Lazy Daze

Today and tomorrow are a holidays for my school district in Wyoming. It is not nationally recognized, but a holiday none the less. This is Fall Break, but in Wyoming, it is more commonly called, Deer Hunters Holiday. Most of my students will hunt, or have a parent hunt, and all will know someone who hunts. I am going to go this year as well.

Since I have the day off, I should get to sleep in, right? Not a chance. First of all, with our five school age kids to get out of the house, it gets very noisy around here very early. Secondly, (and most importantly) my brain says, "Its time to get up. Get out of bed NOW!"

So naturally, I got up, but its vacation, so I can lay around and do nothing all day--right? Fat chance. I have chores that have to be done while I'm off, because there is no time to do them otherwise. The garage needs cleaning so we can get a vehicle in there for the winter (this is almost done, but needs finishing). We have tomatoes that need bottling. I don't know why, but this has fallen to me this year. I need to do some laundry (yes, it is my turn, my wife has done more than her share lately).

I'm sure I'll find more, but that is enough to start with. Maybe if I work hard enough today, I can sleep in tomorrow. Yeah, right.

Take care. Stick.

I wish I had some tomatoes to put up. My garden was a flop this year.
