Public Incentive

I figure if I feel like I have to justify myself on Monday, it might provide some impetus.  This weeked I would like us to:

* Take the damn snow tires off the car.

* Spray the mountain laurels.  Okay, I don't *want* to, but we've come to far to stop now.

* Test the paint stripper on the back deck.  Just a test swatch.  Okay, a big test swatch probably, but a test swatch.

* Cut down the pine tree.  I'll lose my nerve again if we don't do it soon.

* Rake the leaf litter off of a little bit of the frontage.

* Try to move a big rock for a wood pile anchor.

* Check to see how off level the garage doors are.

Somewhere in there the old bookcases are hopefully going away, and somewhere in there I need to clean up my house for NEXT weekend, which is going to be disastrously busy.  I also have to make sure that Bob has time to do some work on the archery backstop frame.  If he can work on that and watch Charlotte at the same time, he can probably do it while I'm spraying the laurels - that's always good for a few hours of me not asking for anything.  There's a company function sandwiched in on Saturday, and the weather of course is the wild card.

That sounds a little easier and more restful than the way mine is shaping up. I'm expecting house cleaning, trying to finish prepping my garden beds and planting (if the weather allows), and prepping for the next two budget sessions (Monday and Wednesday, and we're already behind schedule after only two sessions). It's going to be *insanely* contentious, since Wednesday we are voting on the school board budget, and I think we're going to manage to NOT give them their 3% increase. The whole schools and money mess is spectacular, and way too long for even one good blog post. The short version is the BOE is mad at the town since we voted down their $133M plan for new schools, and they are trying to make us sorry. I think they are going to lose. I forgot to ask James to get me some Kahlua, or perhaps just some vodka. I suspect I'll need to take a hip flask with me to keep me sane.

I really need to make sure there is some sleep in there. So should you. Sometimes that really is the most important thing.

Right - we need to do that too...
