Pre-Bathroom Chores

I'm not sure what day the handyman is starting on our new bathroom but I made sure all of my laundry was done, even the dog laundry.  We will still have a washing machine if we move it to the back porch and use the hose to fill it up but we won't have a dryer.  I hope that he can hook up our new washer and dryer first thing.

That reminds me.  I need to clean out the cabinets and shelves in the laundry room tonight.  We should at least try to look prepared when he arrives.

I took my old cocker spaniel to get groomed.  I have a friend who gives him free haircuts.  That sure is nice. I hung out with my friends at the adoption event while I was waiting.  Most of them are burnt out and going to stop fostering.  That's too bad but new people always appear to take their places.  I cant believe I only have one foster dog at the moment.  That is so strange.

My HOA for my rental house sent me a weed notice.  All of the rains have made things grow around here.  I bought weed killer and pre-emergent granules and will go over there some time this week to fight the weeds. It doesn't help that the neighbors don't kill their weeds either so the seeds go everywhere.

I also decided to get more involved with my nephew's schooling so I will be meeting some of his teachers on Tuesday.  The school district has a website that lets the parents keep track of grades on a daily basis.  I finally got my mom signed up this week and it was obvious from his grades that he needed more supervision. Hopefully he will get used to this school soon and will be able to keep up with the amount of work they assign.  We are hoping that he does well so that he can stay at this school through high school.  We will see what happens.
