Exploring at Night!

Lexi and the cats were checking out the pool progress. Right now we have to water the gunite about 3 times a day while it's curing. Today is Saturday and it's day 6. We have to water for 10 days in a row. They came and did the electrical and hooked the pool lights up, conected the electrical box to where the pump will go and took all the wooden post's out from around the side of the pool. We are making super progress!!! All in all it's been a great experience!! Rob's getting super excited and we pretend to swim and jump in right now!!! I guess I can cancel my tanning membership since I will be uber tan next summer!! :-) Well I still have the cruise in Jan to get ready for so I won't cancel it yet !!!

Well they are back today (Oct 13th) to finish my dig....whooo hoooo!!! Here's a friend of mine Josh who was so excited that the big man and the big tractor were in my back yard. He was going back and forth between 2 windows.

Phone Lines....

I had to e-mail digi photos of my phone lines to a engineer in Napa so she could figure out some stuff. Love the way the internet can help out in times like this.....

A Little News....

Well the phone company says they can just move the phone line and do an "aerial drop" from the telephone line to the house. They will come out this upcoming Wednesday and do that. So hopefully the pool will get dug very very soon after that.

Well we just found out that the phone line goes right through the pool.....have a phone call into the engineer of this area for SBC to call me and find a solution.....digging has stopped and there is no one here now......

Wednesday ---Oct 5th

Well they were here at 7AM!!! Nice and early. They had this HUGE backhoe and a bobcat in my backyard. They got a huge tree stump out and then hit a very old septic tank that they had to take out and will backfill here any minute. Of course that's 3 extra hours of the excavators time. Nothing goes as plans right? :-)

Here's a photo of them setting the shape of the pool before digging.
