The Mister's surgery day is fast approaching and we've got a giant list of things we have to accomplish before then. First up was getting rid of all the piles of tools and materials we had laying around from the bathroom re-dos. We have the very bad habit of starting a new job before we clean up the old job. As of today everything is put away since we will be taking a break through the summer while he recovers. We are far from done with this house re-doing stuff but the rest of it will keep until fall.
After the clean up my goal was to set up a space for him to work on puzzles while he's recovering in hopes of keeping Mr. Ants in the Pants still. I bought him one of those fancy puzzle boards and a new puzzle to get him started.
He thought the kitty one I had bought earlier was too hard so I got him these. He's been grumbling about them but then he also grumbled about the paint by number kits I bought him last year.
Now the man cave has it's own paint by number station where he spends the greater part of every day anymore. I'm not complaining. Anything he does that doesn't involve me is that much more time I get to spend doing stuff I want to do.
And....it's been nine months now since Pup's hip surgery and she's finally learned how to get up the stairs with her bad leg. That's a huge relief for me since she's no lightweight and getting her up and down the stairs all day to take her out has been no fun. With The Mister out of commission soon that job would have all fallen on me and now.....thank goodness-she can finally get up on her own. Getting down is another thing-but I'll take all the help I can get.
