Fun Filled Weekend!

Well, after we clean the house tonight we are going to be ready to have company over on Saturday. We are having a mini kiddy fair with a small petting zoo, chickens, movie on the barn, and grilling food on our fire pit! I can't wait!!!

The Steam Team

It is hard to find a good cleaning and restoration company. There are so many out there that claim to be legit but when you use their services, they are horrible! It is almost like they bought a steamer and said they were a cleaning business! Well, that isn't the case with The Steam Team! They are great at what they do and can clean anything from restoring furniture due to smoke or fire to simply helping clean your house before you have company!

The Steam Team is the best commercial upholstery cleaning austin business, period! They will not disappoint and are easy to contact. Visit their site and check out all of the options they have for helping you with those pesky needs that you just can't do with your vacuum and household cleaners! Don't worry, there is no pressure, if you prefer, you can simply go to their site and get a quick quote without having to worry about a salesman pressuring you. If you like what you see, then place your order online! It is truly as easy as that!

So, what are you waiting for? If you are like most people, your home could desperately use the attention of The Steam Team!

Doing Well So Far...

Well, I am doing well in my Fantasy Football Leagues again this year. I won a couple last year and am getting lucky again. I have found it is all about who you pick up from the waiver wire or free agency that make a difference. Last year I snagged Michael Vick in a couple leagues and it ended up making the difference. This year I have picked up a couple sleepers who have helped me. Although, I wish I would have gotten Cam Newton. Someone else had a lower waiver wire priority and got him before I could. Dang!

Bring back the NBA!

I love the NFL, but I am very sad the NBA hasn't reached a deal yet! I hope there is a season and that the Mavericks can defend their championship! As much as I love other sports, there just isn't anything that compares to the NBA, in my opinion. I think they are losing fans by the minute though, with all the fighting back and forth and not reaching a deal. NO ONE feels sorry for the players or owners. They are all millionaires (or billionaires), so stop being greedy and make a deal!

Great Deals!

It's about that time of year! What time am I talking about? The time to get great deals on clearance items at great retail shops and stores. Specifically, boys clothes clearance items! If you want great deals on them, Aeropostale has you covered! If you haven't been to their site before, jump on over and check them out. Their site is easy to navigate and they offer clothes for everyone in the family, at great prices! The boys clothes have teamed up with a company to bring in a super hero collection. Talk about the cutest boy clothes ever! You can get next seasons clothes or look for clearance items that will fit your son or maybe another boy you know that has a birthday coming up.

Besides being very reasonable, they have great quality clothing that fits well. I am sure you won't have a problem finding something that you just can't live without. I'm also sure with the deals they have, items won't last long, so it is probably a good idea to get over there soon.

Back to work

Today will be nice. I have been out of my office for the past 3 days traveling. It will be nice to be in the office and just be able to get work done and spend time with my co-workers. I do love the traveling portion of my position but it is draining having to be in a car so much. It refreshes me to get back and take things slow for a bit before I head out on the next trip! Not to mention, work seems to pile up when I'm not here :)

Backing up your stuff!

I was listening to the radio this morning and heard them talking about this site that you can pay a subscription to and it will backup everything on your computer. Sounds very helpful! I also heard information on document management software and other neat new offerings that can help make our lives more efficient. Although, that just means we would fill that time with more stuff and make us even busier than we already are. Maybe I need to stop keeping up with technology and take a step back and slow down!


Today when I was working off campus I got into discussing iPads with one of the guys I met there. He then pulls out this tiny little laptop which was almost smaller than the iPad. I couldn't believe it. I guess it's like one of those hp mini laptops or something like that. Technology is getting crazy! I can't keep up! Help me someone, please!!!!!

Competition in the Office

So, no one in our office is very athletic, but that doesn't stop us from talking a little trash. Last year we were in a campus wide basketball tournament and did okay. The others in our office challenged us to a game and we even went as far as trying to create a trophy. You know, like a real one, like cheerleading trophies and other cool trophies you may have seen before. I just hope no one gets hurt out there on the court! ha

Farm Life

How much fun has the last year been? I can't believe it has been this long already! We have started so many projects and still have a lot left, but I am having a blast with all of them! I have borrowed so many tools so the next step is to start buying more tools. We need anything from abrasives to saws. We have gotten some but if we plan to do these kinds of projects all the time then we need to get some of our own tools. Winter is going to slow things down a bit but we will prepare for Spring!
