crazy days off!

Monday Andy and I drove to lake Malone in Kentucky to see my old friend from HS, Jennifer.

It was a superb day on the lake, with lots of adorable babies and catching up.

Next Monday is not only Freddy's b-day but also my bff Kristie's. She has taken to knitting with the most clinical enthusiasm and so I have created for her an organizational system for her ever growing needle collection.

16 years ago....

We made a fantastic decision!

day off!

A test of the skull cherry design and the atomic napkins my BFF Betty is taking to comicon for the cast of Big Bang Theory to autograph for us a la Lenard Nemoy.

The back of the new chair covering is complete. Zach promised to do the removal of the old uppolstery for me, so perhaps this weekend I can put it together.

We spent the day doing all things bowling.

Rachel and I schooled the youngsters. Then William and I hit the thrifts and purchased him a new old bowling bag. With a little scrubbing and artistic embellishment he's ready to get his game on.

The bathroom is finally finished. Just in time considering how busy we are about to be.

We hit the thrifts and yard sales yesterday in our non bathroom completion time. It would seem yesterday was all about light. $2 for the fantastic once hung in a church chandelier. I put a lamp inside it. It make the warmest glow. $6 for the pair of wood and ceramic lovelies for the living room. I'm still unsure about the shade, but we'll see what else shows itself.

the new bathroom

Last Friday we gutted the bathroom. We are now entering our second week and the end is in sight.

The chaos was all encompassing, with the den as staging area and the living room as the closet refugee camp.

Divi did his part as quality control.

Then the geometric retard cut and installed the trim.

Tonight we install the sink and the rest of the plumbing. We are so close.
