last day of vacation

I can’t believe I have to go back to work tomorrow. And tomorrow isn’t even a telecommuting day! I should’ve scheduled my vacation better. Yesterday really beat the crap out of me–every last muscle on my body is sore today. Knowing that I’m not going to be in the mood to do any work after grouting the bathroom this evening, I did a bunch of stuff this morning and afternoon–ironed clothes, cleaned the floors, cleaned the kitchen, and various other boring things.

After Jake went to school, I laid on the couch for nearly two hours. And I’m still tired. After he got home, we took the pups outside for some exercise and we picked the rest of the tomatoes and removed the plants from the garden. I also picked a few peppers (my peppers are still growing like mad) and some brussels sprouts. My carrots are still in there, too, but they got a late start. So, I’ll leave them in for a few more weeks and then I’ll harvest them. Before you know it, it’ll be time to plant garlic again.

Anyway, I think I’m going to have to go to bed early tonight if there’s any chance that I’m going to wake up for work tomorrow.
