I hope each of you rang the new year in safely and peacefully. Frank and I had a mostly quiet evening at home. The neighborhood set off fireworks and I slept through it... well, Frank said I talked through it.  He wanted to know what I said and I said I don't know... he was the one listening and I was sleeping :-).

I haven't slept well in weeks. With the damp weather we've had comes the flare up of bursitis in my hip. I see the doc on Monday and I know he will do something to help.

We are doing some more renovations to the house. The latest is taking David's old bedroom and making it an office.  It hasn't been David's bedroom for over 16 years.  It has mostly been a junk room/sewing room.  It wasn't always this  messy... this is the packing up stage :-)

Someday to become office

The paneling was removed.  The carpet was removed along with padding.   Underneath was another layer of padding.  It was stuck to the floor and Frank scraped it up and I swept.  Then Frank ran the shop vac over it. What a mess!

Office to be

Looking better!   The picture shows one of the old windows.  As you can tell we live in a house made from cement blocks.

This shows a bit of both old windows and the newly painted ceiling.

Office to be

One of the new windows.  They were a bit hard to put in.  Frank is smart and figured out how to get past the glitches.

Next we put up drywall. So you see we are busy.  Busy is good.  

Of course I'm still addicted to the games on Face Book  :-D

My thoughts and prayers to each of you.



  1. So nice to see your electrons and hear your news. I hope the new year is wonderful for you and yours.

  2. Hi, Zaroga! I wish I could get this old hubby of mine to get busy like Frank and get some remodeling done around here. Especially the kitchen! The counter tops are the same put in when the house was built in 1970! I'd love to just have counter tops and new sink. Doesn't seems so much to me but.... I don't think I'm going to get it. I know what you mean about being addicted to the FB games. Me too! That's one reason I don't blog so much any more and don't get anything else done either. Can't wait to see your finished room. Happy New Year!!!

  3. Things are really taking shape. You guys are doing a beautiful job.

    Happy New Year to you!

  4. Happy New Year Zaroga. I can't wait to see it all finished.

  5. I haven't been over here in's made us very busy!

    I hope the room makeover is coming along well and the bursitis is better!

    Happy New Year to you! Blessings to you!


  6. You must be really busy with all that going on! Can't wait to see when it's finished.

  7. Hope you are ok. Miss you blogging.
