The topic: It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood


Brian is out making product, the handymen are here, moving the two hundred plus bags of mulch/bark got from Lowe's when they had five bags for ten bucks.  They are stacked high on two pallets, he had to use the dump truck to get them home, then use his tractor to get them off of the truck - he doesn't have the physical strength or time to move them himself. He had moved one of the pallets/stacks into the backyard with his tractor, but the tractor started to go to three tires because things weren't balanced right, so he just got it so that no cat could jump from the top of the pallets to the roof. And that's where it's been since he got them home.

Recall last month he got notification from a supplier to come get his stuff by the end of this month, they need the money. Well, there's a lot of stuff and it's heavy and he'll need his tractor. Which he can't use because of bags of mulch. So, the handymen are here right now, moving the bags, one by one.

And they're finished, they only unstacked enough so that he can move the tractor without accidents. They're gone.

And I'm doing paperwork. Catching up. Two and a half months' worth. There were excuses. My hip hurt. I couldn't sit. It was hot. The cats wanted attention. I had ribbon that needed beads glued on. I had paper that needed to be glued together (phase one of the big project is done). There was always something that was a higher priority.

I started the paperwork over a week ago, then my laptop started having problems. My $125 laptop I got on eBay a few years ago. The monitor kept flashing off. A real PITA to work with. I told Brian I'd like a new laptop. He thought about it, said "okay, we'll just put off a new dishwasher". The laptop got here Monday and it took me most of the week to get it set up. But now, it's set up and it works like a charm.

One stinky thing was the WiFi download speed was under 5Mbps which is just wrong. Upload was close to six times that much. Rebooting the cable modem and the router took care of that, now it's running over 120Mbps, which is a lot nicer.

So, I've got all of the payments matched up with the quotes and need to set up new accounts, then do the invoicing for the past two and a half months.

After that, I have reconciliations again. June, July and August.

It would be nice to be finished by Monday.
