We'll miss you Winston the Dog.
As if that wasn't enough, the other child, Banana, decided last Thursday, when my son didn't find a piece of food he actually wished to keep in his stomach, that it would be a good day to eat a...marble. Needless to say, there was pandemonium here at the Castle. My lovely wife was in the shower when my son burst into the room screaming that Banana was choking. My wife sprung into action and ran downstairs to a baby who was turning blue. Needless to say, a fruitless car drive, a call to 911, an ambulance ride and several x-ray's later, my wonderful daughter is the proud owner of some miscellaneous round object in her gut. Now, the poo watch. We get the joy of sifting through dirty diapers looking for the marble. None, yet. A return to the doctor today revealed the marble has only moved slightly, but at least it has moved. That's a good sign. Don't worry, I don't have any pictures of the dirty diapers. No need to turn away.
There was some house work, though, that got completed amongst the chaos. I'm building a built in cabinet for a downstairs closet. This will become my wife's workstation for her scrapbooking and a place where the kids can do their homework. We got the center section stained and polyurethaned this weekend.
This center section of cabinets is going to go between the two side towers of shelves below.
Well, that's a crooked little picture. I'm thinking the tripod may begin to come in handy. The center cabinet will go between the top two shelves of the two towers. Once that's completed, four drawers will be built for the four gaping holes in the bottom two cabinets supporting the desk top. After that...trim work. Never a dull moment on the homestead.
