So. Very. Tired.

How is it that I used to stay up until 2am all the time in high school and college AND still have plenty of energy to spare the next day? That just proves my theory that it sucks getting old!

I have been staying up until 1 or 2 in the morning all week working on the bathroom or doing work stuff. Crazy right?! I am desperate to get our bathroom finished so that I can shower in my own house so I've been working my butt off trying to get it all completed. Jeremy has been going into work at 3am all week so he obviously has not been able to put in the time. On the bright side, I am really mastering the art of laying tile and grouting. Bob Villa watch out!! It will be finished over the weekend!!

The other project that has been keeping me up late at night is the Jacksonville Business Expo. (Note to self: Next time you have a brilliant idea and want the RR to participate in a community project KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!)

I signed AKMD up to participate in this Business Expo thinking it would be good PR and a great way to meet some other businesses in the community and maybe, just maybe, score some new business opportunities. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it went-major goodwill for us and some business opportunity leads. yay me! But, as usual leading up to the Expo was pure hell. I once again didn't have any volunteers to give me a hand and a huge account I've been working on landing decided to make their move in the midst of all this. Whew! So the expo was kind of thrown together at the last minute, but I do have to say we were the most popular booth there thanks to yours truly. Can you guess why? A TRAIN SET, that's why! Who doesn't love trains? So, I set up one of my train sets on an empty table and we had everyone in the room coming by.

And, check out the locomotive I made special for the event! The quality of the photo isn't very good but it's an exact working replica of our locomotives. Not too shabby huh? I bought a kit off of Ebay, put it all together and painted. I love it now, but at 1am I kind of hated it.

And now I am dragging some serious butt. I knew I was in trouble yesterday when I got home from work and was swollen from the tips of my toes to the tops of my knees. I couldn't believe that my feet were swollen, HELLO, I'm not pregnant. It's just not fair.
Cross your fingers that I don't fall asleep at work and enjoy your Memorial Day weekend!
