High Speed Burn Out

Today after church we finally picked up our new bed and dining room set.  We purchased them at a moving sale over two months ago, but due to a comedy of poor timing and bad accidents, it took this long to actually get them into our home.  The bed is set up and waiting for my guests — I’m going to let them decide who gets to sleep in it.

The dining room table is set up, too.  First we had to take the patio table (yes, you read that correctly) out of the dining room and put it on the back deck.  Then we set up the new table and put both leaves in it because we’re planning on having a houseful of company tomorrow!

We’re almost ready, but I still have food to cook and floor to mop. I also have to finish tidying my office so someone can sleep in it.   I have too much to do in too little time.

I feel like my life these past few days have been lived in the fast lane on the freeway.  This evening I started looking for some exit signs and my beloved Amoeba intercepted my collision course with total destruction and took me out for a burger and a beer.

It is odd that I should be so tired after spending 3 days at the wonderful resort, but the bed wasn’t all the comfortable, and then there was the sleep deprivation caused by the traveling itself.   Anyway, I would love to come and visit you all but I’m so busy I don’t have time — and when I do sit, I am just too tired to think.

Plus Thom, Susan and her kids, and possibly Sylvia (I haven’t heard a final word on that yet) will be here in the morning and then we really will be busy and I won’t have time to visit!  But I bet all the fun and laughter will help revive me!


  1. No worries. You’ve got a plate full currently. Enjoy your company and we’ll see you in the comments when time permits.

  2. Oh, I am so sorry I won’t be able to make it — one friggin’ thing after another, but I know you guys are going to have so much fun! I spent an hour on the phone with Susan this evening and she’s so excited about tomorrow and I’m excited for all of you!! Maybe next time things will work out better! Have a great time, Quilly!


  3. I bet it WILL! And darn… you’re going to be SO busy LIVING life that you won’t have time to write about it… 🙂 I LIKE that!

  4. I hope you enjoy your guests. Don´t worry about us. We´ll just be waiting for you to throw us a tid bit…. 🙂

  5. I always need a vacation to recover from vacation — Quilly thank you for such a welcome we’ve had today, I feel at home and LOVE it here. I love seeing you and Thom together “live” too!
