Weekend & Tea

Last week was a very busy week for us.  On Monday and Tuesday nights, we met one of my co-workers up at our lot to give him some wood.  We thought he was just going to cut the wood that was already in the pile and take that away, but instead he wanted to help us drop a few trees and cut them up (in exchange for the wood).  So we were up there cutting trees until 7:30 at night. 

Then on Friday night, we met my manager up at the lot for more wood.  He heats his entire house with wood, so he's up for "free" wood whenever he can get it.  So we were up there again until 7:30 at night.  Then Saturday morning, Rich and his dad went to the lot to cut down some trees and my co-worker AND manager went there, too, to get wood.  They dropped a tree that we weren't sure how to drop, so at least that's down on the ground now. 

As for me....on Saturday, instead of working on the lot, I had to do laundry and a bunch of errands because I'm traveling this week.  I also met a great friend for tea on Saturday.  We had a great time.  We didn't spend as much time there as last time, but we were still there for 2 hours and had a bunch to talk about.

This week, I'm down near NYC for a training class for work.  I'm hoping it will be good, but its a little nerve-wracking.  Its not that the class will be hard....its just that I don't really like traveling.  I like being home....plain and simple.  I'm sure the week will go by quickly and then I'll be happy to be home again.

Another bit of good news.....we ended the contract with our real estate agent earlier this month and put the house up for sale by ourselves.  We got a cheap "burner" phone at Walmart so that we didn't have to put our personal phone number up on the sign.  We had 15 flyers taken in the past week or so, and this morning we actually got a call!  Someone wants to come see the house tomorrow.  Rich will show the house since I'm not home, but we're pretty excited.  These people are retired and they have family in our area.  Plus, they don't need to sell their house in order to buy our no waiting! :-)

Anyway - I think I'm going to get ready for bed and read for a while.  There's not much else to do here.  Too bad I didn't think to bring some sewing with me to at least work on tonight.
