What a Great Weekend!

Hey Everyone!

We have made it back to Monday. I did not want to get out of bed this morning. The morning temperature is perfect for sleeping all day. I made it to work and have been busy all day! I haven’t sat down until lunch. I’m kind of exhausted. :/

This weekend was fun! Saturday my sister in-law came in to town to hand out with her sister, and it was my mother’s 62nd birthday! There were 9 adults and 3 kids at dinner, thats quite a bit. Everett was dancing to the juke box the whole time we were there.

1

After that we headed to my parents house and had brownies and ice cream.

3

Sunday morning we got up and had some breakfast and hung out in the living room, before my wife’s sister left.

2

My wife wanted to edit some pictures, since we took some family ones the night before. Everett had other plans.

4

We decided that it was a beautiful day and that we were going for a bike ride. Here was Everett’s riding outfit!

We went down to the local bike and hike trail and rode most of it and back to the house. I’m guessing that it was about a 4 to 5 mile ride. It was perfect weather for it.

Later that evening we accompanied my wife while she took some senior pictures for a girl that came from over an hour away. I took a couple behind the scenes shot for her.

Everett and I were playing with the rocks and in the grass while she was busy. Here is looks super cute trying to come down the hill.

He had a less than graceful way of getting down said hill…as you can see.

Annnnnd that was my weekend! I hope you had a great one as well. I’ll see you back again tomorrow! 😀 😀

Birthday Girl! (&Some Work Stuff)

Hey Everyone!

It was one of those days again, yesterday. It was a fairly calm day until just before lunch.

My co-worker called me up and needed me to bring him a tool. He was in our other shop location, and was sick of driving back and forth. He offered to buy me lunch, so of course I was in! 😀 That is why I wasn’t able to post yesterday. I was helping him gt the WiFi up and running at our other location. It took about an hour, then we stopped off and grabbed a sub from the local gas station that makes them pretty well. I picked up a weird taco sub, with Doritos, and your general taco stuff. It was really good! That busy momentum from before carried all the way through the afternoon.

If we go back a bit further, it was my wife’s birthday yesterday! I got up ad made her a breakfast sandwich, with some strawberries, and an iced coffee. I was able to fix Everett some breakfast too, taking some of the load off of her. She and Everett have been getting up later since she starts work later now, so she has been getting stuck making her own breakfast most days.

I ordered her a camera bag that she has wanted for some time. It was on back order for ever and still won’t ship out until the 31st but it is worth the wait. I let her know she had that coming and now she is super excited and can’t wait to receive it.

If you would like to take a look around that small shop click the link: Here!

After work let out, and my wife finished up working as well we got ready to go out for dinner. I let her pick where she wanted to go and she decided on the local Taco Hut! They have some of the best ‘south of the border’ food around us. My wife got some Fajitas, I got the steak tacos, and we split a nacho buffet! 😀

31.jpg

Everett picked off of our plates. He really seemed to like the beans more than anything, but also had rice and chips as you can see from his chin haha. 😀 😀 That rounded out our day and we just spent the night watching New Girl re-runs and lounging.

Today, so far is a terrible day for the terminals in our shop. I came in to three of them not working correctly and have only been able to get 1 back online. I took a break from them to write this because they are driving me nuts.

These are the two models that have been failing hard lately. They are both about 20+ years old and need to be thrown out, but until we upgrade the whole thing they need to work. If you don’t already know 20 year old technology is not something you want incorporated in your modern business haha. 😀

that is all for me today! I hope you have a great hum day and I’ll be back again tomorrow! (as long as nothing drags me away again) 😀 😀

Monday Funday!

Hey Everyone!

We had a pretty good weekend, I hope you did as well.

Friday our little family went to dinner at Red Lobster. It was nice to go out to eat for once and spend some time out and about.

Saturday I had that softball tournament. Our first game was at 9am. We didn’t do as well as we had hoped but still managed to be 4th in the league and get 3 games in the tournament. Now follow me here, We beat this team by the ten run rule, we then played the best team and lost by one. The third game knocked us out, via a team we have beaten before. The weird thing is that the team we beat by ten went on to knock out the best team and take second place in the whole tournament! We were stunned! We easily beat them by ten, how in the world did they beat those other teams? I understand it happens and I’m glad for them playing that hard, but it is just weird lol 😀

My wife was able to attend the first and most of the second game, until she had to go get ready to shoot a wedding. Everett and my mom stayed at the fields.

