Well business is doing well, but the weather is not being cooperative. There has been nothing but rain, and just when it clears up and the ground dries up, it rains again. That makes it very difficult to pour concrete. Other then that, I have had a lot of new contracts for us and the spring and summer work looks to be really good this year. There is a lot of building and reconstruction going on. I am certainly glad we do a little bit of everything. It keeps us busy when everyone else is floundering.
I guess all of the sleep I got over the past few days as I was trying to kick the flu bug was more than enough. The problem with that is, I have to work tomorrow and can’t sleep now. I was looking forward to having energy and being on top of my game, but it looks like I am going to work tired anyway. Ah well, I I know for sure that I will sleep good tomorrow night. I am sure though that I will get a little sleep later, but for now I suppose I will do a little web surfing.
I will have to find a boring documentary to watch. That always puts me right to sleep. Then again, I can put on a really long movie with lots of music. The Lord of the Rings is really good for that. If I want to take a nap, I put that movie on. Don’t get me wrong, I love the LOTR trilogy, but it seems to have that effect om me. I think it may be the music in it or something. I am not sure, but it definitely works. Well wish me luck people, while I go do my surfing. Maybe I can find some good deals or something.
Well work is coming along well. The weather has been really good, even if it has been cold in the morning to start out the day. By the afternoon though, it warms up enough that even if we have to pour concrete there are no problems. All of my employees are looking forward to the annual Christmas party and the planning is well underway. They are going to be pleasantly surprised by the party this year, but I am not going to tell you what we are doing different. Some of my workers read my blog and I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag. It’s giong to be great!
I have spent the first half of my day picking up parts for equipment that is down. Since I have a full time mechanic to work on all of our heavy equipment, there are times I have to pick up stuff he needs if it cannot be delivered. It’s not a big deal though, because I have other errands that need to be done as well. I usually have one day of nothing but errands and end up driving all over town. It’s a good way to get rid of the cobwebs from work and such though, so I do not mind at all.
Ah, the bane of the work week. No one really likes Monday, unless they have it off and can sleep in. Everyone comes back to work dragging, no matter what they did on the weekend. I like to kid my employees about having too much fun over the weekend, but I know that some of them don’t drink or party and they look like everyone else. It helps to keep it fun on Monday’s, so that everyone wakes up and enjoys their day.
