Here, but busy

So, so busy. Busy at work, busy at home. Keeping my chin up and knowing that although the next two weeks are going to be really tough, we'll get through them. Because time does pass, no matter how much is going on.

The deck on the back of our house is now not on the back of our house. Rather, it's in a pile in our backyard. Step one of demolition is complete. Now we (and when I say "we", I mean Brian and whoever he gets to help him) move to Step two, tearing the sunroom to the ground. Then Jeff can start re-building the room and deck from the ground up. Doing it the right way, not the half-assed, leaky-roof, rotting subfloor, nowhere-near-enough-support-beams way some previous owner did.

And we certainly didn't plan it this way, but we just happen to have one other project about to commence. Monday or Tuesday, professional landscapers are coming to completely tear up the crazy, overgrown gardens, rocks, railroad ties, etc. in our front yard. Then over the course of a few days they'll backfill everything with topsoil, grade it nicely and seed and fertilize a lawn. Oh, how excited we are for a front lawn! Two years of staring at the atrocity in front of our house was enough, so we finally bit the bullet, dug into our pockets and decided to get this project done and overwith, once and for all.

So there's a lot going on here.

Not to mention that the next two weeks may be the busiest of the year at work. So busy, in fact, I'm working a full, Monday through Friday week, this coming week.

We can do it, we can do it, we can do it...