1

Saturday while my wife was away, and after the tourny, Everett and I went to my parent’s house. They were cleaning out their garage attic, and wanted some help getting things out. Everett found my first grade Halloween costume (Red Power Ranger), and spent some time smacking my mom’s dog lol 😀 He is still learning how to be nice.

3

Sunday we visit with my wife’s father. He was sent to the hospital, to get checked out. He has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, I believe, and was having some weird things happening. They found him to be dehydrated mostly. We saw him there for a couple hours.

4

Afterwards we hit up the Olive Garden, and Barnes and Noble. It was a dreary, overcast day with some rain sprinkled in. When we got home we decided it was time to just watch a movie. My wife has been wanting to re-watch the Lord of the Rings movies, so we started with the 3 hours Fellowship! 😀

Here we are Monday afternoon, I have been working hard to get these darn terminals under wraps. I have a few orders placed and am waiting their arrival. Oh, other big news. My boss is retiring this April! That is good news to me. I will be bidding on his job, more than likely won’t get it. Based on who we all think might get it, I may be able to move up and take his job. I’m hoping to be the new Network Coordinator by May. I’m not sure if it will affect the blog or not. One day I may get too busy to run this thing, who knows!

That is all for me today! I hope you are all having a great Monday, and I’ll see you tomorrow! 😀 😀

Great Surprise & Happy Birthday To Me!

Hey Everyone!

I was sitting at work Friday trying to figure out if I wanted to even try to cut the grass in the heat after work. When out of no where I receive a text from my brother. About four weeks early, my new niece Bridget Jo was coming into this world! We all now assume that the due date was a bit off as she is of a normal height and weight. She was 6lb 13.3oz and was 18.5in long. She was born at 2pm on the dot, Friday the 13th! My plans to cut the grass took a back seat, to visiting them in the hospital.

54132

Everything went well from what we know and we look forward to watching her grow, like her sister!

I must admit I have more pictures for this post, from this weekend. Do you think for a second that I could transfer them from my phone to my PC when I needed them? NOPE, me either! haha If they come though I’ll post them. As I was typing this those first set of pictures came through, but none of the other ones. Darn computers! 😀

So as you can tel our Friday was exciting! Saturday was busy. We headed out to a local park near my wife’s family, for her family reunion. Her uncles were back in town and we wanted to see everyone. Everett had a great time on the playground. Afterwards we stopped in to see her dad, and his family. We don’t make it out to see them as long as we want to so I think we are trying to plan a weekend just for them in the near future. Once that was said and done, we headed to yet another party. My cousins co-ed bridal shower. It was also at a nice park, with games and volleyball. They had a silent little aution that was put together by the wedding party, as well as a somewhat catered bbq for dinner. It was pretty freakin delicious! 😀

Sunday, my brother and I woke up and had a double header in our slow pitch softball league. If you can remember back a bit, I have been telling them that I’m the reason we have been winning, since the only two weekends we have lost were the two I missed being in Colorado. I’m glad to say that I will be saying that heading into the end of season tournament in two weeks, because we won them both again. This year out of 17 teams we are 4th with a record of 12 and 4 I believe. We were 2 in 4 after the 3rd week, but have won the last 5 weekends in a row! We will be seeded in the ‘A’ league for the tournament and hope to do as well as we can. If it stays as hot as its been I’m ok with only playing a few games haha. After our games we stopped at my brother’s house to have a nice family lunch for my birthday.

That brings us to today, by actual birthday! Woo and Nooo, all at once. I am the big 30 this year. It is bitter sweet. I think this is about the age where as a younger boy I thought that was the age of old people haha. Something about it makes it a bit sad. The rest of me is fine with it. I know I have a somewhat older than myself audience, and by no means am I trying to say that I am ‘old’, but I think this is a milestone year for most where they feel a little more divided from the younger generations. Just a day ago I could play ball with a 19 year old and it seemed pretty normal, all of a sudden its a teen and a 30 year old man haha. I’m not really too bothered by it. 😀 My wife and son will go have a nice dinner tonight to celebrate. I didn’t really want a party of any kind so we are keeping it quiet tonight. Just the fact that our family is growing and I got to see everyone is A OK with me! 😀

P.S. Totally unrelated, I put in the last damn piece to that crazy UPS project this morning. I have had to wait and wait and wait to do this thing and I did it! Everything is looking good and I’m going to wash my hands of it all haha.

That is all for me today! I hope you have a great day today, because it is my birthday! 😀 I’ll be back again tomorrow, and I hope to see you all then! 😀 😀

Mother’s Day Weekend!

