And Another One Bites The Dust

This project took a little longer than expected, but it is now complete. The paint should be dry by tomorrow and books can be put on the bookshelves. If you look closely you will see that there are also lights in the bookshelf. Wade always has to add a fun twist to his projects. Now…

    Looks great!

    I thought Wade did a really good job. Now after a year of having boxes on the floor, he can finally unpack and settle in.

    I wish I could steal Wade for about two weeks!

  • HollyMay 1, 2007 - 7:58 pm

    I loan him out to any who ask.

    Those turned out great! Can’t wait to see them in person!

Work and Putt Putt

Wade and I spent the day being productive. He is working on laying a new floor in the mudroom. I spent the day working and doing small projects (like cleaning out the basement). The best part of the day was the end. We met Daniel and Laurie Wybenga for a night on the town. Dinner…

We Have Finally Broken Down

After three years of living in houses, we have finally bought a real lawn mower. When we first married, Wade and I both wanted a “real mower” – the old fashioned kind with only spinning blades and no motor. That worked fine until the blades became dull. We even found someone to sharpen them. Then…

    a “real” mower eh? Sad to see you guys leave green side. Perhaps you can break it out again when you have grass. Hope you guys already put out the anti-crabgrass for the season.

    Next year is the outside year. We’ve spent the first year in the house working on the inside. Next year we paint the house and work on getting real grass. The problem is when we kill all the weeds we just have mud – no grass. We tried that last year. Wade misses the “real mower” and is keeping it so he can go back to it as soon as we have a nice lawn.

Life Just Got Easier

I forgot to mention one of my favorite birthday gifts – a new roomba! The new roomba is a smart one. You can program it to clean rooms at certain times. It will even go back to the charger when the battery is running low. Now I can just push a button and my dirty…

    I would love to have a Roomba . . . however, that would be all that Mia would need to send her into cardiac cat Heaven . . . . . . . she’s terrified of our regular vaccum – could you imagine her rounding a corner and meeting head-on with the Roomba? I’m sure it would win America’s Funniest Video if it were on tape . . .

    Madison gets scared of it. We even put food on top of it thinking she would overcome her fear for the food – she didn’t. Of course, we still run it when she is around just to watch and laugh – mean aren’t we?

    What you and Wade will do for entertainment!!!! LOL

A Date, A Date, A Very Important Date

Wade and I have been trying to go to the movies for a month. Various things keep coming up. Tonight we were taking dinner to Caroline and then supposed to have Bible study next door at Kendall’s house. Bible study got canceled so we decided to make a date of it. We dropped off dinner…

Smart Me

Wade and I went again to work on the lady’s house. He worked inside putting up a ceiling and I worked outside painting trim. I was so excited about the 80 degree weather that I didn’t even think about the fact that this was the first time I had worn shorts in months. I got…

Happy Birthday To Me

Today was a great day. I started the day off with a present – a new bird feeder from Wade’s parents. Wade and I ran errands at lunch, but I did open one more present – a new digital camera from Wade. And it’s red!! The big celebrating happened after work. Michelle, Nate, Daniel, Laurie,…

Star Bright

I just love birthday presents! Jamie had emailed me a link to these stars a few weeks ago. I loved them, but decided not to order them till I knew what I would do with them. It’s a good thing too. Jamie sent me three big stars and three small stars for my birthday. Thank…
