Getting It Done Again
Sunday, June 19, 2011
My son is working 4 days in a row and in the first 2 days he worked 20 hours so he is exhausted and his feet hurt.
Yesterday we got up early, went to the bank, and then to my MIL's house. They shut off the water when they promised they wouldn't. So we spent the day trying to get the yard cleaned up as the early part of the day it was cooler down there and the yard was a mess. We hauled off 10 contractor bags full of junk. The neighbor is letting us use a dumpster they pay rent on. We dug up that hideous clothes line and the neighbor was nice enough to haul it off for me. Stuffed the holes full of potting soil and dirt. Cleaned out that dog pen. Looked inside that storm shelter and it had 3-4 feet of water in it with bags of floating who-knows-what. Hauled off more cat poop and broken yard art. Cleaned up behind the shed which was stacked full of rusted trash. Took everything out of the sunroom and started trying to get the rust off the tile where my MIL had rusty metal cans on the floor. Took out the decayed mice. We worked 12 hours yesterday.
Last night the weather radio went off all night long. We had some limbs down but people in the county below us had quite a bit of damage.
Today we went back and I finished up the yard. We hauled off another bag full of broken yard art and planted some hen and checks my MIL had growing in pots in the empty beds in front of the house. We then filled holes in the wall in the sunroom, fixed the pet door, cleaned the wall, mopped the floors, and painted the window sills and molding. It looks great and is our first room completely done. We left earlier today and went to Burger King to get hubby something for Father's Day (other than work). LOL.
