Sweet justice time. Trust me I'm grinning ear to ear over this one.
Who would have thought a cheap $26.00 buck investment for materials would accomplish sooooo much.

I just finished redoing some cheapy dining room chairs. Bought the foam, staple gun, extra staples. 3yards of brand new material at Savers for .99. Put it all to work.

I asked my husband for his old uniforms for material. They were free. Dissected the chairs and uniforms. Reupholstered all the chairs. They turned out really nice. I've never taken on a project like that. They look like they have been professionally done.

Sweet justice? You bet. I don't like my husbands occupation. It's 95% of my stress level. It's been bumped down every time I see those chairs to 85. Because now I can sit on them as loooooong as I want!

Happy Munky.
Happy Munky indeed. Did the Rotisserie come with a recipe book? If not, can you download one for him? Nothing like saving a dollar where ever you can. Leaves you with a great feeling.

Actually it came with 2. The original and the additional Ronco dieters pamphlet. Plus the VHS tape that he thought was hilarious. I'll jot down my basic recipes. He can take it and do his own thing. Just to get him started.

Who ever had that rotisserie before me must have bought or intended it to be a gift for someone. It actually had more ties and goodies added to it then the platinum one that I bought.

Just heard he took it to work this morning. Those guys are making Tri Tips on it for lunch.

Hubby's friends are donating their old uniforms to me. "She can have mine to!!!!" They thought it was funny what I did with them. Cleverrrr


Munky.

Got a phone call from the people who adopted Hope (Trinity of Hope Dog Rescue) was named in honour of Hope. Unfortunately, they called about a 5-6 yr. old Saint that needs help (owner got transferred, can't take the dog). I would take him in a heartbeat but I'm leaving for MN to take care of my mom and have don't have a place to park him while I'm gone. It was nice to hear from them....
