I'm exhausted. Tired tired tired. I've been too tired to blog lately. Yesterday I was so sleepy I couldn't put words together to make any sense at all... so just gave up. Mike and I have been spending all of our free time ("free time" = when we are not at work or asleep) at our old house still getting it ready to sell. And we're just about finished there. What a relief it will be to walk away from it and spend some time at our cabin!
Our poor cabin... there are boxes sitting around and curtains waiting to be hung there. And so many projects we're itching to get to. But when we're gone all weekend and don't get home after work until 6:00 and go to bed at 8:30 (since we get up at 4:15), there just isn't much time to make much progress there. Cook supper, eat, clean up, relax for maybe 45 minutes before hitting the sack. It is nice to sleep there though, even if it's all we get right now. When it rains, we can hear it clearly on the roof, and we can see the trees and stars while lying in bed. And for some reason, we both sleep better there.
And, I'm not complaining, mind you. We knew it would be crazy like this. I always prep my brain when I know an unpleasant time or event is awaiting me. This coming weekend should be our last time at the house working on it. And it's not nearly as bad as it was when we were remodeling the condo for what seemed like eternity. But it took me four and a half hours last Saturday just to clean the refrigerator! It was from top to bottom, inside and out and I had to take out all the drawers and shelves, etc. and clean each piece. There were lots of pieces to be cleaned! It looks brand new now though and for a 10-year-old fridge, that's pretty good.
So... things are moving forward big time, but just at what feels like a snail's pace. What is very cool though is that spring is beginning to break here and the timing couldn't be more perfect to put one's house up for sale - and start playing around with a garden and outdoor projects. And I can't wait to see the bare trees at our farm begin to leaf out and then cover our cabin with a green canopy. Before too long the frogs will be croaking down at the frog pond and I'll be pickin' tomatoes.
