Just a short update. We had a pretty busy weekend:
Saturday: Unloaded and stacked a truckload of firewood. Attempted to bring a truck load of old “stuff” to the transfer station for my father-in-law (who lives ~35 minutes away), only to find they close 2 hours earlier after July 1st (how dumb is that?). Instead, we went to Lowes to get some drywall since Dad’s been wanting to do that for a while as well and needed the truck to get it back to his house. Then drove to friends’ house to get a load of firewood that they’ve wanted to get rid of for a year. Unloaded that when I got back home. Then after dinner, Sharon’s parents babysat for us so we could go out for a drink and a much-needed break from our wonderful little boy. We gave up our booth for a group of six, so they bought us a round of drinks. That was kinda cool.
Sunday: Started out with 11:00 am Mass. Then cut the lawn. Split some firewood (barely denting only one of the monstrous unsplit piles). Got a little more work done installing our son’s playscape - had to saw through some tree roots. (Thank God for reciprocating saws - the best invention of the century.) Didn’t get to stack the split firewood or rake up the mowed grass. But, we did go get ice cream cones for dessert.
