Linda and I tried to finish the house painting this weekend- NO SUCH LUCK! We did complete part of the dining room {{popup MVC-522F.JPG MVC-522F 640×480}} The glass blocks are trimmed in wood that got stained, the upper wall is “Martha Stewart Soleil” and below the chair rail is “Ralph Lauren Suede Doeskin Grey”. We love the suede but think too much yellow is not good. We did paint another wall green and Linda said it had to go (she hates it) so it is a redo- I think it is going to the Suede and the other half of the wall- that runs into the kitchen is going to be a lighter shade of the Suede. So- more to come.

Linda starts her next 10 week session (2 left/20 weeks) and she will be done. The hospital she does clinicals at wants her to start work- she is not sure if she will do it (we will know when she comes home tonight).

I have “Back to School Services” today for my kids so I am officially back to work. I have spent the last two days decorating my new office at my new school- it is beautiful (I’ll take pictures soon).

Well I just looked up 17 of 48 articles for my college class and I am tired (remember- I have to get up early- UGH!)

Well I have figured out how to change colors of links (now we can see them)and added some poems and quotes (let me know if you have some you would like added). My next goal will be to change the format of the layout but with school starting it may take awhile. Continue to enjoy and I’ll continue to learn- all suggestions welcome!

To anyone who will be around, I am going to be going home the weekend of August 16-18. The rents just can’t live without me!

Anyways, it will be nice to see everyone and to get away from the humidity for a weekend. Talk to you all real soon.

Hope this finds everyone cool…thanks for taking the time to sign up and keep in touch.
I made this post to see if it would change the calendar from July to August (it did). Still learning the program and checking things out. If anyone has any questions don’t hesitate to ask (I’ll probably have to ask Erin) but we are doing pretty good. Next goal is to rebuild the look of the page- this will take some playing around, suggestions welcome.

Linda and I have been very busy with the money pit. We had the sewers put in this spring which tore up the yard and created some water issues (flooded my barn!) so we brought in a bobcat and rearranged the land, put in a patio{{popup patio.JPG patio 640×480}}-(we did the front flower circle too) we still are going to extend the poured concrete with paver blocks laid on the diagonal- you can see one in the picture (needed the pad for the future hot tub), put in two brick walls one off the patio{{popup wall1.JPG wall1 640×480}} and one leading up to the deck {{popup wall2.JPG wall2 640×480}}which we have torn off and are rebuilding (will finish it next year- ran out of steam and cash)plus {{popup steps.JPG steps 640×480}}steps. On the 101 days I redid my bedroom- finally scrapped the ceiling and painted it, painted the walls, stained the side tables, got new drapes and lights and pictures on the wall. Take a look at the before {{popup brbefore.JPG brbefore 640×480}}and after {{popup brafter.JPG brafter 640×480}}. Now school is getting ready to start both at Park Hill and UMKC so I have other work to do- the joys of home ownership!

Hello everyone.

It has been very busy for me. But I am starting to reep some of the rewards, I am on my way to winning engineer of the month of July, as I am almost to $200,000 in sales bookings for the month!

Work unfortunately has taken most of my time, but I have been working on some other things as well like my golf swing. Just kidding.

I have been working hard to get back down to my college weight and have lost 35 lbs. sinced I moved to Florida!

Well, I hope everyone is doing well, and I hope to talk to everyone before then but if not I will see everyone at Christmas.

HOT

Kansas City has been hot. So hot the {{popup dirt.JPG dirt 640×480}}dirt has cracked open. Everything is dying (grass is brown, plants are wilting)- not a place to visit right now!

I just posted a link and a picture- both work- just have to figure out how to make the links stand out more. Yahoo!

Here is a place to share ideas, thoughts and daily happening or bitch about the things that have gone wrong or piss us off or show us photos or quotes or ideas or recipes or just what ever. There is no theme yet and this site is not totally set up. Please remember that I am ignorant on html/blogging/FTP stuff and am in the process of trying to learn. Thank God I have help from my niece and goddaughter Erin (who is also limited on time) to try and help and teach me. Be patient- we will get there. For now enjoy while I pull my hair out!

With 4 places to log in- two different scripts I had no idea what was what and who was where- Erin to the rescue….now I get it and where I should be. Now I just have to learn the code but I get the FTP, the GreyMatter program and the jist behind the code so I think we can move forward. If I did what I think I did (I know what I mean) I should be able to start putting peoples names in to be able to post and turn this in to a family affair. I will e-mail people for username and password after I talk with Erin tonight. Soon…is the anticipation killing you?
