I was pretty pumped because of all the cleaning that I had just done and I was also excited about Mom opening her gifts from me. :-)
Mom loved the faucet and the fluorescent lamp. Woohoo!! I was talked into putting the lamp together and the manufacture's claims that it was as bright as a 300-watt halogen lamp were correct! I was very impressed. Plus, the fixture itself is very elegant looking.
For lunch, Mom wanted to go to Wolf Creek Brewing Company. They have a great Turkey Club that Mom loves. Hehehe - just in case you were wondering, none of us ordered any brew. ;-) I ordered Blackened Mahi and spend most of the meal sniffling and wiping my nose because it was so spicy. :P It was great though.
Nana left within minutes of arriving back home and I began working to replace the old kitchen faucet with the new one. Low and behold, I needed to replace the flexible hoses and I needed a basin wrench to get the old faucet off. Woohoo!! New tools!!
After getting back from Homo Depot with the new tools (yeah, I got carried away), Mom let me know that Dan had called. It was funny because Mom was half asleep when she was telling me, so all I really heard was, "Dan...mumble, mumble...phone...mumble, mumble...tell you that he called...." Hehehe - I called Dan back and he and I talked as I continued with the faucet replacement.
Dan and I had a good talk and he and I finished our conversation as I was picking up my tools from the faucet replacement. I'm pretty good. I was able to install the new kitchen faucet AND talk to Dan at the same time. :-) Hehehe. I did have to set the phone down for about 30 seconds when I needed to tighten one of the nuts.
That was pretty much my day. Now I'm catching up on LJ and responding to email.
