Yep, I do NOT recall ever being as "Exhausted!!" as I have been on several occasions over the last 6-8 weeks.  In fact, yesterday exhausted the supply of blog posts, for the first time since February of 2012!

Over these last few weeks we have moved out of our BELOVED house of 31 years and into a newer, neater, smaller, easier-to-maintain garden home.  The move as worn us out!  Several times I have fallen into bed, Exhausted!!

I have discovered that my capacity exceeds my tolerance.  Three days back, I had no exam to give, and wasn't pushed to grade the one I had given on Monday, so I devoted to day to work around the new house.  There was, and still is, much to be done.  We had a huge mound of boxes left unpacked in the garage, plus my workshop was still a huge mess, and... the grass needed mowing.

So, I, rather we, did it all.  We got the boxes cleared out of the garage enough to pull a car in.  A car IN the garage, imagine that!

And, after all this, for some crazy reason, I felt led to MOW the grass!  What??  Yes, I am crazy.

At bedtime (8:30) I was ready to collapse.  The shower felt great, but the bed felt even better.

But there is some satisfaction about getting a lot done, and even a strange satisfaction for wearing myself out.

Go figure.
