I have an idea for a family photo

Recently the Big Sis posted a funny link about an awesome shirt. A web comic that I like reading had a reference to said shirt that I thought was priceless. I'm now considering getting the whole family some of the shirts for a family photo that will be worthy of this blog. Enough with the links.

More from around the house

I spent Saturday working on all sorts of project around the house. I started off putting some shelfs up in the closet in the office/nursery. I was able to clean up some of the boxes and other clutter sitting on the floor.

Next I moved on to installing dimmer switches in our bathrooms. These are the best ever, you don't have to have the light blindingly bright at night or any other time of day for that matter.

Now this is the stage of my blog where electrician should look away. I installed an outlet in the area Kinsey has set up for sewing in the basement. She had run several extension cords to get power where she needed it and I thought a proper outlet would be more appropriate. I added the splitter because she needed more than two outlets.

Many pictures, shelves and other decorations were put up as well. It's really starting to look like our home here.

And the home improvement begins

We spent a week in our new home before heading off for a week of vacation and now reality is setting in. There are no big projects to do just yet, but I've officially started on one of the little ones. Today while I was home for lunch, I started patching small holes from nails and other such things in the walls. The best was the entryway from the living room to the Kitchen. The corner bead had been hit pretty hard and dented. It was covered with scotch tape and painted very poorly. I wanted to get at least some of the patching done at lunch so I could get it better filled after work. I went to all the effort of patching and painting at the old place just to do it again in the new place. Once the patching and touch up is complete I'll move on to replacing the kitchen sink and faucet. It's just more fun than I should be allowed to have
