    Note that the mother-in-law is actually his sister’s mother-in-law, his mother-in-law is in Canada and she has a summer birthday. it’s a long story as to why his sister’s mother-in-law is part of our family, too, but she is awesome so it is all good.

    Further note that I spent all morning hanging out with furnace guys as we got our ducts cleaned for the first time in the 11 years we have lived in this house. i’m *already* ready for a weekend of doing nothing, but instead I am even busier than Jaybird, with all the stuff he mentions plus a social engagement tomorrow morning and work on Sunday morning. Good times.Report

    My deck guy and my handy man were both here on the same day earlier this week. They knew one another (the latter had recommended the former to us). Anyway, apparently someone they both knew had recently won $300k in the lottery. Apparently the person needed it really badly.

    My aunt (the one with the brawling family) will be bringing over a bunch of furniture tomorrow, so that’s going to be a big thing. My mother-in-law is in town (in case you missed that post, they were talking about whether she needs a nap two hours after she woke up!) (But seriously, my mother-in-law is pretty awesome.). My sister-in-law will be stopping by this weekend.

    The aforementioned handy man has dropped off the face of the earth. He no-showed for three consecutive days and isn’t returning our calls. I’d be worried that he took the deposit money and ran, but he left all of his tools here as well as the stuff I think he bought with the deposit money.Report

    It’s unlikely to pay off, sure, but I think it’s probably not actually a waste of money to buy some tickets when it’s over 100 million in payoff. This is pari-mutuel betting, sometimes the odds can favor you.Report

      Yeah, when Mega Millions is over 100 and when Powerball is over 200, it becomes a good bet (fsvo “good”). I pretty much have priced my daydreams to be worth about 5 bucks.Report
