Employment Confirmed

I received my confirmation email from the elementary school I will be working at today.  Report for work August 10th, which is a Friday. School starts on the following Monday.  I am feeling pretty good about the job, and am looking forward to getting back into a routine.

There are a few projects that are going on around here at the house.  We have decided to stay here and not look for another house with all the bells and whistles that we have always wanted.  Nope, we are going to move forward and add the bells and whistles to our current home.

First, we are fencing in our backyard for privacy.  The contract has been signed, a deposit has been made and they are scheduled to be here today to begin the installation.  We have removed shrubs and small trees from the fence line, I think we have been to the landfill at least 20 times.  I am super excited about the fence!

With the new job starting, I have been motivated to get "things" done.  The "things" that are getting done are going through that stack of mail sitting on the counter, order refills of RX's, calling CC to straighten out a couple of auto bill issues. Scheduling appointments for an oil change, a phone chat with our financial advisor, and next on the list is to get new glasses so I need to call Target and get that set up.

After this fence install, we are going to paint the house.  We already bought the paint at The Home Depot during their July 4th sale/rebate offer.  It is hot as balls out, but we will tackle a section of the house at a time.  Of course, we would like to get it done before I go back to work.  Fingers crossed!

Hope you are doing fantastic!
