There are quite a few things going on around here at the “Mansion”. We are hustling around this weekend to get ready. This weekend we need to take down the lights that are strung across the backyard. They need to be boxed up and put away so that they stay in good condition for all of the fabulous parties we’ll have next summer.
We also need to pull all of the plants out of the beautiful gardens so that they can be prepped for next season. We need to get the soil ready and then the planters need to be mulched.
We have some things that need to be taken to the attic and stored for another day and the perpetually messy garage needs some really good cleaning and organizing.
Why are we in such a rush to get all of these things done THIS weekend? My husband Jay has been suffering from a herniated disk in his neck for the past month. He’s had pain medication, he’s had physical therapy, he’s had a steroid epidural and he’s met with several specialists. As it comes down to it, he will be having a disk removal surgery on Monday morning. It is anticipated that he will be out of commission for just enough time to head out to California for two weeks of classroom training. We are also working against some other time sensitive factors.
So, as you can imagine I WANT THIS STUFF DONE NOW! I NEED this stuff done now!
