So I’m sure some of you have noticed the sudden silence on this blog.
And if you have followed my other blog, you might have assumed the sudden silence was because I suck, and am lame, and am just not blogging for whatever unacceptable reason.
But you would be wrong!
I mean, yes, I am guilty of those afflictions. But in this case, it’s not directly a result of said accusations!
It’s because we took some time off from the projects. It was rather involuntary actually. I make it sound like we took a vacation or something. Rather, Trevor has been inundated with schoolwork which left me somewhat high and dry when it comes to working on the Coach.
He’s, like, extremely handy or something…and I sort of use him for his brain and creepy ability to know just about anything and everything when it comes to electricity, plumbing, carpentry, or any other thing that ends in “y” or “ing” that involves restoring an RV.
But then I decided to strike out on my own!
Reclaim my independence!
Have some faith that I have learned enough to branch out on my own and not burn anything down. Or break something beyond fixing. Or maim myself to the extent that I might cry for my mother.
So I sat down and thought about all the things we have to do on the Coach, and then thought about all the things that didn’t require either a second set of hands, or the higher skills and education for which I rely so helplessly on my husband for.
And that is how I came up with this weekend’s project.
I installed a new microwave!
There once was a gaping hole where a microwave lived:
And along came a nice, brand new, fancy schmancy microwave that has NEW! and COOL! and revolutionary! Inverter Turbo Defrost technology!
And it made a nice little home in the previously gaping hole so Mary and Trevor could enjoy microwaved popcorn and reheated leftovers whenever they pleased:
*well…sort of. I still have to finish the trim around the edges. But hey! We have a microwave now and I did it without loosing a single finger, or breaking anything beyond repair.
