We need a garage

Only those who know how much remodeling we've done on our house will find this funny. But earlier today my brother asked us, in all seriousness, "Do you have a saw?"

Hmm, let's see how many we have:

1. circular saw
2. miter saw
3. another miter saw
4. hack saw
5. coping saw
6. miter block saw
7. basic wood saw
8. drywall saw
9. saw that we use to cut the bottoms off of christmas trees (I forget the name)
10. dremel tool attachment saws
11. jig saw

What's missing? Let's see: a table saw, radial arm saw, tile saw (but we have a the diamond blade for one that we attach to our circular saw to cut tile), ....???? Can you think of any others?

I think we've got the saws covered, Erik. Take your pick. :)

A Little Mix-up

A common phrase from Waimea:

"My chapstick hurts. I need some lips!"

First Real Haircut

I have never officially cut Waimea's hair. The bangs have been trimmed, and a few straggly ends snipped here and there, but never cut. Until today. I'm done with the bangs thing, and with her not letting me do ANYTHING with her hair, including comb it, I'm done with the long hair thing, too. It doesn't help that the humidity is gone in the winter, and with it, her curls. She has been looking pretty scruffy recently, and I am tired of it. Luckily she was willing, practically begging to get it cut. So we had a few minutes today, and that's really all it took. A straight cut across the bottom, slightly angled up in the back, with a few attempts at some layers. I really had no idea what I was doing, but I don't think it turned out too bad. What do you think?

Here is the before:

And the after:

Loving these car conversations...

Today Waimea had a friend come over for a visit. They were chatting it up in the car on the way to our house. Here are a few snippets of conversation that I overheard:

W: "I don't eat boogers anymore because I'm a big girl. Big girls don't eat boogers."


C: "If I jump over a car, then you have to jump over a watermelon."
