Quick Tuesday!

Hey Everyone!

Last night I was gearing up to pull out a ton of weeds, and other plants along the side of my garage, but plans changed. My wife text me and asked if we could hang out in our little inflatable pool, and that sounded like a better idea. 😉

Later we cooked out on the grill. Everything tastes better on the grill, we all know that. We had some hot sausage with peppers and onions. If you were wondering, yes it was delicious.

I have made some headway on my side technology project with that other company. I was able to get a hold of the manufacture of the machine and obtained the manual. I know now how to test the addressing and can get that thing up and running for them. I asked when I could come back to tinker with it and they said they are making me a key to come and go as I please. That will be nice, since I don’t work well with people looking over my shoulder. I hope to have it up and running this next time, which should be attainable, unless something else pops up as well. I would also like to map that part of their network out a little bit, so I know what is up in the future.

I have a few other things going on today that are keeping this post shorter. :/ I have to go meet a plumber any second now to fix my darn toilet….DOH!

I hope to see you all again tomorrow! 😀 😀

Amazing (Busy) Weekend!

Hey Everyone!

Back from another great and productive weekend! 😀 😀

Friday wasn’t fun by any means but I did get to cross something off the to do list. After work Friday I picked Everett up from his last day at daycare, went home and started working on our tub. I had to chip, pull, and chisel the old caulking out. That was the worst thing I have done in a long while, even worse than painting our fence. After that it was time to clean and re-caulk it. I tried for the first time the hand squeezed tubes of sealant, thinking it would be easier in that tight space, but I really didn’t like it. I went through 4 of the little things and at the end of the day would have liked more, but that amount at least filled the space back up. So on that note everything is looking good.

Saturday was our super busy day. We woke up, had breakfast and headed to my wife’s mom’s house. We got to her place and cooked out on the grill, fr lunch. Everett was having a great time under the patio umbrella.

My wife was invited as a guest to the wedding of her dad’s, wife’s, mother’s wedding. She was also there to take pictures of the event. At the same time I was heading out to my best friends 30th birthday party that his wife threw him. They happened to be the same time and in different directions, so I missed the wedding. I was able to catch up with him and his family for a couple of hours before heading back to the reception on the lake. There they had a beautifully decorated ball room on the ground level over looking part of the lake.

The dinner consisted of everything on my plate haha. Keep it short and sweet! 😀

Once it was time to leave the reception we stopped to visit my wife’s dad. He isn’t in the greatest health anymore and it has come on all of the sudden. His brother and sister in-law were there too. We hung out for a bit and then stopped back at her mom’s to get Everett. By the time we made it home again it was 10:30pm and we were beat!

As days go, Sunday was next on the list. We had 2 softball games in the middle of the day. In short we won both games pretty convincingly. I pitched the second game until it was a blow out and then we all swapped positions. I hit a big home run in the second game, but other than that a quit hitting day for me with only a .500 average.

When I got home I just stayed in my ball pants and mowed the grass, and trimmed the edges. Everett was outside with him mom enjoying the sun and the pool we inflated. When I got finished I just stripped down and laid in the pool. Then the randomness started. We wanted to head back to the local Ollie’s Bargain store to look around. We wanted to get something for the yard. We we did and headed home. More on that in a bit. My mother and wife decided to take the initiative and weed what they could of our massive garden. It is over run with that Morning Glory crap and it is everywhere.

So it all looks like that up top

They got this back half looking pretty good, but had to stop due to time and lack of room in the truck bed lol. If they could do this for another 3 solid days they could weed all of the flower beds in the front and back yard, if they hustled. 😀 In the mean time I was draining the pool to move it for our big purchase! I was in the background setting it all up.

We bought this nice offset umbrella for the yard as well as the bug net, four chairs, and glass table all for $200! 😀 I’m grinning at that price all day. 😀

Lastly a nice look from within. If you look close you can see Everett ‘helping’ in the last four pictures haha. He stood out there with them the whole time, just holding on to the wheel barrow.

Once I was done unloading the scraps at my parent’s house, we called it a night and here we are. It was a great weekend I would do it all over again in a heartbeat if given the chance. I hope you all had an amazing weekend as well. I’ll be back again tomorrow for another daily post, and hope to see you then! 😀 😀

Coffee Talk!

Hey Everyone!

A little later than I thought I would be. Generally Friday’s are slow for everyone here, but that isn’t the case today! My co worker is retiring, and the other two aren’t here. I have been fielding things all morning long. I have already worked on both of our conference rooms for different reasons, fixed up a company laptop, answered some shipping emails, and worked on an email signature for one employee. I’m a fan of getting things done so I jumped on all of those and got them done.

Anyway! It’s Friday, and I’m loving it. The weather here is supposed to be hot and sunny. After work today I’m going to pick up Everett from daycare, head home, fill up the inflatable pool we bought, fill it, clean the car, then jump in the full pool! Everett has some floaties that we want to try out and those plastic kiddie pools suck, lets be honest, so I bought a bigger one. 😀

We are supposed to be in a ‘heatwave’ for the next week here with temperature soaring above 90 degrees for multiple days. To top it all off it gets humid here, so it is no fun at all. I’ll probably die playing softball this weekend. Saturday we are heading back to camp for the diaper party my brother is having. It’ll be nice to spend some time in the woods. I haven’t been able to as much as I would have liked so far, so this will be refreshing. 😀

What are your go to hot summer day activities? Do you grab some of your favorite ice cream, hope in a pool, relax indoors with some A/C? Let me know in the comments below!

Other than that I’ll leave it short and sweet today! Go enjoy the nice weekend, when you can, and remember to be safe. Wear that sunscreen and drink a ton of water! 😀 😀
