Ok, I’ve decided NOT to embed gallery?into my themes, because it is way too much work.? For now, the Photos link above links to the family gallery which is more for the general viewing audience.? I will still post photos on my site, but no gallery for me.? Too much to update Cool.

Amy has decided to try out WordPress!? She now uses her own blog instead of Xanga (which has annoying?ADs).? If you ask nicely, I will tell you the link to her site!? Haha…jk? Click here for her website.

BTW: if you use WordPress, EditorMonkey is the BEST plugin EVER!

Please pray for Greg, as he has been throwing up all day today!Surprised


So for the past few weeks, I have been Window framing.? This is what it looks like unpainted.
Window Frame

Pretend this is how the window used to look, with no frames.? (This is one of our bathroom windows that I will be doing this week)
Unframed Window

And this is how 6 out of 10 windows will look like when everything is finished.? The other 4 are just sheetrock.
Finished Frame

BTW, where the drums is in the lower left corner, is where I currently sleep.? And that chair, is where I am sitting nowLaughing.

OK, gtg.? Work to be done tomorrow.

Time to Update

September 6th, 2005 Comments off

I guess I should update since I haven’t for a long time.

So things that I have worked on the past few weeks:

Greg and I totally stripped the white Jeep, saving all the parts and stuff. If you ever want to learn how to fix a car, take it apart… We basically saved all the good parts to be switched to our other Jeep. I have pics but too lazy to post them up… maybe later…
We then worked on transfering some of the parts to the red Jeep. So far we re-did the headliner (the fabric was sagging like all old cars), switched the front bumber to the nice chrome one, switched seats, added the top console and wires, and added the back windshield wiper. The Jeep is now put back together and “complete” for now. We will be adding the power windows and power door locks, (which means have to wire the whole car), and adding the tow package from the white Jeep.

Ok enough about the Jeep. Next we put in the two biggest windows (finally). Those two windows caused us a lot of trouble, and finally got them delivered. Added the frames and primed them, so looks ok now. Still have tons more to do to actually complete the whole window job, but at least the major windows are in and can notice a huge difference already. :mrgreen:

We got a Total Gym 1700 Club, so now we’ve all been working out :lol: I can feel the burn…

Um, started school today… only had two classes and this semester already looks heavy. Have 3 more classes to goto.

Not much else to say…tired like always..

BTW, when gallery2 comes out, I will be updating my site’s look.

Since summer school has ended, pretty much been slowly installing new windows for our house. We have 10 windows to do and so far have 6 of them in. Two of the windows we had trouble with because one of them was damaged when we picked it up at Lowes, and another we ordered wrong size :shock:. Tomorrow I’ll be putting stucco around the windows in the back. ( I hate stucco, you get it on your skin and it gets all itchy) I can’t wait till we get the garden windows in the kitchen, those will look very nice. Hopefully I’ll take some pics, soon for you all to see. Oh yea, when I was taking my old window out, I accidentally hit the window with the crowbar and broke the window, and my hand went through… :sad: Glass cuts suck! I have like 6 cuts on my left hand (the hand I write and eat with!) So windows is like our summer project for this year like the patio was for last year.

Last thing, I’m on a mission to find the best chocolate chip recipe! Haha… I just love chocolate chip cookies, so I want to be able to make them… I actually haven’t started, but soon…
