Weekend Happenings

How was your weekend?  Our weekend was ok.  Saturday we went shopping for a few essentials and browsed the clearance sections of our favorite stores.  We also went to Goodwill.  Ben wanted a couple of sports coats and found two that he liked for under $12 total.  I didn’t find anything while we were there.  We went to PetSmart.  They were having a huge pet adoption event so I was able to get my puppy fix.  So cute!  We also raked 11 huge bags of leaves from our yard.  There are still plenty where that came from.  We’ll be raking tons more next weekend.  While we were raking in the yard we let Peanut run around (attached to a stake in the ground).  He really enjoyed himself and of course barked at everyone that walked by.

In related news, we’ll be having our third and hopefully final tree removal round in a couple of weeks.  We’re having two large trees removed and 3 trees scaled back from our roof.  We hate spending the money but are looking forward to having this behind us.

Today (Sunday) was definitely uneventful for me.  I worked on a report that I have due at work tomorrow from 8: 30 AM until 8 PM.  Needless to say, I didn’t really have much of a Sunday.  Ben replaced all but one of the switches and outlets in our master bedroom.  We are happy to report that we will be getting bedroom furniture very soon which inspired us to finish the outlets and such.  Now if only we can solve the outlet/switch issue that we’re having in our living room.  That is the room that we originally started with and it still isn’t finished.  We are trying to avoid having to hire an electrician but it looks like we might have to.  Unfortunately we started with the most complicated room with regard to electrical wiring.  Ben easily and successfully finished the bedroom so it isn’t like he doesn’t know what he’s doing.  Our friend Jon suggested that it could be the breaker so we will try replacing that soon and see if it works.  Stay tuned!  We also made our meal plan for the week tonight.  We only have a handful of items on our grocery list for the week!  Woohoo!

We hope you have a great week!
