Finish paying off school taxes. Have been having issues with their forms on line and have had to ask for help.
Will meet with GI/Surgeon to talk over surgery. Small intestine has a 5 cm (about 2 inches for those of us that don't do metric ME) that has collapsed.... I have no clue of why my system is working at all then.
The left to do with spring cleaning :
In kitchen.... spice cabinet and dry goods "book" shelf. Ceiling, walls, baseboard and floor.
Neither bathroom has been touched but the bedroom is also down to ceiling, walls, baseboard and floor AND changing bedding to warm weather.
Daughter 4 has bartered for gas money, a ham and a turkey to come up to finish what ever spring cleaning I don't get done by the 12th. Including the entire house, not just the areas I want focused on. I might send home bread also with her. We live 90 mins away from her so she offered 7 hrs of work and 3 for drive time. That makes it the same as if she went to work and keeps her 5 dogs on their routine.
Hubby's is no longer working with the state so he is able to start helping at home and working on the things he didn't get done on the house or his own items he wanted to do.
Hubby's April's goals
win bid for livestock trailer April 6th
has an auction to take Amish to April 13th and then found out 2 things we are looking for are at that auction so it's no longer a "job" but car pooling. Amish are paying for the cost to go, everyone is responsible for their food and drink.
gardens put in, tilled , weed barrier etc for me to plant
gravel in for deck and driveway
deck on at French doors
straighten the fence (including E's that is attached to our fence) at the road
move the compost pile to the gardens
put the grill together and put on front porch until deck is built
put smoker together and put on front porch until deck is built
change the down spout on barn
replace board over cistern
put more concrete on deadman on clothesline in yard.
Rehang the Jack Daniels coat rack he accidentally pulled down. I would like to change where it hangs and hang a secondary one as he hangs his heavy work bibs and carhart coats on the rack.
