Are Things Back To Normal Yet?


Is everyone else working again? I had no work for three weeks in April. I've been working six days a week for two months.

Hope y'all a gettin' some too! Work I mean.

Feast or famine - Phone won't ring for a week, then 3 people call and want something done "today" and call someone else when I tell them I can't get to it until next week because I already took on enough work for this week. Then nothing for another week.

trimmed 2 houses this month and other small jobs here and there.
2 houses is more than I've done in about 6 months.
Starting to see houses being framed again, well at least in one subdivision
