Just Tired!

Good gosh I feel like a 18 wheeler ran over me this morning and then backed up and did it again and all I did was work three days at the Sheriffs Office. I did not play professional football in Dallas this weekend against my sister Kate who plays for the Minnesota Vixens. (Kate and sister Libbie adopted me as their sister) Good grief Kate you have to feel like me this morning. Let us know how the game went and are you girls allowed to come back to Texas anytime soon….lol…been trying my best to get Kate and Libbie to do a Blogazine post for me but so far they are acting like step sisters…hahahaha

I had so wanted to be off this past weekend and drive to Dallas to see her play but my Sgt felt like I needed to work more than have fun. Story of this ole grandma’s life. Who knows maybe I will win the lotto and fly in for one of her home games.

Today I am off from the Sheriffs office but not the ranch. I have so many chores out here to do that I honestly don’t have a clue which one to do first or where to start. So what do I do I start a blogging post. Every few days it rains here so the grass is growing faster than the hair on ole Harry Cheeks butt….remember him. Sorry should not bring up past gross post especially on a Monday morning. I also have to deal with the house in town that the renters left in a wreck. It’s a good thing I can’t afford to run away because today would be the day to do it.

I get an email from my friend Sharon who is in Mexico for 5 weeks vacationing and the poor thing is complaining about her apt is too small. Sharon if you are reading this honey  how many times have I told you DO YOU not know how lucky and blessed you are! So enjoy yourself and the little apt. I do love you honey but Geezzzz Louise you could be living my life. What am I going to do with her?

Now back to my problems. Over the three days at work they were pretty average. Praise God no one murdered anyone since we already are dealing with 6 murders already with five of them in our jail to watch for the next few years. Ms. Pearl only came out once when a drunk called her Baby. As you know from past experiences with Ms. Pearl the poor guy drunk or not will probably never ever use the word Baby again in a sentence the rest of his life. After I thought about it I started laughing and a bit ashamed of Ms. Pearl but once words are out of your mouth you can’t take them back. Right!

Then one of our trustees I was talking to him and I noticed that he had carved up his arm real bad with the name of his son. It is sad when someone like him gets so depressed that they choose to mutilate their own body. Can you believe he used a pencil to do this and he cut it deep too. The danger of him getting staff infection is what I was concerned about besides his mental issues as well... I talked to him for a long time about this and not being a therapist I was trying to choose my words carefully. I also kept Ms. Pearl at bay even though she was dying to jump out and have her say. I wanted to immediately put him up and take away his trustee status but I felt like being short handed over the weekend I needed him closer to me than farther away so I let him stay out. I did a report for the Sgt to get him MHMR services today and do something with him. Sad just Sad.

Then during visitation a woman comes to window dressed like well lets just say she did not have everything covered that needed covering so I would not let her visit. She got rather unraveled about it and it’s a good thing for her that Ms Pearl did not join her in the lobby because I have a feeling she would have been inside the bars instead of just visiting.

Anyway the day was finally over and I came home wanting to soak for hours in the tub but by the time I fed the animals around here and was taking my boots off the door bell rang. It was my baby brother Gary and his girlfriend Sherry. I always love seeing them but boy I was tired. I felt really bad because to tell you the truth I was not much company. I guess I was so boring that every once in a while they would give each other a little kiss or two and I was like alright already get a room but not here…..hahaha. No I was just tired but glad they stopped by even though it was 11 before I got to turn in. Maybe I was a tad jealous too because I was turning in with Tinkerbell the cat. Who knows!

So this morning I thought if I did a post maybe it would inspire me to get up off my lazy dooper as my grandbabies will not let me say butt and get my chores done. Wish me luck…not sure if I can force myself on the tractor or not but guess I have no choice.

Hope all of you have a wonderful week.

Love to all

I hope you feel better really soon! It is never any fun to be tired! I hope your Monday is going well!


Marydon Ford said...

G'day, sweetie ~ You are an absolute HOOT! I can see you in there with that 'chickie' & Mr. 'baby' ... oy!

