Life at the Thomas home has quieted down a bit. I dare not say it is boring though. I dropped my earring down the sink and have begged Trent to get it out for me for about 4 days now. In all honesty, I looked through all of my earrings and could not figure out for the life of me which earring fell to its death, but I just knew I had knocked one in. I have not used my sink since that tragic morning and in the meantime have made it as inconvenient as possible for Trent to use his sink so that he would know how important it was for him to get that darn earring out of the drain. I thought this might expedite the process, but its been 4 days and he is just now getting to it…..
Regardless, he saved my little earring and I’m not sure that I will ever wear it again…It was a little silver stud and it is corroded from being in the drain for 4 days….figures. Enough about my poor earring though!
Trent is also switching out the light above my sink as we speak! The light bulb went out yesterday and I think he saw this as a perfect opportunity to update the lighting. As to not annoy him anymore tonight, I will just wait and get pictures later instead of getting action shots of my Manly Handyman Husband switching out light fixtures. 🙂
We have a new resident at the Thomas home. His name is Greg, and he is my beloved cat. Now hold on, all you cat haters…Greg is really a dog trapped inside a cat’s body–God love him. He begs at the table, comes when called and even plays fetch! I like cats OK, but Greg…..I love. I’m definitely more of a dog person. He has been staying at my parents’ house until we got things a bit more settled. I am just so glad to have him back! I have attached a picture so you can see him. He is so stinkin’ cute
Trent’s Grandpa replaced all the shelves in our pantry for us. We painted them and got them in this week, so I finally have my food organized! No door, but hey, I’m not complaining. My pantry is no longer on my counter! Trent also decided to take the ugly light fixture down from our kitchen. It was an automatic opener to the room. It feels so much bigger without it.
Last but certainly not least on the home renovation update….I GOT NEW KITCHEN APPLIANCES!!! Just in time for Thanksgiving! Friday afternoon we went to Hahn Appliances, where, by the way, they are having a ginormous early Black Friday sale. We got a new vent hood, built-in microwave, stove top, and oven and the nicest man came out and installed them on Saturday.They are so beautiful. I cannot wait to break them in this week. I have a few pictures of them, too. We are having a few issues with the stove top, though. The lady who owned the house before us never had an outlet installed to plug the stove top into…she just lit the gas herself every time. Seeing as this house is being renovated to sell, I don’t think we have that same option. For now, until we get an electrician out here, an extension cord will have to do. Also, the stove top hangs down much lower than the previous one. This makes it hard for the top drawers to fit–what a pain! We will have those drawers shaved down sometime this week or next so that we can finish putting the cabinets together.
The house will be put on hold this week for Thanksgiving. What a great time to enjoy friends and family! We are headed down to Trent’s Dad’s cabin for part of the week and then will be back for a grand Thanksgiving feast on Saturday. What are your plans? Whatever they are, be sure to pack on the pounds, have fun and cherish the time with your family. Happy Thanksgiving, all!
