Hi Guys! How was everyone's weekend? Mine was pretty darn good! I mean I didn't get any yard work done like I (loosely) planned to, but I'm thinking next weekend I'll tackle something.
I've been watching lots of home improvement videos. Landscaping mostly. Tilling, gravel laying, landscape arrangements. It's definitely motivating. Now I just need to plan the time for it and buy my tools during the week. I'll have to rent a roto-tiller, which means I have to borrow a truck. I'll have to figure out how to get it on and off the truck cuz no way can I carry that heavy shit by myself... we'll see how this week unravels, but I want to get it done before the rain comes. At least get something started, ya know? I'll be making a list of everything I need to buy this week.
I also want to slowly start upgrading my front yard. I'm not crazy about some of the plants and the whole yard is covered in bark because we had to since California's drought and all. I figure if I do a little bit at a time I can achieve the look I want without straining my budget. Those videos are definitely giving me confidence because then I don't have to ask someone else to show me what to do. You know? I love not relying on others to schedule me in to their available time.
Other than that I went to a BBQ at my friend Tiffany's. That was okay, but Tiffany's husband and my boyfriend have like nothing in common lol. He's a cop, my boyfriend is into smoking weed and he's done some illegal drugs off and on (not a whole variety, more like E or molly or shrooms) and my boyfriend's artistic, while her husband is more mechanical. It was still nice, but I don't think we'll be having outings with them or anything. The food was great!
The repair guy came on Saturday and filled the whole in the wall from my last ex (eyeroll) and he'll be coming back tonight to do the rest and paint it. He's also taking my screen door that I've had sitting in my garage for a year to get it powdered coated so it doesn't look all ghetto and then he'll bring it back and put it on for me. I'm excited to get things done to my house finally. I want to paint at least 1 or 2 rooms before year end as well. It's gonna slowly come around, but slow is better than no movement!
Plus! I'm going to try not to smoke again till at least thursday. Goals goals goals. I love it. Okay, that is all for now. I might write another blog later if I have time, but for now I need to go back to work. Hasta!!
