Business Idea? Sounds good.

A few weeks ago my co-worker Sodalis asked me if Dave could help rebuild their pond. Sodalis said she was inspired by our back yard when I threw a baby shower for her back in 07'. Her husband Ryan built the pond but without a waterfall and it was too shallow so some of their fish got eaten, possibly by raccoons or some type of large bird. So we needed the money and Dave offered some of his expertise and time. Him and Ryan had to dig up this HUGE hole about 4 feet deep!
Here is the liner that goes on top of the dirt. There must be no punctures in the liner whatsoever so water doesn't leak into the earth. Then you need a pump for the waterfall which keeps the water oxygenated. And a UV light to keep the water from getting too cloudy and keeping the algae amount down.
Just fill with water and turn the pump on which runs on electricity. Next, decorate with pebbles, rocks and stones.

Let your fish swim freely! And feed them, but not too much.
And finally enjoy your pond!! I want to come by in a few weeks and see what kind of plants they put around the pond so it all comes together. And hopefully Dave can do some side work, he really enjoys it.

I Miss blogging.

I've been very uncomfortable sitting at my computer, therefore, I haven't been blogging at all since my injury happened. I've pretty much just been doing what my doctor ordered me to so I can recover ASAP. And it really hasn't been going as fast as I would like it to. It has been 26 days since I've been hurt and I'm just really fed up on being disabled(can't do anything) and I'm totally serious about that. I've been R.I.C.Eing it. Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. I think I've seen everything TV has to offer. I've pretty much just been on the couch being tended to hand and feet by Dave.
Ugh. Looking at it is just gross. There is still a lot of fluid in it. The pain is behind the knee cap and the inner-side part of the knee. I miss doing all of the things I used to do like hanging out with my pals, working out, driving and even work!
