Too much work makes for dull posts. We have a big safety fair / treat or treat event coming up at work and as chairman it has taken over my life at the moment. Most days I can't walk into the garage without two or three people needing just a minute to speak with me. Which is actually a good thing because it's wonderful to see my coworkers so enthusiastic. Things are coming together and I hope we have good weather so we get a good turn out.
I don't know if it is stress or just rotten timing but "the change" has been hitting me hard the last two weeks. I'm up half the night throwing the covers on and off and I'm driving the kids at work crazy turning the heat on and off. The hormone swings are driving me nuts too. One minute I'm up and the next I'm a weepy mess. Don't let anyone tell you that men don't go through the change too, John's been suffering right along with me!
We had the kids over Monday and we were both exhausted from the lack of sleep. I had picked up some stickers for them to color and they all did a few. Liz loved them so much that she stayed right at the kitchen table the whole evening working on them. The other three worked on hidden pictures and watched a movie. As good as they were this week, John and I were both so tired that we both fell asleep in our chairs shortly after they left.
We've had a few fall like days but the weather has warmed back up. I have a whole list of things I'd like to get done in the garden and I'm trying to get a little here and there. I opted not to work this weekend, hoping that I can get caught up both inside and out.
