Fill'er Up


The crazy wind was still rocking the house yesterday but The Mister was still determined to get that dumpster loaded even though we have it until Monday. In spite of having had to sleep in the lower level, he was raring to go before the sun came up. I am not kidding when I say he slept in the dog's bed on the floor all night. I slept on the little love seat we bought for Pup. He tried to sleep in his recliner but it hurt his hip so I woke up at 4 am to find him on the floor on the dog's bed which he swears was comfortable.

I did not want to go out there with that wind under those trees but nothing stops him when he has his mind made up so out I went. It took us just a few hours to get the piles we had in the driveway and in the backyard gone, gone, gone. We'll clean up the cinder blocks and the pallet that we had everything piled on when that wind dies down.  

I even got my fleece shed cleaned out. It was jammed packed full odds and ends leftover from whatever job we were working on. I'm not planning on buying any fleece anytime soon but you never know. The MDSW is just a few weeks away now but The Mister's surgery is just two weeks before that so who knows if I'll get there again this year. If I don't it will be the fifth year in a row of not getting there for one reason or another and that is just so very sad. 


  1. I'm glad you got so much done and without incident! The cleaned out look will encourage you very much!

  2. WOW! You two have been busy. Very impressive. It is sad that you've missed the festival for so long. I wish I were there to drag you to it. I've always wanted to go. I still have the brochure from it that you sent me years ago.
    Blessings and hugs,

  3. The Mister sounds like Dave. Once they get an idea in their head, there's no stopping them! It comes in handy sometimes, but others it's just a pain!

    I swear, I never knew how cool a dumpster was until we got one to deal with all the stuff we ripped out before we officially moved in. It saved us so many trips to the dump with our little trailer. It was worth every penny!
