My answer? The internet.
Seriously, how did we live before the internet?
My connection went down last week when I was in Cleveland. Poor Dave had to get grilled by me as I was trying to determine the issue. (turns out it was a driver issue)
I was lost for almost a week. Do you know HOW MANY times a day I think "let me look that up online." I had no idea how dependent I have become on the internet. (and a huge thanks to Chris for helping me get the problem fixed)
On the bright side, my house got clean. I did a little scrapbooking. I read a book and some magazines. I played Wii with Jacob. I finished distressing/painting my bathroom cabinets and bought some cute accessories. (Jacob's current favorites - monkeys). I went out for Margaritas with Maggie. Now that I read all of that, perhaps I should be without internet more often.
Now for some bathroom details. I didn't want too many monkeys. (who does, really?) I bought shower curtain rings, washclothes, and the tumbler. The rest of the stuff is this nice bronze collection. They go nicely together. And as soon as "I" get the towel bar installed, I will take final pictures of the remodel.
