Vacation

SH is on vacation this week. Vacation is quickly turning into working yourself to death week. It seems everyone needs SH this week. Yesterday he spent 10 hours weedeating and mowing around his families church and cemetery, in 100 degree heat. I didn't go out there at 6AM like he did so I stayed here and napped and met him later. While I was here the little old ladies started calling. We haven't let them know he is on vacation, but they knew it was Monday and that it his normal day off. They also have talked among themselves over the weekend and learned he was finished little old lady #1's odd jobs and they knew he may have a little time. I don't really get vacations so I am planning on taking a few days off this week, though I may be spending them alone. We were planning on camping this week but we can't seem to fit in a few days away right now................

Do not answer the phone. Quick! Pack up the truck and leave town!

WHO ARE THESE LITTLE OLD LADIES ANYWAY, AND WHY ARE THEIR HOUSES IN SUCH SHAMBLES???? Listen to Monkling; she knows what she's talking about! Or else...you could call SH's cell phone, pretending to be a "new" little old lady who is in bad need of some "fixing" that he needs to get to right away, then you could ravage him, and while he's still dazed and confused, whisk him into the vehicle and zoom off...I missed you and Monkling, but had a GREAT, WONDERFUL, RELAXING, DID-I-ALREADY-SAY-WONDERFUL WEEKEND. You guys NEED to get away...

I like your idea Kim, and so would SH. These ladies houses are in great shape. There are just the few normal fixups that happen with houses and then there are those that aren't important that they think they will die if they don't get done right now. New Garage door because the other one is getting a little old. New gutters because the others have a few stains. Paint the garage because it looks a little dull and you can't have that if the garden club is coming over....
Most of the work is in the rental houses that are old and in bad shape.
