Burn Out

Have you ever had a lot to do in a short period of time?
Here is what I have been up to this other words...why the blog has been a bit neglected.

Re-carpeted and freshly painted new office - took two days
Closed out 2015 and Opened 2016 - bookkeeping
Worked on the Town Warrant.
Confirmed amounts regarding the 2016 Town Budget
Worked on the State's web-portal to input the budget and warrant articles for the 2016 Warrant
Generated W2's and 1099's.
Posted the Warrant and Budget for Town Meeting.
Attended 4 selectmen meetings (2 regular and 2 special)

By the time I get home and settled down (dinner, straightening up the house, lessons with the kids and reading to the kids before bed), I just want to lay down and sleep.

I am sitting here, at the office, trying to psych myself up to work on new projects that are due in February.  I. just. can't. get. myself. motivated.  In others words...Burn Out.

Twelve Random Things about Me

1) Clowns freak me out - I do not like them and will avoid them at all costs

2) Going to the Circus is not my idea of a fun time - see number 1.

3) I enjoy putting puzzles together.  I have 4 that are waiting to be put together.

4) I have several books in a large pile waiting to be read.

5) I like eating ice-cream on very cold days

6) Chocolate is my friend, especially on days when my stress level is through the roof

7) I don't like birds but I think our chickens are quite adorable

8) I own 4 sewing machines and haven't used them in several years

9) I want to learn to crochet

10) Huge messes drive me crazy...ask my family!

11) I love cows

12) I enjoy reading out loud to my kids and they enjoy it too!!!

Happy New Year

2016 is here!  No fireworks, no banging of pots and pans, no loud shouting.  Peace and quiet is how the new year came into our home.  I am sitting here in the dark, listening to the stillness of the house.  All is good :)

I wish all my friends and family a blessing filled 2016.