Hey Everyone!

Soo Happy, belated, Mother’s Day to all of you moms out there!

We had a rainy weekend, but we made the best out of it. Everett was waking up 5:30am so a bit earlier than normal and throwing us off a bit. Saturday morning was lazy, we watched some TV and what not, nothing crazy.

Later we drove a bit out of the way and went to a place with a few big green houses. We picked up a couple of hanging basket ferns for my wife and I grabbed a nice hanging flower basket for my mom. Of course it was raining but it was all ok.

We still had a few minutes before our reservation for dinner so we stopped at a TJ Maxx and Michael’s, where my wife picked up a some stuff for her mom and a few things for a project she wanted to do.

When the time came we headed over to the Fuji Steak House.

6

It is a Hibachi style restaurant. So we are big fans haha.

1

This was Everett’s first time at a place like this. He was having a good time.

2

He wouldn’t let go of that rubber from for anything though haha. The first time he lit the grill on fire he didn’t know what to thing. He was mesmerized by the guy cooking the food and all his tricks with the utensils.

3

I picked up a fruity girly drink while I was there too, but it was delicious haha.

4

5

Once we came home we just spent some time together and watch a movie or two. We also got word that our normally scheduled softball games were canceled due to the weather, so we decided to have breakfast Sunday. This was with my whole family. we normally can only do dinner because we have games during the day. So Sunday morning came and I had hung up her hanging baskets.

7

Around 8:30am we went to a local spot for a nice breakfast. My brothers and their families were there too. In total we had 8 people and 2 kids.

Afterwards we took some pictures outside of the restaurant.

9

The only person not in the photos was my dad, because he was the one taking the pictures haha. We then gave my mom her flowers.

10

It is a big pretty basket so it filled that trunk! After we headed to Lowes to get the rest of the stuff for my wife’s project. I spent the day at home, watching movies, hanging pictures in the hall and other little things. I made spaghetti for her for dinner to end the evening.

Overall it was a great weekend, despite the rain. I hope you all had a great weekend as well! I’ll be back tomorrow, and hope to see you then! 😀 😀

How Is Your Thursday?

Hey Everyone!

My Thursday is moving along at a very average pace. Not sure how I feel about that. :/

Last night was a stated Masonic meeting night for me. That always involves wearing a suit and tie, and being gone most of the evening. My wife isn’t super fond of that, but generally it is only one night a month. Last night warm, which makes for an uncomfortable meeting. We had a nice dinner of spaghetti and meatballs with a nice salad bar. For desert we had ice cream and cupcakes. One of our members is the Sheriff and he had a presentation about drugs in our area and how we got to this point. It was pretty interesting. I think it is about time for him to retire though. His views and knowledge on certain things are dated, and some of the things that hang him up, are things that people my age know as common knowledge. I think it would be best to get some one in that position that is with the times a bit more. For the sake of productivity only. I believe that this guy has done a fine job for years in our area. Overall it was a great night for fellowship.

It is rainy and supposed to storm here within the next couple hours, so nothing will be accomplished tonight haha. My wife and I are working on things to gift each other for our upcoming anniversary and mother/father’s day. We know that a physical gift isn’t necessary, but we like taking the time to find something that each of us needs. Most of the time it is something that the other person would have just gotten themselves so we aren’t really out there with our choices. I have been putting together a simple list of things I could use, like a table saw or plunge router for out in the garage. Looking another way I also suggested a couple different types of Ukuleles I’ve had my eye on. Like I’ve said in another post, our May is packed with stuff, anniversaries, holidays, birthdays, and a vacation. that will just result in more pictures for my posts! haha

I have a bit more work to do to finish painting the fence. I would like to have it finished before Everett’s party. It will be a challenge because I have softball starting up this weekend, and I have to fight with the weather and paint sprayer to get it done. My goal is to have it done and be able to power wash the deck before people come over. Who knows! Once that project is complete I would like to make a scrap wood container on wheels. I want to model it from April Wilkerson’s ‘Lumber Rack’ which can be found: Here! I really love her videos, and she makes things people would actually want haha.

Anyway! that is all for me today. Not much going on. I’ll be back again tomorrow for what is hopefully a Friday morning “Coffee Talk” Fingers crossed! 😀 😀

Christmas #1!

Hey Everyone!

