In the spirit of not being fake news, and just so we can look back one day and read this, not all is always perfect. Last night both boys had fits and were pissed off at us for calling them out on everything from school to spending money that they don’t have. Sometimes we complain or bitch about their total lack of cleaning anything around the house but that wasn’t the case last night. Yes they’re good boys but they do little to nothing around the house. Yes they don’t vape or do drugs, but they often act entitled and expect things they don’t earn. Yes, they’re super respectful and nice in public but at home can have mouths like a truck driver. So there, just a little insight to when things aren’t perfect around here as we want to be fair and balanced.
As for Lori, she and I disagree often about how to discipline the boys. I think she usually gives in to them and she thinks I have terrible timing on when to bring things up, which I do. Anyhow those two little (or big) shits can ruin a morning or evening within a matter of seconds. Each morning starts with us having to get up, feed both dogs, usually pick up dog crap and then walk them, all before making coffee. Then it’s the mighty struggle to wake the boys. They could sleep through World War III if we let them. It seems every morning we’re rushing to get out the door and we’re usually late. Throw in the mess that the boys, (they both do it) leave all over the kitchen from coming down or up in the middle of the night to eat, and mornings are not the most fun. So there’s a glimpse into reality in around here just to be fair.
Now to some good news, we did close on our construction loan yesterday. We had the notary come meet us at Lori’s work and signed in a matter of 20 minutes or so. Today all permits will be filed and we should be breaking ground in about 10 days if not before. We’re super excited as this will be a huge and hopefully fun project. It’s been a lot of work so far and as I told Lori, it’s going to go fast and we’ll have to make a lot of decisions quickly to stay on track. We did find out we have a $10,000 to $15,000 assessment on our town home to fix the roofs as the Association doesn’t have the money, nice. Anyhow we can’t do anything about it so it is what it is.
Time to help Lori get the boys moving as it’s 6:45. We had a little dusting of snow last night, less than an inch and it didn’t stick to the pavement. It’ll be gone by tomorrow. Have a great day and God Bless.
