Adventures In Home Rehab.

On episode 17 of “Rehab My Trailer” Dave manages to cut 10 foot of kitchen counter top while using a circular saw and jig saw. Miraculously, he manages to do so and keep all of his fingers and toes! On a side note, one of the cuts was actually straight!

Meanwhile, his partner Mykie preps for the hanging of the oven hood by filling the hole in the wall with a piece of dry wall, then proceeds to spackle and paint over the spot seamlessly. After doing a fine job on that she proceeds to go grocery shopping, now that we have room for food, and unpacks a bazillion boxes in the office, only to discover that the wall that the desk is on does not contain a single outlet! Luckily, with the help of Dave, she manages to plug a power strip in the outlet behind the book case.

On a tragic note, the newly built microwave cart loses its head in a horrible accident. There are some humorous moments in the show as well: Prepare to laugh as Dave and Mykie chase down both the cat and dog, when their two adventurous pets decide to make a break for it at the same time!  You’ll chuckle, as the shower curtain comes down on Mykie’s head while she rigorously fights off the dog, who wants to take a shower with her!

What fun!

Stayed tuned for tomorrow’s episode of “Rehab My Tailor”. Let’s see what kind of home make over adventures our two heroes get into on Labor Day!

While I do wish everyone a day filled with family, food, and football, I think it’s important to stop and think about what this day symbolizes to Native Americans. While I’m happy and thankful for all the wonderful people in my life, as well as the fact that I have a decent job, a roof over my head, and food to eat, this is still a bittersweet day for me. Native Americans were systematically removed from the land that they revered by us, and to this day, they are still marginalized and oppressed. They deserved and deserve better, and I’m deeply ashamed that my ancestors were a part of this great American tragedy. This is a great article that I’ve linked to: please take a few minutes to check it out.

A Facebook friend posted this as her status today. Truer words never spoken.
“I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.
