I've already passed plumbing, electrical, mechanical, duct leakage, and framing inspections, and only lack energy, which I should have this week. Time to coast? Au contraire.
Bro is leaving for vacation in a week, so I will once again have to assume control of the empire. And between now and then I have several funerals to attend. My 96-year-old aunt passed away last Friday and the family visitation is today, with the funeral tomorrow.
And my 96-year old step-mom (my dad re-married in 1999, after my mom passed in 1994) is expected to pass any time now. I must go pay my respects.
Ironically, we've been asked to build a number of Assisted Living Facilities. (Note to self: DON'T call them "old folks homes"....very un-PC) My first reaction was "I'd rather not", but as my aunt, mom, and step-mom lived their last days there, maybe it would be a nice thing to do. Plus they're paying me, so....
Despite still not feeling 100% after my brush with death last week (food poisoning) I made it to grandson Parker's 5th birthday party on Saturday. I wish I could buy a few bottles of whatever vitamins these kids take:
Parker is in the blue shirt (top center), the girl wearing yellow shirt w/ hair bow is his sister Blakely, and the little girl exiting stage left is his cousin, my granddaughter Reese. The rest are teammates on various soccer/football/baseball teams.
Then later Saturday afternoon I saw the absolute best finish to a sporting event ever. My Northampton Saints defeated Saracens on the last play of overtime in the Aviva Premiership championship game (the Super Bowl of English rugby), 24-20. And even that required a video replay to confirm.
Pay attention American football players: THIS is how you tackle!
The game winner! WOW!
Oh well, so much for fun and games. Monday awaits. Have a good one. :)
