Million Dollar Baby and more…

We finally got to watch Million Dollar Baby this past Saturday night and all I can say is Wow!, what a movie… If you haven’t seen this movie, go out and watch it. I’m not going to say anything about the movie itself for those of you out there that haven’t seen it; just know that this movie was great.

On the home front, we started planning Saturday for our landscaping. We went to Home Depot and thanks to Greg we now have a clue on how to prepare the soil correctly. Because we have clay (and sometimes caliche) in our area, I’m going to have to dig out about 9 inches of soil and mix in good soil down to about 18 inches. This is going to royally suck. The soil out here is not that easy to dig out. If everything goes as planned, Tommie should be able to start planting by the end of March, beginning of April. The ideas Tommie has for the landscaping are really good and I think it’s going to improve the curb appeal of the house a lot.

I got to organize our garage yesterday. We went to Lowes and bought some Rubbermaid shelves and a bike rack. The shelves were really easy to set up and they can hold up to 180lbs. per shelf. I even hanged tennis balls from the ceiling to help with parking. We now can actually walk around our cars without having to play obstacle course.

  5. Heard about a product called MBMA from Lowe’s or Home Depot that is supposed to do a great job of killing the dallas grass….the guy said it would turn your grass brown for a few days but nothing permanent and kills the dallas grass…further research is required…:)
