The best laid plans

I had wonderful plans for my son this weekend. What I just didn't take into consideration is that since he and his family arrived on Thursday evening and are leaving on Sunday morning, 2 days goes by really quickly! Yesterday we spent our day in Lancaster and Lebanon counties. Today they went to the Crayola Factory in Easton. That is about a 3 hour round trip driving time from my house. It takes about 3 hours to do the activities and see all that there is to see at Crayola. We are having dinner with my parents this evening so I have to cram a lot of Chad chores into about 3 hours. It is raining so the outside projects will not be attempted. I think the faucet in the bathroom has moved to the top of the priority list. Labeling the electric power box will be the only other thing that will get done. I wanted to hang the chandelier in the dining room but I really can do that soon as we figure out which switch in the panel box controls the fixture! (Silly me - I thought for the house to pass the electrical inspection the panel box would have to be labeled correctly!)

I would have gone to the Crayola Factory with the kids this morning except that I have pulled something in my back trying to wrestle a piece of furniture from the basement to the second floor. I am probably doing major damage to my stomach lining taking the number of ibuprofen tablets that I am but they do help. Now, because I am overcompensating for the pain on the right side of my back, the left side is cramping. Good grief!

Perhaps we need to find a "man" for that is handy with power tools, strong back and can follow a woman's you suppose that man can be located on the East coast?

If this is not the answer, get to feeling better so you can do most of the jobs yourself.

Rest up tomorrow - then another week of work.
