For Your Fun And Enjoyment 

Here’s a bit of an update on how things have been going:

The living room furniture arrived and looks fantastic! The colors of the furniture go well, but contrast nicely, with the wall color.

The bedroom furniture arrived also. We painted the bedroom blue and it makes the wood of the furniture jump right off the wall. It’s the biggest bedroom we have ever had. We put a king size bed, a full dresser, and two large nightstands in it and there is still plenty of room to wander around in there. I am used to tiny little bedrooms so this one is pretty much tickling me to death.

The appliances, now that is another story! The guys came Friday with the stove and dishwasher. The dishwasher had a large dent in the door so I refused it. Then when they brought the stove in it was white instead of black. I told them it was supposed to be black and they actually asked if I was sure Ap0k had ordered a black one. I asked why, if I had a black refrigerator already, and had ordered a black dishwasher, then why on earth would he have ordered a white stove? They tried to get me to accept it anyway but I refused it. We paid extra for black and I want black! Ap0k went to the store the next morning and they brought us a new black stove, but had no one to hook up the gas. They are bringing the dishwasher on Monday and they are supposed to be sending someone along who can hook up both the stove and the dishwasher correctly. I can’t even use the kitchen sink now. The first guys unhooked the old dishwasher and left the connection to the drain open. That means when I run the water in the sink it drains into the cabinet. Of course I did not realize that until after I ran the water! I will say this for Home Depot; it was not their fault that Maytag delivered a dented dishwasher, but they are replacing it themselves. They are trying to make the stove issue right too, plus they gave us a $50 credit for our troubles.

I have gotten the dressing room red finally. It took 3 coats of paint on the wall and 4 coats on the edges, but it’s finally done. Now I have to wait a week for the paint to set up so that I can tape it up for the white parts.

The hallway and stairway has one coat of paint already and I will do the final coat today. I chose a yellowish-khaki color. LOL! Some people would say that a paint store had exploded in my house, but it’s not near as bad as it sounds. All of the colors really do work together. Each room flows nicely into the next and while the entry room would look silly next to the dressing room, you can’t see them both at once from anywhere. Any room that can be seen from any other, goes together.

We still can’t find a 5’x8’ pub table for the dining room. Apparently the largest anyone makes is 5’x5’? Ap0k is going to call some of the Amish furniture stores to see if he can get one made. 5’x5’ would be too small for the room. 5’x8’ is as small as you can go without looking silly.

On a different note; the people who live two doors down had a party last night. By the time it was over (around 4am) there were some DRUNK people wandering around! At about 2am they were all out there singing “Sweet Caroline” at the tops of their lungs. It was really pretty funny. The cool thing was that because these houses are built so well you could only hear them if you were in the kitchen. One step out of the kitchen and you literally couldn’t hear a peep.

Now I am off to paint some more!
