Unadulterated Crazy


My new microwave/hood really knows how to work the light!

Father-in-law came over and almost single-handedly put up this bad boy last night. Hubster was out for work, so it was just him and very un-handy me. Still, I managed to screw in little output panels, hold the weight of the microwave up on one side and dust-buster after every step involving drilling cabinetry and walls. Good times. It took several hours, but it's up and it's working just dandy. Except for the minor blockage of having a young bird family in the duct outside. ONE PROBLEM AT A TIME!

In completely unrelated news, I felt compelled to commit to pixels the death of a notion of myself. Apparently I am not, as I thought, afraid of color:



Next myth to tackle: can I wear the full skirts that all those boho/mid-century fashion freaks tell me are too popular to ignore anymore? It remains to be seen . . .

And now y'all have proof of my unending randomness, which probably stems from the overarching insanity.

Are there FIVE burners on that stove?! Two big in front - three small kettle sized in the back?! If so, that's ingenuity. Think of the sauces you could make ...

I gave a Spanish III student our Span Composition book to study from today. I harkened back to never actually going to that class, but also remembering your awesome diligence and perspicacity. YOU should be the highly paid, well-respected, and unharried pedagogical professional!

quotable hannah - There are four burners on the stove and the one in the middle of the back row is a warming zone. It's awesome!

mair - You know, I was thinking of posting an update and I just kept forgetting. The stronger anti-biotic worked, I think, so it's gone down completely. NOT DEAD YET!
