    What did you do today?

    Got the fridge & freezer cleaned up enough to start stocking up on food again. Had to sit on the floor and lean in to clean the very bottom of the fridge. Brother helped. I pulled the shelves/drawers, scrubbed them, handed them to him to dry & put back. He scrubbed the outside of the fridge as...

    Best friend's house burned on Easter

    The toilet is now available on amazon for $178.99 and free shipping if anyone is in the market for a toilet. It's also available for in-store pickup via Lowes. If you get a Lowes credit card you can get 20% off some stuff but if you're military you can get 10% off. I don't believe they stack...

    What did you do today?

    Thanks. It gets frustrating. And now one of my aunts is really pressuring my mom to just ditch everything, get rid of our cats, and move. I have a lot of memories here. My father built a lot of things here and my cats are my babies. There is also a lot of pressure on me to be the one to get...

    What did you do today?

    Guess who had a surprise major leak in water supply lines for the kitchen sink? It was spraying so hard it was pouring out under the house & I thought there was a broken line under there. Didn't realize until later it was inside. Managed to shut it off for now but back wasn't cooperating enough...

    What did you do today?

    Raccoons are still wrecking the place and stealing stuff. All of my silicone utensils for cooking have gone missing. I think they even stole some of my tools. I wish I knew where their nest was so I could find my stuff. Sometimes they drop things outside so I will have to look around. My...

    Can I mix 12 and 14 gauge wire in a junction box?

    I just wanted to thank you guys for the answers because I did not know some of this. I'm taking notes. I need to stop calling cables "wires".

    What did you do today?

    Glad it went well, Flyover. I wish I'd had my camera ready when my little dog was barking at the raccoons. They are bigger than him and were not impressed. Then they saw me and ran. They still keep sneaking in though. I spent a long time cleaning up. I found my mother's lost engagement ring...

    What did you do today?

    Finally got power back. Walked in to check on the pets & the power came on while we were there. The house is a disaster inside though. Looks like it was ransacked. I was blaming the dogs & cats at first but then two very fat raccoons showed up in the kitchen. There were drawers opened, pantry...

    Post Your Kitchen!!

    Lol. I wasn't home when they did it. Dogs also messed stuff up. They dragged in trash from outside and ripped all kinds of stuff open.

    Best friend's house burned on Easter

    Murphy table idea has been scrapped. Not enough prep space. Got a Farberware 6qt pressure cooker bc their rice cooker sucked. New plan is to move fridge to diagonal corner and put a dishwasher in its place under butcheblock counter. Smaller window will be put in and upper cabinets will be put...

    Post Your Kitchen!!

    Got HyperTough slim LED under cabinet lights. They are brighter than the ceiling fan light. In my friend's house. My own kitchen is an absolute disaster. Cats and dogs have been tearing things up.

    What did you do today?

    Awesome! I'll have to look those up when power is back. I'm going to start a phone campaign to remind my power company every day until it is fixed. Meanwhile, the lights: New toilet:

    What did you do today?

    That should have been Fippy, not Guppy. I can understand teen mothers having trouble with babies and being irresponsible. This girl is 23 and the baby might not even be my friend's. Got about 7 people here using 1 bathroom. The grandfather just goes all over. He was injured on the job when he...

    What did you do today?

    Got undercabinet lights for my friend's kitchen. Had to go to my house twice today to pick up tools and later drill bits. Guppy had gotten himself locked in the living room both times so it's a good thing I checked. I need to find a way to latch that door so he can't get in. It has a spring so...

    What did you do today?

    If I could get my thoughts together I'd write memoirs. Lol. Today I babysat my friend's mother's dog. Emptied the urine bottles & rinsed them. Cleaned the baby's bottles. Fed some kittens. Put the old man's pain patches on his shoulders. Took mom home to see Fippy. Fed and refilled water for...
