Summer “Fun” Has Begun

I usually don’t like this time of year.  This is the time of year when the kids are home, and schedules get really screwed up.  This is also the time of year when it seems like money is getting spent almost as bad as Christmas time.

huskyJust a few weeks ago I decided to get some work done around the house.  My wife requested that I power wash the house, and get some other work done.  Out came my Husky power washing unit that I got a few years back.  My neighbor “B” came out and offered to let me use his power washer.  We also had some trees removed so I had to work around them.  After power washing the house finding where the ants were coming from became easier.  After talking to a few people I found out that the amount of rainfall has made a lot of ants head for their homes as well.

My wife got a fire pit from me for Christmas last year and she has been anxious to use it.  We went to Harbor Freight and purchased a wood splitter.  We probably won’t use it again after this year, but it was worth it just to make her happy.

If I was a bit better off for money I would probably just hire someone to do the things around my house.  I am not against work, but it just never seems to end.
