Saturday 4/7/2012

Well anyway.
I have been working outside most of the day.  A few spurts on the internet here and there and a trip to the bank and a couple of stores.  Specifically: Home Depot. I wanted to get started on revamping the drip irrigation system out front - though I must admit I like standing out there and water the stuff with a hose.

I also found a nice stretch of carpet for the trailer.  It was one that was already cut, rolled up and sitting in a bin with a several other rolls of carpet that were marked down.  The trailer doesn't need a lot of carpet.  I got enough to cover the area that needs to be covered for $44.00 - marked way down from it's original price.  It's high quality carpet, too.

Installing it, of course, will be a completely different story.  I had too many other things going on to deal with that, though.  I spent the entirety of my gift cards on that carpet and all that material to fix the drip system, which has various problems throughout the entire system both front, sides and back of yard.  I had enough of that stuff leftover from the material I had bought from my work to be able to deal with problems for a long, long, time but that entire bag full of a lot of money's worth of stuff "disappeared".  A conversation with a particular individual here leads me to believe it was thrown in the trash by mistake.

My son finally showed up - he has been staying at his mom's house now for whatever, unknown reason and I am not pushing him on it.  She tends to do guilt trips - I lived with her for 16 years so I pretty much know how she operates - I am guessing pressure from her. I am going to have to get used to not having him around, anyway, sooner or later he will leave both of us to head out on his own.  That is the natural way of things, yes?

Interesting day. Up early - 4:00, jolted out of deep sleep by the ridiculous phone alarm - annoying as all get out but that's the inten...
