Thursday and Friday June 10 & 11, 2010


I can't believe how tired I was this morning and how nice it was just to lie in bed.

Gordon had already been to the hardware store this morning and gotten what he needed to mount his DVD cabinet on the wall. Now he has a place for his photos (it's barely half full).

Then he needed to go to Staples to get some sleeves for the DVDs. I went along as I wanted to order a stamp with our address on it. While there I also needed to get ink for our inkjet printer. Gordon looked at the price of ink for the inkjet and then started looking at laser printers. Needless to say, we came home with no ink for the inkjet but we do have a new laser printer!

Dee and I finally got to do chat and video on Yahoo Messenger! We were so excited!

Since not much was on TV tonight and our VCR isn't hooked up yet (yes, we still have a VCR), I thought I'd watch the Desperate Housewives finale on the internet since we now have high speed. Well, imagine my surprise when I find out that you can't watch a full length streaming video outside of the U.S. What's with that? Do they think only Americans are interested in this stuff? ABC needs to get with the times!


This morning Gordon took the truck in for an oil change. It's not nearly so far to go anymore! While he was gone I decided to line the drawers in the kitchen and bathroom with the wallpaper that I bought at the thrift store the other day. I did eight drawers in the kitchen and four in the bathroom as well as the bottom of the bathroom cabinet and I still have some left but not enough to do all the kitchen cupboards. I think I'll use it to line the cupboard in the laundry room.

We had to go out this afternoon to pick up some things and Gordon thought it would be a good day to go to the RV. We haven't been there in about a week and a half so he took the weed eater along. He looked after the long grass, I packed up almost all of the inside. There's one cupboard left for another day but my basement is bulging! I think I'm going to have to have a garage sale!


  1. Hi Sandra,
    You two continue to get settled in. I am wondering if you are comfortable talking about how you two were able to affort to buy a house and get out of your RV. Just wondering how different people make these decisions. I have changed the name of my blog. It is now: A camp host housewife's meanderings Come visit when you have a minute.

  2. I still have boxes and bags in every room with stuff I don't have room for. It's disheartening!
