    Well, we finally got the last of the Pergo fixed up (trim mostly) and a couple
    of other things in the kitchen. The carpet went in smooth with zero problems
    and looks greyt! These two crews did a very good job!

    TOTD: Yes! There is one this time! :D What home improvement project are you working on or have planned in the near future?

    Going to be nice here today, sunny and in the upper 80's.

    Oh...we still have to put some stuf back in the bedrooms. :(:D

    After eighteen years in our house, we can finally say we have no projects planned for the future. Last year we spent a fortune on new windows, and it was money well spent. This year, we're letting the bank account recover a little.

    Overcast and high 70's today.

    I started a week long deployment yesterday and am posting this in the hotel before heading over to the Disaster Recovery HQ, or, as we like to call it, the stinky basement with the phones. :D

    We should be shifting to a new headquarters later today. 30 counties affected and what was lake Delton is now the Delton creek. Flooding, tornado and straight-line wind damage a-go-go. I am working Damage Assessment this time around, so as soon as things get spun up today I should be going out with the first DA teams trying to get a survey done on just what got wrecked.

    Gonna be a long week here.

    TOTD
    Thank Ghue, all the renovation for the year was done in March.

    Next big project is converting our deck into a four season room and using the existing deck parts to form a new one running off the north side of that.

    My project is to move!

    I rented this house when I first moved here; thinking it was very temporary and everything changed. Now I want something more comfortable.

    Very warm today (for us) but it's going to be temporary before a cold front comes in for the rest of the week. Yay! Global Warming! I'm hoping to finish my tear down after work today so I can tag the trees Mr. Snaps will destroy.

    TOTD: Right this minute Mr. Snaps has torn apart my composting area and is in the process of expanding it and "improving" it. I'm not entirely sure what that means but I do know that at the end of all I will have a composting area that will handily survive a nuclear strike. :D

    I am finishing the revamp of the front bed.

    Fortunately when I bought the house a couple of years ago the previous owners had already put in all new windows, new siding, new AC and furnace, new wall double oven, new Jenaire stovetop. But it badly needed painting in the living room, dining room, and 2 bedrooms. I had all that done, plus the front porch mudjacked.

    Since Garrett moved here, we've done the Pergo, carpeting and finally have window coverings (wooden blinds) on the living room and dining room windows.

    The next project, but will wait a while, will be new countertops. Those white formica ones are looking pretty bad. Also need a new sink. Other than that, don't think the house is worth spending too much more on.

    Linda, those windows really help. Our utility bills are very low.

    Sunny and hot here today. I'm looking forward to our monsoon season. Hope it arrives soon.

    TOTD: I live in an apartment. I'm really not allowed to re-model.

    TOTD: We've recently finished repainting both the guest bath and master bathrooms....and the guest bath had a new mirror and medicine cabinet installed (by me, no less...woohoo!). Eventually we want to have the outside of the house repainted. And of course our yard has been an ongoing project. We've been doing some work to it (planting stuff, added an oval border of stone blocks around two oaks in the back, putting in mulch, etc etc) as well as "weed & feed" but we need more damn rain!
