The Rantings of a DIY chick

It’s a Damn Shame!!

1-I am taking finals this week and I am busting my chops trying to get caught up.  Lesson learned: having the kids every weekend is not a good idea in my last year of college.   Anywho…remember I told you about my sink?  Well I am not finished with it yet.  I got most of the drain taken apart…all  but the VERY LAST PIECE.  The part that is in the sink connected to under the sink.   Since I been working on school stuff every night I been getting up between 4:30 and 5:00 AM to work on my sink.  I figured out if I spray the crap out of the tight pieces with good old WD-40 and let it soak over night the pieces come apart easier.  I been doing this one piece a day.  Now I have this one last piece and this b**ch won’t come apart.  I am about ready to take out the whole sink and buy a new one just to change the drain plunger fitting LOL.  Ridiculous… I know I know…but that’s how I roll.  I constantly shoot my toes to spite my feet.  If you have any useful suggestions as to how I can get this taken apart short of pulling out the reciprocating saw and cutting it out OR buying a new sink, please, by all means, jump right on in.  And no I couldn’t just  leave it.  One is shiny metal finish and the other a brushed finish.  It’s a damn shame I have to go through all this to change out the sink fixtures and have everything match.

2- You know I have long hair.  ewwwwwl when I took the drain apart thick black slimy soot that smelled like sulfur and burnt hair came out.  what was that all about?  All the melted hair in the drain from years of using Drano LOL.  It stunk and it was nasty & disgusting.  I guess they lied when they said the foam would expand and leave the pipes sparkling clean.  It’s a damn shame to have all that burnt hair in a sink

3- Guess what was delivered today?  My Silhouette Cameo!  Yay and boooo.  Yay because I am so excited that it came and boo on the timing.  I don’t even want to crack open the box till I get these papers finished.  I don’t want to fail but have snazzy walls.  LOL  I can’t wait to play with this baby but first things first.  Get these papers written then I really have to clean this house.  It is a disaster.  I mean a REAL disaster.

4- My basement problem.  It is still raining out and it is still wet and flooding in the basement.  I was standing in the yard yesterday when I realized water was running down my driveway like a river running wild.  Then it hit me.  I need a drainage system.  I now know what to do,,,rent a trencher, trench out the yard, lay down some drainage pipe and cover with rocks or hire someone to do the same.  It’s a damn shame I have to go through all this expense just to have a dry basement.  Can someone please tell me why none of the previous owners put the drainage in place?  It’s a damn shame!!

5- I tried to diet, I gained weight.  I tried appetite suppressants, now I eat heartier.  I don’t understand it.  This is going to take drastic measures.  Going to ask my doctor for Phentermine.  I heard it works AND once the weight comes off it stays off.  I know several people who have taken it over a year ago and the weight stayed off.  I am going to ask my doctor and if they say no there is a diet clinic that will write the script and fill it for $100.  I will do that because I WILL have these pills unless the doctor gives me a solid good ding dang reason why I should not take them.  It’s a damn shame that I have to go through these measures but it is summer, I am single and I would love to be my pre-quit smoking size again.

5- And the last its a damn shame?  One of my hens is a rooster.  I haven’t figured out which one yet but one has started crowing.  I hope it is not one of my real fancy ones.  You don’t know the stories I had of my last rooster.  He terrorized me, spurred me whenever he got the chance, chased me in the house and basically ran my yard as if it were his yard.  They told me on GardenWeb to kick him real hard to let him know who the boss was and I did. Humph…he waited till I wasn’t looking and spurred the crap out of my leg…AND he drew blood!  I was too through with him.  That won’t happen again.  First threat and I am getting someone to come over here and wring his neck and then I will finally be able to taste fresh chicken while wearing a feather necklace.  I might throw the head in one of my co-workers yard for  pissing me off all the time.  LOL she will think someone put a hex on her.  LOLOLOLOLOLOL hilarious. Of course I am kidding about that part…that would be grosssss!

They say put it out in the universe and it will come to pass so here goes:

I am going to win $120 million when I go to VEGAS, pay off all my bills, including student loans, graduate college, get my tummy tuck, fix all my tattoos and get a new one, get all the problems in the house fixed, make a fantasy backyard, quit work, open my own consulting business.  Oh and lets not forget lose weight, get a makeover and find me a husband!  Hee  hee.

But for now…I am going to get this sink fixed without buying a new one..  No for now I have some catching up to do!!!

OH WAIT…BEFORE I FORGET… LOWES HAS STORM WINDOWS ON CLEARANCE for as low as $7 I COULDN’T BELIEVE MY EYES!!

    Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to make a great article but what can I say I procrastinate a whole lot and don’t seem to get anything done.
