Cr*ig's List, Popster's Mental State & The Tile Store

While JoAnne was home during the holiday's we were talking about the big "kitchen redo" & I was showing her the plans.  She started asking me what we doing with the things like the sink, which she knew was only a couple years old.  I said I was replacing it because I wanted a double sink.  Being my daughter( the psychiatrist who has to psychoanalyze everyone) asked Popster how he felt about me "junking" a perfectly good sink.  He was on his way out the door & after thinking for a minute he said "It really disturbs me, in fact I'm deeply disturbed by it, but I'm giving up because that's what you do!"  He then shut the door & left!

Which leads me the Cr*ig's list.  I told Popster not to worry, that I was putting everything for sale on Cr*ig's list.  I think his answer was something like "Yeah"  I spent early Weds afternoon putting up all my ads & within 30 mins I had all kinds of e-mails.  One of the things I had posted was the bay window & by 4:30 I had four people wanting to buy it.  I let them know the first one that came over with a deposit owned it.  When Popster walked in the door at 5:00PM I had not only sold the window but the back door along with it. I'm positive now that I didn't ask enough for it but I had to prove my point!

Yesterday Jim stopped by to measure something for the new electrical service....yes this job gets very involved....he asked me if I had picked out the floor tile yet.  Nada!  He then said he would go with us if we wanted & as they were open late last night we took him up on his offer.  (See why I love this guy!)

It really didn't take long to pick out the floor but then we started looking for tile for the back splash.  He suggested that this should be the "wow" factor in the room so we were trying to find something that we could add a design to.  There was another couple wandering around & next thing the husband asked Jim a question!  I looked at him & said "Excuse me, but he belongs to me!  If you ask him questions you have to pay a consulting fee!"  WHOOPS! Thankfully he had a sense of humor.

We ended up finding some natural limestone tile that are so cool & different & of course very expensive.  Popster came walking over as we were trying different layouts & said he really liked it!  I asked him how he felt about me coming in under budget for the floor because this would take us way, way over budget for the back splash!  He said if I liked it he was good with it.  I then said: "Who are you & what have you done with my husband?"

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.


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


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me 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 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…


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

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!"

Love Val
