On Saturday Bob, from AquaVision, came and set up the drainer thingy to drain the pool. Here are some pictures!
Of course on Sunday it poured down rain all day!
By Monday morning it had stopped raining and the tile crew came. The took down the old tile and out up the new square ones around the pool and spa. I love the tile (I should…I picked it out!) and the dark grout they used.
Today they worked on getting the main part of the pool and spa ready for the pebble surfacing. The also patched up some holes. I am not sure what they will be doing next….But I can’t wait!
Panny keeping my computer bag warm.
Today I worked on cleaning up the screened in porch which was covered in pollen. This happens every year here in the ATL. It is a gross job but since it is pouring down rain today, is isn’t like I have anything better to do.
I really want new furniture in the screened in porch but I don’t want to pay for it. Story of my life! So I decided I would move things around to give it a “new” look. The Boy gave me some suggestions and after three wipe downs with water and lots of vacuuming, I think it turned out pretty nice!
Now if only the sun would come out!!
Saturday started with taking The Boy to guitar practice. I don’t think I haven’t ever seen his teacher, we will call him J, without a coffee cup in his hand. The guy must be jacked up! Anyway, he said The Boy was doing well. Next we hit Kroger to get drinks and candy for our movie date! We went to see The Croods.
As far as kid movies go, it wasn’t bad. I give it a solid B. The Boy and I’s favorite character was Belt. He was a sloth (we LOVE sloths) and was very cute.
The Boy waiting…
After the movie we got a quick lunch and then headed home. I decided that I would work on The Boy’s room. Sometimes it is just easier to do things by yourself. Plus, I got to throw away a lot of junk! Things I found in The Boy’s cabinets, boxes and under the bed: 5 pairs of PJ pants, 2 shirts, one dried apple core, 6 random socks, 8 wash cloths and much, much more! But the room is done!
The Boy changed the Bears clothes just for the picture.
Today I will be working on the screened in porch. It is cover in pollen, as are The Kids right now, who are rolling their furry little bodies in it…UGH.
The Boy & His Art
The Boy drew a cat for his schools art show. He titled it Puss n Boots. We will be hanging it up this weekend.

The Great Clean-Up of 2013
The following are some Before pictures of The Boy’s room. Over the past few months when he was told to clean up his room, he would just shove stuff into a corner, under his bed or in his closet. Well, Mom has had enough. He is about to be 8 years old and I told him he needed to start living like one. Tonight I worked on his closet and he worked on a few of his cabinets. One of them was full of shredded newspaper! It was like he was channeling his inner hamster or something.
Say Goodbye to the Broken Dresser!
Surfing the bed of stuff
We listened to the Avett Brothers, I drank some wine and he had a Throwback Pepsi (GROSS). There was no yelling or screaming. My Man will be proud!
