The one job...

I hate most as a homeowner is the job that is WAY overdue at my house... staining the deck. Ugh, I despise it. We've had the stain for a year and we just keep putting it off. The deck has almost no stain left on it now because we have put it off so long. And I know it's bad for the deck and the wood. But I hate it! This weekend, we will pressure wash and strip the stain that is left and hopefully stain next weekend. Then we should be good for another 4 years. Only 4 years? What the heck?! Someone needs to invent a stain that lasts for 20 years. I will be your best friend...

Well, I'm not, but she is...

Time...

When did time start moving so very quickly? Wasn't it just the end of Spring yesterday? It can't be that we are in the middle of August. It's impossible. That means I am only 4 short months from student teaching, from not earning a paycheck for four months. That day seemed so far away when I started the program 14 months ago. Now, it seems impossibly near.

Gorgeous...

My best girlfriends sent me my favorite kind of flowers last May when I was having a tough time... They were GORGEOUS, almost as wonderful as my girls!

Cleaning out the...

Garage. It is now clean. Clean enough to park a car in there. It's a miracle. Cesar and I spent a good part of Saturday emptying out the garage and putting random stuff away. It had simply become unbearable and since the cat boxes are in the garage (they use a dog door that we installed in the door from the house to the garage), we were hoping a clean garage would encourage better litter box behavior. We'll see. But we swept and hosed it out and it looks good. Now if only the office would take care of itself...
