Check out the kid brother’s pirate costume! In our free time we put together some costumes at the end of last month, so this Sunday we went out to a boutique renaissance faire.
The week started off pretty slow, with another trip to TJ Maxx. I tell you, it’s dangerous to send a female to work at TJ Maxx. I hadn’t been in the store for 10 minutes and I had already mentally spent $100! Thankfully (or unfortunately if you are TJ Maxx) the part that the manager said had delivered…was actually the empty box from my install two weeks ago, so I fled TJ Maxx with my budget in-tact.
Tuesday was a day off, if you call driving to Houston for a family funeral a “day off”. Wednesday I drove two hours west of town to work at a truck stop at 10am. On the way home, I got a call to drive two hours south to work at a truck stop at 10 PM! So, as the sun began to set I rolled out on my night-time trek. 200 miles later, I arrived at my destination, put four wheels on a metal plate, sat two servers atop the plate, got back in my car and drove away. Total time on site? 30 minutes. Have I mentioned that I love my job?
Thursday was a recycle day. People don’t know much money there is to be made in recycling. Friday, dad and I went out to repair a 170lb television. The actual repair was nothing, but getting back onto the stand was the tricky part.
I’m starting to feel bad for all these guys trying to teach us things on Zoom. It feels like every time we talk to them it’s “We promise we’ll be in the office next week. Sorry! We’ve got to run!” We’re a hard team to pin down.
