It’s a great feeling when someone doubts you, and you prove them wrong exponentially.
We had a project of doing our concrete patio slab. And originally my husband was going to do it himself, but someone said we should have a team of five guys helping…so of course five guys turned into me with the baby on my chest.
And you must know I have never done concrete work before. He woke me up 20min before the truck was showing up saying he is going to need some help.
But the truck driver also was surprised that my husband didn’t have extra help, and was more surprised when I was there to help with a baby strapped to my front. The man also said that it would be an all day project.
However, much to his dismay, we got it all spread out in one hour. The truck got there at 9:30 and left at 11:00. Haha ‘all day project’ nope.
So I guess my husband, me and the baby is enough to do 450 sq feet. I felt super spiffy.
So now that man can go back to his business astonished; and if he ever sees workers slacking off he can tell them about the time he saw a husband and his wife, with the baby, do a patio slab themselves.
The driveway is the next project, and that will be easier. 😎
It being only me, the two puppies, and my hubby when he is not working; makes days here go by really quickly. It’s amazing how time flies in a small town where everything is super slow. A view from where I was walking one of the puppies the other day…
We’ve been having a lot of thunderstorms lately. We’ll be watching the television and an alert will interrupt the show saying beware severe thunderstorms in these areas. Last night it said there was a possibility of ping-pong sized hail for about two hours. We never experienced it though. Here’s a photo from the front of our house looking out at the rain. It is pretty amazing…
My job has been to make sure the puppies get exercise. Make sure they’re not fighting. Also I’m supposed to clean up the front and backyard, but the grass is not really growing in the places we put down seeds. Slowly everything will come together.
The fence is telling you where the nice grass is. Yeah, the green stuff is the neighbors yard.
We do have an apple tree in the backyard. It’s a crab apple tree, and it’s doing pretty well. I trimmed it a little bit ago and it seems to be thriving a little bit more. I tasted an apple a while ago it was not ripe, it tasted terrible. I did find out though that the puppies love to naw on them, just chew on them, but sometimes eat them.
All the fluff around the base of the tree comes from toys. You would be surprised that I’ve picked up fluff several times in the last two days. And sadly to say my slipper was also a victim. I will say this…I am happy I had the bright idea to only buy slippers worth $1.
So yeah my days are pretty much slow. I’m trying to do more things, but it just takes so much energy and I seem to not have enough energy. My puppies keep me on my toes all day. But thankfully my husband only has two more days this week and then he will have seven days off. His family is coming to visit, so that will be something new.
I just hope it’s not too long until I get to travel home and see my family. I miss them.
I am sorry to my followers…I will finish the story tomorrow, but I have had a long strenuous weekend. One fourteen hour day and one twelve hour day to be exact. Not relaxing hours, but doing hard work…
This is our trailer to take my hubby from point A to point B in a more affordable way…but it needed some love.
My husbands mind is amazing, because he has been telling me all the designs and what he was going to do, and I thought I understood but I didn’t. It was much more amazing than I had thought of…😎
My job was to grind down the rust on the cross beams that were broken. I started with this air grinder one for a while but I advanced up to a heftier one after a while.
So as much as I want to continue the story I am pooped and if I tried to write today the story would end just like how I am feeling. So I’m going to give myself a day to recoup and I’ll finally finish the story tomorrow. Again I am sorry, but I’m exhausted.
What do you think of my Saturday attire…😜 I was pretty much wearing this throughout both days…
Attempting to begin painting again. Have to find time around my full time job and my hubby ❤️ I’ll weasel it into my weekends somehow. Just the first three steps, but no where near being done…
Trickling through my hair,
Smearing on my face,
Cascading down my neck,
Pouring down my spine,
Dragging my pants off my hips,
Swimming down my legs,
Pooling in my boot,
Who needs a pool?
I’ve got the heat.