Welcome back on this fine Monday. Lets see, I’ll fill you in on this weekend in this post. Friday was very normal and not much was going on. Saturday we woke up and my wife wanted to get some last minute Christmas shopping done. We headed about a half an hour away and hit up the T.J. Maxx. We brought Everett, like we normally do, and he was pretty fussy the whole time.  I ended up carrying him so that my wife could focus on getting what she came for. He is getting heavy enough now that he really hurts your back. We were also having a guy come buy our pellet stove finally! He was supposed to come at 3-3:30 Saturday and he called me while we were still out shopping, saying he was at our house! We were about 25 minutes away and definitely not home. I was able to tell him that I would get a hold of my dad and/or brother to meet him. By the time I got home he was gone and my dad handed me the money. That was the easiest thing I had to do all weekend haha.  So here is your typical ‘money shot’ after the sale haha.

20171216_160023

You may remember me talking about a game called Ingress. It is a mobile augmented reality game. If you don’t play it, you should. You should also be sure to join the blue team (Resistance). 😉 Anyway, every so often a group of us get together, hangout, and most times, play the game in a group. We also stop and have lunch or dinner.  We met up this summer and played for a while and had some awesome pizza. It being a terrible winter night, we all just met up for some food at a bar and caught up with each other on Saturday. We had the typical 7 people there, even though we were missing a few others due to sickness and car trouble. I’m sure they will see us at the next one. If you are thinking about trying it out just know that it is a huge game, played worldwide, and addicting as all get out. You can hook up with local players all over and join groups on things like Facebook, Google Hangouts, and Zello. Dinner was actually really dang good. I built my own blue cheese burger, while others got home made prime rib, and pizza. All of which got great reviews.

Sunday my wife’s dad and family came into town to celebrate Christmas with us. We are trying to start the trend of not really traveling on Christmas since we always travel to see them every.single.time. This year is working well so far, they came this weekend. Next weekend will be the rest of her family and possibly mine. We are probably going to my parents late Christmas day just because my brothers and I went in on gifts for my parents and it wouldn’t make since to not all be there. Back to yesterday though. They brought a nice spaghetti casserole, and we made salad and bread sticks. Nothing fancy but here is our little table spread.

20171217_153505

Afterwards the boys played a bit and we opened gifts that we got for each other. Here is my brother in-law Remi playing with his dump truck.

20171217_160610

Next we have Everett and his Grandpa Fred, hangin out on the couch. Look at those happy faces.

20171217_162432

This one is just a group shot of everyone, except me that is, while opening gifts.

20171217_162856

Here we have Everett with a bow on his head looking at his farm puzzle. He really likes chewing on those haha.

20171217_163035

Everett and Remi are both playing with Remi’s puzzle in this one. I love seeing him sitting up and interacting with other kids.

20171217_163641

We have two shots of him opening his big gift from his grandma and grandpa. He got a little sit on train with fun little buttons and lights on the sides. He can have it for a while and grow in to the rest of it.

20171217_163930

Seriously how stinkin cute!

20171217_164040

After that they headed home, they live about an hour and a half away. With it getting dark so early it is hard to stay very long anywhere. Once they left we gave Everett some of the spaghetti casserole.

20171217_18384420171217_183924

He isn’t quite sure what to do or think about it all, and he is slow to bring real food to his mouth. We are trying to use a technique we learned from my cousins this summer called ‘Baby Led Weaning’ It is an approach to introduce solid food, to encourage the baby to self-feed. It is not done with any pureed food on a spoon. It isn’t to wean them off of milk but rather on to solids. Everett is now sitting with us and ‘attempting’ to eat what we eat. He can eat at his own pace, as well as as much or as little as he wants. He isn’t tied to only a few types and kinds of food. He is still getting breast milk and he is under very careful supervision. It seems to be going well. 😀 It is different from what people are used to and it freaks people out but it just fine for babies. I was freaked out at first, but not too much anymore. If you would like to read about it check this link out. Mama Natural.

That was about the end of our night. Oh, I am also testing streaming services to find what will work for us. I started my 7 day trial of Sling TV and can tell you now it isn’t what I want. I will be going to Hulu Live TV next weekend and think I will like it much more. I will also try to plug the coaxial cable right into my TV and pick up local channels. I’ll try to remember to let you know how it all goes.

I’ll see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀

 

What A Weekend!

Hey Everyone!

