Starring random Hispanic dude we accidentally called five times. Let me explain. My in-laws have a new house. They're moving out of the city and into the country, and they have a new house. They've been working on cleaning up the old home, their 'starter' home of 30+ years for sale. This weekend, we visited … Continue reading Let’s Play What Circuit Is This Outlet On?
I didn't get any pictures from the techs, sad, sad, which is unfortunate, but I had my MRI on last Monday! I was rescheduled, and it turns out that's because they wanted to use this piece that wraps around my head, and that won't fit in the normal MRI. Fair enough. I was scheduled for … Continue reading MRI Anecdotes
And to Round Out Your Week - Cute Photos of Tundra My camera died, so I spent time using one of my mother-in-law's old phones to take photos of the new house. I don't have a smart phone, and my digital camera was from 2013 as a wedding gift. I'm not sharing those because it's … Continue reading Tundra Turned Eleven!
Here's the Birthday presents I got that are NOT art supplies, in no particular order. I mean, the biggest one is last because I don't want it to negate the other awesome presents, which I love, but otherwise no order. From dad, window prisms! I have one in the bedroom, but now I can hang … Continue reading Birthday Presents I Adore
BEWARE: LOTS OF IMAGES First of all, here's the ADORABLE card my husband got me. I'm only showing the outside because the interior messages are private. He drew in Tundra's paws! SO cute. This year I received quite a few art supplies, and you KNOW I love art supplies, so we're going over them. First, … Continue reading Artsy Birthday Presents!
My in-laws have an dog named Aasha. She’s sweet and borky, but she doesn’t like other dogs, violently so. We always kennel Tundra when we go to see them. She’s old and tired. She has some form of pituitary cancer, but they can’t do anything about it. She drinks and drinks and drinks but then … Continue reading Aasha Baasha
My in-laws were hit by the same storm, and thankfully my father-in-law was in town, not at home, or he would have lost his vehicle and been trapped. All photos taken by my husband. They lost their driveway. Doesn't look impressive here: But from this angle? It's completely destroyed. This is the 'culvert' under it. … Continue reading In-Laws Were Hit By the Flooding Too
We went to a relative's high school graduation party, and it seems like there were parties EVERYWHERE. Which makes me a bit nostalgic for the summer after High School Graduation where I was finally DONE with Day Care (I mean High School) and eagerly looking forward to college. I had no real responsibilities, and everything … Continue reading Just a Little Bit of Nostalgia
Our toilet has been acting up for years... it doesn't want to flush, it takes a ton of water, and it's aggravating all around. Clogs on literally NOTHING, takes three or four tries to flush, overflows, runs continuously until you jiggle the handle... the works. No amount of additives or plunging has helped. My husband … Continue reading Behold! A Toilet at Last!
This weekend, my father-in-law was going through the freezer, and he sent home some frozen salmon with us from one of his fishing trips. "Just cut off the not-pink parts," he said. It was a little freezer burned. Mistake #1: Assuming it would take some time to thaw. Mistake #2: Not putting it in a … Continue reading What is This New and Exciting Smell I’ve Discovered?
