Hillbilly Baths

Well, the saga of the remodeling continues. My husband forgot to glue one of the pipes, so when he went to turn the hot water on - sploosh.

Ah, running water again

The cold water supply plumbing adventure appears to be a success. The water went on and nothing leaked. The pipes look so much better and the nasty galvanized steel has been removed, hurray!

Day two - Hot water pipes

I slept in my own bed - the bucket and tub of water have been enough for the toilet to function. But I spent another (rather boring at times) day out at my in-laws. I'm glad the older two boys are at their other grandparents for the weekend. They take more energy to entertain.

Day one - Cold water pipes

My older two children are gone for the weekend visiting grandparents who live two hours or so away, so my husband decided to (finally) get the water supply lines done.

One year anniversary

Well it's been one year since I started this blog. Looking back I had some really great posting habits toward the beginning. Then there were months with only a post or two and the months with morning sickness that completely dissapeared.

I would have liked to have gone to my grandmother's, but she's in a nursing home and I have at least two children with runny noses who are hacking and coughing. That's …

Boredom is a subjective thing

I seem to be suffering from fits of boredom lately. Not because I don't have stuff to do, in fact I have a TON of things that could be done... it just all seems boring. Strange eh? I keep thinking that one of these days the snow (yes we actually have a little snow) will melt …
