    Been busy getting ready for the hunting season here. ALWAYS got a little time to check out the hilarious posts in the Lounge though. Some of those folks are doing more than vaping... ya know what I mean?

    Other than that... it's quiet around here...

    All quiet in the land of cheese and beer. I know I've been consumed lately with Dave (that's the BF, BTW) and the Spooky (that's the new kitty) and with finding a new apartment, so I've not been on much lately.

    Gonna be moving to West Allis, BTW - found an apartment there that's in my price range, is a 1BR, and is real close to Dave, so there's one issue off my mind :D

    Anyone wanna help me move...

    It all started so innocent for me,,, my cousin is a Delta faucet rep, and he had given me a new valve to replace an old one that had a teeny tiny leak from the shower head in my tub. That one was made by Gerber (who knew they made faucets, huh??), and I couldn't get parts for it. Well, I had to open the wall to replace the valve, which revealed a bunch of mold behind the old surround, so I thought, as long as I'm doing it, a new surround wouldn't be that bad, until I realized that there was plywood behind the old drywall, and in order to put the waterboard drywall in, I had to take that plywood off, and wouldn't you know it,, it was glued to the studs,,, so,,, it took me two days to get that off and prepped for the new drywall,,, lol. Of course the seam ended up being behind the toilet, so I ended up popping that off, and of course figured I might as well put in a new valve, and new valves in the tank. Then I decided a heater would be nice, but of course I had to put that on it's own circuit, which meant an expansion of the electric service,,, la la la.... I'm still not done with it, but there were other distractions,,, lol.

    Then while trying to hunt down all my tools, I realized how badly organized they were, so that turned into some work organizing tools. (I inherited all my Dad's tools, so I am trying to absorb those, too.) I'd rather have Dad, but it's nice that my sister wasn't interested in them.

    I also hadn't had much chance to do things like trim the shrubs, etc, and there was a tree in the front yard that died,,, and I had to cut that down,,, and I'm looking at another rental house, so I've doing the leg work on that. (I think I'm kind of nuts, because taking care of three places is challenge enough,,, )

    At any rate,,, that's what's been keeping me busy.

    The nice thing about living in a studio apartment (and leaving the old life of hubs, kids, etc...behind) is I don't have a ton of stuff - I really did streamline my life last year. All I've got for big stuff is the bed, the chair, the dresser. Most of it is my clothes, some dishes, and PV stuff (of course).

    Hmmm - maybe asking you guys to help me move isn't such a good idea...I might end up a little light in gear :D

    @Harmony - yup - yer nuts, no doubt about it (that's why we get along so well :p) It's the simplest things that end up being the most gigantic of projects, no?

    I would have been here sooner if I could have found this place! Geesh!!
    And now I realize I don't even have access to emoticons? I don't have much time to come on & now they want me to play hide n seek with everything? Yeah....right....

    Schweet!! Closer to me!! :D why do I think the next meeting is going to be "hey! while you are driving to my new place, can ya'll swing by the old and see how much you can get in your car?" LOL! ;)

    Drat! You're on to us! I'm not really minding waiting for Nuck to get his stuff worked out before I can order, but I could really use a good fistpack about now ;)
