I got the pasta dies for the KA mixer. Whoopee. The cavatelli/gnocchi maker should be here today! Giggle. We found a rolling "island" for the galley. It really makes a difference, there's a drawer, a two shelf cupboard and 2 open shelves (one with a basket). It can roll into the middle of the boat while I'm working (and DH can use one of the open shelves as a "coffee table" for the remote and his drink). At night we just roll it up against the counter and pull the futon out and go nighty.

I'm just lookin' for my "cheese"!

I thought this might be the year I could ask for one of those beautiful hand-painted Polish pottery bowls, but I guess not.
After 20 years of use, our kitchen stools are worn out. They're solid wood with backs and swivel seats (bought'em at Walmart for $79 each), and I must say they have been great...but they have really been put to hard use. This is where we sit to work, eat, and party.
So...my husband ordered new ones, and they are in, and will be delivered tomorrow. I will be so glad! I've been afraid I'd sit down and my stool would collapse with me.

Speaking of which...DH also put a new toilet seat on yesterday. Now I don't have to worry about sliding into the tub, either.

We get by with a little help from our friends

Well I just my taxes and I am getting back a hair under 12k this year so I will be paying off some bills and giving my kitchen a face lift.

We live in a condo and have a fairly small kitchen so I plan on dressing it up more so for resale and making it more organized. Right now I am planning on replacing the coutner tops, sink, faucet, and flooring. I am DIY'er so I am trying to knock it out for around 1k, which I dont think will be too hard. My father-in-law is a store manager at Lowes so I can get almost everything with an employee discount which will help.

pevaang, if you're getting 12K back in taxes, you need to adjust your w2.

think about it. a 12k return is a grand a month, or roughly $230 bucks more every week in your paycheck.

you're right. I knew this years return was going to big after last years. Last year I owed a total 27k, my state taxes I paid (4750) are deductable this year.

In 06 I got married and had a kid, so that helped, its bumped down from the 28% tax to 15% which saved me a lot. I will be altering my W-4s from claiming 2 to probably 4 this year, i dont want to change it too much because I would have the huge state tax deduction like i did for 06.

one of these: cast iron pot belly stove 8kw Natural Heating
to go in my new shed, it`s an 8 foot x 10 foot wooden shed in the back yard, and will be ideal too keep the place warm when I`m away from the Lab and want to do experiments anyway :)

One or two more accessories for the K'Aid Stand Mixers.

Maybe the Pasta Maker, Sassage Stuffer and Fruit / Veggie Strainer.
