Yeah I'm Bad, But Not Racist


I admit it. I've been bad. I've neglected my blog like the red-headed step-child. But I have a good excuse. It's the in-laws fault.

In mid-June Suz's family will be coming to stay with us when her cousin Vicki, and Ryan, get married. For that event I will require two working bathrooms to prevent raunch build-up and eliminate lengthy shower queues. So the clock is ticking to get the excrement disposal unit working in the basement.

Using my handy demolition skills, I've converted the once useable basement into a dump. A dumpster will soon fill our driveway so I can haul away the piles of debris which currently make it almost impossible to walk through the basement.

The floor was poured in two separate pours, so we had a giant gap that my dad and I filled with the-most-depressing-shade-of-grey-you've-ever-seen concrete. It will be a nice contrast to the completed floor, which will be the most exciting shade of beige carpeting you've ever seen.

Tonight we indulged in a shopping spree, acquiring large quantites of white drywall, pink insulation, yellow lumber, and white Kohler products. A nice 32" bathroom door and a 32" French door for the laundry room rounded out the load. Not bad as far as diversity goes.

Thanks for stopping by everybody, including the mysterious Bella.

Black kitties! They look just like sisters, eh? And no worries about the red-headed child, step or any other kind. It will receive lots of attention. Now if Jodster were around, that'd be a different story.

I wish I was handy enough to do that sort of thing. All I really want to do is be able to pour a cement slab for a patio space in my back yard. I hate our crummy wooden deck and want a slab instead.

The only time I've ever punched anyone was shortly after my mom remarried (a puke) and some guy at the bar called me a redheaded step child...i had enough beer in me to cross punch...he went flying...no one called me RHSC after that!

true story!
and i don't even drink anymore!
