i have a secret. i know i complain about working super on this job around my office for the last three weeks but to tell you the truth, it makes me happier than i ever expected. every morning i get up at quarter to five, i get to the site at 6, my guys start work at 6:30, i do what i gotta do, i finally get to go back to the office around 3:30-4, finish paperwork, and I'm on my way home again at 5pm. i don't get overtime for the 20+ hours a week that i devote to this thing but ..... blog, i love it. don't tell anyone. ;)

Overall the last "week-o-vacation" was wonderful. yea.

I had to be at work at 5:30am last Friday which was crappy considering Friday was my first vacation day scheduled and we'd planned on biking all day....but I'm over it. After we finally got settled into the campsite by 4 that afternoon, we decided to cancel the ride and just chill out with a couple of beers. ... That is until Jackie decided to do something stupid and go riding for an hour anyway. This photo is going in the file marked "things to teach our kids not to do" :

It's been a long time since I've had to deal with a bruise like that but I definitely deserve it for doin sand...late myself. I didn't break my bike though - that makes me happy.

Anyhoo, so after canoeing all day Saturday and biking at half strength on Sunday, we headed over to the cottage for a couple of days. Turns out the weather was fantastic which made for a very relaxing 3 days. .....That is, until I burned the bejesus out of the back of my legs. I only take half the blame for that though -- of all the days in August that the guys could powerwash and seal the deck, it just happened to be the days we're there. So when the guy came at 4pm Tuesday to work, we had to wait to walk on the deck for 3+ hours while the sealer cured. My spf 45 apparently didn't want to last that long.

The whole thing would've been fine if we knew he was coming or how long it was going to take him to finish but I don't think he expected us to be there so he never called. Oh well I guess. Here's a photo of the beach from the deck. Enjoy.
