construction zone September 28th, 2012
Our road is like a crazy zone. They are replacing the water pipes and generally making a huge mess of everything, eveywhere. The house has been shaking non-stop and there is a constant clashing and clanging. It’s a GREEEEAT backdrop for getting work done at home. Bowser likes it though because it’s like his own personal obstacle course when we go for walks. Big dirt piles and gravel mounds, all sorts of things to smell, and construction workers to say hi to. I haven’t lost him down and trenches, yet.
Other than that, we’ve both been working our arses off. Too much work. My weeks either seem to be 20 hours or 80 hours, no middle ground. If all my clients could have a little get together and disperse their projects a bit, THAT WOULD BE GREAT. But, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel! On Monday I’ll be out in sunny CA to meet Jill and continue with her on her epic roadtrip. If you haven’t read her blog yet, you must. There are some seriously enviable pictures and things going on in her life right now!
We will be meeting in San Fran, pit-stopping in Monterey, then driving down the coastal highway through Big Sur. Then, heading east through Sequoia National Forest and Death Valley. Then, just outside Vegas, in Beatty, NV (which I cannot wait to see) Jill will be participating in a tough mudder. I thought about signing up as well, but then realized I’d be much better volunteering to give people buzz cuts and mullets before the start of the race. Not yet sure if this pertains to Jill or not. Wahoo! Finally, we will be staying two nights in Vegas, where Matt will be meeting us and hopefully keeping us in line. I cannot wait to get out there and enjoy a break and overdose on gummy bears!!! YAYAYYYY.
And the last bit of news is that baby countdown is officially on!!!! Any day/week now I will be an aunt!!! I can’t wait to hear about my new nephew (or niece), though I’m guessing nephew.
