I Hate My Bathroom - Part II

For those of you who are just dying to see how my bathroom has turned out, I give you Part II. Unfortunately, there’s going to have to be a Part III. I can’t refinish the tub and shower area until spring. It's necessary to use an epoxy paint, which is more toxic, and the windows must be open with fans going to get the fumes out of the room.
But in the meantime, you'll be amazed at how great my bathroom now looks, with all white walls, a new clean and shiny white sink and vanity, and an adorable cabinet above the toilet (which will also be replaced in the spring with a nice new white commode). Of course, the kitties had to check out the new sink and vanity to be sure they were acceptable. Here’s Yoshi getting comfy in the new white sink I bought at Lowe’s.

It’s a perfect fit for my bathroom. And you just couldn’t beat the price! The vanity and sink combined was only $129.00. I bought a lovely brushed nickel faucet for another $69.00.



Not to be outdone by Yosh, Meowzers checks out…

I named the company “pie ala moe!” and, before long, I was selling full-sized pies and “mini moe’s” – tiny tarts – to local restaurants and individuals. As business continued to grow, I acquired an investor who gave me the working capital I needed to quit my job as a collections associate for a large accounting firm. This chapter begins when I’m leaving the accounting firm to grow my pie business full-time.)

Chapter Five: Serendipity

My last day at Dorfman Robbie was both exhilarating and a little scary. I was saying goodbye to friends I’d made over the last three years. These people had helped me cope with so many things, …

The Slaughter of Innocents

How much longer can we let these shootings go on? Even as we watch in real time, as crying, shaken students flee from a school - while others not as lucky lay bleeding on the ground - we already hear the rationalizations, the justifications - the second amendment above all else???

This is not what the framers of the Constitution intended - when will paying homage to the NRA and an irrational fear that "our guns will be taken from us" be cast aside in favor of our safety and peace of mind? What have we allowed to happen in our beloved country?
