Isn't it AMAZING how busy we can be just keeping up with "stuff" around the house and yard? I often wonder how we got anything done around here when we were both working 50 hours a week too. Thanks for commenting on my post.

You probably didn't. That is what I have discovered. We got the basic maintenance done (fix the plumbing, electrical, paint and mow the lawy), but no time to do actual improvements and some maintenance simply didn't get done at all.
As I said, mundane. I don't mind doing these chores (for the most part), but I know a lot of people say they don't want to retire and have all these tasks to do (as you implied). To me, it's a sense of accomplishment.
