Its been a record breaker weekend!
This is my backyard patio table. Also, note the level of snow on the chair next to it. Yup, I didn't measure, but since the snow did go up to my knees, I am going to say, we got around three feet of glorious snow. Sigh. Merry Christmas to me!
I know that young people must have jobs. They have to start somewhere, but really, there has got to be some sort of intelligence test or guidelines before hiring people. Really.
We bought some crown molding a while ago. I thought we would have enough. Turns out, as we were getting ready to put it up, we found we are about 5 ln feet short. Just 5. How annoying is that? So, I called Lowes and ended up speaking with a young man (I am guessing hoping he was young). The conversation amazed me.
Me: "Hi do you carry any Trim-Tex crown molding?" Lowes: "What's that?" "A brand of crown molding. We are a couple of feet short." "Is that like a brand of baseboard?" "Well, yeah, sort of. Crown molding is decorative wood strip that goes along the ceiling." "Oh, okay. So what kind of tile do you need?" "Tile?" "To go along the ceiling, right?" "Uh, I don't need tile.

I was going rather slowly and daydreaming while I did it, lazily looking forward to sleeping in my bed. Faye had begged Jeffrey to sleep with her because she couldn't sleep, and so I would get to sprawl to my heart's content.
Suddenly, I heard the doorknob to the kitchen door rattle. Then I heard the unmistakable sound of a shoulder heaving against the d…
We don't see our friends as often as we would like. Something about us being the only ones married and with kids. Whatever. So any chance to have them all come play is a welcome one. Since Jeffrey just had a birthday, we decided to have a barbecue tonight.
