4th weekend

Well, we had to work on Monday, but I kind of lump the holiday in with the weekend. It was a pretty productive couple of days. Brian got the downstairs bathroom sink installed. It gave him quite a bit of trouble, so he was not able to get to the trim. He also put in the rest of the outdoor lighting and adjusted the location of a couple of the security cameras.

We also made some additional headway on the driveway. I don’t think I’ve mentioned this project recently, but our driveway has needed replaced since we moved in almost 21 years ago. We share a driveway with the neighbor, so this has added a layer of complication to getting the project done. We’ve been trying to get him to agree on replacing it for about 10 years now. And, since we’re hoping to move next year, the urgency for completing this project has increased. So, we gave him a deadline of this summer and he’s not going to do it. But, we’ll be getting our half done–they’ll just have to cut through the asphalt on the property line. It’s not a big deal, but it’s going to look weird (like one of those double houses where the one side looks all nice and the other side is dilapidated). That said, due to our budget, we’re only getting the top half done. The bottom half is in repairable shape, so we’ve been working on that and made some good progress in the past few days.

Also, we spent yesterday afternoon updating all of the artwork at the office. Brian’s been framing up new stuff since last fall, but wanted to hang everything at once. It looks great! And we won’t have to worry about that again for a while as this is the first time he’s changed things up since we opened in 2008.

As far as fun activities go, there weren’t many of those, but I sure do like making good progress on things that need to be done. I did go to Judy’s baby shower on Sunday and that was a nice break from the action.

I’m sure we probably did some other stuff, but I can’t think of it.
