The other night our garbage disposal died. Just a little buzz and then nothing. David got out his headlamp, a screwdriver and messed with some stuff. Wa la! It worked. I was very impressed.
It was super cold here the past few days. We had the fireplace going. But, unless you sit a few feet in front of it, you don't get any of the warmth. When we bought the house, they offered to put a blower in for like $500 or something crazy. It basically blows the warm air out. We were trying to cut corners, so we didn't get it.
David found a youtube video show how to do it and found one on amazon for $38. We got it today and wa la! He got it installed! He's turning into Mr. Home Improvement. It works, but now that it's warmed up we can't really test it out as we don't want to heat up the room anymore than it already is. But, next week, our highs are in the low 50's again, so it'll be nice to use it.
Emily posted the picture on Instagram yesterday. She took over my Instagram account, even renamed it. So this morning we had this conversation:
Me: Emily, what were those gang symbols you were throwing down on Instagram.
Emily: That's the symbol for hashtag.
Emily: What's a gang?
Good golly, I have a lot to learn about kids today.
I bought two baguettes. I was dividing them up and wrapping them for future meals. Noah saw the wrappers and immediately thought they'd make great robot arms. I love the mind of a 6 year old.
Halloween came and went and we missed watching half of our favorite movies. So, we made a list of all of our Christmas movies and we are trying to watch several a week. We've already knocked off three. I figure we should get them all in before Christmas.
That's about all that's going on around here.
