Friday, Every form of Refuge has a price.

     Yesterday I was tooling along in the shop as I have been all week and I had planned on getting a few more dresses out.  Hubs and I made a plan to  have him till the garden and he was complaining about not having a fresh stock of clean underwear.  How long has Sis been gone?  Yes I am way behind on laundry and again on ironing.  Mom's bed ruffle needs to be ironed and put back on her bed.

     Hub's wanted to clean the chicken coop first as he will till the manure into the garden.  This is no easy job.  I had also spoken to him about having rock delivered.  He said it was okay.  Little did I now that it would be delivered while he was in the middle of cleaning the coop.  They also delivered way too much. A good portion was delivered into the street which meant I had to leave my sewing and him the coop.  We worked like dogs for three hours to get the pile 18 inches from the curb.  That is the legal limit it could stick out over night.  Then we lit the pile with outdoor lights.  I could do nothing by 6 last night but lay in a chair and groan.

     I actually ordered a very bad pizza, salad, chicken combo.  Expensive and awful.  We ate it but it was gross.  I could not cook. I could not get upstairs to reheat.  I could not. Now I have to stay in the shop today as I have clients until past 6 p.m. and at least 3 brides. The shop is a wreck and the house needs love.  My laundry is beyond, beyond. I have not taken down the Easter things.  It is only 11:00 in the morning and I am already a sweaty mess.

     Why, why do I let things get like this?  Why can't I be more organized?

     Oh and my baby brother is due in today with his wife and kids.  He will stay at my sisters.  I really do not need to worry about the house as he is not what I would call the best housekeeper, but I would like to at least have a meal for him. 

     I don't think we will be tilling the garden this weekend.  I have to sew, move rock, laundry, move rock, clean, move rock, plant the flowers I bought, move rock, put away Easter, move rock.

     I have been so good at debt payoff, I thought I was invincible. I am not.

     In my favor, I have gotten dressed and fixed my hair and put on lipstick which looks so nice with my bib overalls.  I have cleaned both bathrooms upstairs, and swept my shop.  I have started the laundry and have clean laundry piling the bed in the master bedroom. I took all the wintered over geraniums out of the back hall and have them sunning on the deck.

     I will hit my machines in a few minutes and try to bust out these now 6 prom dresses soon to be more.  I think hamburgers on the back deck for dinner.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

Kim

  1. Moving rock sounds like the least appealing thing I could ever do. I am sorry it was overdelivered and dumped in a bad spot.
    Ben gay perhaps?

  2. I feel your pain as you describe it. So sorry. You deserve a weekend to let that body rest, but I know seriously, that is not going to happen. Take care, Kim.

    1. My husband is not very happy about this so he has to have it perfect right now. He never has to have anything perfect just his way of getting back at me......

  3. Oh no, brother around? I am surprised you all would entertain him at all after all I have read about him. Can you put him on the rock to be moved? When it rains trouble, it pours.

    1. He may not be the brother who causes so many problems. I think she has more than one.

    2. She is right he is not that brother. But my youngest brother does not do menial work. He plays video games and solves the problems of the universe while mom pays his child support and had always purchased every car he has owned he is 51 years old. We have a very strained relationship.

  6. More organized - are you kidding? I have never seen someone so organized who does so much for so many ALL. THE. TIME. You are absolutely amazing how you manage to get so much done with everything going on!!! Your explanation made me laugh when you were saying "I could not cook. I could not reheat, I could not" - reminded me of the Dr. Seuss book Green Eggs & Ham :)

    2. Sorry, Kim, I agree with Sue. You get more done in a day than most people do in a week - the absolute opposite of disorganized. You just have sky-high standards for yourself.

    1. Well I stopped work that I really needed to do and took an hour to go to the store then got ready for a barbecue. They called and told me they were now vegan . So I took another our to rustle up some salads and things for them to eat. Then they called and said they were not coming over. I cried, ate candy for dinner. and Hub's cleaned it up.

  11. Be careful moving all of the rocks. You are very busy and don't want to get hurt.
