For now anyway. I am exhausted. It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't have to work! But I do. And that means I get up at 5 am. And get home from work around 4:30 pm. Then I check on all the animals, feed the dogs. Feed the goats. Sit with the sheep. Sit with the goats. Play with the dogs. Pet the cats. Feed and pet the chickens. Sit with the goats. Play with the dogs. Wash up. Eat something and go to bed! Somewhere in there I also have to clean the house, cook meals (that's easy ~ all I eat is frozen pizza! "Jacks, Naturally Rising Crust, sausage & pepperoni combination". Not to mention doing the shopping, paying the bills, washing clothes, cleaning the barn, keeping up with e-mail (something I am notoriously BAD at!), and posting to my blogs. I need the long hours of daylight that we have in the summer to get it all done. When it's dark early, I want to go to BED early. It has rained for the past week.
Tomorrow, I'm going to Minneapolis/St.Paul (not sure which) to see my very favorite violinist/composer, "Endre Rieu", perform in a concert. My son gets me two tickets, every year, for my Christmas present! Gotta love my "Porkchop" ~ I obviously raised him right! Last year Katie and I went together and it was wonderful. Tomorrow, my oldest daughter, Pam (my Princess) and I are going. We'll stay in a hotel tomorrow night and have breakfast and do a little shopping before returning home on Thursday. I'm very much looking forward to spending time with my girl and look forward to the long car ride, almost as much as the concert! Of course, Pam's doing the driving so that means I'll get to KNIT!!!Please, don't get me wrong...I'm NOT complaining! I LOVE my life! I'm just saying....
Going to bed early tonight. It must almost be time...it's getting DARK already!!!
