What a weekend. It WAS work, work, work. But, oh so worth it.
A's dad was in town this weekend and so was mine! It was Dad heaven! Dad's are great for many reasons, one of which is that they offer help, advice and skills with home repair.
See TV Dads for more dads. Except our dads are married dads. Remember...always give props to the moms too.
So it was off to Home Despot (yes, I spell it that way) for some supplies and then some little "fixes".
Before the weekend, I had picked at the house again. (I know, I know.) I wanted to know what was under THIS paste down vinyl tile in the bathroom.
I was rewarded!! Well, kind of. The original hex tile IS under there. And it isn't broken or cracked. But...there is a gooey layer of black tar between us and the tile. Which will require removal. Which will not be easy. This little patch...still needing to be whitened...took me an hour until I figured out that the *SILENT PAINT REMOVER* could help. More about that in another entry...
Nothing ever comes easy, eh?
Meanwhile, after a few warm days, the steam heat is coming back on and it sounds like little gnomes are sloshing around and firing off cannons in the radiators. It is SO LOUD! The dog is scared half to death...signing off for now... (take cover, Coco!)
