I have been going to our Thursday night Bible study by myself a lot recently as Allen has been traveling. They have been listening to my reports regarding the latest on the house. As they are all homeowners, they have lots of tips. I don't know how to do much more than hammer a nail into the wall to hang a picture and even if I did, we don't own a drill. Anything involving slightly more complicated actions means I have to call for help. Either my dad has come over for an afternoon on the weekend or my handyman comes by. That also means that Allen always gets out of the tough jobs. So last night we celebrated Allen's birthday at our Bible study. Guess what they gave him?? A drill! It was great, because we need one, but I thought it was even better because Allen now has no excuse for not being able to help me hang window treatments, etc.!

I am so excited. My handyman came this morning and installed the new showerhead in the guest bathroom making it fully functional, and helped me hang the roman shades I got for the large window behind the dining table. I did a full vacuum of the downstairs for the first time today! There has been junk all over for so long! The replacement piece to our desk also came today so Allen is putting the rest of it together. We intend to start putting away all the office stuff and Al's books from the garage this weekend. Our goal is to be able to park 2 cars in the garage by the end of the month! Hooray!
