After work yesterday I stopped at Menard's and bought stuff to shock the pool. As soon as I got home I dumped in a whole pound of it. It made an amazing difference within just a few hours. Today at lunchtime I threw in another pound. There's probably enough chlorine in there now to bleach a load of socks. I'm hoping by tomorrow it will be the appropriate color for pool water. As in, not green.

Speaking of green water, our water system nonsense still isn't taken care of. I'm pretty tired of looking at yellow water. Yesterday they gave us two options for fixing it. A new system that will require a bleaching of the well every six months or a different system where we have to pay for some cartridges that cost $255. And they have no clue how long one of those cartridges will last. Kind of hard to make a decision. If a cartridge lasts 6 months, that's one thing; if it lasts 3 weeks, that's a whole other thing. I'm so over it. So, so, so over it.

I managed to maneuver the ladder in the garage last night to take a peek at those baby robins. They are not cute. At all. All four of them don't have feathers yet, and they were sound asleep. So asleep that I was afraid they had died. As I was standing up there trying to take pictures, all of a sudden four little heads popped up, mouths wide open. And then momma or daddy flew in to feed them, took one look at me and promptly left. I'm lucky I didn't fall off the damn ladder since it was about a foot from my head. The babies immediately dropped back into sleep mode. Kind of amazing, actually.  I'm going to take more pics, but I'm going to wait until they are actually feathered and cute.

Last night for some reason I was just too tired to do nails, so here's another one from a few weeks back. It didn't turn out at all like I wanted, but it's not horrid or anything.

I started out with a black base and then sponged on both Ludurana Aurora Boreal Emocionate and Show, and I also sponged on some HITS Trendy. I took black stamping polish to do the "v" shape from my DRK-C plate.

I couldn't get a good picture of this no matter what I did. It looks much more solid blue in the pics than it actually was. It looks like there's only two colors when there were actually three. It really was better in person. I hate how that happens sometimes.

Tonight I believe I'll get to work emptying out the bedroom closet. On Thursday the flooring peeps are coming to do the bathroom and bedroom floors. Finally we'll be able to get the bathtub out of the living room, and my new toilet can get put in. The damn vanity won't be here for another couple of weeks, but at least there's light at the end of the tunnel. Why it takes 3 weeks to get a standard size vanity is beyond me.

Lordie, I just thought about how many pairs of shoes I have to move. Trust me when I tell you this is a very scary thought, indeed. 

If somebody would like to come over and do it for me, I'm okay with it. And while you're there, you can also move my bedroom set out into the living room.
