I need a vacation.
I've been working for 15 days straight without a day off, and I'm smashed.
With a farewell party for a friend last night plus running my butt off moving a water sprinkler every couple of hours for newly installed sod at a property I'm looking after...this weekend's shot and I'm exhausted.
Funny how sometimes we have oodles of time on our hands and twiddle our thumbs for something to do.
Other days, we run ourselves into the ground trying to keep up with our to-do list.
That's what I need.
A little busy and a little rest every single day.
I caught a nice break this afternoon. When I arrived at the property ready to move that damned sprinkler once more, I discovered that the neighbour had done it for me! She walked over to the yard, and said,
"You go home, take some time off and I'll water the yard for you. Now, get out of here!"
I left, laughing. This is my kind of afternoon...nothing to do and several hours in which to do it!
“How can there be so much difference between a day off and an off day?”
