I have the best brother-in-law.
This afternoon, Mike came over and helped me with some manual labor.
Of course, I managed to lock myself out of the house on the way to Lowe's...luckily I had my phone with me and convinced my darling friend, Jess, to come by on her way home from work and let me back in.
Mike wasn't phased--he kept working and built a fantastic paver area for our new grill.
I'm so happy. Now I can grill close to my side door!
Before he left, I somehow managed to con him into cleaning my gutters.