Have a beautiful week.
TTFN ~Hugs in love, Marydon

Happy Monday Maggie.
Getting old isn't for babies, is it?
My dad told me this a long time ago and I understand what he meant now.
In my head I can do everything and it never hurts, and in reality, I am asleep on the couch by 9:30 and a bit exhausted after chasing a little grand girl all day.
By the end of the week, I am all done in.
Slept till 10 am on sunday. Just never do that.
Have a great week and go slow even though you have to go!!
I am really glad you posted today.

Sue said...

Wow, I'm exhausted just reading about all your experiences and exploits. No wonder you're tired!

Hope you've got lots of get up and go again soon.


Brynwood Needleworks said...

Well, my yellowhaired gal pal...You've had an interesting weekend to be sure! I'm so glad that Ms. Pearl behaved herself, and that you didn't cold-cock anyone!

I think y'all should get out your fanciest, Sunday-go-to-meetin' hat...the one with all the big, floppy flowers...and wear it while you ride around on the tractor today. You know, to get you in "the mood". Then, when you're all finished, pour yourself a glass of your favorite libation, draw a nice warm bubble bath (don't you have one outside yet?) and sit in your birthday suit til you feel like a new woman!

We're off to the airport to deliver my newlywed mum and her sweet husband for their flight back home. Our house will then be ours again, and I might just have to go skinny dipping to celebrate!

And don't can hatch LOTS of plots while you ride around on the old JD! ;-)

Julie Harward said...

You sound as exhausted as me, and I haven't done anything! I think you should treat yourself to a massage once in a while, I think it would help work too hard...get those two that have been following you around and put them to work! LOL Come say hi :D

My Grama's Soul said...

Good morning......thanks for stopping by. Glad my post was a positive one for you; but I must tell you friend, you stories ALWAYS make my day a little sunnier!!!



Auntie Cake said...

Hi Maggie,
Had to laugh at your post today! And I was coming over to tell you, you never taught your "friends" that I played with this weekend any manners. I also feel like I got run over by a truck this weekend, but then again, I always do after a game. They creamed us, they are a really good team, one of the best teams in the league, and they deserve to be, but they don't play nice.

So sorry you had a yucky weekend at work. It didn't sound any fun. On the bright side,, it is over!!!

Okay, I will make Lib and I think of something for your blogazine. We are just rather boring folks. We will put our little heads together and come up with something good for you. I don't want to be the evil step sister!!!

Have a great week,

Gerry said...

Gad, how do you keep up with yourself so many adventures for one gal.

I'm not certain whether to believe all this happens to you or if you've a vivid imagination.

Either way, you are a HOOT and have the knack for telling a tale.

I love reading every word of you life as you live it.

Hugs & ♥♥♥s,

Lisalulu said...

MAN you are one busy mama!~ guess thats what keeps you going!! I sure enjoy all your stories.

Linda said...

I uses a cartoon to tell how my weekend was! Guess we are all tired!

Diane at Crafty Passions said...

I am tired just reading your post !!
Take care

Debby said...

I'm sorry you are running on fumes today. Perhaps you should just do nothing today. Your job has to be exhausting. The "Bite me" was too funny.
Not having a super day either but not because of exhaustion.
Rest up my dear.

Andrea said...

Hope you gain a burst of energy, soon.
Blessings, andrea

Pat said...

Hey Lady...
I thought I had lots going on but you've got me beat. Hope the new week brings you better times and a bit of rest.

Maggie, I don't know how you do it. You are one tough lady. I can't even speak my mind when somebody is rude to me.....I've certainly got to get gutsy. Maybe now that I'm in menopause, I'll get tougher. I'm certainly getting hairier....and that's really ticking me off.

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

Hi Maggie!
Never, ever a dull moment with you, that's for sure!
Rest up and get to feeling better. :-)

Have a wonderful week!

Nezzy said...

Good God Woman...I have three words for you....

sjmcdowell said...

Ahhh Maggie my dear friend what can I say...?

Love you to heck Girlfriend,


Shelly said...

