Work Work Work

Sorry if it seems like I dropped off the face of the earth lately.  This month has been particularly busy for me, what with our anniversary getaway, a week long business trip to Atlanta, then came last week which turned out to be the work week from hell, simply put.  We had 2 huge projects going on simultaneously.  Both required driving an hour each way to get there.

Let me give you a taste of my schedule.  I started work Monday morning at 5 am, ended at 8 pm.  Little did I know that it would be the shortest workday of the week!  The next day started at 5 and ended at midnight, then 8:30, an 11:30 and a 9 to wrap up on Friday.  The only sit down time was  the time spent driving.  Lunch and dinner times we grabbed something to eat as we worked.  I was so exhausted that I slept in until 9:30 Saturday morning!

Saturday was spent on the work computer completing some of the planning for this week’s schedule and catching up with all the normal work I missed last week by being on the road.  Even Sunday was spent on work tasks.

I’m not complaining, mind you, just trying to explain why I’ve been such a bad blogger.  I love my job and enjoy the diversity it provides.  There is usually a nice balance of office time and field work, with my normal workday lasting 10 hours.   It’s never boring!

I have 2 more tough weeks to go to complete one of the projects started last week.  Thankfully the other is done.

If you don’t see much of me during that time, please don’t give up on me.  I’ll be back, I promise! 




  1. That's a lot of work and some crazy schedule but in this economy, you apparently have a great job you enjoy and that's wonderful. We look forward to when your schedule eases up a bit so you can blog because your posts are so much fun!

  2. Good to know that it's just work keeping you busy.

  3. Not boring is good but try to rest up. Thought of you last Thursday when we drove by a huge pile of furniture on the side of the rode with a "free" sign. We were in a Mini Cooper with three people so we could not get a thing! hugs♥olive

  4. Glad that you are okay, and I will be waiting when things slow down. You are not being a "bad blogger", we all have times when we are busy.

  5. Girl those are some long work days! Take care of yourself!!

  6. Wow Rose you are putting a lot of mileage on your vehicle and yourself... lol... Glad to hear it was just work, I was wondering where you got to. I check everyday, miss your posts.

    All I could think while reading this, was thank goodness we got that garage cleaned out when we did, you would have missed your Oct. 31 deadline for sure with that schedule. lol

    There is just not enough hours in the day anymore. It seems the older we get the more we pile on ourselves.

    Have a great week, I ordered good traveling weather for you... xo

    Hugs, Deb

  7. You are one busy lady! What is it you do for work? Sounds like you enjoy it which is a really good thing considering the hours!

  8. Wowzers! Now that's a schedule!! We'll all be here when you get to sit down and take a breather and write something fabulous about something fabulous you've made or put together!!

    Good luck with the next couple of weeks!


  9. Hey there.....just found your blog and LOVE it! My neighbor and I like to troll our neighborhoods and beyond on Big Trash day and get fun stuff too! We call it Big Trash Boutique. Can't wait to see what you'll do next~
