Pittsburgh’s Goin’ to the Super Bowl!

Yes, I am excited that we’re going back to the Super Bowl. However, I am a little nervous because of the way we played the second half last night and the first half of the Ravens game (Tucker ran into the bedroom and wouldn’t come out during these times – I guess I yell at the tv too much!). Let’s hope we play better against the Packers!

Throughout the week, we didn’t have a whole lot of motivation to work on the house. On Saturday, I worked on stripping more of the bedroom furniture while Chris worked on plumbing. While I was waiting for the stripper to do its thing (and watching Psych), all of a sudden a ton of water fell from the ceiling to the shouts of Chris – “Turn off the water!” He was trying to fix a leak we’ve had in the lines running to the sink and it burst as soon as he touched it. It took awhile to get it fixed.

I was able to strip a nightstand, the top of the dresser, and all the dresser drawers. This was a lot of work and took me all day.

We have another dresser that was given to us by our next door neighbor. The top of the dresser was in bad shape – the top had a bad split and warp. I was able to fix it using some wood glue and a lot of clamps.

Saturday and most of Sunday, Chris worked on the plumbing for the water filter. This has been a project that we never seemed to have time for and were really looking forward to the completion of it. Unfortunately, the fittings sold at the hardware store are crap. It took Chris many tries to finally have no leaks in the system. Now, we can get nice filtered water directly from the faucet!

On another note, there have been a lot of deer in the yard – we think they are eating our compost. Here’s a picture of them standing in our front yard one morning.

Here we go Steelers, here we go!
