Fill in the blank in your own way: I’m so busy and so tired that _______.
I’ve got a great one, and it’s not even farming related. It’s just life.
First, a little background. I found myself having to write two books this winter (long story, will post to other blog eventually,) so I’ve barely noticed the ice, cold, and snow as I’ve had my nose pressed to my monitor, my body hunched over the keyboard.
I took two trips in February, both working trips. Melissa has been working like a crazy woman for the US Census (mail your form in or she’ll send someone to knock on your door!), working 10-12 hour days.
So for nearly two weeks I’ve been doing all the chores, the dogs, the cooking, the dishes, everything, while she drives around in the incredible fog we’ve been having. Seriously, fog day after day. I feel as if I’m living inside my own little dome, and the rest of the world has disappeared.
So yesterday I ran around doing errands, getting the car tires fixed because both rear tires were leaking, then to a meeting, then dropping off the car at Melissa’s meeting so she had a way home, then calling a neighbor for a ride home. Karen dropped me off and immediately drove away, thank god, otherwise she would have seen this:

I stood there, unsure why the front door didn’t open, so I pressed UNLOCK again.
I might need to get a bit more sleep.
