Our new business

I'm so excited!  Derek's starting a handyman business.  We've made flyers and everything.  He's so good at home repairs/remodels!  And he's got a blog for his new business too. There's not much posted yet, but keep checking!  We're going to have a bunch of great photos of his work! 


If you know anyone that needs work done in the Boise-Caldwell area, let us know! :D


Last night, we discovered that Willow, our cat, likes to play fetch in her own kitten sort of way (meaning she just kind of quits half-way through).  Holy crap, who would have thought that a cat would do such a thing!  Evidently, it's fairly common with the Maine Coon breed.  Willow keeps doing more and more things that convince me that she's at least part Maine Coon.  She has a squeaky, high pitched meow; uses her paws as if they were hands (pulling our hands closer to her so we'll pet her); has a HUGE poofy tail; and is a bit poofier in the face, ears and legs.

So I'm thinking I want to move around my furniture... again.  We just re-arranged our 2nd bedroom just a couple of weeks ago, but I'm already second guessing our scheme.  I just can't do anything about it right at the moment.  I'm not actually in my house so I can only imagine how it would go.  But then once I get there with a plan in my head, it won't work.  It always happens that way.  I'm just grateful that my apartment has sufficient outlets and that we have wireless internet.  Our apartment had great wireless, but only about 3 outlets.  Very insufficient!  

I'm also going to try to get it all re-arranged before Derek comes home.  He's been out of town since last Wednesday helping out his brother and parents.  Maybe I can get it all done and take pictures too.  I wish furniture was lighter.

Spelling maybe?

So funny thing happened today.  I got a reply to an e-mail I sent this morning to my friend Jessica.  I was watching a funny tv show clip (from Creature Comforts, hilarious, check it out!), and thought, my friend Jessica would love this!  So just as I was in the middle of writing the e-mail to her to check out the clip on youtube, I was called away from my computer to lend a hand to my mother.  I quickly finished up the e-mail and clicked send before I really checked what I had written.  So needless to say, when I got an e-mail back from her this evening, I was surprised and confused with her ending line, "Racgek...? ha ha ha"  

It took me a minute, but then it dawned on me.  I had spelled my own name wrong!  And an even funnier thing happened just now.  I just realized that I had typed TWO letters wrong!  In my response to her, I had only offered an excuse for one!  :D  Maybe I should practice typing my name a few times.
