My Hero

May 25th, 2016 · 1 Comment

The Boy Scout just wrapped up his Kindergarten year!  Six years old already and moving onto first grade in the fall. How did that happen?

Mom and Dad have their hands full with this one! Even in Kindergarten he had tons of homework and major adjusting to school rules and appropriate behavior.  After finally settling into a groove, he greatly improved over the year. It was a lot of work, I am told.

Then, the school sent home the Kindergarten yearbook. As Mom and Dad read several inspirational, gooey-loving, blessed-children testimonials (written by other parents at the beginning of the year), they came upon this one:

Scout reminds me everyday how great it is to just enjoy being a kid.

BEST ART

May 24th, 2016 · No Comments

I had to work all day Saturday so Hubby went up to Rehab by himself for the day. He said he enjoyed some “Me Time“.

However, I was able to go up with him on Sunday and discovered what “Me Time” actually meant…

The Old Man installed his favorite (and only) art project during his Me Time; the TV and antenna. Pretty funny, as we rummaged through the channels we found a Korean TV channel, several Hispanic channels and apparently a channel that only plays The Aviator all day every day. I’d prefer a Die Hard or Lethal Weapon channel myself, but then again, I would never shut the damn thing off, so it’s probably for the best.

A great big shout out and thanks to my SIL for the TV donation! Free is always best!

As for Sunday, together we installed the baseboard moldings and set up a few pieces of furniture. And as Memorial Day weekend is quickly approaching, we hope to be able to host a few friends and enjoy the space for the long weekend before we have to get back to work on the remainder of the rooms.

Happy Memorial Day!  #neverforget

And so it begins

End of day one. Half way!

Last piece of the puzzle!

End of day two!

End of day two!

 

Laying laminate floors is not an easy job, especially when the person doing most of the work is too old and too left handed! Lefties do everything backwards! Yes, they do. I know this because I am right handed and I do everything the right way. Duh.

However, the Southpaw Construction Company (a one man crew) did a fine job!

I gotta hand it to the Old Man though, he hung in there even when he was ready to fall over dead. I let him use me as a personal ladder every time he had to climb down to the floor and then every time he had to climb back up to his feet. Poor guy. He’s a trooper.

We were so proud of ourselves just for finishing, that every person who walked by on the dock, we grabbed and pulled onto the houseboat and screamed, “Look at those floors!” It didn’t even matter that we were so much more excited about showing off our hard work to complete strangers than they were about being personally assaulted and pulled onto a creepy houseboat, “Just look at that craftsmanship!”

Ok, so enough reveling in our major personal accomplishment. Back to the real world. Next is the addition of baseboard moldings and broken window issues…

But just look at those floors!
