Labor Day Turned Into Labor Day For Me

Labor Day Made Me Tired

Hello peeps, I hope you all had a great and fun Labor Day weekend.  I was able to spend some time with my family, and we actually did some real hard labor for the holiday weekend.   It was fun, and hard work all at the same time.   Working as a team with a lot of my family members made it not seem like work at all.   Have you ever been on a group build for like Habit For Humanity?  That is what this seemed like even though it was simply a family event.

So we had my aunts, uncles, cousins, and a few friends all gather at my grandmother’s home during the long weekend.  All together we had like 25 people there at her house, so it was kind of like a big family reunion, but a working reunion.  She lives out in west Texas in a town called Lubbock.  You probably have heard of it if you are from Texas.   Anyway she is getting up there in years and simply needed a few things done around the house to help keep it from falling apart around her.

My cousin Jared works for a fence repair company in Lubbock, so he, and I along with a couple of our other cousins were assigned to work on the fence.  Jared was a great “boss” (that is what I kept calling him) during the weekend.  He has learned a lot about building fences, repair and also staining fences since he started working for that company.   My grandmother’s fence still has a few years left on it, but just needed to be freshened up, so we are trying to make it last a while longer before having to buy a new one.
