Brian went to Texas to be a big tv star.
Well, not really, he did go to Texas where he was filmed in a commercial for Mahindra Tractors. There were twelve people nationwide they looked at, three were chosen. So, he went down there last week, came home Thursday.
They said something about him going back at the end of the month for four days to meet with the Mahindra people and to see the premier of the commercials.
A few months ago I got an offer from MagicJack to get a MagicJack Plus at half price. I jumped on it, thinking his company having a phone number besides the cell number would be a good idea. I finally set it up last week. Then I ordered a phone off of Amazon and set that up Friday night. Yesterday, I recorded the “away from the phone” message for voicemail. Despite my funky voice (still not healed) it sounded okay.
He’s going to Tulare for the big Ag show next month.
We need to get a video made for him to hand out to dealers of his top and side links. We need to do a brochure.
We need to design a logo for him so I can make shirts.
Now that he’s got a phone number, I designed and ordered five hundred business cards from Vistaprint yesterday (found an online coupon, even after using my own graphics, the cost was under seventeen dollars).
While he was gone last week, I noticed water dripping from the wall outside the house, from the laundry room. It wasn’t inside, just out. He checked it out yesterday and had to cut out the wall. He found the source of the leak, fixed it (easy fix, just not convenient to get to, leak was caused by something the people who built the house back in the seventies had done crappily). Right now he’s gone to Home Depot to get drywall mud and new hoses for my washer because the other ones aren’t very long. And an extension cord for under the desk here in the office. I finally set up the UPS battery backup while he was gone. I have the modem, both routers, his computer and monitor plugged in to it, the cord I used is way too long so he’s getting a shorter one. So, today, he’ll be patching up the laundry room wall.
And I’m going to the 24 hour Disney thing at the end of February. Will be gone two nights.
And driving on freeways leave me scared s*itless. Seriously. I took him to the airport Tuesday morning. Later that day I took his mom to the doctor. Tuesday night, I feel asleep by eight. I slept until seven Wednesday morning. I was that drained from the drive. I had to drive down to the airport Thursday to pick him up. He called to let me know he was waiting while I was en route. I answered using my bluetooth headset and I said “I’m terrified”. And I’m going to have to do it again at the end of the month. I wish I’d gotten back on that horse sooner. This car doesn’t seem to handle as sweetly as the one that went over the hill. I keep thinking it’s going to slip sideways. We’re going to get new tires, maybe that will help me feel more comfortable.
Because it’s a long trip to Anaheim.
Well, off to take a shower. I have to do end of the year paperwork so that will be out of the way when I need to put the video together.
Which we’ll be recording after he gets the implement in the backyard that he bought for cheap repaired, cleaned up and painted.
Thank goodness his niece and nephew have offered to help with the recording.
So much to do!
