Burning The Candle At Both Ends

The last couple of days have been very hectic. Actually, that word is probably a little light. I left home late Sunday night after 24 hours in the ‘city’ house doing home improvement projects. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday I worked all day and then went immediately to the ‘country’ house to work some more. The push was on this week to finish the stone on the fireplace so the contractor could stay on schedule and get the flooring laid. It was close to midnight before I went to bed the first two nights.  We finished up last night just after 9 pm. I rolled back into town at 1 am this morning. Over the next few days I will work, do laundry, clean and pack, go to baseball games and do it all over again. I can feel the exhaustion setting in. The last hour of my drive last night was grueling. I will need to eat well and go for a walk today to maintain the energy level. It’s gray and cloudy outside. It would be nice if the sun would shine. 

I have heard it said that there is a cost for progress. No doubt that is true but it is often difficult to quantify. I love my city, the city I grew up in. Right now I just don’t have the time or energy to enjoy anything in it. Over these next few weeks I have a few lunch dates with friends. I will visit some of my favorite food joints but really that’s about it. 

On a positive note I won’t have to list my house. My realtor sold it for the full asking price already. Nice! Sometimes you just gotta roll with it and this time I earned a full strike!
