Bad Blogger, I Know

I have been so busy lately, I can barely breathe...this is a good and bad thing at the same time. Bad part of it means I haven't had time to write or blog or exercise, and that sucks but the good part of it is that I have gotten tons of stuff done, and have been able to help out family as well.

I am slowly making way on a few different things I have on several different burners. I am trying to take things one day at a time so I don't get myself completely overwhelmed because it would be really easy to do that. The AC is working as it should and actually it is not needed today because we have a bit of overcast (which is a nice turn). The pool is working as it should (minus the problem with the solar panels), and that is great news because it would be nice to enjoy it at some point (and the solar panel should be an easy fix once I get the part and time). The unpacking is slowly happening, partly due to complications and partly due to other things taking priority but I hope to make a big dent in that today. There is still an issue of the sprinkler system with means I am continuing to water by hand or above ground sprinkler.

We still don't have floors in the rooms damaged by the water leak in May, and all those same rooms still need paint on the new drywall, but we can live with it for now. No laundry facilities for now, but Grandma lives near by. No vanity or sink in downstairs bathroom, but upstairs is complete so that works for now. Yard needs some serious attention, but that is a work in progress too. I have a blog about the house and the adventures it leads to, you can check it out at the Bamboo Lagoon if you want. I am still in the process of adding in old posts from when we first bought the house.

Anyhow, that is the gist of things going on in this part of the world.

I am glad that you get to work on things today that you need to do - and I thank you for all the help you have devoted to your family - you make your mother very proud! I would love to have a garden party - I have the hat! We could work on it together and have some of that plum wine you have been saving - we can have it while we sit on the steps of the pool and soak our feet after a hard days work - just tell me when sweetie!
