Busy, Busy

Our weekend started off with dinner at our friends house.  And yes, I did wear my yoga pants.  It was wonderful and believe it or not, the weather was just dandy.  We were able to sit outside on the patio and enjoy good food, good wine and great conversation with friends.

The rest of the weekend was a complete blur.  A blur of how fast I could swipe my credit card for one more thing that needed to be replaced. 

First, came our printer.  We have been printing a lot lately.  Jeff just purchased a pool business to add on to the lawn business so that we can grow what we offer clients.  This means letters of explanation need to go to our current customers, and letters of introduction needed to go to our new customers.  Add in labels for soap, and you have a whole lot of printin' going on! 

Unless your printer decides to go on strike.  Which is exactly what ours did.  You want to print a couple of pages, no problem.  You want to print 175 pages?  Forget about it.  So, off to the office supply store we went.  I caved and bought a color laser printer.  And I have to admit, I was a giddy school girl again printing envelopes, and letters in a flash.  I will be a giddy school girl until I have to pay to replace the drums.  Then I will be a crying school girl.

We had to visit Verizon to get our phones updated.  Jeff is currently carrying 3 cell phones.  It is kind of crazy.  We needed to update one phone, which they informed us couldn't be done.  I'm not even going to get in to it here.  Lets just say that we spent 3 hours at the store and really got nothing accomplished.  But, they would call me on Monday.  Today is Tuesday, I have not received any call. 

Sunday we got up, and Jeff and Kyle went out to work on the yard and equipment to get ready for the week.  I was still updating customer information and rewriting letters.  Jeff came in around 1 and asked why I shut the air conditioning off in the soap shop. 

You guessed it, I didn't.  The air conditioner obviously decided it wasn't going to work anymore either.  So, off to Lowe's to replace our air conditioner.  They no longer make an air conditioner that fits the opening of the old one, so Jeff has to cut the space to be a tad bit larger.  As he and Kyle lifted it to position, Jeff went to plug it in, and the plug is different than the one we had.  Still no air in the shop.

On a final note, Happy Birthday today to my Mom!  And to my sister in law Stacey.  May you both enjoy your day and future days to come!
