A New Door

It's been a little hectic around here.  Not sure if it's a good kind of a hectic or not.  On Sunday night, our sewer line to the main line got backed up and there was water everywhere coming out of the downstairs bathroom - so gross. M called a least 3 plumbers and only 1 company called him back.  I guess most plumbers don't work on Sundays.

Michael had a couple of scrimmages on Saturday and his team did not do very well. They got beat by both teams and did not even score a single goal.  To be fair, they were missing 3 of their top players and had to play back-to-back. Silver lining? Michael hustled and played aggressively.  They have their qualifying tourney this weekend.  Two games on Saturday and 1 game on Sunday.  If they win all their games, they qualify and don't have to play in the tourney next weekend. Go Solar!

We got our new door installed on Friday and M painted it this weekend.  I would love to say I'm excited about it, but I just wish we didn't have to spend the money to replace our old door.  It's the exact same door that we had except without the cracks along the panels.  We can't see through our door now! I guess that's kind of exciting. 

M working hard on getting the door painted.

Ta-da! The finished product. I think he did an awesome job.

And...our new dishwasher got installed yesterday! And it's so beautiful and shiny. It's been on backorder for 3 weeks so I'm relieved we finally got it. 

The boys and I went out to lunch yesterday so we won't get in the way of our housecleaners. How perfect our these little guys?

Then we stopped by the library to return some books and pick up some new ones.  The boys love the "You Wouldn't Want to" series so that's what they checked out.  We also borrowed "Because of Winn-Dixie" DVD.  I'm so excited to watch it with Michael.  He read the book and loved it, but I never read it so I'm interested to see what he thinks about the movie compared to the book.

And I had to post these pictures because they're so cute! They woke up yesterday morning and came downstairs to watch a little tee-tee.


  1. Loving the new door. The glossy black exterior definitely goes well with the light colors of the frame and walls. How’s it looking from the inside, btw?

    And yeah, most plumbers don’t work on weekends. It’s a good thing it happened on a Sunday night. Imagine if it happened on a Saturday morning. You’d have to wait until Monday to get some professional service.


  2. He, indeed, did a great job painting your new door. It looks so good! Making sure that your doors are always in their prime condition doesn't only offer additional curb appeal to the property, it also gives you peace of mind, knowing unwanted visitors wouldn't be able come in easily.

  3. Wow, sounds like you had a very busy weekend! Your husband did a good job painting the door. It's a shame to hear that you had to spend a great deal replacing the old one, but I hope it would eventually turn into a good investment.
