Well, the construction loan paperwork has been signed. I am still a bit amazed how easy their paperwork process was. I've never had a loan that easy to process. We met the banker lady at a branch in the city, got all signed, and then we had another guy open up a new checking account for us. While it's not 100% convenient to bank in the city - at least we now have a bank in the same state! LOL. I need to get online with them this morning and get my online banking set up. I'm going to wait until I get the debit card in the mail before I have my paycheck direct deposited there. I need to be able to have access to the money as soon as I deposit it.
After we left the bank we went to Staples to pick up a few office supplies. I'm like oh hey, while I'm here, lets get me an new office chair (that I am being reimbursed for). So I sat in every chair like Goldilocks. I finally decided on this one. It's really comfortable, especially for back support.
And looks so much better than my old chair
We got back home and put away the groceries and then headed back out to the property to see how the guy was coming along with the rockery. He was able to hire a helper guy, since DH couldn't be there yesterday. Every time we drive down the main street through town DH comments on this old Ford pickup some guy has parked on the side of the street, that DH just loves. Well, turns out it was that helper guy's truck. So, DH told him if he ever decides to sell it, let him know. LOL. Really nice guy, very friendly and chatty. Sure saved DH some sore muscles having him do the work. Worth the $15 an hour.
The guys were working away and also were able to get one of our huge brush piles burned down all day. This month and next month we don't need a burn permit. While they were working DH and I walked around the brush pile and picked up branches and sticks to throw onto it. Cleaned up the area quite a bit. But OH MY BACK! too much bending over.
On the drive to the city I heard a radio advertisement for a home and garden show in the city this weekend. I said we should go to that. It's free admission with a canned food donation. That will be 3 trips to the city in one week. Eek. We'll see if we feel like going to it when the weekend gets here.
