Prelude to a KissSunroom

It was probably about a year & a half ago when my constant harping gentle reminders to Popster about how I would love a sun room finally made an impact & we had a contractor come over to give us an estimate.  It took Popster about 4 months to recover from sticker shock & needless to say the project got put on the back burner!

Fast forward a few months & the nagging gentle reminders started & it was decided the bathroom needed to be done first....not my idea....so we have a beautiful bathroom!

I'm sure you all remember the sunroof affair with my car, at which point Popster wanted to buy me a new car.  Being the stubborn reasonable person that I am, I held out for the sun room instead!

Fast forward a few more months &, I'm sure you can all guess, I ever so nicely brought up the subject again........if nothing else I'm persistent!

Now the argument disagreement gets even more interesting as Popster decides we should do the kitchen first.  Okay I'll keep jumping thru the hoops if that's what it will take.  We found a local contractor who came over to look at what we wanted to do.  We had the following conversation:

Jim:  "Why is your sink here facing a blank wall instead of over there under the window?"


Me:  "I thought it would be too hard to move it!  Can you do that?"


Jim:  "I can do anything you want!"


Me:  "Who are you & where have you been all my life????"


At that point Popster starting hyper-ventilating as he knew he was in trouble, especially when I asked Jim to move in!

It, of course, is turning into a much bigger job that we thought as he plans to gut the entire room, walls & ceiling etc!  We were originally on his waiting list to have this started the middle of Feb but we have been moved up & he will be here the end of next week. Yikes!  Good thing I didn't take a long time to get a design drawn up & ordered cabinets early enough.

I will do some before & after pics but meanwhile I have to get my butt in gear & start emptying all my cabinets.....Popster will be eating some strange meals for the next week!  Also I am putting a lot of things on Craig's List which will be another whole other post on that experience!

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!"
