Errands and More Chores

Today I went to the bank, grocery shopping,cooked penne pasta, baked  muffins, baked turkey, did loads of dishes, baby sat for an hour, shopped and bought a new aquarium, put that together,cleaned the bath and kitchen, did 2 loads of laundry, unloaded and carried up a flight of stairs..one antique cabinet, cleaned it and filled it with pretty china pieces and now I am done!  I like getting things finished..sometimes being on a roll is painful!  PHEW..

She was a smart lady and constantly on the go until she died at the age of 92.

FranM, you had a very smart grandma! I like her words of wisdom. Time to get things done..When I am on vacation, I do very little and squander time. Weekends, I have too many projects. Today is sit on the sofa and Live in EP land!

My grandma used to say "work like you're going to live forever; pray like you're going to die tomorrow". I can't say I work as hard as she did, but I often feel like I don't have time to do the things I really want to do.

My folks owned a seasonal summer fishing resort when I was growing up. I worked my butt off during the week and on the weekends! Guess that's why I have good work ethics!

Yep PDD..my mom Made us work all Saturday till about 4pm.Then we could do TV time.Geez..I'm my Mother!

My Saturday: Get up at 5AM, play on EP, take a bath and get dressed, go out for breakfast, do a few loads of laundry, play some more on EP and now waiting for hubby to wake up from his nap so we can eat dinner! Gosh I am just sooooo tired!!!<br />

Actually, I can and do work my butt off...I was taught to work before you have any relaxation time!

You have a good point ladee..Our generation was raised to not be lazy and let things go to HECK! I agree DewDuster...Sleep will come easy tonight. I'll wake up to a cool cabinet and a sharp aquarium! My big fish will be happier too.

I can remember being so physical and busy. I also recall the wonderful felling of being tired and knowing sleep will be come easy. Enjoy...DD
