The new windows for our house have been ordered and are scheduled to begin installation June 19 - yippee! Today's mail brought one of the landscaper's bids for my back yard work and the cost wasn't too bad. I'm waiting for one more bid, so I hope to have a landscaping contract signed by the end of the week. Hmmmm, oh yes, we need one more hvac bid. We really want that in before the summer heat sets in.
Now we have to get our family room ready for construction - something I've wanted to do for years. What I'm not looking forward to is dealing with all the stuff. Well, I'm sure the pain of decluttering and temporary storing will be well worth it. Let's get on with it!!
Every 15 year old boy needs to earn some money, right? Of course, right! DS Brendan has been mowing the church yard for awhile now, as well as our own, and enjoys having some extra cash. A friend pulled him aside at church with a lead on a part-time lawn mowing job for a guy running a little business to pay for school. Brendan will only be working with him on Saturdays, but all day Saturday, and earning a nice amount of money for a kid. He'll have to work like he's never worked before, but it'll be really good for him. I just hope he can do a good job for the guy - Brendan hasn't been too much of a perfectionist before and I understand this guy is.
All this is wonderful, except now the mom comes out in me because he starts this Saturday and Brendan will be performing in "Taming of the Shrew" as Hortensio. The boy is going to be totally beat, but has to get cleaned up and ready for the play. He says he'll be fine, but he's never put in a day like he's going to have on Saturday, lol! Well, we will see.
Well, I'm off to work on those soldier uniforms some more. I didn't have a chance to work on them yesterday evening as the boys were wearing them for their rehearsal. The twins said they weren't looking forward to their performances this weekend because that meant it was all over and they were having way too much fun.
