The concrete guys showed up today with one of these bad boys. I really really hate to pay people to do things. After I busted up and rebuilt the side walk myself, I know that I am getting my moneys worth. I knew it was going to be a lot of concrete, but after they were done busting it up, it looked like more than I expected.
It was really hot this weekend and no rain, so I spent most of my time out in the yard getting things ready for the concrete guys. I hate my back yard, I am half embarrassed to post pictures of it. When you see the pictures, it may not seem like I did much, but keep in mind that it hasn’t rained here in two months, and it’s a dessert out there. The ground is rock hard. Digging a hole is a big deal. Luckily, Tom fixed my fan because I don’t think I would have been able to dig a hole deep enough for his carcass.
I’ve been busier than a tornado in a trailer park. I can’t do everything alone, so sometimes, I have to ask for help. I recently asked Tom to help me run some electrical wires up in my bedroom. The picture to the left, best describes what I had to deal with. There was a lot of yelling and name calling, at one point I seriously, seriously contemplated nailing the door to the attic shut and just leaving him up there.
After all the work I did this weekend, I think this picture best describes how tired I am . I may fall asleep in the middle of typing this. I am actually looking forward to going to work tomorrow so that I can get a little “rest”. Enough whining here are the pictures.
Except for the sidewalk and front steps, all of the work I have done to the house as been inside. But this weekend that has change.
