Rollin, rollin, rolling.........

Another "work, work, work my butt off day" and it would be worth it but my butt is still there. LOL. Today I ran through all the songs I could come up with about work while I slaved away in the pole barn doing 6 loads of laundry. My favorites were "Carwash" and "Sixteen Tons". And of course I love "Rawhide". Other good ones - "Taking Care of Business". "Money For Nothing". "The Money Boat Song (Day-O)" We use to sing songs like these at the last place I worked to entertain the patients. They totally loved it. The owner and his wife would come in and everyone would be laughing and smiling and they would want to know why we were all so happy and we would wink at the patients, smirk, and clam up. LOL. It was our secret and no one wanted them in on it, especially the patients.

It started out cold today with freezing fog but warmed up nicely into the lower 50s with sun. I had tons of work to catch up on inside and outside. I loved being outside. The birds seem to think it is Spring. They are starting to sing. I saw tons of deer today and squirrels and rabbits and of course, Baby. I took down the Valentine's Day decorations and put up the St. Patrick Day ones. I had lots of compost to take out, recyclables, and I burned the trash. A lot of my perennials are coming up. My transplants in the green house are doing great.

I had a lot of work to do for hubby today regarding the estate and he had a lot of work to do too on his lunch period at work but we got done almost all of what we needed to do today.

I'm pretty pooped and my hide is really raw right now. I am ready to bed!

    Loved your song choices. Nothing like singing while you work. It sure does make the work seem a little easier.

    Have a GREAT weekend.

    You make a day of chores sound like fun!! I'm thinking: aww, wish I was doing laundry in the pole barn and singing!!!! It's been spring like here, too. Big snow event tomorrow ...... about an inch of slush is predicted. One of the biggest snowfalls this season!! LOL It's all over the news! Hope you have a great Saturday....nothin special here. Just regular Saturday chores. Keeping the son's dog for the weekend. And the daughter's kids tomorrow evening. Life is good.

    LOL like your song choices we used to sing takin care of biz. a lot when at work. Did you work in long term care? we also did fun things and owners/ higher ups didn't need to know. Depended what RN was working what you could do or not.
    I miss my old people some days but not the work, just the caring.
    Snowing here, but not bad, apparently the roads are not great. 50th bday party for a bil whos family is mostly on PEI so doubt many will be coming as their weather and on the way here is usually worse than ours.
    Today first thing paint the spots I missed with first coat, then later re do entire walls and ceiling. Hubby will get the start on the plumbing maybe as we didnt do anything yesterday but he says he is not doing renos on weekend. so whatever I have painting to do so will feel as if I accomplished something.
    Have to call dd and see how she is, came down with a flu bug within 3 hrs and felt nasty last night.
    have a super day!!! glad you got your laundry done!
