What Am I doing?
This week was pretty awesome. I was able to help my awesome mother-in-law re-roof her entire house. Don’t worry, I’ve got a post coming soon to give you the breakdown and cost savings on that project. We’ve also been doing a ton at church lately, as I mix the sound and Michelle is actually going to a Women’s conference this weekend. Which means it’s just me and the little one. At home. Alone.
Mwuahahaha! We’re going to have a BLAST! I’m excited for some daddy time with our little man, to teach him the ropes of life and talk to him about what it means to be a man. Or…we’ll just crawl around, drool on stuff and mess up the entire house! Either way, it’s gunna be a blast, and I’m pretty excited.
No Carnivals again this week. I need to get on this!
