Linda's Trip - Day 9

Day 9 - Sunday

Today continued with the work in the yard. It got too hot yesterday to finish so we all started early again. (Well, I slept in a few hours longer than they did!)

I was sent to Sutherland's to buy some things for the second day in a row. Yesterday wasn't too difficult if you ignore the incompetent lady about the seeds we needed to buy which she had absolutely no idea about.

Today, however, was an entirely different story! To make a long story short, one incompetent guy told me that fence posts didn't come in color (I was trying to explain which ones I needed) but they came in stain...uh, okay. So girls say color and guys say stain. Tomato, tomato *I am saying it two different ways* WHO CARES!! Then he proceeds to ask me if it is for the outside....ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? No, nincompoop, I am building a fence in my living room! What kind of question is that?!? Once the boards were loaded on my cart, I was hitting everything in the store trying to drive the non drivable four wheeled invention (which I might interject at this point, why do all carts in supermarkets and other stores ALWAYS have that one wacko wheel that doesn't work? It infuriates me!) to the register to pay. Oh, let me back up about 30 minutes. When I first got there, I tried to get 8 pave stones and couldn't reach but only one. I attempted to find someone or something that was breathing to help me which is how I ended up from the garden part to the lumber part which brings me back to checking out. I told the lady I needed 7 more pave stones. She said she would call someone and told me to drive to the gated area in the garden part. I followed her directions and proceeded to wait around 15 minutes at which point I went back in to inform her that no one had shown up. She said "Well, I called them and I don't know what else to do." Uh, call them again!!!!! Good grief! That didn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out! Needless to say, when I finally got out of there, I soooo was not planning another trip to wackoville anytime soon....at least until I got home and realized I had gotten the wrong color of pave stones! My blood was boiling now! Off to some other land again! This time, I left feeling in control and not wanting to beat someone's head in with the STAINED fence post!!!! Really, a fence inside???? I guess my long story didn't stay short did it? OOPS!!!

Carey, Bryan and my dad continued to finish the trenches and the backyard before it got hot again and before we headed back to OKC to take Bryan to the airport. Here are some pics of the work being done.

My hubby is hot in that big thing...
They are working so hard...
They even had me working...well, for a little bit...
Brenton shoveling dirt...
The brothers taking a little rest break...
Bryan and Dad laying the patio down...


Patio after...
West side before...

Backyard before...
Backyard after... Of course we had to take Bryan and Brenton to Meers on the way to the airport. We did our tradition and all ate cobbler before our meal. It was so good!!!! We are waiting in line, so here they are posing...

Thanks again Bryan for all of your hard work! We will never be able to repay you for all the things you did for us! We love you!

God Bless You!

Hey!!! I'm sooo proud of you Ash for your all the remembering to bring us ALL up to date. The naps helped I'm sure. Everyone worked so very hard over the weekend, you included, and I'm VERY proud of all you. Of course sweet Ashlee will continue to work on the yard this wk while Carey if in RI making heaven bigger. I am having Oklahoma withdrawal! Can you believe it! I actually miss the hot weather, the booms in the night, freezing during the day and getting to visit with Jodie. But most of all I miss C&A loving ALL THE TIME!!! God made such a PERFECT COUPLE.
Love you much & more MomML
