Work, work, work

We have been slowly working on getting some things done around the house.  Some of them easy (cleaning up the yard), and some of them more involved.
Last week Chris decided to tackle the bathroom fan.  You can read a little of his point of view here.  I made myself busy around the yard so that I didn't hear the profanities yelled in frustration.  There was really nothing I could do, except keep a straight face while he ranted and fetch water when needed.  In the end he got it done and it works.  He has also been working on making his man-cave a little more lively.  He has the white background done and is waiting to paint the Chicago colours.  It has been so damp that all painting projects are on hold right now, as I'm not sure the paint will cure.  I have paint for the bathroom and trim to paint all over the house, but in the mean time I've been doing a DIY frame project for my livingroom wall.
We were hoping (well, I was anyway) to get the kitchen painted and new light fixtures put in before September, but this was contingent on us getting part-time jobs for the Summer.  Yes, we are going to work during our summer vacation.  Well we were.  Apparently, even though there are a lot of Now Hiring signs out, they are being picky about who they hire.  We wanted to work for the Summer, but no one wants to hire us because we want to work for the Summer.  They are looking for long time employees in many of the places that we applied, so as of right now, we are not working for the Summer.  Oh well.  I'll just have to wait for my kitchen.  I do have a table on it's way though and I'm super excited about that.
Well I should get going, so many books to read, so little time....
