Over Doing It
Over doing it becomes easier as you get older. When I was young, I’d know I over did it when the next morning I woke with achy muscles. While that happens still, it’s more likely that by the end of the day I am just completely exhausted.
The first task of the day was to mow the lawn. It’s not an easy or quick chore. It occupies the better half of a day. Add weed whacking to the list and you’re talking about a LOT of work.
I probably should have called it a day after mowing the lawn, but Elizabethe suggested we go to Real Deals and get more pecan turtles. At $1 a box ($6.50 a box on Amazon) they are a steal.
We drove to Real Deals in Lyons and purchased 36 boxes. We then drove to Real Deals in Seneca Falls to see what else they might have that’s a steal.
Going to Sauder’s put me over the top. When we got home I was so beat. Talk about over doing it. I really should have called it quit after the first Real Deals.
International Print Competition entries opens in just a few days. Once I get my entries submitted that will be a load off my mind and I can concentrate on other, less pressing projects.
I need 3 painting merits, and only 2 photographic merits to earn two master’s degrees – one in art and one in painting. It would have been way easier and faster to enroll in a traditional college and get a Master of Fine Arts degree. I might have been cheaper too… but not as fun.
Wait! Why am I calling this fun? I’ve put myself through much torchure preparing for print competitions each year.
