Easter Baskets and Boppies

Time flies when it’s the weekend. Friday afternoon we wanted to get the sidewalk finished.  Knobby had to make a Home Depot trip mid-work (but it was good because Minion needed to be fed, anyway), and we didn’t finish until after dark, but  . . . we finished!  That’s what counts. Except . . . […]

Owen and Marty

Knobby feels good today because he’s cancelled our Sirius. I’m somewhat sad to lose it, because I enjoyed commercial-free music and not having to search for new radio stations whenever we travel. But. Sirius has been incompetent at every turn.  Incompetent any time we had to deal with employees doing anything whatsoever to our account. […]

Mad Beef

Still on my Sudafed train.  Annoying. Thought I’d take a break from the Nyquil last night, and boy, was that a mistake. —– When I saw the Amazon Fire TV announcement, I should have known not to be surprised when one showed up courtesy of UPS the next day. It is tee-tiny. It is quick […]

Aggression Avenue

I have often ranted to you about The Thorns.  College-aged imbeciles who rent a trailer that has road rights to our driveway. Our driveway has a gate.  Thorns cannot comprehend proper gate behavior.  There are normal remote “clickers” for this gate, but Knobby wrote a website system for it as well . . . and […]

Porpoise Painting and Sick Days

Oh, did you think I was posting with pictures of my finished stair hall? Ha. That’s as far as it got.  I’d been flirting with a cold and it caught up to me, and who wants to paint with a cold. Not me. I think Oliver has the cold as well.  He keeps randomly screaming […]

More Boring

I am painting again. This time, it’s the stair hallway in the house proper.  Old drywall mixed with new drywall that was repaired from an old roof leak.  All the old dingy and marked up from various things rubbing against it throughout the years, all the new bare and still squared off into gray sections. […]

Guest Bedroom

When I started painting the guest bedroom in April of LAST YEAR, I never would have imagined that it would be nearly a year before I finished it. Oh yes.  That was April of 2013.  This is a long and narrow room, and this paneling takes forever anyway . . . but an uber eternity […]

Sleepwalker

Something ab.so.lute.ly crazy happened last night. Minion went to sleep at a decent hour . . . and I did not wake up until 9:30 this morning. Yes, that’s right.  There was no Night Shift waking to feed and change him. Did Knobby do it?  Did I just not hear him crying?  Nope . . […]

TweetTweet

Things we’ve been getting done: ~Had my root canal. Ow. ~Pixy’s salon day yesterday.  A much-needed cut and color, as I was scheduled a month ago but had to drop that appointment as it was so soon after the Minion’s arrival.  I was so sick of my hair!  Every waking moment that I stayed at […]

Time to Accomplish Something

It is looking like a three-coffee day. That works out, because I have this huge bulk box of Donut Shop k-cups that Knobby bought right before the predicament.  Obviously I couldn’t drink it then, and he doesn’t drink coffee, and the box claims “best by January 2014″ . . . so I have my coffee […]
