Good and Tired

My husband loves an episode of the Andy Griffith Show where Opie works hard all day on something (I can't remember what) and at the end of the day Andy asks, "well, Opie, don't you feel good?" And Opie responds "yes, Pa.....good and tired."

Today was a perfect example of how one thing leads to another. I started the day switching out my winter and summer clothing.  By about 10am it was clear that I was also on a big purging streak.  And well before lunch I had emptied all of the dresser drawers and the closet, and was happily immersed in sorting, purging, and organizing. 

But of course I didn't stop there.  That would be too sane.  I continued on to purge the kitchen (breadmaker?  juicer? bye-bye!), some of our bookshelves, the dining room linens, my bed linens.......I only stopped because it was time to put everyone to bed.  And then when I stopped, I really stopped; that is, I came to a screeching and exhausted halt.  Reward; hot bath. 

So yeah, I feel good. Good and tired!

  1. Yes! That is the best kind of day ever! Mine is always followed the next day by being a complete couch potato, though--I can never quite summon that kind of energy twice in a row!
