The house is almost done. Dad will be coming home tomorrow and we have to have everything put back to “reasonably normal” before them. Still lots to do, but not as much as could be!
My sister takes the top prize for getting the most work done, for having the vision, and for keeping us on track. She’s been a spider monkey on crack getting this stuff knocked out. You got a project that needs completion? You’d do well to hire her! In fact, let me just say this: She should run for office. She can balance budgets, clean a cabinet of unwanted and unnecessary detritus, and she can sweep clean the entire corrupt stable of yes-men and boondogglers!
You think I’m kidding, but the woman is a whirlwind and gets shit done!
My little sis has been here, too, helping with the yard and turning it into a glorious green haven. It’s beautiful! After one day of new flowers in one basket, we’ve had an increase in butterflies. And hummingbirds. Now if only the oranges would ripen faster! We’ve had a few and they were delicious. The rest need only to catch up so we can enjoy their incredible sweet flesh!
My bro-in-laws (technically, bros-in-law, but what.ev.er) have both been here helping, too. Bathroom redone. Huge room repainted. Everything taken care of.
We’re three + weeks into this project and nearing the end. All of us are still alive and accounted for. That’s success!
Now, fingers crossed that my dad loves what’s been done and what little projects we have lined up for him.
Mostly, I hope he realizes that this brought his girls together because we love him and would do anything for him. That should hold off some of the yelling for at least 20 minutes. (Fingers crossed!)
Time to get ready for the craziness of the day!
