I hate not having a car.. it really sucks… I would love to take my kids to this, I think they would love it..
Anyway if you’re in the Pittsburgh are and you like Zombies you’ve got to check this out… Zombies of the Corn!
So we people here in Pittsburgh got hammered with snow. In one day we got over 21 inches of snow. My power went out from 9am Saturday until 2:30am Sunday.. No Power of course equals no heat, no fun at all. I’m thinking I need to buy a generator, not to power the house, but at least to power the furnace for such occasions…
And the best part about all of this is that someone stole my snow shovel…. and no one has any for sale.. I’ve spent hours digging my way out with a little flat shovel… grrrrr.. I hate people sometimes..
So we went to Kennywood park on friday, it was blah, not really fun, I guess the main reason it wasn’t fun is because I’m broke and basically have no money to spend on things like fun, I have bills to pay and they are what’s important in life, not having fun…
but anyway, it was my 2yr olds first time there and he really had a blast, he loved it, he wanted to ride the rides and play games, it was like he’d been there before, he’s a little pro at it now it seems…
but I didn’t take a digital camera with me since I have my phone, I figured that would be my camera.. so here’s a few pics:
I really didn’t take that many, it was just a bit much with the kids to keep track of everything, but the pics are pretty good for a cellphone
Edit: oh and this is my first post to this blog using Windows Live Writer, for whatever reason I see one of the thumbnails lnks to teh same picture.. oh well, it’s late.. I’m going to be
Exactly what I just said, it’s all a bunch of bull-poop!!
It’s May 28th and I’ve got to have my furnace on, it’s going to be in the 30s tonight.. the Fracking 30’s!!! That’s just a few degrees above freezing and it’s a few days before JUNE!!!!!!!
I thought Global Warming meant that it was getting warmer not COLDER!
But wait I could bet that if you mentioned something like this to one of those experts they’d tell you it’s cold BECAUSE of Global Warming, and I could also bet that if it was going to be 100 degrees tonight they would also say it’s because of global warming….
the average low according to the almanac is 53F, and the record low was 35F in 1971
May 28th and the upper 30’s for tonight… there’s something wrong with the science there, if it’s actually getting warmer then it shouldn’t be in the 30’s a few days before June
This sucks, yesterday I was sweating, today I’m freezing.. let me guess, that’s because of global warming right?
If you’re not from Pittsburgh you don’t understand the ‘an at’..
but anyway, so the people who had this house before us decided to add an addition to the house, it’s small room that is the laundry room, room enough for washer/dryer a little space to walk around and some shelves and cupboards, it’s off of the kitchen. It’s, I would estimate 10 feet x 15 feet, Nice idea but bad design, it’s actually a ‘real addition’ to the house, they knocked out some bricks, added a couple doors, plumbing and that’s it.. no heat at all, so every year the pipes would freeze, so of course they burst over the winter and ruined the floor and wall so I’m in process of repairing it.
The floor, well it was bad when we moved in, but throw a nice rug down and it’s fine, one of those things that I’ll get too eventually… well eventually is here, I decided to take a closer look at the damage and it’s not repairable without a whole lot of work and money, the floor that is, the walls are an easy fix, some drywall/paint and it’s done.
So I decided to just refinish the original hard wood flooring in the kitchen, three sub floors, two sets of tiles and one layer of linoleum later I’ve gotten down to the wood and surprisingly it’s not that bad, all of those layers protected it from the water. There were slight watermarks but they sanded right out with no problems, there is a funky patch in the back corner but no one will see it as the shelves and fridge will be there anyway so I’m not too worried about it.
Anyway I was doing a bit of this work on Saturday while my kids were home, and my 2 yr old thought it was really cool and watched me most of the time doing this, he says I broke the kitchen and floor… anyway I was sweeping up and of course there was dust there as well, a lot of dust actually and the baby was watching me and he says ‘daddy, you made broom smoke!’ Kids are a trip, especially him, he just comes up with the wildest things..
anyway, I’m just extremely busy, but then again when am I not? I’m also in process of redoing my steps as well, they’re concrete and I’m averaging every two years I need to repair them, it’s getting tedious and annoying. So I’m trying a new approach, I went and spent a few hundred dollars on treated wood planks to cover the steps with, those things are expensive at $13 a piece. Of course though that’s not the only expense, I needed special screws for the wood, and tapcons (special concrete anchor screws) and some liquid nails as well to be safe! Now I just need it to stop raining for a few days so I can get the steps done!
