Chin: The Spider-Noticerer...

Our cat, Chin, can spot spiders on our ceiling. She will sit and meow loudly at it until one of us comes in the room. She's noticed so many it's gotten to the point that whenever we see her staring at the ceiling we look up paranoid there's a spider. About half the time there actually is.

She did this last night and noticed a particularly huge and disgusting one. I think she was especially loud because it was so enormous. It was promptly caught and squished outside. Thanks, Chin.

Not quite to our expectations...

Yeah, okay. Maybe our expectations were a little high. Let's just hope somebody buys the house for what we list it at so we can break out ahead a little more than just even.

Felt like I did a Spinadoo Comic today! Instead of "Things in my pocket", it's "Things under my deck."

It was a crazy evening. One minute we're having a great conversation with my wife's cousin and the next her wedding band is gone! It was eight at night and getting dark. We had to wait until the next day to look under the deck. It was not an easy night's sleep.

It took my car jack, but I finally got that board up.

The ring! I feel like I should make some Lord of the Rings reference, but I'll leave that to my wife. Mmmm, my Precious! How's that?

Nothing like taking a shot of NyQuil with Cornelius staring back at you. Got him from the Corn Palace when we went on our honeymoon/road trip.

Sump Pump Drama...

I don't know if the picture makes much sense, but I'm cutting through the PVC pipe in the middle panels. I was almost all the way through (thankfully not all the way or the water would have been on the ceiling) when it suddenly kicked in! It's hard to believe how strong those sump pumps are. There was water spraying three to four feet in all directions! Everything was soaked.

I had plugged that thing in and out tons of times. I turned the little bobber all kinds of directions and the thing wouldn't kick in. Why it did when I was cutting I'll never understand. Either way I went ahead and installed the new one without much of an adventure after that.

I don't think I've ever seen my wife move so fast! She was down there in a flash and managed to grab the camera on the way. Shsssh...

From good to bad...

It was a stressful day for my wife in the beginning, but worked out great in the end. Congratulations to my wife! She got a new job and now makes triple what she did before! Awesomeness!

Too good to be true...

CiCi's sounds too good to be true, but if it is, I know where I'm going to be eating every Friday night.

Got some work to do...

Yesterday's post, watercolored and finished.

Trying my hand at drawing my niece, Nora. I've got some work to do. How are you suppose to draw a two year old's eyes?