Maggie my dear, if it makes you feel any better, I sleep with a "Zoo!" Two big dogs and one cat.....The other one has her perch in the office/guest room,,,which is doing us all a favor as her breath is horrid!....nuff said!

I cannot imagine how you get through those days at work! Other than to say, son Andrew does Bail Bonds when he's not going to college and I get an earfull from him!

Okay, dear friend, if you don't WIN, I may just have to make you a CROWN anyway to wear or just keep to make you feel like a Queen,,,,,,but I'm having a giveaway which also includes a certificate from JOYWORKS,,,,so we could get you all "lathered up" in some French Soaps and lotions and a yummy candle or two.

If you've got the energy, stop over and enter my giveaway (from Friday's Post) and you could win a bit of "girly girl" frou frou! Which I think you may be able to use right about NOW!

But as said, I may just need to send you a "Maggie" crown soon, just cuz!

Hugs and love you to pieces! This TOO shall Pass!


Meghan said...

Oh wow Maggie. You have quite the job! You are a saint, lady!

Libbie said...

So I see Kate played the "sweet" card . She won't come up with anything! That girl! Anyway I was smiling big that first part! I guess I will have to be the wicked step sister because I got nothing...but I don't mind being the bad is kinda fun :) That is about as rebeliious as i get :)

Oh hon! What a long weekend! When are you moving up here so we can have our standing weekly Starbucks date & you can kick you feet up & we can laugh our heads off!

I gotta run but I REALLY hope you get a chance to relax soon! Put some cold cucumbers on your eyes :) I don't have any idea where that advice came from but it sounds refreshing :)

Delena said...

I Love your stories. You write with so much detail and passion. I too get tired doing all this physical stuff at our place. I sometimes think I am getting too old for this ,,,, but at the end of the day to relax and crochet is just heaven!

joanne said...

how can anyone complain after they read about your weekend~ and stop using my picture at the beginning of your posts (hahahahahaha)

take care and stop by if you can...I'm having a give-away~~spread the word~

Vicki said...

Had to stop by and say hi before I hit the sack..Hope you got to do the same. Us old-er gals should have the cush jobs that pay enough to support us good...ya, in my dreams.

Love that Ms Pearl got to come out at least once. I think she should be allowed to visit more often (o:

ok, past bedtime so I'll say good night and try to get back on a somewhat normal blog routine again soon.

Love ya my friend...

Kissed by an Angel said...

Hi Maggie, hope you are feeling better today!!! You have an eventful life!!! You are marvellous to be able to keep up with it!!!!

Arkansas Patti said...

Good grief lady, your have a right to be tired but you can never complain about being bored. Put on your ME badge and get some rest so you can deal with the crazies.

NitWit1 said...

Life is never dull in Texas even if you are tired. I am not mentally equipped to handle law enforcement. I would be "Miz Pearl" all the time.

Sniffles and Smiles said...

Hope you got the mowing done...I know you've been wanting to get it done for some time but have had your share of interruptors :-) What a busy and interesting time you've had! Never a dull moment for you, is there? Hope that the rest of your week is a little more relaxing! Love, Janine XO

Hey Maggie Girl,
I'm sorry I haven't been around to see you lately. You know how it is, life gets sooo hectic and I haven't been too good at going to visit all my friends in blogland like I should. You know how tired you've been lately. I like what you say about the rut and the grave...I'd rather be in a rut, though!! I actually feel like I am in one right now( a rut that is), so I'm working my way UP and out of the ground. You know what I'm talking about. It's a shame you couldn't get to go to Kate's game. It's funny too, because I was thinking about you this weekend and wondering if you went to Kate's game. I read she was going to Dallas and I remembered you saying you were going to try to go. Too bad you had to work and take care of business at home. Having a bad renter is a nightmare you don't need to deal with, either. I know all about that too. We have someone in a beach rental property who should be vacating it this weekend after spending the whole winter in it destroying it:( So we will have to go and clean and repair things before the weekly summer rentals start soon. It's a headache.
Well, my dear you stay out of trouble, get some sleep and tell Ms. Pearl to behave herself!
Try to have a good rest of the week:)
