Tidbits about the house [Apr. 19th, 2010|10:30 pm]
Somebody came and took the godawful fugly green couch! YAY!

I absolutely LOVE the slidey tray storage cabinet things in the kitchen.

Somehow, despite no change in the actual number of books, I think I'm going to need at least one more bookshelf.

I am sure looking forward to the replacement garage door openers I ordered arriving.

I never expected to be so excited about appliances. The dishwasher, though used, is so quiet I can barely stand it. But it's still not quite as awesome as the extra 5' strip for storage in the garage is going to be.

We need a ladder so I can hang pictures.

There are STILL way too many boxes left to unpack.

We have 2 ladders. I'm sure one of them will meet your needs. You are welcome to borrow it :)

You're homeowners. You need a step ladder, a drain snake, extra UPS's, replacement CFL light bulbs, a step-stool, a basement de-humidifier, a porch broom, a caulking gun, mousetraps, ant traps....

And in the winter you'll need a humidifier, urea ice melter, a snow shovel, spare garage door remotes, phoenix down....

I'll stop now.

A LADDER! I should bring the ladder in if I'm going to do that! *facepalm*

I recently got a pull-out drawer in my kitchen. One wasn't enough. It's great.

A friend of mine corrected me though saying that I don't have to say "pull-out" because all drawers do that.

So being Doctor Tectonic, are you going to put in a laboratory in the basement to invent new scary things?

Books expand when you move them. It's a little-known fact, but I am convinced. *nods*
