It's been a while since I've posted....A long while. my wife
and I have been very busy lately. For those of you who know us you know that's not that unusual but we are actually MORE busy than usual. As most of you know, we just bought a house, our first house. We had for a while spent every spare moment working on it. It was in good shape when we bought it, we could have just moved in. But we decided to tear all the trim out (my idea, that's my specialty) and repaint everything. The paint was kind of important. The previous owners had painted the living room dark blue, the dining room pink, the utility room yellow and every other room white. Sounds crazy? Keep reading. One of the bedrooms upstairs (which we have done nothing with) was painted gray and while the paint was wet....are you ready for this?....they threw glitter on the walls. That room will require some special attention :) The main floor is all trimmed and painted, except for the dining room. I'm still working on it. I am also in the process of laying tile in the 1/2 bath. Never a dull moment around here.
Oh wait..you thought that was all we had going on? Ha! The company that i work for has 7 houses in the construction phase. One we just finished, 2 that are ready for trim and tile (we do that ourselves) and the rest will follow right behind.
Still not all....My wife and I have been busy in our "off work hours" doing side jobs. We have 7 yards that we mow regularly. We installed 5 cubic yards of lava rock at one of them and have another waiting on mulch. We also do handyman type work. Yesterday, we rplaced 2 exterior doors and installed 3 storm doors for a customer.
You thought I was finished? It's hay season. The past few days, me, my wife, her dad, and her cousin put up 300 to 400 square bales.
And last but not least, we still take care of our 35 calves.
There, I think that's all. We finally got the internet. We had to get DSL. We're used to cable but it doesn't run out this far. Actually, it runs to the house across the road. Our neighbor said the cable wanted him to pay $8,000 to run cable across the road and it would probably cost more to get it to our house because we live on 18 acres and about 15 of them are between us and the road. Oh well, I'm happy with DSl for now.
I'm done rambling, hope everyone is doing well!
