Lets start with the last one… Facebook… Man, this was perfect timing to join that time suck! Now I can spend more time on the net!
Seriously, its fun to catch up with people. But to be honest, and I have said this before, if I am not generally keeping in touch or was not friends with you in the past… Why do I care now? I accepted every invitation (friend request?) that came my way. People from Don’s class that were friends with him are the perfect example. I have already cut one of those loose. I dont need to see pictures of them!!! Back then or now!
Well… If they are big Robyn Hitchcock fans or something might be the exception!
The Horse with no name
I think its going to be Marco. Its fun to yell “Polo” evertime she calls for him!
Aiden wanted to call him “Scott”. And is still calling him that no matter what Mom decides.
The Washer Saga
We shopped all day last Saturday to replace our imploding washer. That was a train wreck! Talk about raising our sites! We went from 500.00 machines to 1000.00 machines in the span of a day! In the end, after shopping all day… I called Benson to repair our machine.
We had bought the Amana washer at Benson’s in Pontiac before we were married! That was 1994! Many people have laughed at us for thinking they lasted more than that. The repairman might have well had started laughing when he looked at our washer. He said 450.00 to repair.
Man!!!! Now we are back at square one!
After all of our recent research and genuinely being impressed with Benson’s service when we needed it… We decided to buy a new High Efficiency washer at Benson’s in Pekin. When it comes down to it… Service sells me. I dont want to be dealing with the boneheads at American or some other store that contracts service. (Oh, we know American is filled with boneheads! Wether it be when we have bought projectors or iPods.. They have always managed to mess something up.)
I dont remember the brand… Its fancy… Not top of the line. But, it makes the old dryer look pathetic.
Ang and I were really happy to spend our Christmas money on a new washer! What could be better?
Worked on renovating the basement today. Did some concrete patch around the edges of the floor. Started laying down our “garage floor” tile from Sam’s. Its cheap and durable… And if it gets wet…. I could care less! Hopefully there will be some pictures soon.
