The pipes under the kitchen sink came apart, including the one from the disposal, and water and gross water went all over under there. The only thing that made it somewhat easier was the container I store my cleaning supplies in caught a lot of the water. It was my fault because I put some crap from the fridge in there and it jostled the pipes loose. My husband fixed it.
The shelving in my closet fell. It is that stupid white wire shelving and it is all connected. 3 shelves, 3 full clothing bars. On the floor. Well, some of it stayed and tried to rip out of the wall. If you know me, I have my closet color coded and sorted by season and my shoes are in their original boxes. I almost passed out. The one main bar that it all connects to was sitting on top of another bar, not attached or anything, just a small square piece on top of another so when it got bumped, it went a crashing. My husband fixed it with duct tape but I am currently looking into a wood closet shelving system from Lowes.
I got my hair cut short and a blue feather painted in. The funniest thing is, men notice it more than women. I like the shorter cut but it takes a long time to flat iron it and the front is a little longer than the back with fewer layers. It is too short for a pony so I have to style it every day. Something to live for.
Is anyone else watching The Bachelor? I really don't find Ben that attractive and the women are so utterly stupid that I could not even pick a favorite. They really should think about how they look and sound on tv. Their mother's should be ashamed. I will keep watching for now but it had better improve.
We made a trip to a new (to us) restaurant supply store yesterday. We were going to get just a few things and ended up with a Suburban load. They had lots of choices for new tables and chairs and we found a commercial toaster (350 pieces an hour) and 2 commercial microwaves. We have always just used 3 double toasters and regular residential mics because of the cost factor but we go through so many of them, it was time to try something different. When you serve 137,000 people a year, simple is better. We also stocked up on smallwares (plates, bowls, spatulas, whisks, etc.) and I got a new cutting board for home because ours is lost (?????) We also made a fun trip to Sams where I got edamame, chewy vitamins and TP. And a book about snipers for the little one.
I have been very good about watching my shopping since Christmas but I did want another pair of skinny (ha) jeans to wear with my tall boots. I ran in to Old navy yesterday to try on a pair of theirs (I have not bought their jeans in years but I had heard some good things lately) I ended up with the Diva skinny jean. Not the best I have ever had but decent for $30. I also got this sweater for $7 on the clearance table:
|(yes, I look like a bumblebee) Sweater-Old Navy, tank-Target, jeans-Silver, ribbon necklace-JCrew, bird necklace (from Mel for my birthday)- Fossil, watch-gift from hubs for Christmas|
I watched the entire season of American Horror Story (on FX) in 3 days. Loved it!
Our tree is still up. Last to go up, last to go down I always say. And since I am very particular on how everything gets wrapped and stored, I get to do it on my own. All of the decor is all over the dining room table.
Last week our employees were nuts. I was dealing with their bickering and arguing and there were a couple of times I seriously considered getting my taser out of the car.
The elliptical machine is still in the hospital, aka, they ordered a part. By the time I get it, I will have lost interest.
One of the houses in my neighborhood caught fire last week. They were burning leaves on a windy, dry day and it got away from them. They were lucky to get out in time but the entire side and second story is gone. It took all of the area fire depts. 5 hours to put it out with the lack of hydrants and nearby water supply (we are out of the city limits) and then they had to go back that evening to spray it again. Since our entire neighborhood is filled with oak trees and leaves covering the ground, it could have been so much worse.
That's it for now.
