Daze Off...

I need a vacation.
I've been working for 15 days straight without a day off, and I'm smashed.
Totally.

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.
Balance.
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!

Your clients are so very fortunate. You are the best there is! That woman who did the watering for you is a sweetheart. Hope you enjoyed your little respite!
Take care.

Thanks, Barb!
She was a princess to help me out like that. Just what I needed...a few hours with nothing pending that I HAD to do. I am taking a bouquet of flowers to her tomorrow!

Take some time for YOU, every day. Even if it is just an hour.
Not worth getting burned out.
Plan a trip, even if it is for 2010.

Thanks for the reminder, chiaro!
I know this, but sometimes forget it in the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A welcome reminder, thank you!!!
