Who's going to tackle Tuesday with me?

Jean in Newcastle

Recommended Posts

spent most of the day dodging showers of rain while trying to create the new massive strawberry garden. It is tricky with twins following me every step, tumbling over just planted plants and getting in the way of the wheelbarrow as I am pushing it But we are half way done! :coolgleamA:



Case manager visited the other week and said I am looking frazzled. They are going to fund  someone to clean for an hour or so  each week as I am spending such a huge amount of time either doing therapy with twins or taking them to specialists . :hurray:    I have put an add in the paper, which comes out tomorrow. Hope someone applies.

I would like to start by getting up early and doing some work before anyone else gets up.  To make up for not being very productive today.


But since its past 3am already, I don't know ... probably not!


I'll try to do the list tomorrow, I need to go to bed now.  :)

Got up late, so no early morning work.  ;)  Now I wish I could go back to bed, but people are here and will probably want to get into my room again.


Today is supposedly the final day of construction, for inspection tomorrow.  Though I don't know.  I've heard that before.  There still seems to be a lot to do.


Today's tentative list:

  • Kids up and off to the school bus.  [done]
  • Clean kitchen and bathroom.  [done]
  • Work.
  • Kids' work.
  • Mail some bills and checks.
  • Kids to high school soccer game?  Their team was invited to participate in the halftime show.
  • More kids' work?
  • Kids to bed.
  • Work.

I know this is going to be a shock, but ... there isn't going to be an inspection tomorrow (on the construction) after all.  :/


I have a long list of small things they have to fix / complete before they can be done.


I have to say that I am surprised by the level of workmanship on this job.  Maybe all these people are half blind or something.  They are nice people, so I hate to complain, but we're paying a lot and we expect the place to look nice.  Stain the woodwork evenly.  Use the same paint on the whole wall.  Extend the baseboards to the end of the wall.  Make sure the doors open and close properly.  The counter should be level, not a half inch lower on one side.  Ya know?


We went to the high school girls' soccer game.  The girls did get to go out on the field, before the game, not at halftime.  They hung with their team socially the rest of the time.  A brief window into the future I suppose.  Good stuff.
