Thursday....

This has been a up and down week for us job wise.....but the good news is I think we will be busy very shortly.....we bid on 19 tract houses and from all indications, we won the bid.....it will be a big job re keying so many...and very profitable......these houses were all in a tract that went south about 2 years ago and have been sitting vacant since then...beautiful homes...the tract went to auction and a local real estate firm won....they've been selling them at below market prices with 100% financing...nice for lower income people to finally their own home.  Some of them have 6 bedrooms! We should be starting on them this next week or so..What I especially like is that the real estate firm is family owned and operated just as we are......everyone wins.......


Jayden was very sick this last week...it started out as a fever..so the kids took him to the doctor who thought it was a ear infection.....turned out he was wrong...after 3 days of fever, he broke out in a red rash....so it was back to the doctor who after tests, said it was Roseola...which I had never heard of...evidently its rather new....there is no cure or treatment other than keeping the fever down and letting the sickness run its course which is about 4 days or so.......it was a rough week for all of us with Jayden crying so much..he was very miserable.. He's fine now....and back to his sunny happy self.....

The kids decided to do something fun after such a grueling week....we have a small private pond here in the town with stocked fish....they decided to try their luck and did very well......Jayden had a good time too.
They caught about 5 nice sized trout...there are cat fish in there also....The pond is going to be closed soon as the lady who owns it is elderly and her husband passed away some time ago..she says its more than she wants to handle.

Thanks for everyone who has signed up for my giveaway......and if you haven't...please do!
