Happy Anniversary to us

Flar and I are married 23 years today.

Tonight, we had a date night, just the two of us. We went to see Mean Girls in the first run theatre, and The Girl Next Door in the "dollar" theatre (which charges $3 on weekends).

I have a new life goal.

Not to be Regina's mom.

Both movies were fun, and it was neat to go out, just the two of us. We need to do that more often, I think.

We totally unloaded the pantry today, and it pretty much fills the dining room. We've got things all spread out so that we can organize it before putting it back in. The contractors are going to repair the supports on one shelf, install three new shelves, patch the drywall, potentially paint (if it can all be finished before the end of the week), and install molding around the floor.

When we are done, there should be no remaining mouse entrances.

We went to Lowe's before the movie, to buy the shelving. We also got copper tubing to replace the plastic tubing the mice keep eating through. I verified that the connection is easy to access from the front of the sub-zero, and cleaned out the drip pan -- nasty!

I didn't mop the jacuzzi room today, or make a whole lot of progress in the kitchen. Actually, I got kind of discouraged by how much of the pantry erupted into the kitchen. But the table isn't as bad now as it was it the height, so I'll cope. Tomorrow.

Knight is planning to take me on the first supply run for the PWP tomorrow: paper goods etc. We'll inventory over here before going, and that'll be a challenge, looking at the dining room.

Tomorrow: Catchup - taking "tables" with a grain of salt; measure the window in the blue bathroom for curtains; clean the tub-surround in the master bathroom; clean the master bathroom; work on editing out stuff that shouldn't go back into the pantry. And Work.

Tonight, read email, read LJ, go to bed earlier than I have been.
