I went out to eat yesterday afternoon with Lisa and her parents. We had a great time, but the food and service were both horrible. It’s been years since we’ve gone to Macaroni Grill, and I don’t think I’ll be back again. The chicken was dry and very salty, and my lasagna was lukewarm and dry, and it just didn’t taste very good. I suggested a little family-owned Italian place that’s always good, but I was out-voted. I don’t think I’ll get much argument next time. Excellent focaccia bread doesn’t make up for terrible food.

I think this morning before it gets too hot Lisa and I are going to get some yard work done. All the plants need trimming, and that’s a pretty big job.

Having our house on the market is such a pain. I mean, we keep the yard and house well-maintained under normal conditions, but keeping it in “show condition” at all times is a whole new ball game. I just wish someone would hurry up and buy it so we can relax!

They broke ground on our new home one month ago, and construction has been coming along quite well. The outer walls, the load bearing interior walls, the second story, the stairs and the and roof have all been built, so the house is really starting to take form! I’ve been updating my new home construction journal (an upgraded forum membership is required) almost every day with tons of pictures, videos and descriptions. Keeping this journal has been fun and educational experience so far, and I’m glad I decided to do it. There are still 3 or 4 more months of work ahead, and with the number of pictures and video I’m taking I think I’m going to need another external hard drive before we’re done!

OK, I need to get out in the yard and get to work. The longer I put it off, the hotter it gets. Have a great day!
