A Work in Progress

While Wade and I were doing the wiring on Sunday, I found an old screen door in the attic. It used to be on the back door before someone put in a metal one (which I don’t like). The old one even has the original brass hinges and doorknob. It has quite a bit of…

Lights, Camera, Action

This post is really just about lights. Wade and I spent the day doing some wiring in his shop. I wanted another light switch for the outdoor lights inside the back door. He wanted an additional 220 line run for his new compressor. Spending today in the attic was much better than last time in…

    Well you did better than me… Last time I was in the attic I cut into a hot line trying to install a Ceiling fan. Never assume that you can possible understand how a house is wire… that is the lesson I took from the experience. These days almost the entire house goes dark before I cut anything.

    By the way, How smart of an idea was it to insulate wire cutters.. someones is really thinking for those of us that don’t!

    I remember you trying to wire up a ceiling fan about a year ago. Mabye that was the same one. Yeah, getting shocked is no fun. I have had it happen a couple of times, but I always prefer the electricity off!

Dinner, Games, and Laughs

I love the random stories about how people meet. I had met a friend of a friend at Girl’s Night Out (a girl at my church sets these up once a month for all the girls she knows). The second time we saw each other at Girl’s Night Out, Michelle and I ended up sitting…

A Hopping Friday Night

Obviously Wade was worn out from a week of hard work. I’m not sure what Madison’s excuse was. I enjoyed a new book (after a trip to the library). Wade did eventually wake up and we decided to have a date night with dinner out and a new game for the Wii.

It Was Gone in an Hour

I think I have mentioned before the wonders of our neighborhood. You can place anything (and I mean anything) on the side of the road. If nobody picks it up then the garbage men will definitely take it away. Wade and I cleaned out some furniture we found in the basement from the previous owners….

We Are On A Roll

This project has been in the works for quite a while. Wade sprayed a board with Chalkboard paint (very cool stuff). He had just been waiting to get a new blade for his table saw before he could make the frame. He made the frame and I did the painting. Now we have a chalkboard…

Work Out? Not Yet

Wade has a great plan to begin working out again. I have been slacking on my running so I had decided to join him. He had done his research and found a new place with great rates. We arrived at Coop’s only to discover the building is still under construction. Too bad they didn’t publicize…

  • […] The gym I mentioned a while back is now open. Wade and I joined and even got a couple sessions with a personal trainer as part of the deal. I was excited about this until I realized a big part of it is diet – a low sodium diet. I could be committed to eating healthier, but not eating anything prepackaged is a stretch – no boxed rice, no cookie dough, no Rice Krispies, no corn flake chicken, no pork chops, no cheese, no butter, no chocolate chip muffins. There are about 10 items that are on the approved list. Wade and I decided to give it a shot, but I don’t think we are willing to make a lifetime commitment. There are too many yummy foods out there. « Dumb Dob, Why Are You Following Me?   The Pictures are Hung By the Window with Care » […]

Goodbye Tubbles

A nice family from Asheville, North Carolina came today to check out Tubbles. I had emailed with the woman quite a bit and they seemed very interested. I should have known it was a sure thing when they brought their children with them. The family spent an hour at our house talking with us and…

    Aww, it looks like she has a nice new family. I bet you were sad to see her go! Does Madison miss her?

    I was just happy that we finally found a family for Tubbles. I was worried she might end up staying with us indefinitely. I can’t really tell a difference in Madison, but then they never did play together. Tubbles would just tolerate Madison trying to play. Maybe we’ll get a young dog for Madison to play with next.
