Today has been pretty busy.
I got to work at 615, and was having a good day. then it started snowing like we were is Wisconsin or something. Then, there must have been some power surges with the city power, and we were without power for approximately one hour. In our business, that is not good. Anyway, we got back up and going and at lunch. i stopped by the eye doctor to check on an appointment for Austin. So, then i go home for a sandwich and my middle child which is 19 is supposed to meet me at the house to check on her books to start college. She didnt show, and then wouldn't answer her phone. It's kinda a long story,and i really am not sure how to deal with that now days.
So, on my way back to work, i get a call, the schools are closing early at 1pm. So, i go back to work for a short time and go pick up Austin from school and take him to the eye doctor. After that, i take him home and go back to work. At work, Dad calls me and says he found Austin's wallet at his house in back of Austin's truck. So, when i get home from work, I call and we make plans to meet for dinner and get the wallet. Just as I am about to walk out the door, I run across a deal. A guy wants a storage barn cleaned out and some wood hauled off, So I call him and we make plans to meet there. So, i hook up the big trailer, and get coveralls, gloves, hat, flash lights etc etc.
After eating a quick dinner, I make a B line to the storage barn. It's mostly junk, but there is a tool box, some scrap metal, and a few interesting pieces and some "reclaimed wood". LOL. There was a neat old desk lamp, a old tea pot , some other silly worthless stuff. I will check it out more tomorrow.
So after getting inside from the 18 degrees outside, I am now washing my coveralls for tomorrow. I am waiting for the lovely, advanced Maytag Epic Z washer that i paid a crap load of money for a few years ago, to get done washing my coveralls. It will no longer go into the spin cycle by itself. This is after I spent 86 dollars on a front door seal last week. And i think the bearing is going out because when it is spinning, it sounds like the Space Shuttle taking off.
So, tomorrow the plan for after work (or maybe on lunch) is sort through the stuff from the storage barn and maybe make a trip to the scrap yard.