We need to just jump right in here. Friday I left work a bit early so that I could return my broken router and get another one. I was able to get everything I needed and activated just in time. I crossed my fingers and powered it up, and to my surprise it worked! We were not doomed to live like cavemen this weekend haha. It is hilarious to me that we rely so heavily on the internet now a days. I mean don’t get my wrong, it is partly my livelihood, but still funny to see how it has taken over.

Saturday started out nice an innocent. We woke up like normal and waited for my wife’s mother to come into town. Shortly after we got all dressed up and went out to get a few family pictures. We really don’t have any where Everett is looking because we never have anyone to get his attention. Saturday we did! Here is one of those pictures:

24899812_10208725785260686_6028008282331312876_n.jpg

Afterwards we went home and relaxed for a little bit before going out to my company’s Christmas party. I went out a day or two before and grabbed some stuff for mixed drinks, so that I was covered for the party. My mistake was bringing it all with me instead of portioning out all I wanted to drink. We got to the party around 6pm and proceeded to east a nice dinner of brisket, chicken, potatoes, corn, and beans. The food was catered by a local BBQ restaurant. Throughout the night I just kept filling up my cup, not thinking much about it. Our company hired a comedic magician, for the nights entertainment. He was pretty funny and did a handful of decent illusions. He wasn’t the greatest, but what can you expect from a local company Christmas party haha. Afterwards the DJ turned on the music and the light dimmed. At this point I had already had too much to drink not even realizing it. That is my issue with drinking in general. Once I get going it is hard for me to make myself stop, since I’m no longer thinking correctly. That is why I need to portion what I bring in the future so I don’t have a choice, but to stop at the right amount. That is, if I want to drink at all. I rarely do now. For some reason I always compare, Cale today with Cale from college. Let me be the first to tell you they aren’t the same people anymore and don’t share the same tolerance for alcohol. I guess my thinking was I would be OK and for the night and I knew Everett was taken care of so I could let loose a little bit. I just over did it, and that was a mistake. I don’t want to set bad examples for my son, so I’ll be sure to take it easy in all future endeavors.

I rode home with my parents and got home around 11pm. I was trying to go to sleep and found myself instantly sick to my stomach. I ended up getting sick three times that night. When I woke up I still wasn’t feeling well, as I’m sure you could imagine. I was unable to eat or drink, because my stomach was still upset. My wife, her mother, and Everett went shopping and while they were gone I got sick again! Thankfully after that last time I felt much better. I was able to eat and drink a ton of water. This got me back on my feet a bit. Later that day My wife’s brother and family came down. We were having our kids pose for Christmas pictures, to give to the families. My nephew is old enough to run around so of course that is what he did. It was tough to get him to be in the same picture as Everett. We did manage to get a few good ones with the help of everyone there haha. I don’t have them to show you but they are really cute. They are wearing matching Buffalo flannel clothing, with a white background.

Once everyone left Everett and I took a couple hour long naps that we both clearly needed. this gave my wife time to catch up on some of her work from the week before. I woke up feeling very refreshed and much better. Monday I had the day off, to meet with the plumbers. It was the day that we were getting our sewer main fixed. Finally! I woke up and took Everett to the babysitter. the plumbers came around 9am and were done by 1pm. First they dug out the floor of my basement to get at the problem pipe.

20171211_113305

Upon realizing that it wasn’t a true house trap, and only a ‘U’ they told me I could just have a ‘T’ put in and that it would be much cheaper, with no downside. (I asked haha)  So that is what they did.

20171211_123001

When they were done they filled it all back in and we were good to go!

20171211_131709

As of this afternoon the concrete should be good to go. I was originally quoted $2100 by another company. This company came in and quoted me at $1600. Once finding out that I could have a easier fix they said it would be half, so like $800. When the bill was handed to me it was only $520!!! I couldn’t believe it. That made me and my wallet very happy.

Today I am back at work and all is well. We are getting about two feet of snow today and tomorrow so we may see how well my snow blower works haha. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you had a nice weekend. C-ya tomorrow! 😀 😀

What A Fun Weekend!

Hey Everyone!

This weekend was a blast. I mean nothing crazy happened, but it was an all around good time. It really started on Saturday. My wife left in the morning to get her hair done for the first time since having the baby. It was something she really wanted to get done, so I’m glad I was able to watch Everett while she did that.

Once she got home, I packed my stuff and headed to camp. Before I left I stopped at a place that over looks most of my whole city. I had a nice panorama, but it looked weird when I threw it on here.

20171007_105146

Once I got to camp I helped my brother and dad, who got there before me. We brought wood and supplies to the site. Here are the 4″ pieces that we used to cover the cracks of the other boards.

