|I love that you can see when it was tuned written on the piano.|
We rented a U-Haul and drove to Lodi Saturday morning to pick up an upright piano. She was selling it for $250. It needs to be tuned, but it is in great condition. I always wanted a piano. I've always wanted to be able to play and sing. I am going to learn how to play and so are my boys. At the least, they will learn how to read music. We drove to Lodi to pick it up. We really didn't expect it to weigh so damn much. It must be over 700 pounds. Damn. Thank goodness Tiffani had a friend at her house who was willing to help us push and heave it into the trailer. Once we got home, we backed the trailer into the garage and borrowed our neighbors muscles to help push it down the lifts. Our neighbor lent us his lifts, but the piano was so damn heavy, the lifts almost split in half! Pedar had to replace his boards to make new lifts.
The piano is now waiting in the garage for the dudes we hired to arrive tomorrow to move into the house. Yes, the path to the front door is so far away from the driveway that we need muscles to help us move it out and up the steps into the house. It still needs to be tuned. We really hope that after we get it into the house ($250(piano) + $100(muscles) =$350) it can be tuned well.
|Our vents were disgusting. Not after a little scrubbing! Spring cleaning has begun!|
Anyhoo! After my run, I cleaned up and got ready for a fun day. Pedar and Casey left to St. John's for his first Holy Communion class. Erik has been wanting to go to Fairytale Town so I decided to take him! But when we got there, I looked across the street at Funderland and asked him if he'd rather go ride some rides. He said, "YES!" So off we went to Funderland. We rode some awesome rides and laughed! It was an awesome afternoon.
|I can't believe he is five-years-old and will be starting Kindergarten in less than five months.|
|Erik loved the dragon roller coaster the best!!|
