So it's Sunday night and we're all in our usual spots. Natalie's in the bed, John's playing WoW, and I'm hanging out on the couch. I've got a lot to share tonight, so grab a coke and get comfortable.
We had a bit of Deja vu' going on this weekend. Friday morning we had another visit from the plumber. Seems we didn't completely get the problem fixed. All is well now. (I hope) We had our monthly craft night that evening and for whatever reason I just couldn't get in gear. I got all of 2 pages done. One of them I'm not happy with and probably will re-do it. The other one I completed had been brewing around in my head. I used a pencil lines sketch for it. Here's the result of that. I started the latest scrapjacked page, but didn't get it finished, so I'll share that one later.
I was one of the last four to leave that night. I get all my junk loaded into my Jeep, hop in and it won't crank. Now if you remember just a week ago we went through this. I had a brand new battery in that car. So I jump out of the car and ask the other gals to hang on because the car won't start. Luckily I had jumper cables and luckily at least one of us knew how to jump a car off (thanks April!). But let me paint a picture for you. First off it was about 12:20 am by this time and the area we were in is not the best place to be hanging out in the parking lot in the middle of the night. Secondly, my lift springs on the hood don't work. So we had 2 people holding up the hood while the other two were cranking the cars. We got the thing started but it would die every time I let off the gas. Thanks to my sweet friend Alissa for taking me home. The back hatch wouldn't lock because the door paneling and relay are not connected right now due to the window issue I still have. The window's rigged up until the part comes in. I was wondering if when we went to pick it up Saturday if it might be up on blocks.
Well, Saturday morning I had planned to attend a Ladies Day at another area church and then realized this conflicted with some plans I had made with my brother. Throw in the fact that I also needed to take care of my car on blocks. As luck would have it my brother is Mr. Fixit. I don't care if we're talking cars, computers, sinks, roofs.. whatever.. he always knows what to do. So I knew he could go with me to take care of the car after we went to the estate auction we had planned to attend. Why are we attending an estate auction you ask? Because my loving brother has agreed to help me get my extra bedroom aka junk room, cleaned out and turned into a scrapbook room. AND he's building me a work space. So we were looking for a piece of furniture that could be used to construct what we have in mind. We didn't find anything that would work at the auction, so we then went to Target to look at their organization stuff. After listening to me describe what I wanted, looking at some of the stuff at Target, he sketched what he is going to build. This is my new table: If we don't find an old desk to modify, looks like we'll just be making a trip to Home Depot for the lumber. Ok.. I realize this is getting long and if you're still reading you deserve a medal. But let me just say I am so excited about my scrap space. I will post some before and after pics when the project is complete. And I have plans to do a RAK to celebrate the Grand Opening of my space.
Saturday evening we celebrated my Grandad's 81st Birthday. Happy Birthday PawPaw! There's nothing like some good home fried fish and hushpuppies. We then surprised him with a cake and ice cream party this afternoon. A busy weekend for sure. And if you're wondering what became of the car.. it cranked right up when we went to get it. Seems there is a bad connection on the battery. Thank goodness it's just a $3 fix for whatever the part is that's got to be replaced. And I'm so glad my brother.......>................ is such a handy man..
Edited to add.. I just found out my local radio station is having a cutest baby contest. Well of course mine is the cutest. LOL I'm thinking I may submit a picture of her but I have so many I need your help. Of the pictures I've posted of her over the last few weeks which is your favorite? All right all you family and friends that read my blog.. time to come out of hiding and help me pick a picture! :) Let me know which is your favorite in the comments. Thanks!!
