Sunny but windy

Life is still chaotic around here. Friday night we stayed up late (around 4:30-5 am) just talking with friends, not even drinking! Saturday was the IKEA trip, which we got back late from since we went to bed late and we got up late. Duane spent $140 on beer, seems like I should spend $140 on something doesn't it? Sunday was working at the friend's house all day.

Duane's customers were in town Monday and Tuesday for a thing at his work. I went out to eat with them on Monday. It was a very nice dinner that I didn't have to pay for, but it meant being out late again (who knew we would talk for 2 hours after dinner?). Yesterday was a blur at work and then I was at the friend's house working. His brother helped, so that was nice. We had dinner afterwards (Duane was "resting" at home).

Next Thursday-Sunday I will be on my own. Duane is going to PA to.........drink beer with a friend. He bought his ticket with ff miles, so I guess I can't complain about the money.

Tonight is working at the friend's house again. We were supposed to finish the crown molding on Sunday but we ended up being a little short (guess someone didn't measure quite right). The open house is going to be this Sunday. TV is gangbusters next week, so I am looking forward to being home at a reasonable time and vegging on the couch.

It is really nice out today, but very windy. Luckily rain is predicted for the next three days. We wouldn't want to get too happy with all this sun.

Bug 2.0

I gave Duane the bug, but I think that was inevitable. He was sick Saturday night and you know a lot of guys are big babies when they are sick. My niece was having her first communion at 8:15 mass on Sunday (45 minutes away in Janesville). Sick boy got to stay home, but barely awake girl got to go to Janesville. I did get to spend some quality time though.

Saturday was a party at my brother's house for his father-in-law's 75th birthday. We played Rock Band most of the time and didn't get home until late.

We are currently immersed in getting a friend's house ready to list. He wants to have the open house this weekend, but I don't see that happening. I know it doesn't have to be perfect, but it does need to be finished. Duane and I are going to IKEA on Saturday (and a beer store), so that will be fun (although we are going to IKEA to get things for the house). Why is this house taking so much effort? Well the friend lives out of town, so can't be here all the time. He lived in it during grad school and then rented it, so the condition was pretty bad. Our market is getting better (450+ showings on our listings the past two weeks!), but if your house is crap it won't sell.

We had beautiful weather this weekend, but we are back to crap weather this week. Low forties, heavy rain/snow possible. Yuk.

I got nothing except for this intestinal bug

It sucks let me tell you. I was out sick one day this week, and probably should have been out 2 other days. This weekend isn't a calm one either.

The person who invented Immodium should be praised.

That is all.
