Sealing the Driveway
« on: Apr 15, 2014, 04:07:27 PM »
150 dollars later  I have the sealer for the driveway.  Now I just have to pay for the pressure washer and randy to do the work.  I'm so glad he is around.

Now I have to wait for mother nature.  It's to cold to do the work.  Isn't it always something?

Now I have to get the tile for the kitchen.  I got the flooring, and the vanity for the kitchen.  With the transition pieces.  I hope I have chosen well since I plan to live with it the rest of my life.

I got out there and sprayed the round up weed killer 365 and it immediately rained.  That stuff is 35.00 per bottle.  Ugh.  And getting a different type of tar for the cracks along with the weed eater costs another 85 dollars in change.  I'm going broke fast.

The website says "Rainproof in 30 minutes".  Normally it's ok if it dries.

It didn't have a chance to dry.  it barely had a chance to hit the ground.  According to the bottle if it was going to work I'd have seen something within 12 hours.  This morning the weeds looked as healthy as ever.  I'll just have to get out there again when we get a clear day.  Not today.

Yeah,  no chance to work if it didn't dry at all.

Fortunately I have enough left to do it all again.

the 350 dollar job came closer to 1000 dollars.  Boy am I broke.
