I was thinking I should maybe try to write a post since it’s been a while, but I’m drawing a blank. Which is ridiculous because I haven’t hardly posted at all this summer and a lot of stuff has happened. So I’ll just think of random things to tell you about.
Hm… Let’s see… Oh! I know! We got a new refrigerator last week. Not only did the old one make sad, scary noises, but it dispensed green, spinachy looking flecks in the ice. So on July 5th, while all the appliance stores were having Independence Day sales, we bought Leilani. Leilani is exotic and beautiful. Just look at her.
She was delivered a week and a half ago and we have yet to fill it up. I really should go grocery shopping, but, well, I won’t bore you with my excuses. Right now, anyway.
The biggest problem with Leilani is that I now want new counter tops. Really bad. And if I get new counter tops I’ll need a new sink and faucet and I definitely need new cabinet hardware. And if I’m doing all that I may as well get new light fixtures because I’m not thrilled (or anything resembling thrilledness) with what we have. But just this morning I mailed a check for a portion of Taylor’s freshman tuition. I kissed the envelope before I placed it in the mailbox and said, “bye-bye new counter tops.” Which – bear with me while I do the math –
Taylor’s five year program puts him finished in 2015, Katie will start college in 2013 and let’s be generous and say she finishes in four years, that makes it 2017 which is in seven years –
Right. So that means I probably won’t be seeing new counter tops in this house for another seven years. Unless I was maybe frying bacon in the cast iron skillet. And I was standing on a ladder so the grease splatter wouldn’t reach my face. And I picked up the skillet, but it was hot and greasy and, Oooops! It slipped right out of my hands and fell with a horrible crash onto the formica and, OH NO! It cracked the counter top! Hm… Well it’s something to think about anyway.
And there you have it. An actual post. That’s two for the month of July. Maybe I’ll even do a third.
