Keep on keepin' on

Life has started to fall into a very steady pattern lately. This is not necessarily a bad thing. I work, come home, work on the house, make dinner, work on the house some more, and go to bed. Except on the weekends. Friday I work pretty much from 7:30 a.m. until around 3:00 a.m. Saturday morning. I go home, sleep for a few hours and then work for another 10 or so. Sunday is pretty much recovery day. I typically end up getting out of bed between 1 and 3 in the afternoon and try to be lazy for the rest of the day because I know it is all going to start again on Monday. The good news, and main reason for this post is that we have finally rented our townhouse. Basically it is a contract for deed type rental. I get to spend a year playing land lord and hopefully at the end of this time we will close. This being said it means that I can now consider at least cutting back on my hours at the bar. Since I had been hoping to "retire" from bartending in January I guess this isn't as great as it could be but I would like to restock the cupboards and refill the coffers before I finally feel comfortable cutting back to one job. I am highly anticipating that day. Not only will I actually have a little free time but I will also have more time to finish stuff up around the house. I am now officially one room away from being done painting my main level and 3 rooms away from being done painting the top 2 floors. There are so many things I would like to do this summer on the outside of the house or in the yard, yet I really want to finish this painting up first. I figure I have been painting for pretty much 4 years solid with only minor breaks. Anyway, that is pretty much all for the moment. If all goes as normal I will probably get another post in here in a month or so. I will try to shoot for something sooner though.
