Need Yard Magic

So little energy and so much to do.  Our landscaping has come a long way since we moved into this new house 3 1/2 years ago, but it still isn't to the point that we can just sit and enjoy it.  (Does it ever get to that point?)  We decided to fill the yard with wood chips, shrubs and perennials thinking that there would be very little work when it was finished.  It still isn't finished and the work goes on.  We put cardboard under the wood chips to keep the weeds at bay.  Still have weeds.  Nobody told me they would grow in wood chips! 

The deer have pruned a few of our trees and shrubs.  Hubby had to put chicken wire around one of his apple trees to keep the deer from eating it.  We close all the gates to our back yard at night so they can't come in, but sometimes they come in during the day and look at us as if to ask, "What are you doing in my yard?"  A few days ago  hubby was looking back at something while he was walking and nearly ran into a buck. 

I'm tired just thinking about all this.  I think I'll go take a nap.  More later.
