Day 251: Outta Time...

Thursday, September 08, 2011

...outta money, and outta patience, lol. Nothing new here, then.

I'd hoped to get to a couple of things but today has been unusually hectic around here. The early-AM grocery run (which takes longer because I do a menu, complete list, all that), another interview with a paver (estimates & samples), and a tree-trimmer, as there are several trees in the yard and seems like most of them need pruning.

Add to that the usual housework and meals - no wonder Himself retired. He's got it easy now--!

The weather finally cleared up a little this afternoon, but too late in the day to do much in the way of yardwork (or pond-mucking, which still needs more work), so if the weather's decent tomorrow I hope to make a dent in it.

And it doesn't look as tho we'll be able to come over to the States next month after all. Between the driveway costing more than we'd anticipated and the tree-trimmer on top of that, there goes our vacation fund. Ah well, better to catch up all that and have everything trim and tidy for next spring.

Oh, and I got 200 bluebell bulbs for the equivalent of about $12. Can't beat it with a stick, lol.

Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are!

    I'm disappointed you aren't coming over. I was gonna rob a bank & fly back to meet you. All well, just gives me more time to save up, in order to circumvent the bank robbing component.

    And yes, I'm always out of money, time & stamina. Certainly gets discouraging, doesn't it?

    Seems like all our projects end up costing more.

    I have a budget like that, too... "emergencies" seem to know when you have something "good" planned, and crop up just in time to make you think twice or even thrice.

    Rest well, friend Kasey! emoticon

    Hi Kasey,

    Sorry to hear that you are not able to go to the US, I know you were looking forward to that, however, you have been busy and going to be even more so planting all those bulbs. Have a good sleep
    Love Kerrie

    Busy days take their toll sometimes and time runs away....

    Sorry to hear about your vacation fund but as you said at least the jobs will all be done and the vacation fund can build up and maybe next year
