After the Storm

No damage - just a lot of water!

Filming Follow Up

I left the house while the cooking show was being filmed, but after everyone packed up and left for the day, I was left a nice surprise....
A sink full of dirty dishes!
And yes, some leftovers - some were fantastic (almost made it worth it)

The Calm Before The Storm

Mike spent HOURS last night cleaning the pool. All I kept thinking was we're supposed to be getting a "Historical Storm" on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
Why bother?

As you can also see, the pool is open and although it is not warm - yet - we're ready!

Hollywood Arrives

Why is it that every time you agree to do something nice, it always turns into a HUGE pain and inconvenience?

Our local cable company - Charter - appoached us and asked if they could use our kitchen to film a new cooking show for local restaurants. (This came by way of recommendation of a friend's boyfriend who is a chef, but working as a plumber, having spent time over at our house).

After being nicely flattered, I, of course, had to know what was in it for us.

Free advertising for Mike's business and the house - which is wonderful, but I would have preferred free cable for life.

This is what I have gotten out of it: we have the stickers off the front windows and the front door painted.
In return, the dogs have been banished from the house and I have to get ready for work before 8:00 am & strange people in my home all day.
Maybe there will be leftovers?

Can't Leave Out Chloe

We brought George into our lives so Chloe doesn't completely chew her leg off with her "separation anxiety". She is adapting to her new brother nicely and only gnaws on her leg half of the day now.
It's All For Chloe.....
