Too Tired.....





All you get tonight is Maxine! (At the moment, I look a lot like the woman in the bottom cartoon!!)

I worked 9 hrs. and 40 minutes today; we finished the Mansion and went back to the shop to start the weekend events. Maybe I can post the rest of the photos of the Mansion decor tomorrow. But tonight? It's a hot bath and early to bed. It all starts again tomorrow at 8am.
P.S. If you live in the area and take the Raleigh News and Observer, you'll see a guest column I have in the North Raleigh section today. It is one of my former blog posts, which I sent in response to a request for submissions. Enjoy!

girl, you do more than I do when you are tired. I would not even open my computer. The trees are very pretty. My, you are very talented.

Jean said...

After all this decorating, is it difficult to get your own done?

Awareness said...

Hope you're enjoying the creativity even though you're putting in the long hours. The photos are gorgeous.....would love to see the Mansion when it's all done.

pleasant dreams...... and have fun tomorrow.

Goodnight, Judy. Enjoy that bath and get some rest!

Beverly said...

Sleep well. We can wait for photos.

The first comic was hilarious. :-)

Hopefully you sipped a nice glass of wine with that bath.

Seamus said...

I sure hope you get some rest - sounds as though you need it!

Sara said...

Hello, Judy, Michele sent me to say that I hope you had a restful night's sleep...and that you especially enjoyed that bath!

I sorta echo what Jean said. I know, from being in a job where I must lean heavily on my creativity, I tend to flail helplessly when I have to be creative for myself.

It's sort of like drawing water from a well all day to keep the horses happy, but then, when you're ready to sit down for that cool drink of water for yourself, the well is dry until the next morning, when the horses are thirsty again!

Or maybe it's not.

I love Maxine so no need to apologize:) Especially like how you pointed out which one you were at the moment...good visual:)

Just when I was starting to think you were the Bionic Woman! It is a relief to know you are human. I could not keep up with you for even thirty minutes!

I'll have to see if I can find a News and Observer.

Holy carp that stuff is amazing in the last post. Just popping in from libraryland to say Hi and congrats on the article! Hope they pick you up as a regular columnist!

utenzi said...

Congratulations on the publishing credit, Judy. I'll have to track down the column--or even pick up a copy of the paper.

tiff said...

Kenju, are you famous now? I will see if I can get the paper, or the article. Well done!!

Bob-kat said...

LOL! I look a lot like that last pic too atm. Just put a cat where the dog is!

I hope you get overtime. Too many hours....

Tabor said...

You are a smart old gal. You know how to pace yourself!

BreadBox said...

Get some good rest, Judy, if you can!
I understand the feeling, though --- I get to spend tomorrow at work from about 9:30 to 6:30 (I basically have to be there from 10 - 6, and it will take half an hour at each end to get odds and ends set up and put away...)

I love the photos of the pieces in the next post!

Michele sent me,
N.

Thanks for your visit Judy, and your comment on my WORLD AIDS DAY Post....What you say is so true. I too, pray that they find a cure, and very very soon.

You work so very hard Judy...I know it is gratifying, but...it is also long lomg hours and then another day of this tomorrow...(Well, it already was....)
Do take good care, my dear!

Claude said...

Wow! It really looks like a very busy time for you. Don't overdo it!
I never tire of Maxine. Thanks

Maxine and other cartoons are always good fill ins for when you've worked yourself to a frazzle.
I'd say after nearly working a 10-hour day, you deserve that hot bath and a good night's sleep.
