At least I got complimented for making the place look nice, but when I mentioned that we could use a better back splash in the kitchen and I showed her some ideas on Pinterest she told me to focus on 4 other things around the house first.

Today I'm hoping it warms up enough that I can paint the remaining four shutters for the front of the house. The house looks better from the curb but the lack of shutters is conspicuous.

I also need to get a temporary outdoor rug for the front porch. I'm not going to be able to patch concrete with temperatures around freezing - and I still have some painting to do.

Lots of laundry to get done today. Also busy at the girls school volunteering in the copy room and having my mentor lunch with a kid I've been mentoring for 3 years now. Wife is also headed home from business trip to trying to make sure that the usual stuff is done.

Documenting the myriad of psychological, psychiatric, speech, occupational, physical, neurological, etc. therapies that our family has used since Justin was diagnosed 12 years ago. Yet here we are.

I have until lunchtime tomorrow to get it done; itís germane to the application to get another facility.

My wife is home teleconferencing and baking cookies. Itís actually nice, though I did run out to the grocery store and picked up Panera.

Other than that I didnít do diddly.

- I mowed the lawn brentwood home coupon

- I raked up fallen needles under a gargantuan evergreen next to my garage. It sheds big long needles every fall before the deciduous trees even lose all their leaves.
600 $ ? Too much no ?

For us, yes. It involved removing a section of aluminum fence (which to be fair would involve just removing bolts) to access it in the rear of our home.

Personally, I like the shade that the tree offers for our back yard and didn't want it completely gone. Getting up on a ladder is one of my minor phobias but I'm patting myself on the back for doing it - on a windy day no less.

There's still another limb rubbing up against the house but I'll get that at a later date.

I wanted to lead you guys to a drawing of the ship so you get the idea.
I tried like the dickens to give you guys a working url. Finally I just emailed it to myself.
I need to print it. I could shoot a pic with my phone but don't know what to do with it.
