to be shut off and the chinchillas thought it was night time and got up wanting to be fed and starting to wheel. Party time!! The electrician found a burnt wire on the transformer but said our power line has about reached the lenght of it's life and they will have to replace it before long.

My son was off and it was cage cleaning day and we got a late start. We cleaned the bathroom and vacuumed too. We did 3 loads of laundry in the pole barn and I did get my outdoor chores done. He was tired and extremely cranky. He went to taekwondo and it took me the rest of the evening to get all the work done.

One of the lawyers called and the judge gave them a lead on 3 people who might be my BIL's legal guardian. The lawyer is going to talk to him and reassure him too.

Meanwhile you know you are getting down in the fall, I think that is a much better term for it, I hear too may people fall in to negative mode at this time of year. The so called holidays are major stress makers for women. We made it that way with our great expectations which actually translate in to, work, over indulgence and overspending. No wonder we get stressed out and ill tempered.
HUGS M, go ahead, think about it and Design your own happiness from this day forward.

I have very little voice so DH answers the phone. I do have some important calls to make.
I am still at the computer way too long. I am able to sleep at least 6 hours but rarely can I get to 7 or 8. My melatonin is a really low dose, but it works for this body. I hope things go much better soon. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
