Remodeling with a Vengence

We are in phase II of our remodeling projects.
Phase I consisted of updating the bland main level of our home with pergo flooring, tile in the bathroom, new paint throughout, lighting fixtures, new microwave, sink-disposer-faucet, and dishwasher. By the time we finished with that we needed a long break. But along comes a long holiday weekend, so "the man" and I decide that we are going to go all out and get it done - tile, paint, the works. Well,...... it is Thursday and we still have only one working toilet. I have run out of steam and my body is revolting with a lovely cold-sore on my lip. I have only 2 more rooms to paint and we will have re-painted the entire house that is finished. But, I do not care! I do not care that my bedroom has all the furniture in the middle of the room. I do not care that I have not made my bed for 5 days. I do not care that I am really beginning to look like a "broken down house wife" wearing her Pj's all day. I do not care that I have more paint on my clothes, arms, face then the wall - at times.

I am Tired!

So needless to say I hope that by the weekend that we will have the bathroom's back to functioning. It is surprising how much you get spoiled with extra bathroom's. But after all that the bathrooms are starting to be my favorite rooms in the house - they just look so good when they are finished. Here is the finished kids bathroom.

Stock Options

Do you ever wish that you had stock options in the following companies- Kleenex, Benadryl, Tylenol, Robitussin, and Shasta. For the last two weeks these companies have been keeping me alive.

I finally went into the Doctor and got diagnosed with a severe sinus infection and Bronchitis. All I can say is I am happy to finally break my Kleenex box a day habit and the Cream Soda addiction that I have been under.

I also am glad for a man that shares my conviction of throwing items in the fridge out too soon, Mr. Louis Pastour`; nothing in my fridge disappears unless it is growing something and thanks to him we have life saving Penicillin of which I am grateful for, cause now I know that I will recover from the gombu.

Bill the Cat

Does anyone remember "Bill the Cat" comic strip?

It was hilarious with a cat that looked like some of us feel in the morning.

Well this is my "Bill the Cat" week. I have the "gombu" and I swear that I will die from snot. I never knew that so much snot could be produced by one nose.
