Labor Day (and the day before)

First of all, we had pancakes for breakfast, and then, Dad decided that it would be a good day to pickup the sticks that he cut down a month and a half ago (maybe more). We finished the meal and cleaned up the kitchen; I took a shower and got dressed. Dad went out to the office for an hour and a half, and then decides to fix our leaky faucets. We tore up the faucet in the process, so we decided to go to Home Depot to get new ones. While we we're there, my dad decided to check out the carpet. (Now, we're getting new carpet soon). Next, went to check out the toilets, none of them we're just right, so we skedaddled on across the street to Lowe’s. We ate lunch at the hot dog stand outside the store (Yum!).
There we got a new toilet for my parent’s bathroom. When we got home, we tried to put in one faucet but we could not because we didn’t have the right pipes. We also took out the old toilet. But we had to go to a party at our pool. On the way there, we got the right pipes from Home Depot.
When we got back (9:30ish EST) we put in the toilet (easier said than done) then went to bed.

MONDAY… (Labor Day and the last day of the pool)
We put the faucets in and got everything working right, then I mowed the grass.
Then we finally got to the sticks. We hauled all the branches to the back yard and started a fire. Then, we cut down almost a whole, dead, dogwood tree (we used to have 5, now we’re down to 3 1/5).
We cut it all up into logs and put it on our wood pile.
Then we went to the pool for the rest of the day. I did a lot of diving.

Well, that was my weekend. Ortho trip today
(My braces are malfunctioning).
