To all my friends in the US, an early Happy Thanksgiving! I've decided to take another week off to finish what I started. Right now, I'm worried it might finish me off too. LOL!
The past week has been a GRUELING week of of 18 hours days. I don't think I ever worked so hard in my life. Everything hurts on me.
For those of you who don't know, hubby lives 300 miles away. We're trying to get his house ready to put on the market for next year so he can retire and we can live like normal people. What is normal anyway?
Most of my chores at Casa South involved cleaning or throwing stuff out. You cannot imagine what you can accumulate in nearly 40 years of marriage. (I see a massive garage sale in our future.)
Then came the painting. Lots of painting.
I'm still not done. Lots more to do inside and out, but I think I got the extra-hard stuff out of the way. Now it's a matter of fixing anything that's broken, painting the outside of the house, and clearing five acres of overgrown woods.
I'm hoping I can finish everything in three more trips.
We took the weekend off and we've been vegging on the couch and catching up on movies we'd missed. But Monday starts another week of endless chores. (I swear, if I'm ever rich, I will never scrub another floor or wall again!)
How have you been? If you're in the US, are you traveling or planning Thanksgiving at home? How about all you NaNo-ites? How did the writing go? I'll have more internet access this week so I'll be able to catch up on your blogs.
I will be back on December 2nd with harrowing tales of BBQ, (the goat) and other (more delicious) stories about smoking our first turkey.
It's a bit chilly here in north Texas so I'm battening down the hatches and putting out more hay for the animals. Me? I'm experimenting with cranberry margaritas. It warms you right up. :o)
