I've had so many things I've wanted to blog about but couldn't get in.
I'm sad, sad, sad that I can't make RWA this year but here in my little neck of the woods it's The Year of the House. I have 8 years worth of wear and tear I'm having fixed all within a month or so period of time starting last week including:
- New screen door
- Ceiling checked for water leak (thankfully there wasn't any) BUT
- Ceiling painted
- Railing to basement fixed
- New lock on back door
- Various cupboards and drawers unstuck
- New front porch step with railings
- New backyard fence
- New aluminum siding and last but biggest project
- BRAND NEW BATHROOM!!
While all this stuff really needs done, in an odd way a lot of it dates back to the broken leg. The basement railing kept coming off so I was nervous going down those stairs. - flashback time. Even though I did have quite a hoot with my stoned on pain killer broke fibula/tibia, I don't really want to go through it again. I had NO rail on the front porch so I stopped using it completely. And since I much prefer showers to baths and was getting more and more freaked out stepping up and into the tub, a walk-in shower became more and more appealing. And since I was getting a new shower and my Reno guy told me I needed a new toilet and I've hated the vanity for years, I decided to go for broke.
So with all that, the added expense to head to San Antonio was just too much. But I will be thinking of all my peeps, wishing I was there with you all.
Well I've got my feet back in the blog water again so I'll end with my signature sign off for now.....
'til later and since I wrote my new password down this time I won't be gone as long.
