Must…Focus…Master…Bedroom

By: | Tags: | Comments: 4

We have so many projects going on in this house, that it seems like nothing ever gets done. It's way too easy to get side tracked, which is proving to be very counter-productive. Stefan and I talked about this and we have decided to focus on one room at a time, in order to stay on track. So,

By: | Tags: | Comments: 7

Stefan and I have been shopping for our master bedroom furniture for a few weeks. We have stopped at every furniture store that we could find from Rincon to Mayaguez (Sears, Pitusa, Berrios, Rooms to Go, Seduca, etc) and have been highly unsuccessful in our mission for a nice bedroom set. The handful of times that we have

By: | Tags: | Comments: 5

Chichieto has been named, wormed, shot and fattened up, and he's starting to ease his way into the family. He has doubled in size since we found him and we moved him out of the crate into the downstairs bathroom. We are still keeping Cheech and the dogs separated, but the dogs are starting to get used to

By: | Tags: | Comments: 6

Lorenz has a chicken in a bag, in his trunk. It's his new pet. Stefan and I ran into Carrie (Lorenz's girlfriend) at the convenience store today and she told us that Lorenz was in Ponce and apparently he decided to buy a chicken as a pet. I think Lorenz may be drinking Jameson. (only in Puerto Rico...)

I caught some really good waves in La Jolla the first few days and one short lived great beach break session in Oceanside (Water Temp=52 degrees).

We All Named the Kitty!

By: | Tags: | Comments: 3

I am sorry for holding you guys in suspense for so long about what we are going to name the cat. It seems that my vote, much like our Puerto Rican Vote in the US presidential election, is not going to count. Our kitty's name is not going to Buck Rogers, it is going to be Chichieto (Cheech

It really is nice to be back in California for a couple of days. I think it is just healthy to get off of the island and away from the construction site. It clears out all of the tropical cobwebs and I really haven't thought of the house work that needs to be done once. This is our

Summer and I packed up all of our stuff (that we are brining to California) and headed to the airport this morning. Eddie and his two girls are watching the house, the two dogs, the cat (name to be announced momentarily), the lawn, the new plants, the Bronco and the Toyota. Along with the above mentioned family we

Advice from a Do-It-Yourselfer

By: | Tags: | Comments: 8

I am such a novice in this construction thing. I was a typical office worker (that surfed and came from a fairly active background) that was making some money and decided to give up the life in the fast lane for a couple acres in Puerto Rico and a fun little project (sarcasm). Finish a six bedroom, two
