Home Improvement, Somewhat.

Oy. That was a slog.  I've been keeping a low profile the past several weeks, as I have been engaged on the home front; transitioning into the end of school, fighting raccoons, and embarking on a fairly major home improvement jag. Whew! It's been exhausting....

We’re In the Money!

It occurred to me the other day, whilst mentally turning over everything in my life that needs to be fixed, changed, refurbished or redone, that I really only have one problem;  A lack of enormous piles of cold, hard cash.  I can't tell you what a relief...

Frackin’ Raccoons.

For the past several weeks we have been trying to oust a family of raccoons from our roof. It hasn't been going very well.  My sister called it immediately when I complained to her about the aggressiveness of this particular trespasser. "Baby raccoons." she...

  • Pam on There are RULES, dangnabbit!Wow! Who is the noble cobbler? Mine took six weeks to repair the strap on my bag that I carry every day. I am aware that your cobbler didn't say that they would be ready in two days, he just agreed that she could pick them up.
