Happy Friday! Today was a relaxing day....Grace, Lauren, and Taylor came over again to hang out and keep us company while the landscaper busily worked on our yard. We ordered CPK delivery for lunch and spent the whole afternoon just chillin' and playing with the kiddies. Every now and then, Grace and I would go outside to check on the progress of the side and back yard.

Today was a super hot day....and just standing out in the sun for a short while was pretty miserable. I was amazed by the landscaper (and his two workers) for working in such grueling conditions all afternoon. I was also a bit concerned and gave them cold drinks every so often. Wouldn't want anybody keeling over on my property due to heat-stroke, ya know? =P

By 4:30pm, they were finished for the day. The side and back yard looks pretty good. Hopefully it'll meet the Association's standards and finally put a stop to those annoying (and ambiguous) complaint letters. *cross fingers*
The landscape-guy will be returning next Tuesday to finish the job.

Tonight, Aric, Ashlyn, and I spent a nice quiet evening at home. We watched "Star Wars: Attack of the Clones" on HBO, gave Ashlyn a bath, then put her to bed early. Ashlyn's been getting up earlier nowadays, so her bedtime is slowly shifting to an earlier time. I kinda like it since it allows Aric and I to have some time to ourselves afterwards AND get to bed a bit earlier.

*YAWN!* I'm tired. The pounding headache from Wednesday still lingers. It might be a pinched nerve or something....my traps (trapezius) are really stiff. *sigh* I could really use a massage right now. Maybe I'll go get one this weekend. =)

Have a great weekend, yo! G'Nite!
