Resting Up

We are taking a much needed rest this week. We worked ourselves into the ground last week preparing for the bridal shower. We had to make everything look so nice. The yard work in this heat alone is enough to nearly kill a person. We set dishes from the shower aside to be washed on Monday and went to bed early Sunday night. We normally wouldn't do that but we were so tired, neither of us had the energy to wash dishes. On Monday I went to work and Dawn did her best to get dishes washed and things back in their place. We went to bed early Monday night too. Here it is Tuesday and we are both starting to feel a little more rested but plan to turn in early tonight too.

We both love the house we live in and will miss it when we sell it, but the truth of the matter is that we are getting older and it is too much work keeping up a twenty-four-hundred square foot house and two acres. The Texas summers can be horrible and neither of us care for the heat. We are so ready to live in our little cottage on wheels and let someone else do the lawn!

  1. I know what you mean!! We had 2400 sq.ft. in our last house but we didn't have the acreage you have. Our yard was tough to maintain though. You become a slave to the house/yard.

    The heat can just zap your energy! I find it hard to get motivated in this extreme heat.

    I hope you all get all rested up. Take care and stay as cool as possible. :-)
