*Updated the appearance of this blog, used my own garden photo. Perhaps I’ll start up a website with header photos that I’ve taken. Do I need another business?
*Sister update. The job offer never happened. Just from that lack of communication, I told her that she most likely does not want to work there anyways. Easy for me to say as I’m not the one without a job. Her mortgage modification has not gone through yet, so this is looking bleak. I hate it.
*Getting ready to break from MSU yoga! Nice to have a bit more free time. To do what? Clean my house.
*Our son will turn 16 on March 8. He purchased his first vehicle, a 1987 Dodge Dakota. It’s a real lemon. My husband can rebuild and loves any small engine repair. He’s never overhauled a vehicle before. But guess what? He has now! In our backyard he self taught himself how to change bearings and an oil pump in a vehicle engine. In the cold weather at that.
*I wish my kitchen was a small engine.
*When you own a truck, everyone wants your help. When you can fix stuff, everyone wants your help.
*It’s sunny today and I am really glad. Tomorrow it’s supposed to be in the 70’s.
*I have an infection of some sort on my eyelids. Make-up, bacteria, viral or an allergy? I don’t know. It’s been a week and it’s not all the way gone. I’m thinking about checking out the new walk-in clinic at Wal-Mart. They take our insurance. Now if they just had a post office!
*We sold our ugly loveseat on Craig’s List for $30 in less than 24 hours.
*We also got rid of our ginormous blue, velour sectional.
*We inherited a sofa (below) that my sister purchased from Burdine’s. It will be slipcovered soon as we cannot have anything that light of a color in our house! We also inherited a barrel chair from the house I grew up in, a cool white end table from Pottery Barn and a leather ottoman/coffee table.
*On the way to Pier 1 to check out a $375 chair, I stopped at a flea market and found two chairs for $129. Totally awesome. I’m not into antiques, but I think they’re from the 30’s or 40’s and man, are they comfortable! They do look cool and they’re in great condition.
*The round glass coffee table is a split tree trunk and my sister made it. I’m keeping it, but taking it apart and using the trunks for extra seating or something. We’ve had it a long time and it went great with our sectional.
*Anyone need a huge piece of super heavy, circular glass?
*Ignore the floor as it will be refinished and of course, doesn’t everyone keep sheet rock in their hallway! We’ve been consumed by a 1987 Dodge Dakota!
*I’m painting the frontroom and hallway blue.
*You can park for 30 minutes at MSU for a quarter! Perfect for dropping off paper work. Beats an $18 ticket!
*Things that are marked “Dresden” and “Nippon” are great items to put on e-bay!
*I am so ready for the grass to turn green!
