…better than Wednesday, but not as good as Friday.  Oh tomorrow where are you?



Catching up

When I was away visiting family in Wisconsin in August, my husband decided to repair one of our toilets.  He did not get this accomplished, because when he thought he turned off the water, he really hadn’t.  We had a small flood in our house.

That was six weeks ago.  Yesterday, I finally had the plumber in to repair the toilet and also to fix another toilet that wasn’t quite working efficiently.  Yay!

This morning we had the repair men in to fix the family room ceiling, which collapsed under the weight of the flooding water from the upstairs bathroom.  I came home right when the men were finishing (my in-laws were house sitting while they completed the repairs).  I looked at the work and they missed one area of the ceiling which had obvious water stains and puffing out.  So they had to bring all the equipment back in and repair the area they missed.  It was a little bit of a debacle.

Now we wait for the ceiling to dry, then we need to have it painted.  I am not sure who will do this, I am leaving all of that up to my husband.  He is the one working with the insurance company.  Once the ceiling is done we need to fix the carpet…on it goes.

In other house news we are starting the process of having our house painted.  It is a light yellow.  We are going to keep this color.  The painter power-washed the house yesterday.  Flecks of paint are everywhere on our stoop and sidewalk.  It is an expensive process even though the house is 1/2 brick 1/2 wood.  But it needs to be done.

So we will be a little poorer but our house will be in better shape.




Another Wow moment

I recently came across an on-line article about gaming people upset with something Jimmy Kimmel said on a YouTube post.  He was making fun of people who watch gamers play video games.  Yes you read that right.

I am continually surprised by what is considered entertainment in our modern world.  Yes, I am out of touch with reality.  Playing video games in general confuses me.  From my vast experience in this area :), I have observed that it is mostly a male pursuit.  Mostly.  I get bored after playing a video game once.  So there you go.  What would be a better pursuit of my time, oh, I don’t know, maybe watching paint dry.

Here is the story I mentioned above.



I recently came across this amazing female model who is 60 years old.  She started modeling when she was 50, before that she was a make-up artist for 25 years.  She decided to put her two passions together to create a makeup line for older women.  She says it is pro-age instead of anti-aging.  I like that.  Less is more when you get older is her philosophy when it comes to makeup.

I order her trio for my face.  If you want to check it out click on the photos below.
