Well this was a fun weekend to say the least. friday I got my paycheck to see a nice raise on it. apparently the owner seen it fit that on top of my regular hourly wage I also get a percentage of the work I do. then the wife calls me to say we are not going you know where, which I had no clue what she was talking about but went along with it. in stead her and her parents was going to home depot to pick up paint and sheving for my sons room. first thought was wow how did she know I got a raise followed by God I hope she don't pick some girley color. She gets home with enough shelving for the entire wall on one side of his room,and a very nice shade of blue. that gave me mixed emotions knowing now we have to pay a baby sitter, pay for my wife's college education(more teacher certifications) on top of juniors regular medicle visits. but she did pick a nice blue, and the room is not as cluttered. then i found out it was her parents idea and they paid, WHEW. so saturday rolls around work was slow so I had pleanty of energy to go shopping after work. when i got home after that and opened the door i was welcomed to the sight of every item in my kid's room in the living room. more mixed emotions of OH GOD SHE COULDN"T WAIT and THANK GOD I DIDN"T HAVE TO MOVE THAT CRAP. The room was also partially painted. all I had to do was take the shelf down that a student at the school she teaches at made,the other shelving,the aquarium,and the rack out of his room. I reset the aquarium in the kitchen,threw out the old shelf ,put the rack in the storage building. she then told me to take him to the park while she finished painting. when we got back i put the shelving on the walls(the kind with the rails you screw to the studs with the adjustable outriggers) and helped put everything back up. by the way this paint dried fast,I think it is baer paint. It was dry before we got home from the park and we was only gone for about an hour. then today she decided WE are going through every closet the storage room and the storage building and clean out all the crap we have accumulated. so we did and now the storage shed and room are nice an organized,the closets have more room,and we know exactly what he needs for school clothes.she tried to make me clean out my computor area, that is where i set my foot down. I told her no I know where everything is,I need everything that is there there, and NONE of it is garbage. Beleave it or not I actually won. All she said was ok but you better not make a mess of it.
After all that my jeep is loaded with stuff to go to the place for beat and battered women and children. the sell it and give the money to the shelter in town. We also have a truckload of worn out clothes,broken toys,and other garbage for the recyclers/garbage truck. The sad thing is she is already talking about what she is going to do next weekend. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />
