Probably, it's that time of year when a million kids come into the program, as social workers try to keep them at home until school ends if that's possible. I hope he's 15+ as then he would be in the summer work program the office does, and I would get the days to myself, and my horse. :)


My Mum is coming out here in 2 weeks, I haven't seen her for 3 years, so I can't wait.


We are remodeling our bathroom, it's been an ongoing project for 3 years now. Brad won't have someone else come in and help, he wants to do it himself, so it's a weekend only project.

Thanks FC, it's been a lot of work as Brad is super (rear end) about things. If it's not perfect, he won't accept it. Sadly too, it's all oak, so it's cost me more than I want to think about.

The shower is stupidly huge, it's like a 3 person shower. We had a shower over a bathtub before, and he hated that the shower curtain would touch him, as he is a larger man. So he went a little overboard making sure that wouldn't happen with this one.

We are planning a heated floor and all kinds of fancy stuff that doesn't make any sense at all as our house is still in our crappy town, so we won't see the return on it.

Whatever makes him happy right. :)

Have I mentioned how much I love coffee? And I especially love that first cup with cream and sugar. I don't even care if the creamer has beaver butt in it

Yesterday I figured out why I was having trouble motivating myself to get out to the barn and clean/paint stalls when normally I can't wait to get out there. It was because I had finished all the new easy stuff and the older stalls had to have a good cleaning before I can start painting them. I had tried cleaning them with vinegar, bleach and just soap and water but it just wasn't cutting it. Yesterday I finally went out to get started and I remembered I had this cleaner I picked up at DG and had not tried yet. Guess what? It worked wonderfully! I still have to scrub but not near as hard or as long. So, I've got my motivation back yeah!! And the stalls I got clean yesterday look so nice. I did have to run back to the Dollar store for more cleaner, got 2 gallons and I bet I use every bit of it. It's worth it though to get this little project done. So, that was my exciting day.

Ill bite, what the h---- is beaver butt. And why would it be in your coffee. Is that a trend still to arrive on our sleepy pacific shores

Ha! This has me laughing so hard right now.

Yes read the article, there was a thread about it a few weeks ago.

The other day I was at the store with my daughter who also drinks coffee, and I told her to get some creamer for our coffee and she picked it up but then paused and said "now wait a minute, is this the one with beaver butt in it?" I couldn't quit laughing because she said it with such seriousness. I and wondered what the people around us were thinking.

Alex, I had to go with a smaller tub so my husband could have a large shower. It's not as big as yours but bigger than it needs to be. Makes no sense to me either. You can soak in a tub but how long are you really going to be in a shower?? Guess that's just my opinion. My FIL puts huge showers in their house with two shower heads! I have a hard enough time getting one set where I want it I'd be in there all day if I had to adjust two. LOL

I hate when the shower curtain touches me if I'm at a hotel but don't really think about it at home. And I'd much rather have a curtain that is easily washed or replaced than those doors that are such a pain to clean. We have very hard water here. I love that the hotels are starting to use those curved shower curtain rods, that has to be one of the best inventions ever.

Good Morning all!

Had to giggle this morning......when I arrived at school this morning the tradition continues.....the day before graduation the seniors camp out in tents in the front yard of the school! It poured last night too!

Heard from my horse guy Kris last night. He said to give him a call when I return...he's got plenty of horse not even listed on-line!

Asked him...how is it that horses go in a day? He said that some people will simple buy them sight unseen, and have them shipped to their homes! Wow!

When I redo our bathroom I am building a bigger shower but the wall with the shower heads will be tapered inward to make the water always spray away from the entrance and there will be no door at all.
My wife hates the clear shower curtain I bought for our shower.lol I told her I would keep replacing it with a clear one if she tried to replace it with a dark one. Its still there. The positive for her is I can't sneak up on her with the freezing bowl of water now. I find it a fair trade off. Hehehe

I would much rather spend 5 minutes in the shower rinsing the dirt off of me than soak in a tub filled with the dirt I'm washing off. How can you say you are clean when you get out if you are soaking in the water that is holding the muck you just washed off? I never understood that concept.
