John is better than any installer on the flooring; he is so motivated to get it done. :) I haven't been able to show off my pedicure either and school has been stressful lately. Always is in the spring.

I've forgotten what kind of wood it is. Mine is kempas, a tropical wood that I'm not sure one can even get now. :(

He has done SO MUCH!! It is incredible. (sore back indeed) It is my hardwood on a grander scale. :)

Incredible weather and progress on the house. I can't believe how far John has gotten on the hardwood. It seriously looks just like mine! You will be thankful for that swiffer! What are they using to stain the siding? It looks like what Patt used which made it look a bit darker and wetter, but isn't an actual color. Mine has to be retreated about every 3 years or so to avoid weathering. I love the glass studio; it looks so homey!! Can't wait to visit. :)

I worry that your eye is still watering that much. It seems like it would gradually be getting better. Maybe there is something about this process that I don't understand. Glad that your week is better and I'm also loving the nice weather, although it means YARD WORK. Patt did a lot of the weeding(he enjoyed it) whereas I DO NOT. Love baby George!!

What kind of UW project? Would love to hear more about it, if you're allowed to tell! My staff meetings aren't anywhere near that league although I get very tired of the false bonhomie and pep talks with nothing behind them. Oh, and people using "so and so and MYSELF" incorrectly. (instead of me) It also makes me want to claw out my eyes.

We've had a lovely three days so far--I think it's changing tomorrow though. :(

I'm assuming that he's sure it was effective? Grrrr. I hate it when I have to wait for results; I'm an impatient sort! It is looking back to normal, mostly.

That is quite aqua!! LOL Everything else looks great though. I'm terrified of picking out paint colors because I have no eye. Add that to the distortion of light and size and I would be hopeless!!
Horrible and awful. Yet I read about the 1999 report about the danger of that hillside and the experts who were shocked that houses would be built there, and what a friend mentioned today(they were supposed to leave the trees, but clear cut it instead) and I find myself FURIOUS about the unnecessary loss of lives.

Hate that you are still struggling with the eye issues, after all this time! Bah. Shouldn't the results be instant?? I love what you've picked out and am looking forward to my first visit!

I'm hoping that it works out for you because I don't like the stress level you are under--VERY bad for your health and happiness. I am looking at two more years after this one. It is very doable, even without a part-time job. I am a bit scared of finding enough for myself to do. I'm used to people all day long and lots of stuff to do.
Toggle Commented Mar 21, 2014 on May? June? Maybe? at Kingfisher Cove
Oh, it's lovely and shaping up SO NICELY. Hope your weather is behaving. Ours is up and down here.
Oh, good heavens, T!! Does that feel as bad as it looks??

Lovely--what beautiful thoughts. Patt loved science and remained an atheist to the end of his life. Death didn't faze him, yet it certainly does many religious people. That's ironic, isn't it?

This is why I can't do pinterest; there are just TOO many cool ideas and I would lose myself in them, making a hard decision impossible! I like #3, then #1.

I'm so very glad that it was only things that were damaged (and can be repaired!) and not people. Your dad sounds just like my dad!! We didn't get much of that wind, but it's hailing here right now. Ugh.

That looks fun!! Now I just need an iPhone. :)

Exciting that Nate is there and that his ship is doing what they can to find that plane. There is something definitely off about this plane disappearance/crash. I don't know if it's related to the stolen passports(which should have been flagged somehow) but no distress signal at all? Maybe they'll get more info off the black boxes; are they transmitting?? I haven't heard anything about that.

I am SO GLAD to read this. Chuckles the Clown will never admit it or apologize to you, but he KNOWS he was full of shit. That makes me snicker! I'm also happy that you got some well-deserved recognition. You are amazing at what you do and they don't even realize what great work you produce. Was yesterday a tease? Because today's weather is awful.

I hate that clown more and more. He JUST doesn't get it. I don't understand why such an incompetent idiot is in such a position of power. What is wrong with this world? I know you are ultra responsible, but it's time to walk away from this, get your surgery done(relief from that stupid eye) and let Chuckles the Clown stew in his own juices. (as my parents say!)

It's looking wonderful! Yes, I can see why John's back hurts. We're not 30 any more, are we? ;)

Ab being Ab v E? He went to my church and was a very nice, although quiet guy.(as I remember) Tall too! I had actually heard that he was living down in that area--maybe from Diane? It really is a small world, isn't it?

I would love your gumbo since I'm not a fan of super spicy food. (but I do love Cajun food) Jambalaya is my favorite, although it's not a soup. I was in LA for the Oscars and it was a huge deal, but Ashley and I avoided it mostly. The only film that we've seen of the group was Gravity. I'm with you on the Wolf of Wall Street. No, thanks!

June 25th is my older daughter's birthday and that is SO late to get out of school. Do you think you'll get more snow this weekend? I think we're getting some, but north. (poor Alison in Bellingham has barely recovered from their last hit) Hoping for good news for the school for Sydney. I don't relate well to fanatics of any type--diet, politics, religion, etc. so I better stay off those sites. :)
