The Beginning of the End - Pizza Every Night for a Month Begins

Tomorrow, the plumber comes and so today my husband ripped the last pieces out of the kitchen. We'll be ripping out more of the drywall and some of the floor later but we feel like we've finally started to turn the corner from destruction to creation. Wish us luck.

Let the Destruction Begin!

It's official! We have the permits. We can now begin to destroy the place for real.

Thinking about Missouri

Well, I can't sleep again. I've been thinking about Missouri.

I found this page on the web.

You could make up a story around it.

One day, I decided to take a trip. I love country music and I'd never been to Branson before. Everyone said it was the best. But, what with my recent remodeling efforts - not to mention brand new flooring, my pocketbook was a little empty.

So, I got down on my knees and did a little praying. As I lifted up my eyes from prayer, I happened to notice my aunt Agatha's old painting on the wall. That got me to thinking - could this be worth something? I called my lawyer to see if he had any ideas on how I could find out. He was busy so while I waited, I studied the painting a little more. It was a landscape featuring some of the local wildlife. When I looked closer, I realized that one of the animals in the picture is actually endangered. I wondered if the local wildlife conservation group would be interested.

I hung up the phone (that lawyer was never coming on the line) and called the Missouri Department of Conservation.

Hmm - this is getting a little long (and it's kind of bad too). I need to polish it up a bit so I think I'll go try to sleep and resume the tale tomorrow.
