Weekend House Prep

Alan [grandpapa to the best grand twins] tells me he has enough help for this Saturday, May 19th, 9:00 AM workday, but he does not fully know what lurks in the business storage, the garage and the garage attic. Work will be in those areas, and also the outside landscaping, planting of flower pots and beds, putting down mulch. Did I mention the pool that needs to be cleaned out? So ya, lots to do.

"Many hands make light work" my mom would say as she handed us a grocery bag to fill up with weeds from the garden, ON A SATURDAY! I still shutter thinking about weeding that garden. Maybe that's why there were 8 of us kids??? [I love you mom!]

Tools needed if you help outside are wheel barrels, pitch forks, garden rakes, mulch rakes, work gloves, your favorite garden trowel and loving the feel of mulch and black dirt under your fingernails.

Tools needed if you are helping with the garage cleanout: work gloves, a mind for sorting, a back for lifting, patience and a sense of humor.

Lunch for Saturday is being provided by friends; we may need a few ladies to help with serving and cleanup. Bring you own water bottle. Free refills.

IF you have NOT "registered" and are coming to do general work, AND will be able to stay for lunch at NOON, we do need a head count for food. Please send an email to the address below. Just put your name, "cleanup" and how many are coming in the subject line to amschmanke@gmail.com. That's it.

Google map can help you get to Old Kirk Road in Geneva. There is no longer any access from Rt. 38. as Old Kirk Road is closed at the railroad tracks. You must enter via Cherry Lane.
Construction note: There is only 1 lane of traffic at the corners of Rt 38 and Kirk. You can avoid that corner by taking Rt 25 south to Fabyan Parkway east to Kirk to Old Kirk.... just look at the map. LOL

There will be other things and times to help out with Dan. No regrets are needed if this is not your time or way to help. We love you more than you can know. You continue to overwhelm us.


P.S. After a few days of little sleep, Dan had a good nights sleep last night. He was up for an hour and a half, but then went back to sleep and slept until 8 am. He has been taken OFF a few more sleep / anxiety meds, as we are trying other alternative methods to get him back to sleep: talking, scripture, head massages, music and a few other things.
