Nothing Blog

Why haven't I been blogging? It's not like nothing is going on in my life. I really should strive to write something every day. Well, something that's not completely perverted, as has been my forte lately haha

Had a guy come in today for an estimate on the kitchen. Since the plumbers ripped a big hole in the wall, I figured I ought to get it fixed. Well, I'm sick and tired of how shitty our kichen looks. Half of that god-awful wallpaper that was there when we moved in is hanging off. I hate the white formica counters. I want a new kitchen!!!! So, in a week or so, we should get an estimate for repairing the hole, stripping the wallpaper, repainting it a color that I don't absolutely LOATHE, and installing black, granite countertops. I'm getting giddy just thinking about the countertops. I have to clean/scrub ours multiple times per week because they are crappy and show EVERY speck of dirt. I can't stand it. I'm hoping it won't be some sort of awful amount of money.

Speaking of - David needs $3,000 to go to Africa next summer with Habitat. Oy vey. It's fine - it's a fantastic thing for him to be doing and we can pay in installments, so we'll get it paid for ASAP. Thing is, if he's going to spend $3K to go to Africa, I'm gonna get a new kitchen - I think that's fair.

So, I'll be trying to work some better shifts at work. Perhaps trading for some closing shifts if possible (I'm trying to snag one tonight, but I haven't heard back from J-Net so I'm guessing no lol). I'm gonna go full throttle and get that money for my kitchen!!

Incidentally, for those who don't know - the hole in the kitchen was caused by the upstairs bathroom pipes having rusted through and water was leaking into the kitchen and down into the basement. Nothing like waking up to 'honey, what are your plans for the day, there's water all over the kitchen." And, of course, the same thing happening about 2 weeks later with a second leak. I love owning a house sometimes.

Apropos of nothing, I'm back to being vegetarian. I just can't eat meat anymore. So many reasons, too many to get into here, but suffice it to say, the horse slaughter article I saw the other day capped the decision I'd been waffling on for the longest time.

Hope everyone has a great weekend - I'm gonna get ready for work in a few.
