Just working on my resume and trying to beef it up my pushing my 48 years of life experience and downplaying 14 years of being an amateur ass wiper. Back I. The navy we had a saying when doing inspections and walkthroughs to test our competency: ďif you canít dazzle them with your brilliance, baffle them with bullshit.Ē

Speaking of which, I should get back in the habit of writing. I have some ideas for stories floating around in my head and I feel guilty because I havenít attended a single meeting of the local writers group yet.

Went to Lowes to get a cover for the curb find Monsta grill.
Had to buy the 72" long cover.
Found the exact model grill on the floor with a price tag of $699
Damn did I score!!!!!!

After the usual.
Coffee, breakfast, homeschool, lunch, more homeschool, check mail

Went to the basement and drained the sludge out of the bottom of the water heaters.
We are on a well. Brown sediment settles. Gotta filter it before you drink it. Run it before you shower.
Figured it's spring. When we we got that last one installed about a year ago, the installer said do it annually and explained how.
Took 7 5 gallon buckets for the new one (the behemoth) and only 2 for the little one.
Had to come up the stairs, oomph.
Exhausting.

'Twas a 2 day project. (I get wore out just walking up the driveway), but raked the leaves out of the ditch at the bottom of the yard so the runoff stream don't run up during a downpour.
Dried them out on the grass for a day , then loaded them in the rolling garbage can and dumped them in the woods. Little princeess watched from inside.

Then I pulled all the hair out of the sink drain pipe (slow drainer) in the master bath.
Makes me wonder- Why do women cut their hair over the sink and then stuff it down the drain? C'mon!

Lol. It’s nice to get an “amen” from the choir!

The rest is a rant that’s been snipped to the pub.

Finished putting together a small 6x8 greenhouse we bought earlier in the year. The weather has been so crummy it took forever to get it together, but it finally is - even though most of my seed starters are now ready to go in to the ground.

Also managed to clean up a bunch of the garden space and do some tilling. I still need to get the new fence up. Hopefully thatíll happen in the next couple of days.
