Man, I hate kitchener stitch. I always fuck something up.

We survived WIND STORM 09 somehow. The part of the roof that is peeling off is annoyingly the only part of the roof you can't get a good look at from the ground so I have no idea how bad the damage there is, but the maintenance guy has been informed. When he gets here he will be in for a few other surprises; the front of the bath downstairs fell off today. I had no idea it wasn't all one piece, and the owners had apparently stuck it on with masking tape. This is shortly after having the upstairs bath repaired because there was a golfball sized hole in the fucking pipe and it leaked water into the wall. That only took two months to do.


Seriously. This house.

The only trees we lost all fell down the hill onto the side of the road and someone has already come by and stolen them.
The power came back on at 2am Sunday morning, but went back out shortly after and did not come back till 8pm. It got very cold. Mom brought us wood for our fireplace, which must have been built for looks because it can't heat a room for crap.
Aerogarden, Fish, and Snake all seem mostly unaffected by the whole thing, although I did have to go out a couple times for handwarmers to put in cages and there was a minor worrying episode with fish tank water temperature.

I have been doing more knitting than is probably healthy since I became re-unemployed. And making tons of granola. At least it leaves me time to get really angry at taxes. When I came acrossed the line about deducting deducted deductions I had to take a break.

Christmas loot came in the form of a spinning wheel, so now all I need is my own sheeps.I'm not very good at it. I tend to make corkscrew yarn.

I think those parts of the tub are supposed to be attached with glue.

You would think, but no. Masking tape all the way.

Doing things right is for losers.
