The Project That Ate The Kitchen



Two weeks ago last night our friend Moose can over and we started a simple project to extend a cable in our living room wall from Point A to Point B.

Should have been simple enough.

Alas, two weeks later what was a simple job in the living room now includes almost all of the furniture in our living room having been given away, painters taking over the house, wallpaper being ripped from walls in two bathrooms and the kitchen, and in the next few days, a new room being finished off where currently stands our screened-in porch.

When we started today’s program, we had full wallpaper in the kitchen. As you can see from the picture above (taken right after the show) and below-right (actually taken during one of breaks at the top of the hour), significantly more progress has been made than we expected.

Got to say, it’ll be really interesting having paint in the kitchen and bathrooms.

It was also a lot of fun to have Moose stop by the studio and join us for today’s program. Great guy, this coffee-man. And he can get away with wearing yellow shirts quite well (see below)!

Thanks, also, to Fr. Bill Kessler for being our regular Monday guest again. Be sure to check out Fr. Bill’s Technopriest podcast over at SQPN!

And lastly, the picture all the way at the bottom shows just how long Jennifer’s hair is getting. Very, very long.

I cannot relate to long hair.

  • Really enjoyed the segment with Moose today! What a guy! What a friend! What a witness!

  • My mother gave me a haircut. It is on the short side. She told me that with the new baby I will want to have shorter, lower-maintenance hair. Like, whatever. I just don’t put up a fight anymore.

    I like the glimpse of the baby bump. And it is good to see Moose in front of a microphone! πŸ™‚

  • @Matt – The wallpaper was peeling all over the place in every room we had it. Plus, we had a border in the kitchen and you would be able to see it through the paint.

    I’ve had a couple other people ask about this, as well. Is that a common thing, to paint over wallpaper? I’ve always assumed that it HAD to be removed.

    @Zina – Don’t give Jennifer any ideas! Not only do I like the long hair, but every time she’s cut it short, she’s hated it! Unfortunately, she forgets that she hated it. πŸ™‚
