Home Improvement (Or Something Like That)

I was invited to a media reception at Kenmore's new live studio in Chicago tonight. Ty Pennington was there. Ty's on my list. You know, my list...



I was all set to go and while I was there, I planned on asking him to marry me. Or build me a house. Or come live with me in said house. And he'd be so impressed by my stellar home improvement skills, that he wouldn't be able to resist. But alas, I goofed up and dropped the ball yesterday which set in motion the events that made it impossible for me to attend tonight.

I was supposed to join in a chat for Goodnites on Gather.com last night. I got confused on my days and totally missed it. I also thought we had gymnastics then hockey at 7:00. I came home from gymnastics, made dinner and sat around eating and talking with the kids until I realized that we had baseball at 6:00 and it was 6:20. Oops. Being a little late never killed anyone, right?

So, because I had completely missed my chat last night, I needed to make it up tonight. The chat was fun. Missing Ty was not. Then again, I don't know that I could handle anymore ADHD males in this house.

But if I HAD seen him, he would've been totally impressed by my use of duct tape, yarn, and a cheap shower curtain to fix my shower door! See?






Oh yeah! I rock! The kids can't break anything that I can't fix!

Loving the creativew solution. But why does the phrase "Tim the Toolman Taylor" spring to mind?

Hugs Dawn.

There is a website called "There, I Fixed it". You should check it out and submit your photo of the shower. Very creative....Sharon

Did I miss something? What the heck happened to your shower door? Or should I even ask?

Duct tape is so versatile that you could probably have constructed a whole new shower with it!

I hope your kids don't read this...they might consider it a challenge.
Like you need another challenge:}

Just thinking of you and thought I'd pass this along. http://www.cozi.com/

Also, have you heard of a site called http://repairclinic.com ? It's awesome for helping people figure out how to do typical household repairs.

Not that your shower door isn't wonderful, I meant for other things around the house, like dishwashers and washing machines. :D

Hope you're having a great day!
