Jobs, Tasks, and Errands

June 20th, 2013 at 05:03 pm

I seem to be up to my ears in some jobs, tasks, and errands. This is NOT going to be the week where I lounge on the sofa and read. Lots of garden cleanup remains to be done, plenty of home fix-up jobs, and all the errands seem to be piling up.

I chatted with the bank teller yesterday about changing our joint account. Because DH is now officially over 50, we can get the same free checking with a free safety deposit box and some other misc perks. We had chatted about a safety deposit box anyway, so I suspect we'll change over. I need to get more potting soil, mulch, and spend a couple of hours in the garden.

Part of this is piling up because DH is still so tired from work. He comes home, eats, and falls asleep. I could really use a couple of hours with him at full force every evening to go over the painting and chimney bids with me, consider the bank and credit union options, and dejunk his closet. Maybe the week will go better? I think I mentioned in ceejay's comments that he saw his name pop up in an email during a presentation yesterday. He's worried about job stability yet again. Lots of stress on him, so perhaps I'll just make the decisions and plunge forward myself.

    I'm coming to the realization that I'm into some of this house stuff solo, too. Hopefully not for all of it, but DH is busy and stressed with work. And he has four weeks of traveling for work later this summer. That doesn't help!

    For financial choices, would you consider offering choices for discussion on SA forum? For garden muscle would you hire a high school student at minimum hourly wage who'd love earning cash? The caveat is that they need very specific instruction and a ton of supervision as most are willing but inexperienced workers. I too notice DH is stressed. He's going swimming two mornings a week to cope and were doing our best to keep things placid.
