Gary's office is under construction! It was started last Monday and is supposed to be finished by the end of this week. That timeline sounds a little ambitious to me, but I'm hoping they're right.
As a bit of an afterthought we also decided to landscape the side yard since our brick patio was sinking in spots and we were sick to death of Lola tracking in mud every time it rained. Hooray! We'll keep you posted with this week's progress.
