Everything is going to be OK.

So - looks like I am going, not staying. And I am ok with that. So - watch out high school - here I come. It will be interesting to work with high school kids and to just see how they work.

I got my kitchen cleaned and Andy finished replacing some plumbing in the kitchen (which needed to be fixed) and in a bathroom on the 2nd floor (which didn't need fixing, but we wanted to put in a new faucet and then decided to replace more of the plumbing there).

Right now I am re-modeling the bathroom (the one on it's own ont he 2nd floor - Andy's bathroom). Actually - right now I am typing this as I sit in the massage chair. That bathroom was too girly for Andy - so now instead of pinks and flowers we are going for blues and boats. I had to remove that wallpaper I had put up 3 years ago - shit! removing wallpaper is a pain in the ass. I believe I put in a total of 4 hours just removing the wall paper from that room. The only wall paper left in this house are borders - oh wait - one room has that paintable wallpaper - but that shit is staying there. And I put this stuff around the tub surround - which took 2.5 hours, only because I had to cut nearly every tile, but it looks nice.

I am going to re-finish the cabinet in there - painting it white and probably will put new hardware on it. We're putting in a new light fixture (which Andy had to do some re-wiring for) and a new medicine cabinet (was just a mirror there before) and painting it. Also getting a new shower curtain & hooks, and some new decorations. It should look nice when it is all finished. I primed the walls today.

School starts on 9/1, but for staff we have meetings during the last 1.5 weeks, and when you work in Special Ed. they seem to be all throughout the month of August.

So - there is not really much summer left to enjoy.

Friday, we leave to go camping for 2 days and that's about it for the rest of our summer plans.
