My BIL was to come after work around lunch time and I open the garage for him. I kept looking out but never saw him. I was working on the laptop and I heard a noise and the dogs took off. I let them out and look around the house and there was my husbands friend and he had the pump all hooked up. Trying to get him to let me do it so when he is not around I will know how is impossible. Then the electric cord I put out was burnt from the receptacle so I got another one. The the plug on the pump has been damaged a little too. We have to keep it pluggd in and unplug at the receptacle and when I tried to pull the plug out half of the receptacle came out. I am so frustrated with the electric in this house mainly the receptacles because when they put them in they didn't put them on big enough pieces of word and that is why they are falling apart. Then you pull the electric wires off the receptacles or loosen them and you have the plugs burn up.
He put another receptacle on and the one side has no support so I wanted to tape it with the real heavy silver tape and he didn't want to. I told him to humor me and I put 2 pieces on which are no where near the electric just on the outside holding the nail in. I am going to find some way to fix those areas so the receptacles stay put.
He left and I told him, thank you, and I checked the lawn mower and my BIL had come and put the deck up on it. I never heard him and the dogs don't bark at family or friends. I will have to call him and see what he did and what I owe him for the belt.
So now I have the pump fixed, 1 receptacle fixed, lawn mower and the pool with get open May 17th. Finish cleaning out the fruit bushes and cut the grass so everything is even.
I watched the race and I was going to go and cut some grass after but it ran late and it looks like rain so tomorrow it will get done. Problem this week 2 Pm I will have to get ready to get DGD every day and then back by 4 PM . But then I have to help with homework, snack and the entertain her mother so not much is going to get done this week until Friday when I don't have to do homework and I will be able to go outside and do something.
I went out in the outside freezer and brought in pork chops, hamburgers, hot dogs, twice baked potatoes, baked apples, deer meat and orange juice. So I will have several things different to eat this week coming. I had a rib eye and ate about 3 oz of it, 1/2 cup of asparagus, biscuit, and 1/2 a hash brown for dinner.
I ended with 4,473 steps last night 2.81 miles but no walking miles because I just wasn't going to push it. I will get things done and tomorrow I have to pick the strawberries before the birds eat them or I am going to have to put a net over them.
I checked the asparagus and nothing is up after I cut it all so maybe they will get a little bigger before they start again.
Time to stop and try and do some exercises with the weights and walking a little.
Have a blessed Sunday with the Lord and family. God bless you always my friends.
Catch you tomorrow see how many strawberries I get.
