My dream is to be able to afford to have someone else do all the horrible maintenance chores, I have to nag Hub's into doing a poor job of. Right now it is the deck. I swear everything we do is labor intensive. Scraping, sanding, spraying, moving, cleaning, painting. It just never ends.
Then again if I had the money I would probably be too cheap to spend it. I can be funny that way.
Right now we have the deck cleared and scraped and pressure sprayed. Hubs will replace all the bad boards and then we will scrap and sweep again and I will paint. I am happy we have not cleaned the pond yet as paint chips flew all over that are and will have to be cleaned up.
It took us most of the afternoon to get a sprinkler head reset. Actually I had to do this as Hub's could never have figured it out. You see you have to put on bi-focals to read the instructions and Hub's does wear his. You can avoid work when you can't see. But I made him get down and screw the *&^% head in every time I reset it. I too can be a nasty wench.
Mom is up to her old self biting Lil sis's head off and being rude, when we happen to disagree with her. She is getting very close to having a guardianship placed on her.
I have a dancer coming over to fit a costume today. All pieces of the bodice and lining are cut and ready. I will get that together and then once that is a perfect fit I will attach the neck and arms. I think I will do a muslin of the skirt as I want it to fold a certain way.
Yesterday Hub's and I went to Wal-Mart and purchased, chicken, cat, dog food. I also purchased some personal things like kleenex and a can of spray paint, another scraper. We get home and hub's is out of shave cream (yes even my storage hoard) and I am out of sensitive items. I mean really anyone heard of a thing called a list? You know that thing you write and leave on the counter at home when you go to the store. At least when you make a list it kind of sticks with you.
Well I hope to make great headway on a costume and I hope Hub's gets all the boards replaced. I am making pork chops, sweet potatoes, salad, and fresh garden veggies for dinner. Hubs want me and mom to make cookies that he can take up to his office and see the guys. We will see.
I am off.
Have a great and productive day!
