Parties, Plumbing and Pickens County Museum

First the party. Last night the team I work with at school was invited over to one of my best friend's house to a cookout. I am lucky to work with the coolest people in the world. We had a ball. The night was cool, the food and drink were great, and we talked about everything from movies to music to real life ghost stories. We are going to try to get together every couple of weeks just to let off steam.

Campbell and Claire stayed home to spend time with their dogs, and when I got here they had been practicing their instruments together. Claire had been teaching Campbell some tunes on his trombone. They said they had been playing for about an hour and a half. I could almost recognize the tune Campbell performed for us. He will be good if he keeps practicing.

The Pickens County Museum is second. Yeah Dan! He just got a job working at the Pickens County Museum. I haven't heard him this happy since I met him. He is so glad to be out of Lowe's with the horrible schedule and the brain numbing monotany. He is very talented and will add experience, creativity, and great planning and problem solving to the organization. He has a lot going on right now and this seems to be perfect timing. I am selfishly excited that he will have a regular schedule and consistant days off.

Last, the plumbing. I have had a flooded basement and was piddling around with the bathtub pipes when the spout came out in my hand. Question answered and hopefully a pretty easy fix. I wonder if it was ever glued when it was put in. It was only a couple of years ago that I had a new one installed. I wish that I could tear the whole thing out and put in a shower and build some shelves in there, but I just can't afford that right now. Claire is downstairs cleaning the basement shower so that she and Campbell can use it. I took some pictures of what I am dealing with so that I can show it to Dan and he can help me plan my attack.

I am going to print my pictures, take a shower, fold some laundry, work on a job chart for my class and get myself cleaned up. I need to run by school and feed the class fish and take the kids over to my parents. Dan's dad and his wife are taking us out to celebrate the new job tonight at the Cliffs. I haven't been there before and am looking forward to it. It is a beautiful fall day. The windows are all open in the house and the crisp air is refreshing. A great day to be in Western North Carolina.
