Catching Up With More Than Just Yard Work

The Back Forty, originally uploaded by CraftyGuy.

Another round of too-much-time has elapsed since when I last blogged. It has been an insane couple of months or so - especially the past 4 or 5 weeks. Without going into too much detail at the moment (leaving me will additional blog-fodder for later), here is a summary of the proceedings as of late.

Let's start with the flu bug that went through the house with a vengeance. Stupid flu shot didn't do squat this year. Grrrr. I've only in the past few days gotten over this stupid cough. Though neither Bethanie nor Patti could just have the flu; when all was said and done, they both ended up on the ever-popular Z-Pack to knock out the tail end of their health issues (I have a story about my own experience with the Z-Pack, which I will save for another time). But everyone is now better or nearly there.

Work has been a bear, as usual. On one hand, I am the only one there doing what I do. On the other hand, it's job security. Plus there is stuff in the works that, once it comes to fruition later this year, will mean I will have a few more responsibilities at work (with which - I am so hoping - will include a bit more of the 'ol green stuff).

The lawn mower was sent out for repairs three weeks ago, and only became available yesterday. Do you know how quickly a lawn can turn into a pasture? I'll give you a hint: it's less than three weeks. The photo gives you an idea of what I'll be contending with.

That's a good start on the catching up for now. I can elaborate on these, plus get you caught up on some other things, when next I blog - which will be considerably sooner than a month from now, I assure you.
