Back From Break

Now, doesn’t that feel better? All rested up? See I told you a break would feel good. And a rest was important because we have a lot coming up here at DRY Ink. It is probably time for a state of the family address around here, it’s been over a year. Yeah I’m a slacker....

    Well, I’m glad you’re alive. Life is definitely never dull. But, Erika, you are my hero. The end. (Do I have to sing our song to remind you?)

    What movie did you see? Isn’t biting off more than you can technically chew–and then successfully chewing it–so very entertaining?

  • ErikaMarch 6, 2009 - 8:56 am

    Rae, thanks, no song necessary.
    MM, I saw International. It was meh. As for the last part, I’ll reserve judgment til I actually chew things successfully.

Things My Shower Has Taught Me

I hang cement board about as well as I hang dry wall = crappily. Consistency baby. You can fit approximately 2 adults or 1 adult and 2 children comfortably in the shower. But 2 adults are a lot more fun. Shower p-traps smell like rotten eggs. If you drop a very important stainless steel screw...

      Halaluja! You finished it! Big congrats!

      That bathroom looks great. Was it worth it?

    • RachelJanuary 12, 2009 - 2:53 pm

      Well, did you name the shower since you did give birth to? It needs a name. Congrats honey.

      Okay, I just showered in it for the first time this morning, (had to wait 24-48 hrs for the sealer and caulk to cure) so now I can respond.

      Cherie, thanks!

      Jessica, prior to this morning I would have said a big fat NO, But after that shower? YES. I think I saw God in there with me.

      Ray, I’m just going to call it ‘damn it’, the same as the rest of the cherubs. Thanks.

      It looks great! It must feel great to have it finished. I’ll be over later…don’t worry, I’ll bring my own towel.

    So how’s it going. Me? meh? I’m fine just a little busy. What’s that? I haven’t been posting? Well I said I was taking a break. Hey don’t catch an attitude with me. WE WERE ON A BREAK! And there’s the shower thing. Yeah, you remember that little shower enlargement project started in March of...

      The fireplace mantle isn’t done because I’m not there to stare at it. It moves at my command. Just remember that. :o) Good luck with the projects, Sweet Pea.

      Almost done is way better than done–you still have all that anticipation. Woo-hoo! 😉

    Displaced Spices

    After Katrina I wrote a post (joking) about how we were the only ones with power, so everyone brought their food over and my Diet Dr. Pepper had been relegated to the counter. I requested a wine frig to store my nectar. (Have you ever had warm DDP?) Well, Jeff latched onto this idea with...

      That’s a great idea to have a wine fridge. I may recommend that to Bob for our Mormon Bar downstairs.

      Seriously, how great would that be for my beloved Diet Coke. Maybe it’s better that I don’t have one because then I’d love it so much I’d want to marry it and my priorities are screwed up enough as it is.

      I’m with you on DDP deserving a (cool) place of honor in the kitchen. And as far as the spices, due to Hubby’s rearranging/remodeling disorder, my spices are spread throughout several cupboards across the kitchen–some of them on shelves I can’t possibly reach. This means that every time I need a spice a great deal of whining, stomping and door slamming ensue until Hubby comes in with a big sigh and tracks down whatever it is I need. Surely there’s a better system!
