The word busy is an under statement when it comes to describing my life at the moment. I barely have enough time to sleep. I wake up at 3:30 a.m. to be at work by 4:30 in order to be home early for my kids when they get home from school. After dinner, homework, piano lessons, bath time, play time, it is then time for me to start landscaping for the day, sometimes working another 2-3 hours on my back yard. This has been my life for the past couple of weeks. I am a little burned out to say the least. I leave for work in the dark and don't come inside until way after dark. After the light is gone and I can no longer see to do landscaping, I am inside reupholstering lawn furniture. I often contemplate how much more I can accomplish if I didn't have to sleep. My sister thinks I am crazy. My husband thinks I am crazy and maybe I am crazy, but I know all the hard work I am putting in will be worth it in the end. My goal is to be completely done with my backyard within two weeks. E.'s pool party is then so I want everything to be perfect. Hopefully, I won't end up killing myself by then.
