It's stin-ky and what I'm reading this week

Wow, it's Friday already, eh?  Thankfully this week has gone by quickly and hairy situations have almost all been dealt with.  The basement dudes come back today to do the "stinky" part of the basement wall fix.  If yesterday wasn't stinky then this should be heinous.  The dude just shut the door and left.  Um, excuse me sir, perhaps turning on the fan and opening the back window so that noxious fumes in a room with a flame from a hot water heater would be in order.  Idiot.  We've got the back lanai set up to be our office today if need be and depending on how bad it gets, we may end up in a hotel Chicago.  HA!

But enough of the stinky stuff, let's get to...

‘The Goonies’ house goes off limits  (SEE!  This is why people suck.  People like the Mr and I who make vacations out of visiting movie locations are respectful, take pics from a distance and certainly don't harass the owners.  You are NOT entitled to trespass just because a place was featured in a movie or tv show.  Please stop ruining it for the rest of us who aren't douches!)

Foo Fighters Fan Brian Roberts Rocks Edmonton Crowd on Cover of Rush’s ‘Tom Sawyer’  (This is pretty cool and I LOVE watching Dave's face behind him as the dude hits the high notes.)

Dave Grohl serenades emotional Foo Fighters fan  (Okay, I know, two Foo Fighters links in a row but seriously, if Dave would stop being so damned awesome, I could go on.  Actually, whether you're a fan or not, watch this.  When he calls out the dude and then the thing and then they....oh man, I'm a friggin' puddle of tears.  I know this feeling that man is going through.  I've been to some concerts that have brought me to tears when you connect with the artist and I was so him at a few.  You cry those tears Anthony!)

Well, we have no definite plans this weekend because we don't know if our home is going to be inhabitable for more than 20 minutes at a time.  We've got outfits ironed in case we need to make a hasty retreat to anywhere but here.  We're paddling tonight to kill 3 hours and let the house air out but after that, I gots nothin'.

What are you guys doing this weekend?

  1. I know this is going to stink and I expect it to be pretty bad but I sure hope we can find a way to stay home overnight. I hope that our plan of keeping the bedroom windows open, keeping the A/C off so it won't circulate fumes and just keeping the air flow from the basement going in the right direction out the back of the house will work out for us. Crossing the fingers on that!

  2. My physical therapist had me do most of those ankle exercises when I was healing from my broken fib. I need to get back in the habit of doing them again.

  3. This weekend will be house cleaning and getting ready for the kids to come back Monday. Dullsville - population me. I took the boy to the fair yesterday though, so I guess I've had my weekend fun early.

    Can you camp on your lanai? It may not be glamorous, but it would keep you out of the stink and save you the hotel bill. Hopefully by tomorrow the worst of it will be over.

  4. I'm not quite sure what my plans are yet other than a meeting tomorrow morning. I got off work today at noon (woot!!) so I plan on doing some laundry today (few things give me a bigger happy sigh than walking into the bedroom to see an empty laundry basket), and I have a pork roast in the crock pot for dinner. I'm definitely taking the pooches for a drive in the country to listen to their ears flap in the wind! Good luck with the fumes....hoping they'll go in the proper direction and it won't be as bad as you think!
