    Anyone else feeling overwhelmed?

    With all the yard work, deck to stain, driveway to repair, etc etc etc after the long winter?? The heck with it... i am going to ride my Goldwing Sat instead... the work will wait. After the long long winter, i cannot sleep at night thinking about all the work that waits, and have done plenty so far this spring. Bunker

    One day at a time friend.
    I havenít heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    You can't really start right out on all of that yard work after a long winter, it's not healthy. You need to at least take a few trips on you motorcycle to get your "motor" skills back in shape!

    Overwhelmed is right. What makes it worse is my area is only seeing one day without rain every two weeks.

    I hear ya. I started a new consulting gig last Monday and was out billable on the fist day. I have not been a consultant in 12 years, been in corporate IT so long I forgot how to BE a consultant, instead I paid them.

    I thought I was having a nervous breakdown on Tuesday, turns out I was just sick and misread the symptoms (DOH!).

    I thought that those jobs belonged to the younger crowd.
    I had my gardens and shrubs mulched by a local firm and they will return tomorrow to paint/re-seal the decking.
    I'm going riding.

    I just had to put in a new sewer line, I dug it by hand and did it all myself to save money, haven't worked that hard in years. Have to fix interior trim, put down new flooring, and fix cracks in basement wall.
    Working extra shifts to help pay tuition for the Mrs, who is now enrolled in a graduate program for her Masters.
    Had to buy new lawn mower, cause the old one quit. As soon as I cut the grass with the new Cub Cadet, the damn weed eater broke.
    Yeah, I'm feeling it.
    My solution; putting the house up for sale today. Take the equity and pay off bills, purchase a used mobile home, and bank all my checks for the next 5 years. I'm done. I'll keep my land and that's it. Too much work and responsibility. Time to enjoy life.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.
