Some vinyl planks down.

The temperatures have sure been mighty low for us this season.  The cold weather has hung on the longest this year than it has ever.  That is the most talked about subject here in Florida.
We have had long stretches of  50's in the day time  and 40's-30's night time.

I have been busy, or should I say enjoying watching college basketball games.  An old fella has to take breaks from working, doesn't he.

But I'm still working on the floors and walls.

This is the slide out with the new Allure vinyl planks installed.  I hope it will not be very long until the rest of the floor will be covered.
The planks are really very good to work with and looks good when put down.  You just have to make sure you start out getting a nice straight line .

It is taking longer than I thought it would because I have to move things around and put them back as many as four or more times.

Upon taking up the old carpet from around the bed that's in the slide out I discovered it has been leaking and will need to put new flooring in.

I don't think they build unit's with the slide out that doesn't leak when it rains.
I know some of you are saying "my slide out does not leak.   Just wait long enough it will.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Doctors and games

Wow, it seems like a lot of people are thinking that the teams that won in the NFL playoff games were the wrong ones.  I watched both games and as usual the officiating crew did blow a few calls.

Well anyway life must go on.

Nancy did finally saw her Nephrologist  and the report on her blood work was not what she wanted to hear. Her numbers had fallen from the last time and also her doctor didn't like the swelling with the fluid.  So she told Nancy to take the fluid pills every day up from every other day.

About a week ago I ordered a HD King Jack from Amazon to replace the old house top antenna.
The Jack antenna attaches were the old one comes off so I can raise and lower it.
Like advertised it does pick up more channels and we are satisfied with it.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Last few days

Nancy had her blood drawn on Wednesday, so we thought we would just go ahead and have our early supper out
She asked where I would like to eat, so I said I haven't had Chinese food for a while.  With that choice we were off to Royal Buffet, no luck there since they were still closed for remodeling.

The next one we thought of was a little restaurant we would try place and it was on the way back home.
Well we struck out again because when got there it was closed because they only stay open until three o'clock. (strike two)
I said to Nancy I know of another place I have been wanting to go to.
Well when we got there was a sign on the door the said   "Closed today"  (strike three).
With that we ended up going back home to eat.

Friday evening Nancy got a call from her nephrologist that she would have to be at the LabCorp office to have her blood drawn again.
It seem like someone along the line had not got all the information on the previous blood that was needed.
It was back to LabCorp again yesterday to have her blood drawn again which was no fun for Nancy.

But I did get to watch my college basketball games yesterday so the whole day was not lost.

How was your last few days?

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Moving slow

Well the carpet is all gone from the dining  area.  While the bench seats and the sofa was out I finished priming the walls, so the next step will be the choice of color that we have picked.
I hope it will take one coat but you never know until you have put it on and let dry.

Nancy was suppose to have some blood drawn yesterday but LabCorp closed at 3:00 and not at 5:00 as we thought so it will be another trip today.
This is for her kidney doctor to look and see how her kidney are doing.

Some of you have suggested  that Nancy not drink the faucet water and drink bottled water instead.
Well we have been drinking the bottled water from the year 2000 when we started this full time life style.

Nancy is always reading up on some of the things that might help her that she will try.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Its got to be done

With some doctor appointments for Nancy and the holidays its been tough trying to do the work on the walls and floors of the motor home.

I did get half of the carpet taken up in the dining table area Monday then yesterday it was back to the doctor to check on Nancy's lab work.
She has been in a lot more pain the last few weeks and the lab work report didn't show anything different so all the pain is coming from her kidneys.

It will be back to pulling up the carpet in the dining area today.  If it was just pulling the carpet up it would not be so bad.  But first the bench seat needs to be moved out, then after the carpet is removed every half an inch along the wall is not one but at least three staples to be removed. 
Someone must be getting paid by how many staples they use up.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Our Little Celebration

Nancy  was feeling fairly good Monday so we went to Spring Hill to the Cody's Road House Restaurant for our Anniversary dinner.  We have been here before and really enjoy the food with the bottomless big bowl of salad that is always so fresh,

I just about forgot to take a photo of our meal.  I had the 10 oz top sirloin with fries.

While Nancy had the 10 oz top sirloin ith the mixed vegetables of the day.

We did take our time eating and having a little time out to ourselves.

After getting back home we started putting the mixings together for cabbage rolls. We have had cabbage rolls for our New Years Day for a life time and they tasted good as usual.

We stayed up to watch the big celebration of the Ball Dropping on the ABC Network.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
