Well we've been open for a while now & already had our first Art Show. It was a great success & I can't wait to have more! We've got more cleaning up in the back half of the bottom floor that we should be finished with soon & then we can start on the top floor, again. Our goal is to remodel the small bathroom that is already upstairs, so that we can go ahead and move in! So in about 6 months, we should be living Downtown!!

What a week....

It was a bad week to be a pet in the Daniel home.....Monday Joe walked up to me and said "Kari...I've got some bad news...Bubbles passed away sometime last night." Well Bubbles is our fish...she was about 6 years old so I was okay with her death...she was old... Well then, I guess it was Tuesday, Joe was standing outside with Wicket and he saw me coming....normally he waits till he is done pottying and I am out of the car to come run up and jump on me...but this time he took off into the street and was next to my driver side door. Course I freaked out and Joe says I'm over-reacting but I almost ran over my Baby!!! Well when I pulled into the driveway on Thursday Joe was standing there to let me know the sad news that Bender (our other fish) had also passed. Apparently Bubbles just wants old...the heater broke on the aquariame and the water was at 115 degrees. So 2 of our 3 pets didnt make it to the end of the week. THEN Not only during all this pet sadness I lost my credit card! I left it at a clothing store that is going out of business and she cant find it...So I had to call an cancel the card..which wouldnt be so bad but the lady on the phone tried to get me to sign up for that identity protection think and of course I said no, to which she responded 'Well you did just lose your credit card, and if this happened again you would...blah blah blah blah.' It was just kind of condesinding. Anyways...so here are the pictures that I promised a while back.


Just a boring update...

Well I promised a post last night so here ya go! Not much is going on other than just working on the building still. :( We've rented 2 different "tile scrappers" and they didn’t really work very well :( We are still scrapping up the tile I was talking about on April 10. BUT....Joe got a 3rd scrapper machine thingy today and it works!!! We SHOULD be done with the floor this week!!! :D I'll get some pictures taken and try to post them tomorrow. Really...other than that there’s not really much going on! Today was first day being part-time at my job instead of full time. I went to lunch with my Mom, Ace and Sophia and it was just weird sitting there at lunch realizing...I don’t have to go back to work!! But I enjoyed getting to do some other stuff....I cleaned house a little bit, scrapped floor (didn’t really enjoy that part) and went and bought some new pants and then went to yoga class. Still not eating that fruit I said I was going to but I go to yoga every Monday, last Wednesday and Friday Joy and I went to Pilates class. We were going to start taking that class every week but it’s 50 something dollars a month and we just don’t want to spend that much money. Anyways....I guess I'll get some pictures up tomorrow...Good night!!
