DD had to put their dog down yesterday. So sad. He was only 9 years old and no clue why he suddenly got sick. They were the 3rd pawrents to this pooch. The first people had kids or something and weren't treating him right. The second owner was an older lady with another dog and he didn't get along with. One of the two previous owners (1st, I think) was using his feeding/food as a punishment. He was a hard dog to love at first, but dd and sil never gave up on him and gave him a good 4 years with love and patience.
I'm back to work this morning. Working my way through a week's worth of emails. I'm up to Wednesday morning, so far. And just realized my boss is off all this week. I did not know that. She never tells me, LOL. She also rarely takes that much time off at once, so I'm glad to see that she did. It should be a little quieter week for me, then, haha.
Still no real clue why the guy with the lots next door needed a sanican delivered a week and a half ago. No one has been there to work on his property. Who knows...
Contractors are still the worst! Even worse then when we were needing to use a lot of them for our house build. The guy that did our fence? Dh has been trying to get him back here for a small job since LAST summer. Then a week or so ago our UPS guy said he has a local cousin who does fencing, call him. So, dh called him. Finally the guy texted back and then never came out. Then texted again and never came out. Then he texted dh this morning that he'd like to come this afternoon (this is just to find out what dh needs done/quote us) so dh called him right back. No answer. Dh then texted him to please call him so he can tell him about our access (due to the neighbors resealing the first part of our street) to get in here. No reply. And now we haven't heard back from the guy we did hire to do our resealing....so no clue still when he plans to do it. Granted, until today, the weather hasn't been good enough and of course he can't do it today or tomorrow (due to the other company doing neighbors), plus it's supposed to rain again starting on Wednesday for 6 days....Obviously the guy would be watching the weather report, but dh is also the type that just won't call him (like I would!) and say hey, just wondering when you tentatively think you'll be out now?
So between that and all the other little things going on dh has become a ball of stress. He stressing out about things that aren't even happening, and likely won't happen. Which of course doesn't help his health and how he feels on a daily basis.
Yesterday I got the 2 wine barrels stained. We used one of them at the corner of the shop for the rain downspout to go into. The other one we covered up our well casing and then dh attached our old antique water pump to the top. We still need to do something to make our water spigot white pipe look nicer, too. I'll probably just try painting it like a tan or gray color.
