I have the day off today. This would usually be a yay moment, but we have scheduled some cleaning work of our own through a friend. That, in its own way, is a yay moment, though I’m not feeling very much like yay about it.
I’m tired, a bit burnt out, and really wanting/needing some down time, home time. This clean shouldn’t take too long, about 4-ish hours, which means I should be home relatively early. Before dinner time, at least, which hasn’t been happening lately. It’s really hard to stay motivated when it feel like all I’m doing is getting up, going to work, coming home, making/eating dinner, then watching a show or two because there is no energy left for anything else. This also makes me even more grateful for this time I have/take in the morning to write my Creating Miracles list and blog post. I just get to be me for an hour or so in the morning. YAY!
Those two light saber wielding boys above, Achilles and Enzo, are three years old today! Time goes by so fast. In some ways, it doesn’t seem so long ago that they fit in my hand. I love these two. They are so much fun and make me laugh with their antics. I am truly grateful for them.
Tomorrow and Sunday are days off for me, and I have scheduled nothing else to fill that time. Well, other than re-planting seeds, transplanting seedlings, and possibly renting a rototiller. I say possibly on the rototiller because I’m going to see how I’m feeling and if I’m up to manhandling the beast.
I’m also going to be looking up how much it costs to have dirt delivered. The soil here is mostly rocks so rototilling my garden plot will be challenging, at best, but I still think it’s a possibility. Having dirt delivered would just provide me with some richer soil and make it so I wouldn’t have to rake out quite as many rocks. I’m liking that idea but we shall see if I can budget in the dirt. If not, I’ll be needing a really good pair of gloves (I’m going to need those anyway) and prepare to have blisters on my hands, regardless. As tired as I am this morning, I wish fairies would come along during the night and do the work for me. 🙂
I also need to get t-shirts made for Curb Addresses Save Lives. The season is approaching and we need to be ready. A friend of mine said I should include parking lot painting to the business, to help supplement its income. I’m giving this some thought. I don’t think it is a bad idea, I just really know nothing about parking lot painting. Mostly, I have no idea on the pricing part of it. I’m going to need to do some research, it seems.
I would need to get a pressure washer, I think. I would probably need to start out with just renting one, in the beginning. I have been kind of thinking it wouldn’t be such a bad plan to have a pressure washer for the business anyway. I’m going to HOA’s with the curb painting and could have pressure washing the curb before applying the address as part of the service to help the addresses last longer. This would add time to the process since the curb would have to thoroughly dry before I could add the address, but I think I’m ok with that. If we aren’t having to go door to door to sell our service, then we have more than enough time for pressure washing and dry time, I believe. It’s a thought.
Anyway, I had better get going. I need to leave soon and there are some things I need to do here before taking off. I hope everyone has a most amazing day!!!
