---- now u see me.... :-)
Hi Jland friends,
Been lazy these past two weeks (or has it been a month??), hardly did anything done around the house, even though I'm only working one day out of the week at the retail store, BUT! my husband painted the living room GREEN! (Guacamole green, c68-4, an Olympic paint brand at Lowe's) oohh it is soo nice! It turned out well. Next project is to paint my kitchen yellow which would be Butterfly Bush, b11-2, Lowe's Olympic brand also....hopefullly to get it done before my daughter's senior graduation in June.
(oh, I had to use the pink color for the yellow font because I could NOT see/read the yellow!) :-D
Our Kenmore fridge broke early in the fall last year, and a nice friend lent us their garage fridge for a while until we are able to afford to buy a new one. The compressor of the Kenmore fridge we previously have stopped working, we bought this fridge at Sears in 2002. We called them to fix it and even though it was still in the warranty, they told us that we have to pay them, for the technician to come look at it and tell us what was wrong even though we already told the Sears person that we know what is wrong with it, they said they don't work that way, that they have to send their guys over.Then they'll order the parts, which we have to pay PLUS labor! geez...that's how they make money, they'll talk you into buying "warranty" when you first bought the item and when it comes time to enforce the warranty, it doesn't cover what was suppose to be covered!) so, the way to go was to buy a new one, which was better and no, we did not get them at Sears at all.
Well, on the good side, we indulge ourselves to a HUGE brand new 60" inch tv. I went out and got a wall unit for that tv, I've always wanted to have an entertainment center and I got it about a couple weeks ago. Maybe that's why I haven't done much (except spend money??) :-D sure, yeah....thanks to taxes.And now we're getting the one in September which will be in time for the holiday shopping. Hmnn.....always find reason to spend money huh? :-)
Anyway, I'll be taking pictures of my newly painted and dressed living room sometime soon. I've gotten a few wall art/pictures collections off ebay a while back and just needed some really nice frames to put it and then hang it on the wall.
I have more to say, but I've got to make shrimp fried rice, husband's wish, for dinner. I'll be back again tonight online.
