I hung new door #2 today. The process went a little smoother today. They still need to be painted though.

Anyway, Iím of HD to pick up more supplies. Iím tempted to get new faucets and light fixtures but she wants to pick them and has told me to wait until the new tubs are in.
You guys still thinking of selling?

Not me, but it still comes up every so often. As far as Iím concerned itís off the table until Joey graduates.

I replaced the tie-rods on the jeep yesterday. The old ones had a couple hundred thousand miles on them. Now I just need to get it and the truck front end alligned.

It was a nice sunny day yesterday so I slapped a couple quick thin coats of paint on the new bedroom door. Now it doesnít close. I need to take it down and rout the hinge recesses a little deeper. It doesnít look like a good day to paint the two remaining doors from the upstairs hallway but at least I can paint baseboards and the door frame in the bedroom.

First I need to get up on the folding ladder and tape up the hallway bathroom ceiling. Iím tempted to slap a coat of paint on the master bathroom too. Itís all faded.

I still hate painting though, and Iím taking the weekend off. I have another bike ride to attend tomorrow and have to be up early.

My daughter had 4 wisdom teeth taken out yesterday so I have spent yesterday and today doting over her. She should be ok in a day. This is good practice for me. My son is getting his out in two weeks too!

Laughed at Pippa stressing because homeschool went till 415 this afternoon.
Those kids on the bus are just now walking up the street. They got on the bus an hour 1/2 before we started and they have homework.
She got it easy.
Broke the foremast on my ship in progress. Standing rigging was all on and tight. I was fiddling with a yard that was out of position.
Spent free time fashioning a new one. Might get the yards lashed on it.

Usual food shopping, made meatballs and pasta for the kids dinner, took my daughter to the dentist then, DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Took my daughter to the gynecologist. Wife was out of town. I made it out alive. While looking around the exam room with all the usual "organ models" on display I could not get one of Dice Clay's lines out of my head. "Have you seen a Vagina up close? It's frightening!"
