Working

To those of you who I talk to regularly and are wondering where I’ve been lately…no, I didn’t fall of the face of the earth.  I started working over 63 hours a week in a bid to catch up on our bills and get on better financial footing.  Also, the fact that I work nights throws my whole schedule into disarray, since even on my day off, I am awake at night,and sleeping during the day.  Case in point, Now.  It is 2:33AM, and here I sit typing while my whole family is in bed.  I worked Saturday night, got off work at 0730, and went to church.  I went to sleep at 1230, but then woke again at 1600 (4pm) to go to church again.  We got home from church, ate supper, then I fell asleep in front of the TV at about 2100 (9pm.).  I woke up at 0200.  So I got over 8 hours of (broken) sleep.

Today is my son’s birthday (observed), so I will be staying up most of the day.  I will probably take a nap, but since I have Monday night off, I will try to spend most of it with my family.  However, this week I am working Tuesday through Saturday, 12 hour shifts.  Ugh.

I think the check for 50 grand from God keeps getting lost in the mail.

  1. And the guy who was supposed to roto-till my half-acre garden is probably passed out in a bar somewhere… I was doing alright until I found the sheet of corrugated tin… where the corn patch was supposed to go… and I used the mattock to unearth a strip of it about 4 feet by two feet and down to one foot deep – and quit when I noticed it was angling DOWN… so was probably a full sheet… which would mean the other end of it would be about 3 feet down and I’d have to claw my way through and shovel about 72 cubic feet of clay. So adjustments in re designated corn patches are in order… Maybe we can plant flowers in the part that’s already roto-tilled – maybe sell them for the cut flower market? ;-D

    Now, see… if God sent me $50K I’d do what the Minnesota farmer did when he won a $million in the lottery up there. When they asked him what he was going to do with it, he started listing the equipment he was going to buy, the sheds and fence he was going to build… in other words he said, “Oh, I’ll just keep farming until it’s all gone.”
