Tuesday Treasure Trove


Things of Note:

I discovered this weekend that I am a Disney purist. The boy surprised me with an early Valentine’s present: tickets to see the traveling Broadway production of The Lion King, which was a great surprise and fun show. But in order to make it a standard stage-length show instead of movie-length, they had added in a few songs. And it was clear Elton John and Tim Rice hadn’t laid a finger on those additions. Apparently the boy is a Disney purist as well, because he heartily agreed. Luckily it didn’t really detract too much from the show, and the puppetry was amazing. Definitely a good time. 🙂

Aside from more Vday stuff later this week, we’re doing some house upkeep. We’re finally attending to all the little annoying things that need fixing around the house (or rather, paying a handyman to attend to them). Doors that don’t shut properly, toilets that run unless you jiggle the handle, leaky faucet replacement – that kind of thing. It’s step one in our fix-up-the-house plan. After these little things, next on the list is re-tiling the kitchen. It’s currently got cheap linoleum that’s peeling up in a few places, and the boy & I would both prefer some real tile. Then more floor stuff in other areas of the house, and once all that’s done I can paint! There will be color in our beige beige world!

No, it’s not a new house. The boy has lived here for 5 years, and myself for 2.5. I’m not sure why it took until now for him to want to do all this kind of stuff, but I’m not complaining! Maybe it’s because we know in a few years we’ll be moving to a new place and he wants to rent this place out. Doesn’t hurt that it will make it nicer to live in while we’re here, too.

Anyway, that’s what’s up in my world lately! How are things in your world?
