Just what are the consequences, anyway?

Nothing tonight

Tomorrow -- soccer, soccer and soccer. 8:30am with my birthday kid (tomorrow's my youngest's 4th) then 11:30am and 2:50pm games with my son's U8 team. We'll head out somewhere for a birthday dinner that night.

Sunday -- not a whole lot. Dinner out for Mother's Day with my wife's family.

Cut wood is now all split, so now I either repeat tomorrow, or do something else.

Mowed the garden too, weeds were 12"+ already, so using the rider I slowed the throttle down to minimum, and crept along nice and easy, it cut everything without bogging or clogging the underside of the deck.
Bushogs generally run at 540rpms, that's pretty slow, and they do just fine.

today we went a surprise birthday party for one of my daughters best friend. Her husband put it together and it was nice to actually get invited. We had a good time. Lots of kids, lots of parents. Kids are exhausted, overall it was a good time. Tomorrow we have puppy training in the AM. We are also inheriting 4 chickens from a person in my daughter's preschool class that is moving to FL. We talked about it doing it but decided to wait, but since we are getting them for free we decided what the hell. Then we'll probably go to the town's Garden Mart that the Garden club is holding the town green. They just finished putting together a map of all the town's farms which is pretty cool.

Then we'll be making yet antoher raised bed for the 6 asparagus crowns that I bought my wife for Mother's day. We got all male crowns which will hopefully work out much better then the ones we planted last year.

No sure what we're doign on Sunday. My wife was brilliant and decided to schedule an extra shift in the ED for Mother's day...

Should be a pretty full day tomorrow...

I am a little late chiming in so here it is -

Yesterday - Let 2 of them have a "metal health" day from school so that we could go to the boat. My oldest is in town from college with his girlfriend. It was interesting, 5 minutes on the water and it started raining. 20 minutes on the water and it was a full blown storm.

Last night - Hung out with the wife and the oldest and his girl friend and played some games.

Today - AM-Afternoon going to watch my tennis team in the semi finals. If we win today there is a good chance that we will take the finals. Later on ..... not sure

Tomorrow - Not sure as the oldest 2 are suppose to plan the day for mom. Then she leaves at 4:00 for another week in Calgary.

Last night, paint, cut and install baseboard. Today, cut and install more baseboard, make door for cupboard under stairs, create window trim in basement. Do all things in preparation to sell house. Sunday, more of the same. Then, continue to sweat about housing prices here and at new location.
