Thursday, March 25, 2004 Woohoo! It’s been hectic around here the past week. Brian and his brother started trimming the trees on the bank last Saturday. Brian thought the lift would be here for just the day, figured they’d do a tree an hour. HA! They finally finished Monday afternoon. There’s a big bill for the lift. But the trees look much nicer. And the “tree hating neighbor” is ecstatic. Brian was up in their driveway with his dump truck, loading branches and pine needles into it and I went up to help. Then, she came out and she helped. She was just so happy. She even washed her windows because now she gets lots more light into her house. And the nightlight in my bathroom doesn’t stay on during the day, either. *grin*
Of course, there’s a big huge mess in our yard. Brian’s been so busy taking off plans for customers and putting out bids for work that he hasn’t been able to clean the tree debris in our yard. There is lots in both the front and backyards. The cats are having a blast with the stuff in the backyard.
One of the things that concerned me was the loss of bird nests, but it doesn’t seem that it was that bad. I did find one very small egg. :(
I know there’s more.
Oh, yeah. Brian got his work truck back from Ford yesterday. The transmission they fixed a few months back died. Turns out they didn’t tighten a bolt and it ended up busting the tranny. They rebuilt it. This morning, he sees that they also busted one of the headlight lenses. He wasn’t really happy about that, it’s not like he has lots of time lately. At least he is getting those plans done. Some of them he’s put off for months and now the people need to have his bid. Otherwise, they might have to go with someone else. These are high buck homes and it might help pull us out of the hole we went into last year. If he gets them, he’s going to be a very busy boy.
I know there’s other stuff I wanted to put in here, but I’ll be darned if I can think of it now. Maybe later. I’ve got a ton of housework to catch up on. My whole routine is off because of the tree trimming and having Brian home. So, I’d best get busy.
