Father's Day Activities

Today was a nice day to be a father. I got to sleep in until 8:30, then Sweetheart made breakfast for me and the boys while I sipped on my morning coffee. I took Row to get his hair cut soon after the place opened, then came home and collected my things for the rent house renewal projects.

Mother-in-law watched the Doctor, so Sweetheart was able to finish the flower beds, and make a trip to the hardware store for a few more bags of mulch. The outside agriculture is 95% finished. I'll clear the back fence line, and chop two small trees down to finish it up. Maybe 2 hours work?

The inside of the house is moving right along. The concrete-stainers are a no go, so I'll have a vinyl flooring installed in the laundry room. It'll be cheaper in the long run, and my handyman can get it completed in two hours. The carport door area has been leveled, and the bamboo flooring in the kitchen has been extended to the living room area. It looks much nicer! Quarter round needs to be installed and I can mark it off the list.

I painted for five hours today, and that's about my limit. I tried to get by without having to repaint the ceiling, but my previous freestyle border painting says otherwise. There were spots here and there that had the old color in the ceiling area, and I couldn't just let it go. It has to look good.

I'll need to head over every day after or before work to make some good headway coming into the last weekend before my self imposed deadline of July 1st for the house being ready for the market. I'll post as I can....
