A little overwhelmed by all the tasks that need to happen. Getting reenacting stuff squared away yesterday took pretty much all day. I also discovered that it is a lot harder to climb aboard a military saddle than it used to be. I need to get in shape. I think we are doing better in that regard, but it’s slow going. I also still need to make cartridges. However, I am working fairly steady if not 5 days a week. Once the reenactment is over things will start settling down again.
This weekend is my last full up drill. There is one more in December, but it will be half a day and then the Dining Out. I do need to get in as much work as possible in for the Army while I still can.
Every walk I take and every time we walk out the front door, I see things that need to happen on the ranch. I’m here and that’s a start, but how great it would be to not be enslaved to the need for cash for insurance, groceries, and utilities.
