What I'm Reading This Week #36

Happy Friday to you!  I am so ready for the weekend.  I'm sure it'll be filled with doing some "have to do's," but I would like to get the heck outta the house as well at some point.  The jerkwads canceled the driveway sealing for the THIRD time with no reason given, meaning we rescheduled the window installation for nothing.  Speaking of which, I finally got to go out back and look at the slider from the outside and was horrified.  The caulking job the guy did was atrocious, and I have zero problems telling them that on the customer service survey when we get it.  I know they had some crap to work with from the previous botched job but smooth it out for God's sake!  I painted it, so it's not quite as heinous as when I went out but still.  They come out Wednesday to take the screen door to re-screen it the right way.  I'm sure because it's us, they'll hang onto it for longer than most people have to wait especially since we're starting a streak of cooler weather. 

But enough of our string of home projects shenanigans...let's get to...

I really wanted to go to this one lake this weekend to paddle since the weather will be impeccable but its the last weekend the Mr has to study for this first test so womp womp.  I'm sure we'll find something to do to enjoy the weather for a little bit.

Anything planned for the weekend?

  1. Another short week that felt really long to me but glad Friday is here and I need the break. Not happy hearing that I'm missing out on paddling due to this stupid test I have to take but unfortunately this is my last weekend to do some real studying - though I do have to get out of the house for a bit and I am gunning for one of those Krispy Kreme pumpkin spice cream cheese filled donuts on my cheat day! Have a great weekend everybody!

  2. Happy Friday. Happy to report no plans!
    Have a great weekend!

  3. I have an appt today with the hubs, and then we both have dental appts tomorrow morning. Grocery shopping will probably be Sunday, and in between cleaning and more decluttering will be football. =o) Have a great weekend!

  4. Dumpster being delivered today for house clean-out....hoping that the Red Sox/Yankees games don't get rained out since Dorian is making a pass by us...and cheering on the Pats Sunday night!!! Have a great weekend - and that Krispy Kreme donut sounds amazing!
