I was so exhausted yesterday I couldn’t even post to this thread. The trouble with summer and a new house to fix up is when the weekend comes you plan all week the projects you want to get done and then the weekend comes and you have all the normal summer stuff to do. So you do both. Sunday started about 6:00 AM with working on kitchen trim and painting the entry mud room, then start the kitchen sink plumbing, but then there was the steam tractor show that you just can’t miss so change at noon and do the show till about 5:00. Get back to working on the house but being in the sun all day requires a nap in the lawn chair for 30 minutes. Wake up and finish the sink, dishwasher and fridge plumbing and go after the new lights and ceiling fan install. Get out of the house about 11:00 and look for some dinner at the all night place. Get up at 5:00 and go to the normal job and start planning what work you can get to that night if you have time.

The worst part is my girlfriend is a dairy farmer. When I work and bust it for 14 or 15 hours straight I never get to whine because she just put in a normal 16 hour day working twice as hard. The best part about a dairy farm is you never get a weekend off or a weekday.

So she gets an 8 hour vacation a day?

Yep they used to milk the cows 3 times a day 2PM, 10PM, 6AM. They only milk 150 cows and have another 150 that they only have to feed. So doing that improves production about 5% but didn’t let you get that 8 hour vacation each day. So they went back to twice a day 4AM, 4PM. That leaves you a lot more time in the middle to tend to the 500 acres of crops it takes to feed them. A pile of ground up corn about half a football field in size 14 foot deep is all they eat per year. I never measured how much comes out the other end but it’s a lot.

Bud, I hope you are a 30 something because if you are much older than that I feel really lazy. Just can't seem to run that hard anymore.
