In the wee hours of the morning, I was woken by a phone call from Jacob telling me that he needed a ride and that he thought he cracked his head open. Oh yeah, he did. Another emergency room visit, 4 staples in his scalp, and we got home about 4 a.m. He was riding his long board and wiped out. Did I mention that he doesn't wear a helmet?
Today I had to do one of my clients nails with red acrylic. Instead of a pink and white French manicure, she's got red tips. I didn't take a picture of it, so I took a picture of my colored acrylic set. I have to say that I really don't like the way the red looks, but she loves it.
Our wonderful view is pretty much a thing of the past. About the only thing I'm grateful for right now is that we don't own the house we're living in. When our lease is up, we will be moving somewhere closer to our kids' schools.
My sister Beverly came by after work tonight and brought me some old pictures to scan onto my computer. There were a bunch of my dad and mom from the days when they were dating. I'm glad to be able to preserve them in digital format.
On my way into work, the traffic was moving super slow. That's normal on days when I have morning clients, but this was at 10 a.m. and rush hour is over. Finally I got to see what was holding us up. Still not sure exactly what this is, but it had the highway patrol cars in front and in back with their lights flashing.
Guess how loud it is in my house with the second floor going up behind us? The sound of the guys hammering so early in the morning is getting on my nerves. I'm glad it's moving along so quickly so that I can have some peace and quiet again.
The construction going on right behind our house continues. The crews begin work about 5:30 in the morning. I'm not sure if they are breaking any sound ordinances by starting that early. If I weren't so lazy, I'd check and complain.
