I took Tuesday off of work and my mother and niece both went out to my property to help me. We moved cinder blocks and pavers out of the way so the excavator guy could work on leveling a pad for the shed. I put one of my old window air conditioners in a window and luckily it still worked because it was very hot. My mother cut up all of the cardboard boxes in the back room that I had been saving but don't really need. My niece went through the other room and made a pile to take to the thrift store. We filled up the truck with trash and recycling and brought it back to my house for the bulky trash pickup which is on Monday.

The excavator came back on Wednesday and worked all day. After work I went out to pay him ($1,500 for a day and a half) and I was able to drive my PT Cruiser up and down both roads to my property although I had to be careful because there were some large rocks in the road. Tomorrow I will walk the road and throw the big rocks off to the side. I have tomorrow off of work and my mother and I are going back out to continue cleaning and preparing for the shed delivery next week. I am treating the shed area with termite spray so that my new wooden building won't be a termite buffet, at least, not yet. When I think of all of the things that need to be done and how few weekends I have left before summer, I start to panic a little but I need to just keep working at it and it will all come together eventually.
