it never stops....


man, lately i feel like its been all catch up with my blog and the world. last week was spent cleaning the house and working on the yard. fixing trailers, dirt bikes and the like. the weekend was a whirlwind and blew by like Katrina leaving me sitting on the couch with a blank stare and drool syruping down my cheek. Monday was a crazy day at work and got home exhausted. it was one of those days where i got home, sat on the couch and watched an entire lame movie. a really long lame movie. its all i had energy for....

today i came to work late, i needed to stay at the house to show a real estate editor around. she wanted to take pictures of our house and write a page long expose on our "newly built green home". she was nice and very excited about all the "green" shit around. "solar panels", "generator", "its own water source", etc. were all great buzz words she planned on using in her article. she took my name and cheeses as well. so i wont be telling you about where the article is listed on here. if you are that curious I'll tell you when it comes out and you can search around for it on-line...

other than that, this is my first break today. the dump bed on kw1 was inoperable this morning when i did make it to work and there were some fairly unhappy people because of that.

"i thought you fucking fixed it last week."

"i bet i get into that truck and it works for me..."

"lets see..."

sure as shit has a foul odor, i hopped in and fired it up and lifted the bed. i instantly could hear a problem in the system though... it was pumping air into the hydraulic tank somehow... i crawled underneath and removed the pumps shuttle valve assemblies and tore them down and rebuilt them. reinstalled them and it tested good, filled the reservoir back up and sent the driver on his way. why doesn't everyone understand how to do do this stuff???

other than that before i go home tonight I'm putting the new tires on the dirt bike and helping a buddy re-adjust the valves on his early eighties Toyota pick up. i should be putting the shock boots on the forks of my bike as well and while i got them apart i should be changing the fork oil and adjusting their pressures, we will see how much i get done on that.

cheeses car need to have the head light replaced, (again) and a new oxygen sensor installed. fucking check engine light has been coming off and on for months...


*mutters something to self about fucking Subaru's*


also need to putting the rest of the plants into the soil and removing the temporary green house i built for winter. we have eight different varieties of heirloom tomatoes that i need to find space in the garden for, and a cantaloupe and another squash that still need planting. we have cucumbers to plant and i want to have another watermelon this year, last years was fucking awesome. did i mention the fucking real estate people are coming back this Saturday!?!? so all the while trying to keep the house in show room condition and the kids room from exploding into the rest of the house with out stifling their creativity.

we need to cut down several more large trees and do the thing with all that again before summer sets in and the bugs are out in force. you will hear me bitching about that shit later in the year!!! (lucky you eh?)

my truck needs an oil change and i still have a porcelain coated header to put on it.(that's been sitting in a box for two years now!) tires need to be rotated badly and so do cheeses. the rear breaks started squallering this morning and I'm planning on going camping this weekend as well.

i need some time to get out of my head, house and day to day dealings. i want to hit jumps at forty miles an hour while barely in control... pound some beers and do it again! damn, I'm itching for it. perhaps at some point in there i can service the girlfriend too!! did i mention it is supposed to rain tonight?!?

anybody wanna help out this week, come on down!!! i make a wicked steak and usually have lots of alcohol around to nurse...

you, alcohol? NO!

What did she run into this time? Or do broken headlights just happen?

I tore my g.d. rotator cuff. I'm pissed.

INNER VOICES said...

she!! no worries!!!

shelaghayan said...

Muchas gracias!

(Also, seeing as I did it TWICE, I think might be able to blame it on the computer and not myself? Nah... probably not.)

MJ said...

Anyone wanna help out this week, you ask?

I'm sure Knudsen will volunteer to service your girlfriend.

Must be the teststerone in my body. I like the read. Curious as shit to know how all that stuff works. If it ain't broke take it down to see how it works. If you break it try and repair it.

Curious now as to which part you need help with...housekeeping, dirtbike riding, cutting down trees, planting the garden, servicing the girlfriend ( you left yourself open on that one) (( I know inappropriate but laughed my ass off at myself)).

Maybe someday I'll be on the door step. I like my steak rare hands dirty and beer cold. I promise to leave the girlfriend alone too.

Send me a link to the house. Pics too of what you guys have been up too.

I'm in the process of possibly digging a ditch...you get me drift. Thats one of the reasons I haven't been around too much.

Suzanne said...

I mentioned Cecile's discontent on my new post, but I certainly didn't expect her to come here and actually say it. Jeasus Christ! Okay. You're it! There are others, so don't feel singled out! She's an equal opportunity employer.

I wasn't bored. I know how life is. Complex. It's often good to just get things out in an attempt to make sense of them. Stop by the Cafe honey, I'll make you a nice hot cup of tea and rub your...










temples. (Well of course I'm laughing!)

Have a beautiful Wednesday. It's Wednesday? Right?
XO

I need to rotate my tires too, my car is pulling right and the tires are wearing wrong, then need to have a recalled ignition switch replaced before my steering column catches fire. Today I'm putting away groceries, doing dishes, laundry, and reading about police management in between. Then I'm going to make the beds (I like to air them out in the morning before I pull the covers up). Then I'm going to rearrange a food cupboard so that I have more room to store extra canned goods. I hate when there's nothing for dinner and I'm too tired to make it, so I like to keep tuna and baked beans and ramen just in case. Then I'm going to call a summer day camp upstate to enroll Hedgehog. I have to make sure that it doesn't interfere with the sports camp she's attending. Oh, and I must fit a shower in somewhere there. My hair needs conditioning. It really needs a trim too, but I won't have time for that until next week. I have to jot down a couple of things on a grocery list so that I can remember to buy a shitload of sugar so that I can make my candied lemon peels before the Meyer lemons lose their color. But unfortunately the pad I had hanging on the fridge seems to be used up. I must also remind myself to buy a magnetized pad. Then I'm packing a baggie of granola and picking Hedgehog up at school.

SEE PEOPLE! YOU'VE GOTTA FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE HERE!

I'm just kidding IV, your post wasn't this bad...

INNER VOICES said...

Random Chick said...
