LOOK, look, look at that side bar. We owe less on the house and I am hoping before the end of the of the month to owe under $16,000. It is getting there. But I am so impatient as this has been a very long journey.Needless to say I love looking at the progress. It helps me keep going.
Yesterday I had both of my bride dresses come in and one dress is done and the other will be done tomorrow. I had 5 dresses come in yesterday and more are coming in today. SO I have no excuse not to work. I just keep telling myself that every dress that comes in gets me one step closer to paying off this darn house.
The littles are here today so we are busy running and trying to keep the baby out of stuff. Like the fireplace..... We are going to take them out back to play in the yard after I get this post finished. I can do a little trimming and weeding while they play.
I have to take a meal into a family where someone just had knee surgery. I have a package of chicken thighs that I am going to cook up along with mashed potatoes and a salad from the garden. I will probably do some kind of cake for dessert.
Once I get the littles down for an afternoon nap I will get the dinner done. I also want to try and get a few dresses done today. I figured if I went in and did the cutting and the serging then I could go back do the hemming later. My goal is 4 dresses plus to finish up the bride dress.
Hub's actually was able to fix a long rotting part of our deck in the last two days. I am so proud of him. Even though many more boards could be replaced these will do for the season and then we can power wash and paint the darn thing. I just want you to know I did not nag, or help, or coerce. It is like a holy miracle.
I picked up a few more plants at the Home depot mark down section and I plan on planting those today. I want to put some plants in pots and put the pots in a section of the landscaping that has a hole. I had Hub's take out a dieing bush. The spot just needs color. I have told the girls to replace Hub's wheel barrow as it is 30 years old and rotting. I plan on spray painting it bright red and planting flowers in it. I will then place it in another section of the yard that needs color.
Well the littles are cranking to go outside so I had better go play Grandma.
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
