I can't believe it's almost May!! After months of making plans, budget-making, revising those plans and budgets, doing our part to stimulate the economy, and dreaming big dreams, our Pull The Trigger Project finally starts this weekend!! Woohoo! And good thing too...our yard is starting to look like Sanford and Sons. lol

Big Daddy and I will head north without the little ones (gulp!) to do a major clean-up at the cabin. Hopefully we can drive right in this time. We had to hoof it in (about a half mile), last month. We had perfect conditions though...we could walk right on top of the snow without sinking. Here's what it looked like:

So our plan is:

Weekend #1 - clean up and disinfect the cabin. Hopefully remove ALL the unwanted ummm tenants. Not as easy as it sounds, believe me!

Weekend #2 - Build the forms for the new shed base. Start tilling my field. Yippee!!!

Weekend #3 - Pour cement pad. Continue tilling my field. Then visit the chiropractor! lol

Weekend #4 and start of 10 days of holidays for Big Daddy - erect the new shed and rent a cube van to move fencing materials, equipment, tools and toys up north. There's a LOT of stuff here.

Of course the field needs to be fenced and my garden needs to be planted all before May 24 too.

Yup, it's going to be busy but we can't wait! The little ones are soooo excited about staying at the cabin this year and to rip around on Mommy's new toy...I mean totally essential farm equipment! hehe
So stay tuned for the Pull The Trigger Project adventures....gonna need a bigger first-aid kit, I just know it! lol


  1. I thought you said you bought a mini-van? Well, you know me...I always like a four wheel drive convertible!!

  2. TOO COOL !!!! So glad to hear that things are working out for the move to the cabin. Be sure to keep us up to date on all the great things that I know will happen there. Love the pics of the cabin with all the snow.


  3. Hey there Penny: Yeah, we needed a 7 passenger but opted for more air conditioning! hehe All 3 of us girlies can fit though.

    Hey Chris! Man, you'd love the snow up there...well maybe for a week or so! lol Thank you for stopping by.

  4. By the time I left this comment, it is already May. Thats what I have a real hard time believing. The time sure flies when you don't want it to. lol.

  5. Hey Mark!! hahaha We've learned something already with the "plans"...expect to double the time and money you've planned for to really get the jobs done! Nothing comes together quickly even when you have it planned out! Wild!!!
    Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again!
