Long Days, Stress And Work. We Need a Break.

Rambling On… 24 January 2020.

My man has hit the ground running and hasn’t stopped.

I feel like we’ve both been running even though I spend most of my time sitting at my computer.

Hubby and I are exhausted and feel as if we need a weekend away, but I can’t see that happening anytime soon.

For the last four months we’ve been so busy we’ve been falling into bed, but since we’ve also been a little stressed and our minds have been whirling at a hundred miles an hour we haven’t been sleeping properly.

Things are changing rapidly with my man’s new business and although his second week on the job has almost gone, he’d still booked up five weeks in advance.

Apparently, fencers are in high demand in our area and so many queries and customers are going un-serviced.

In the first two weeks, while working during the day and quoting at night, he did forty quotes. After working his ass off all day, taking time out to eat dinner, he’s back at his computer to figure out how much a job will cost him to do.

I’ve been helping him out as much as I can while doing my own work and running a household. I’ve been entering his quotes into the software program and preparing his quotes but so far, I haven’t been helping him with the finance bookwork. Once he has a handle, understands more fully on how the bookkeeping software works, he can teach me, and I’ll give him a hand to lighten his load.

It’s going to take us time to get into a new routine, so we aren’t both working late into the night, but at the moment there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day.

On a lighter note, my daughter will be coming for a visit, not this weekend but the next. I can’t wait to see her, give her a hug and tell her face to face how much I love her. Even though she’s an adult and has her own life, I still miss her heaps.

My hubby and my kids are the most important people to me in the world and I would do anything for them.

Whilst I’ve been working hard and helping my hubby, it’s been so quiet during the day. I’ve been missing my fur babies and have seriously thought long and hard about looking for another dog.

However, I’m not sure another pet—no that’s not the right word—getting another family member at this stage in our lives is feasible.

My son and his fiancée won’t be living with us forever.

If my hubby and I want to go away, we’d have to take our dog with us or have someone babysit.

Some of the places we go camping are national parks and don’t allow domestic animals on site. So, though I miss Tasha and Toby heaps, we’re going to wait a bit longer before deciding on whether to get another fur baby.

What Have I Been Reading?

I’ve just finished reading Susan Stoker’s Securing Piper (SEAL of Protection: Legacy Book 3). Ms. Stoker never disappoints and draws you in from the first page to the very last. If you haven’t read any of her books, give her a try.

I will leave it there for now.
Enjoy your week ahead, until next week.
