Let's see - in the past week we got so much rain, we had flooding in areas. Some people and a house got hit by lightening. It's been a wild week weather wise. There was so much water, my plant boxes on the second story deck were so full of water, it uprooted my petunias. Shit!! I have to go buy some more topsoil and try to save those guys (I think that may be a lost cause). I have no clue how starting the deck tomorrow is going to go. Mushy is my expectation. Oh well - we'll do what we can. Good thing Jarrett has a Master's Degree in civil engineering. My enginerd will come in handy. If he knows how to pour concrete under water, he can set some pilings.
I would say I've been frantically cleaning my house (that'd be a lie) because my parents will be here this afternoon sometime. I'm totally disorganized and grocery-less. I need a smack from someone to get me motivated please. Instead, last night me and my bud went for pedicures. HEY pretty feet = productively faster feet right? Right? Oh fine, I was being frivolous. But my toes are pretty! I don't have too much to do actually. I just have to wash floors and clean some bathrooms. Always with the bathrooms huh? I'm thinking of buiding some of them into the walls. If I can't access them, then I don't have to clean them right?
In other news, my neighbors had a sump pump put in their backyard because apparently we have a natural underground stream running down between us. They can't pour a patio without the sump. So they came, pulled off part of the fence, and drove a bobcat and a little backhoe through her and mine front yard. It looks HORRIBLE!! 1 foot deep tire trenches, muddy and ugly! I'm a little pissed off. Plus it gets worse, she's having more work done - it'll be about 5 weeks until it's fixed. So nice I get to look at it. She's having it fixed but the point being - it's just awful looking. Their backyard looks like a bomb went off. But their sump pump is running nicely!
Other than that, I'm just going to run like a chicken with it's head cut off for the next 7 hours. I don't know why but I can have a disorganized house in front of my mom. I feel like a teenager under inspection of my bedroom and if I fail, I don't get to go to the school dance or something. Oh and before I forget, if any of you are on www.facebook.com, let me know - I'll add you on. I'd say it's an addiction but it's not. I just like catching up with "some" people. Some people found me I wish that never found me (from high school). Note to them: if I didn't like you in high school I probably have no interest in you now!
Anyways, enough of my rambling. Hope everyone has a good week-end!
