home improvements

thank you to all for your congrats. i still pinch myself that i'm actually starting a new job in less than 2 weeks. i'll feel part of the world again instead of surfing the internet for 8.5 hours a day. sometimes 8 when i take a long lunch.

My brother, Eric, is staying at my house for a few days and doing home improvements for me. i cannot tell you how awesome that is. i pulled my carpets like 2 years ago and left the shaggy ends in the hallways and doorways....he put down carpet tacking yesterday which makes a huge difference. then he put in a new kitchen light, Monday we ordered charcoal floor tile for the kitchen


and also bought two solar tubes.


one for the kitchen and one for the living room. it'll look HOT! if i were rich, my roof would be made of glass. love that look!

anyway, hope everyone had a great christmas and hope everyone has an awesomely fun new year!~

no. but, oddly enough, i do not feel compelled to take time off. i might do like friday or seomthing. since i'm working only 4 hours anyway.

yes they are. i thought my brother would have them in today since it stopped raining but my tub gave him more trouble than we thought. it's not leaking naymore!!! yay.

ever notice how hard the verfication words are? and then when you screw up they give you like a really easy one?

Nice to have a handy man around.

Me, I have to beg friends of friends. AND pay them. Whatever. I quit.
