The bedroom AC cabinet is done!
The girl cave AC cabinet is done!
The living room AC cabinet is done!
Today was unseasonably warm – it got up to 48° which meant I could spray paint the 4 remaining door panels for the AC boxes – HOORAY!!! Painting the 2 green ones by hand was tedious and took hours and made my hand cramp up from jabbing a dry brush into every single hole to make sure no paint was stuck.
Currently 2 of the 3 AC xox frames I made last March are wrapped in plastic to keep the cold out. I never knew how much air blew in through our [in-wall] ACs until last week during the bitter freeze. Brrrr! It made me realize we need insulated AC doors asap so between yesterday & today I built all 3 sets.
OK. I realize there are many situations where 4 hours can feel like 14: a really bad first date, a half day meeting at work, shopping. But today I’m talking about cleaning the basement. I hauled heavy shit into the “dump pile”, I cleaning off shelves that haven’t been cleaned in probably 20 years, I vacuumed cobwebs off the ceiling, and I cut up more than 100 boxes for recycling. O. M. G.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
I put this post together 11/3 and totally forgot I had it set to publish automatically tonight. Oops! I wasn’t ready, but I have updated it and now it’s done 🙂
On 12/1/17 we lost our sweet boy Bonkers. He’d been sick for a long time but started going downhill very fast at the end of November.
For a few months now, half the basement has been dark. There are 4 sets of fluorescent ceiling lights down there, but 2 had burnt out. Unfortunately the half that’s been dark is my neighbor Kathy’s – her cage is in a separate room of the basement and been basically pitch black. I knew I needed to get replacement bulbs, but I’ve been sick for so long and so exhausted that I kept forgetting.
OK, so a few years ago I bought some assorted adult fish at the pet store and it turned out the female gold-dust Molly was pregnant and had a fish baby [she probably had a lot more but they all got eaten by the mom and the other adults]. The Fish Baby was the cutest thing ever!
