Things of interest or lack thereof:
1. We sold a bunch of stuff on craigslist the other day and got full asking price! Usually people try to drive down the price at the last second, not this time. We sold an elliptical machine that I found in the garbage the other day.It was practically brand new C700 Proform elliptical machine that sells in Target for almost 300 dollars. The only thing wrong wa that it was missing a screw, so I put one in and sold it for 100 bones on craigslist. Woohoo!
2. We ate at Chili's the other day and I found a tooth with a cavity in my nachos.It was hidden within the sour cream. Sick!
3. Last night it poured here in Vegas, I mean POURED! We were driving home and I seriously could not see the lane I was driving in. I can't imagine what people go through when there's a hurricane or tornado or any other crazy weather. We're definitely lucky to live in vegas, where the only thing we have to worry about is the heat.

Guaci's parents were here throughout May. We had a lot of fun while they were here and managed to get down to Arizona one weekend for my niece's baptism. I especially enjoyed all the great Spanish food that my mother in law made. She made tortilla espanola, ensaladilla rusa, croquetas, ropa vieja, caldo de huevo, and so many more great dishes that we haven't had in a long while. I also turned 32 on the 4th. I feel like I'm 25 though. But with more aches and pains and a few gray hairs.


So much for trying to get in at least one post a month. April flew by without much excitement. I continued with the remodelling of our home, trying to get prepared for the arrival of Guaci's parents from Spain on April 29. Well, they arrived and I had not gotten nearly as much done as I had hoped for. Most of the wooden floors were installed throughout the house with the exception of the stairwell. Most of the the tiling was done as well, with the exception of the bathrooms. House was painted, some new furniture was bought (Thanks IRS refund!) and all in all, the house looked really nice by the time the in-laws arrived. To be honest, I still have a few things that need to be done, ie. some baseboard that needs to be installed and a few things in the master bath. Guaci's dad helped us out a lot by doing the tile in the bathrooms as well as the entryway. He also changed out one of the bathroom sinks and put in a pedestal sink.

Facebook Rocks!

I joined the facebook community a few months back to follow the crowd. It seemed at the time the cool thing to do. It still is. I have been able to touch base with many people that I have not spoken to in years. Today I got in touch with another old friend that I haven't spoken to in about ten years or so.
One of the features on facebook that I like is "Owned". It's hard to explain what it is without it sounding a little creepy, but let's just say, somebody bought me for$12,000!

Family addition

No, Guaci is not prego. We got a DOG!!! I was working a few days ago and Guaci called and said this lady was selling miniature Dobermans and she was getting one for the girls. I don't know if she was asking me or informing me. Anyway, they picked out a 6 week old dog and took him home. When I got home, I asked Tami what the dog's name is. I was expecting something like Stitch, or Koda,or something. But no. She named him Eric.!???? I said," umm Tami? Are you sure you want to name him Eric? What if you're at the park and you yell,'Hey Eric' and some boy runs over to you?" She agreed and so she decided on calling him Coby, after Guaci's German Shepard that she had when she was growing up. So far, he's been well behaved. He cried a lot the first night though because he misses his mama. We're excited to have him with us, and I know he's already made the girls so happy. They can't wait to get home when we go somewhere so they can play with him.
On another note, I can't believe I didn't write anything in February! I can get lazy sometimes. I'm not promising that I'll write something every day, or even every week, but I'll try to get some inkling of an update a couple times a month. So check up on us from time to time.
I'll be working on a new project starting on Monday. We are doing a remodel at the Caesar's Palace Forum Shops. Finally, after six months at the Springs Preserve we finished our punchlist. Now on to bigger and better things.

Lazy Sunday

I love Sundays. Especially these lazy sundays when I don't have a lot of church meetings to attend and whatnot. I love to stay in with the family and just veg out on the couch. It was raining today too so that made me feel that much lazier. Trust me, the lazier the bettter. I was sad to see that President Hinckley, the President and current prophet of our church died today. He was a sweet man. On the other hand, I am happy that he is reunited with his wife who died a few years ago.
