Remodeling! Part 2!

I got to my parents' this morning around 9:30. After a late start, I started priming the walls in the kitchen behind the fridge, and the afternoon consisted of priming and getting high. Whoo hoo! After 2 coats everywhere, and 3 coats in some areas, the priming was complete! My mom painted the section behind the fridge with the green paint she chose, but it was really light. Even after a 2nd coat, we all agreed that it was a bit too light. So, she'll bring the paint back tomorrow or some time this week to ask them to darken it to the next shade. So, that was the huge majority of what I did today!

Ron worked on putting down the dining room floor, and he got it finished this evening. It looks AMAZING!!! He did a great job, and it really made the room look different!! I do have pictures, but I am way too tired to fiddle with getting them online tonight. I'll work on it tomorrow or at some point this week! Next weekend, the remodeling will continue when Ron puts down the kitchen…


The flooring project for my parents' house began today. I was at their house at 9am, and for quite awhile I was upstairs on kid duty! We played with Legos for awhile, and then I took out the old Fisher Price Farm (the ORIGINAL farm, not that plastic shit they have now where you push a button and it makes the animal noises for the kids.....whatever happened to imagination, Fisher Price??? lol), and Mandy's old My Little Pony stable, with a ton of ponies! It brought back some memories!! After awhile, we ventured downstairs, watched some cartoons, and my parents bought a huge thing of pizza for lunch. After that, it was time to move things out of the dining room to get the floor up in the there!

Mandy and Ron ripped up the flooring in the kitchen, all 3 layers of it. However, in the dining room, they decided to leave in the subflooring. So, we wrote on it!! I drew a smiley face, then wrote Floor RIP 5/30/09. Awhile later, my dad was joking about doing a chalk outline of a dead p…

Weekend Busyness!

It's hard to believe that the long weekend is almost over. Weekends don't seem long to me anymore anyway, since it's the same old thing all the time. Not working for 9 years does that to you. Or maybe it's just me! Anyway, my weekend has been rather nice.

My parents' 35th anniversary was last Monday. My sistores and I had been trying to come up with a surprise for them, but we were trying to look around, shop and compare, and come up with the best prices for what we could try to afford. So, we didn't have our surprise ready on Monday to tell them. Friday, however, we put the plan into action! I made a homemade anniversary card with a picture of my parents on the front from Mandy's wedding. On the inside of the card, I wrote some nice stuff, and at the end, gave them 3 options to choose from. They were Surprise #1, #2, and #3! I walked down to my parents' house around 6:30. Joanie was on the porch, and we chatted for a bit. My mom saw me and asked if I w…

New Pics!

I get Mittens a new litter box, and he still likes to hang out on it once in awhile. lol It's usually when I'm at the table eating something he wants and isn't going to get!!

Ok, so I was a little bored. Well, not really. More like, procrastinating! I may have a skirt and short-sleeved shirt on, but I haven't switched over my wardrobe yet. I'm avoiding it for some reason, even though it's been so nice out!!

Mittens is laying like a slug in the background on his bubblewrap. LOL!!

The Cabbage Patch Diaries!



I decided to go to Amherst today, about a 25 minute ride or so from the Falls. There are quite a few stores out there that aren't around here, including Michael's Craft store. I wanted to get a gift card, and of course, browse at beads! So I set out around noonish. I left the house and said goodbye to my little man sitting in the windowsill in the bathroom! He was meowing back at me, and it was just too cute! I wanted to go back into the house to pet him, but I went to the garage, pulled the car out, and pulled up to the side of the house to roll down my window and say goodbye again. lol I made my way to Amherst, jammin' to tunes and enjoying the sunshine and nice weather!

I got to Michael's, and maybe it was a good thing, but there was just not much on sale in the bead department. Oh, I enjoyed browsing everything, but I only bought 3 items. One was on sale, one I got for 40% off with the coupon I printed out (whoo hooo!), and one was just a purchased item. I wandered …

Ok, An Update Of Sorts

I know, I said I was going to update the day after my last post, and I never did. Every time I think about posting something, it's so late and I'm too tired to think. Like now. But I thought, I'll type something anyway! So if it doesn't make too much sense, sorry. I'm very tired!!

The movie I saw last Friday night was Obsessed, with BĂ©yonce. I said to my friends, I could have waited a few years and seen it on the Lifetime network. lol It was an ok movie, I'd give it one paw up.

Saturday, my PH support group meeting went very well! I had 25 people, the new location worked out wonderful, and the food was excellent and ABUNDANT!! The speaker was a pharmacist from Accredo, and he discussed the PH meds, how different meds treat a different aspect of PH, and taking other meds while on the PH drugs. Questions were asked, jokes were shared (someone asked about drinking alcohol, and then several more asked about it too....we sounded like a group of lushes LOL), and it was…
