Don't go by what's on the breaker panel sticker...

...when you buy an existing home.

Completed the bulk of the ceiling painting tonight! Will need to touch up areas in bright sunlight, its Springtime, I hope that won't be this Summer .

Put in the ceiling lights so I can touch up the paint around them. Went back in the basement and turned the breaker back on, no light???

The only other breaker off is the one labeled dishwasher & disposal; which are not supposed to be on the same circuit BTW. I switch...

Here's Bing. A 4 year old schnauzerX who we picked up at the local humane society this weekend. She's super sweet and hopefully will find her forever home with our pack.

USF1 DOA at Bahrain but F1 2010 is ON! Wheeee!

So sad that USF1 didn't make it to Bahrain. Seems to be a paucity of info about what/why/future of the program. Fia 'investigating'. Hmmm?

Especially sorry to miss Peter Windsor's pit-lane commentary. He clearly knows everyone and anyone seemed happy to talk to him. I was having a hard enough time listening to the post-race interviews without his voice. 'Gilette' we'll see.

Kitchen Cabinets are GONE!!!

I am waiting to take delivery of the built in microwave oven so I can rough in the exhaust vent. Once this is complete then the electrical can be finished. Afterwards can start of tearing out the old floor and completely removing the hall bath to the studs!

Just when you thought...

you had something finished along comes another problem. Spent this evening connecting the cold water supply to the new kitchen rough-in. This went very well. While doing my leak test I started seeing water coming from around the pipe leading to the hall bathroom, Oh no! Low and behold the P-trap is leaking badly! Never ran this sink longer than the time it takes to wash out a paint brush...

So now the hall bath demo has been moved up since I am not going to replace the trap when...
