It's a common expression here in South Central Kentucky, when you've got more work than you can handle you're "covered up".
And they say that God invented time so that everything wouldn't happen at once.
And just a few weeks ago I was whining 'cause things were so slow! We even started doing repairs! I hate repairs. Now we have so many irons in the fire I feel guilty spending this time on the blog.
Be careful what you wish for. Heh heh heh
