As a Phoenix Rising declares 2014 to be The Year of Yes (please) .
a jack of all trades guy I met through the work fall football night may help out here. He substitutes doing just about everything but bus driving (And is working on being able to do that) in several districts in the county, is a roadie for bands that come play in the county, does labor for the hot air balloon company in north county. I met him again this spring when I dropped off a signed contract and hiring paperwork at a recruiters house before I left on vacation and he was hanging curtain rods. With memories of woody woodpecker having been at my own curtain rod hanging attempts I inquired within.
Today he came round to take a look at all the ways I need a second, stronger person to help me. Get down boxes that are up high so I can empty them. Rearrange the garage and bring everything from Mom’s storage unit and fit it in the garage and house so I can stop paying for that storage unit. Stuff like that.
I’ve figured out when I need to call in professionals (back yard pathway concrete or pavers, etc.) and when I don’t.
I don’t know how often he’ll be available, but I’m ready to focus on the house. I’ve been away almost four months. I’ll spend the next four or fice months home working on the house. Seems fair.
