"Would you like fries with that?"

About a month ago Popster & I decided it was time to up-date our bathroom..............why now when I am back to work & presently working 6 days a week....I have no clue. It's just the way we do things around here!

Our bathroom is the original & I had painted & decaled(spell checker doesn't like this word) the vanities to "pretty" it up but it is peach! How many people do you know that have a "peach" bathroom????? We are "gutting" the entire room down to the studs!! Yikes!

We went out looking for ideas & finally had our "plumbing guy" come over to see what he thought. He told us to go out & get all the fixtures & call him when we were ready. He also gave us a list of what we needed & where to go for everything. It rained a couple of weeks ago & I had the day off so I called Popster & told him to meet me at our local plumbing store. We started with the tub & shower surround, which was pretty simple. From there on to the toilet........this is when it started.........what height? round or oval? what color? Okay, enough of that lets move on to the vanity. It just got more complicated so I finally said I like this how much? Then on to the faucets & shower head.........wow more choices! We finally had a pretty good idea of what we liked & got prices............another Yikes! I decided to check out a couple more places seeing I had the afternoon off. So glad I did as the exact same vanity was about $150 cheaper, linen tower $200 cheaper & the counter & sink $100 cheaper!

We ended up going to the second place a week later to order the vanity, top & linen tower. Our sales person's name was Wolfgang.........would I lie.......& he wrote with a "flourish" at the end of every word. It took an hour to order those 3 items...............I have never had to make so many decisions like .....dovetail or regular drawers?, 31" or 35" high? toe kick or not? recessed or straight sink? what shape? I, of course pick a shape that can only be recessed which I didn't want!

Anyway we finally got it ordered & then went on to the plumbing store to answer more questions like the shape of the toilet! Who cares! We still need to go out to pick out tile & light fixtures............not yet my mind needs a break!

We are also replacing all the doors in the hallway at the same time but that "ordering fiasco" will be another whole post for another day!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.







Needless to say at that poin…

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
