Central Air

So, I woke up this morning and found this in my driveway. Hubby made an executive decision that his white northern European genetics simply can't stand the humidity and the heat of the New Jersey summer any longer. He hates the look of the window units, he hates the noise they make, he hates having to take them off and put up every season... Well, you get the idea.

Honestly, I am glad that he did it. I personally can't justify the cost, considering we have so much going on right now, but I have to say, it will be pleasant not listening to him complain.

He returned to illustrate his first book, “Snow Bound,” written by John Greenleaf Whittier. The success of this first illustration project lead to more work and Fenn’s second book, “Ballads of New England.” These two books were the first illustrated gift books of their kind in the United States. They were important milestones in the history of American book making and created great renown for the artist.

In the 1870's Fenn traveled extensively around the country for numerous illustration projects. One such trip brought him to western North Carolina for …

Kids Bath: Electrical - DONE

Electrical - DONE, TOO! Yay!

However, he opened a hole in the wall in the wrong place above the mirror, so now that needs to be patched up tomorrow. That means an extra day tacked on. We really wanted it to be finished tomorrow. We are already 4 days over schedule. Ugh.

I. Need. This. Job. To. End.
