Today is payroll processing day. So far it's going smoothly. I hope so because after yesterday my brain doesn't seem to be able to handle a lot of figuring out, LOL. I had to do our monthly state excise tax return for the company and I think it took me 3x as long to figure out. I was just not getting it and getting frustrated. My brain just didn't want to pull the right numbers and figure it all out.
DH is getting fall yard maintenance done. And it was time to order more of the stuff he uses. We were out of the bug spray he uses, mostly around the base of the outside of the buildings. It's a concentrate quart bottle and does last quite a long time. Then I had to order the annual 2 bags of casoron weed killer for the gravel areas. That crap is expensive! I hate ordering it, but it works and since I know we use it every year, it's in the budget. He also decided he wants a few more bags of the grub killer we tried earlier this summer. We got it at Lowe's, but neither of us feel like driving into the city. I checked to see if they would ship and they don't, but Home Depot has the same thing and they will ship for free, so I ordered a few bags from there. It's also time to flush the 2 tankless water heaters, which he uses vinegar to do, so I ordered 7 gallons of that to ship from Walmart. All of it should be here by the end of the week.
Ok, so an update on DAN. We cannot figure it out, haha, but I'm sure that's how he wants it. So, he and his wife were there most of Sunday, bumbling around on one of his pieces of equipment. Then yesterday the sanican company shows up and take the sanican away. He must not be planning any more "work" on the lots for now, then. Last week a pickup came in and parked in front of his lots for about 5-10 minutes and then left. Then yesterday after the sanican was picked up another work type pickup with a construction trailer behind it (it had a construction/builder's logo it) came and parked in front of his lots for 10 minutes or so and left.
Wondering what all this means....we have different theories, but none quite make sense. Mind you, they still have not had a well dug now after owing these lots for 2 years. I said well, maybe now that his other house is back on the market, he's assuming it's going to sell and has contacted some builders to get quotes....but that doesn't make sense either, because you'd be here when they came - to walk the property (we did that with a couple of builders), figure things out, answer questions, etc. Neither of these guys in the work trucks even got out of their trucks.
DH thinks he's trying to sell the lots by contacting some developers/builders directly and they are just coming out to stop by and see where the property is/what the neighborhood is. He says for just that, they'd very likely not even get out of their trucks.
But anyway, with winter around the corner, there won't be anything more going on there for a good 6 months now, at least.
I can't even imagine trying to buy a house right now - with what the interest rates are! Unless you could pay cash for a house, I wouldn't even consider getting a mortgage right now. Nor would I consider selling and giving up my low mortgage rate. It's interesting times, to be sure.
