The Grass Is Greener

Over the weekend, I noticed that the grass is starting to come up in odd, uneven patches, both in the front and back yards. On Monday, I noticed how green it was starting to turn already.

And yesterday, something fell from the sky that should make yard maintenance a lot less challenging this summer. But more on that later …

I’ve decided that if I give up eating and sleeping, I have a fair chance at even coming close to doing all the things that need doing. I try not to even think much about the house right now as a result but it’s hard not to. I want to cry every time I go in the bathroom. And the kitchen? I can’t even have that conversation. I have neither the time nor the energy for it.

Right now I have to focus on the restaurant and on work.

I move to my new office on Friday morning and I’ve yet to put a single thing into a box. In fact, I still have three drawers to clean out! My assistant is going to help me box things up, so in between meeting a few pressing deadlines, I should be able to make a bit of progress today.

I have some more pictures and frames to work on for the restaurant before we go back this weekend. I also need to gather up some more hardware to take along. Turns out I didn’t have as varied a selection with me as I thought. And I’m not sure if the Easter weekend project is on or not. That’s supposed to be a discussion topic this weekend.

In the meantime, I’m trying to pace myself and prioritize.