20171007_130105

When we were on the last board, we had to notch it. This was to ensure that it would fit around a stud. I was notching it out with a hand saw when it jumped up off the board and sliced my thumb. It was pretty bad but I got it wrapped up quickly.

20171007_135411

It is a bit hard to do most things with your thumb covered like this haha. I had a glove over it so I would not get dirt and stuff in it. Plus, I was staying the night so I was going to be there a long time.

Anyway, with that set back out of the way we were able to get the pieces up!

20171007_142054

Since we had more boards from the last time, we started work on one of the ends. It gets the most weather so we wanted to cover it up a bit. We are going to, possibly slat shingle the peaks, and cover the cracks with more 4′” boards like the front.

20171007_171443

A couple of my brother’s friends showed up as well as my older brother. They hung around most of the day. But after a while I was getting hungry for that juicy steak I told you all I would get. I threw it down on our grill over some hot coals and let it ride.

20171007_180928

While that was cooking up nicely, my brother’s friend Ben made me a drink. Stick with me as I explain what’s in it. He mixed bourbon and blueberry preserves in an empty water bottle. Once it was shaken together he poured it through a strainer and into my cup. Similarly, he mixed lemonade and club soda and poured that in too. To finish it off he squeezed a lemon in there and here is what we have!

20171007_181602

It was really dang good. I had a couple of those and enjoyed my steak.

20171007_183132

Once everyone left I hung out by the fire until it got dark. I threw a few more logs on because I wanted coals for breakfast.I decided to just roll my sleeping bag out in the cabin and stay there for the night. It looked creepy but it was better than a tent!

20171007_201634

With my head lamp on I started into my new book! I only got a few chapters in before I turned in for the night.

20171007_202237

I’m pretty glad I slept in the cabin because it rained pretty hard that night. Which did ruin my breakfast plans. I had no coals and with the clouds over head it stayed dark longer than I had hoped. When I woke up I packed my things and just headed home. You can see below what it was like on my way out.

20171008_071108

I stopped off to get pop tarts for breakfast and brought them home for my wife. It is a craving she has somewhat often so I figured it was a good choice. We ran around Sunday and got groceries, as well as cleaned up around the house. My mother in-law came down and wanted to spend some time with Everett. That gave me some time to play a few video games. I checked the mail later and was pleased to find two pieces of mail from real people haha. First a card from my great aunt Arlene. It was a “First Halloween” card fro our son.

20171008_132306

The second was a nice thank you from my brother and his wife.

20171008_132440

We closed out the weekend with some Netflix and ice cream. Sounds good huh?

That is all for me. It was a fun weekend and I’m glad I got some time in the woods! I’ll be back tomorrow, see you then! 😀 😀

What A Way To End The Week!

Hey Everyone!

So you already know how busy we were this week, well it got worse. Yesterday, as I got into work super early I was greeted with an email from the water company. It was to inform us that they had lost power and that the water wasn’t safe for the next few days! At first you may think that isn’t terrible, until you realize how much we depend on clean water.

The follow up email was telling us that we were to boil all water before using it to eat, clean, brush our teeth , and drink. To make it worse we have a baby, whose bottles need cleaned and sanitized, frequently! We have to do this crap through Saturday. To be safe we haven’t been washing clothes either.

I mean to be honest and real here, how in the hell doesn’t the water company have a backup system? They are in charge of thousands of human and non human consumers, and they don’t have a way to ensure that their power doesn’t go out? I mean, I understand it would be costly, for a system to be used in limited capacity, but wouldn’t they think the lives of their customers are worth that? Instead they just had it happen and sent a lousy email saying “Don’t use until further notice.” That all seems pretty unprofessional. Of course they are will still bill us for the use of contaminated water so that’s cool too lol.

I guess that is enough ranting. Tonight I will be watching Everett, while my wife goes to dinner with a few girls she is friends with here. They are all leaving their kids with the dads and heading out!It’ll be a quiet night in for me.

Tomorrow afternoon, at least my brother and I are going to camp. We are going to work on the cabin if we can and clean up the site. The plan was to have a few of his friends out to stay the night. He has backed out, even though it was his thought in the first place. I am not sure if anyone is going to come or stay. I was thinking about staying myself and having a relaxing night in the woods, since that was my plan in the first place. I might grab my tent and pack and enjoy the night.  I’ll be sure to let you know and take some pictures.

I’ll be back Monday with an update. I’ll see you then! 😀 😀
