I wake up, early, but not super early, on average 6 am.
I don't like making lunch in the mornings but I know what happens around 10am if I don't have any, so most of the time I take a lunch to work.
During the school year my kids are waking up about the same time but I only have about a half hour to get through my routine to get to work, so mommy takes care for the most part.
I get into my Honda Civic and for the last 5 years, drive Almost one mile to work. Don't hate, I used to drive 22.3 miles to work the 5 years before that. Gas prices are still to high in my opinion.
Work is work and I do it from about 7-5 everyday. Building fences is much the same but has many challenges too. I also have build decks, covers, pergolas, trellis's, gates, steps, ramps, gazebos, swings, bridges, and retaining walls.
Mostly wood, a lot of vinyl, some composite, steel, iron, aluminum and field wire. I drive my work truck, with a 16 foot flat bed which gets 8 miles to the gallon. I don't pay for gas, thank God!
Everyday I work with people from my boss to my helper, people at my shop and my customers who I love to install fences for. They like me too, at least most of them ;)
After a 10-12 hour day of work I really need to unwind, but there is little time for that because the drive home is so short from the shop now. When I get home I usually get a greeting from my favorite little boy Lincoln who wants to play anything with me. Most of the time I want to fall on the floor because 10 hours of physical labor is a lot, but I find a way to play.
After dinner and some family time, about the time enterainment news comes on, I get on my laptop which I got less than a year ago so I can look at facebook. Sometimes I put on the head phones so I don't have to hear about the latest celebrity trainwreck and I can put some focus time into kids who fight for their lives and who deserve some real recognition on the Red Carpet Kids for the Cure page I created last September during childhood cancer awareness month.
If I still have time in the night I look at the rest of facebook while playing poker.
I am a night owl but not too late when work picks up during the season. I like to listen to music while writing on my blog and chatting with friends who seem to stay up late on facebook too.
The weekends are a nice change of pace when I can mow my lawn and spend time outside working on projects around my house. The kids play and sometimes help me build something but I like to keep things safe so I don't let them run around with the hammer and nails.
Now that my grapefruit is gone, and it wasn't too bad frozen, althought I don't know how it got that way, I will go mow my lawn and when Lincoln wakes up from a rest we will spend the rest of the night just hanging out as family.
I can't think of to many other details but I like it just the way it is and I feel bless by the Almighty God of Heaven and thank him for my family and all of my friends, especially those who take the time to read my blogs, THANKS!
