Is it true? Is spring really here? It doesn't feel like it. But weather man said it's true. Now, bring on the warmth please. Well, we got a major problem in the kitchen. It seems the roof is leaking and the snow and ice that is on it is melting and coming through my ceiling in the kitchen. Jim came home from work and was sitting in the kitchen and heard drip, drip. He looked around and noticed that one of the drop ceiling tiles was buckled and wet. He touched it and felt water move. So he poked it with his knife and water poured out of the little hole. He called Joe and had him come upstairs. He wanted to let him know there's a problem. Joe will be on the phone tomorrow with the roofer. He lifted one of the tiles from the ceiling and oh my gosh there is serious damage. the sheetrock is crumbled, moldy and falling off. Not only does the roof have to be repaired but so does the ceiling above the drop ceiling. I told Joe he may want to call his home owners insureance on this one, cost this is gonna be expensive for sure.
Did you watch American Idol tonight? I did. I didn't even go near the computer tonight while it was on. Out of the 10 singers left I like Jordan, Chris and Melinda. Out of those 3 Melinda has my vote. That girl can sing, wow!!! And yes I voted for her, lol.
For anyone who is a Soprano's fan, the last and final 9 episodes start April 8th at 9:pm on HBO. I will be absent from the internet world during the nights the Soprano's are on. Love, love, love that show.
My scanner has been giving me problems the past 2 days. So today I went and deleted it right out of my computer, then I reinstalled it. Guess what? It's working again, wooohooooooo. I told Jim last night it wasn't working. He says restart computer, lol. Like what's that gonna do? Computer isn't even recognizing the scanner. No problem's now. I scanned plenty of pics today and it worked fine. Two of the projects I am working on, I need my scanner to do them. No worries, it's fixed.
Well, I got a few things done today around the apartment. Got my livingroom dusted, wiped down and vacuumed. Cleaned off computer desk, filing cabinet and bookshelf. Got the bathroom all wiped down, and folded and put away about a zillion loads of laundry, well maybe not a zillion but it sure felt like it. Tomorrow when I get home from Sams Club, I will finish the bedroom.
Tomorrow I am going to drive Jim to work, take Rebecca to her sister's. And Joe and I will go to Sam's. We're taking my van cause when we both shop there's never enough room in his blazer, lol. I'm letting Joe drive my van, cause I do not like driving all the way to Sams. I'm gonna look for a carpet steamer. If I rent one it costs me ovr 70.00 to rent it and buy all the chemicals to clean the carpets. I have been checking on line and for another 40 bucks I can own my own carpet cleaner. The secret to a clean carpet is not the detergent you use, it's the water. If you boil the water getting it good and hot then add it to the machine, the carpets come out alot cleaner. I know I've done it a few times on these carpets with are a very very light shade of grey and Joe's are white. Hot water works best with the shampoo.
Ok, now that I have probably bored you to sleep with this entry, I will go now. Gonna go chat with my future SIL Nancy for a few minutes, then I'm off to bed. I hope everyone enjoyed their day today and have a great day tomorrow.
Love to all.......................
