Haha. Yeah - the peeing part is true for the boys. I'm just north of New Caney and south of Splendora. I don't mind being out here. We have an acre and a half and my home is about 2100 sq ft and I got it for a steal. It's a great place to raise a family, but it's not fun for working or going to school downtown.

congrats Brandy. I too took my first voyage (besides commuting) on the new bike last night. Rode up through the forest after dark. 15 degrees cooler in those woods easily...I don't remember the forest always being 55 mph limit although I kept it tame since I didn't want to override my headlights.

Don't tell! My mom yelled at me when she found out! Ween is offshore, so his closet is empty. I'll get the Klondike bar and let myself in.

Yay! I'm not sure I would even try to ride through the forest at night - deer and hogs and raccoon! How do you feel today?

I am SO sore. My back is killing me and my hips are sore. My shoulders are tight - it was ALL worth it!

I felt pretty good all things considered. I'm beating myself up worse with the home renovations than riding a 120 miles. 3 new toilets installed with new valves and 3 bathrooms painted this weekend....now if I could just get the popcorn ceiling texture to spray out of the can without clogging I'll be in good shape. Ready for the reno's to be done...only 3 more rooms to paint (and KILZ) and 900 sf of laminate flooring to install. My back is certain to kill me after all that.

Sounds like fun...

Just think of the finished product - how great it will all look when you're done. It's so worth it.

I don't envy the elevation differences for sure...unless there is a snowboard attached to my feet or a motor between my legs.

This ceiling texture has me baffled....been through 3 cans to cover a 2'x8' drywall repair....went to look at the "how to" video link on the can....decided to read the reviews. Glad it's not the operator. lol Sorry for the threadjack Brandy....

me too, but I gotta match what is already there....2700 sf is a lot of texture removal and sanding. Older home = older styles...and some I have to live with. Did the whole slap brush with compound on one wall....it looks okay. Definitely not my forte.

not so sorry for the hijack this go 'round!

I grew up with smooth walls. You rarely saw any sort of texture up there. When you did see it, it looked as if they were trying to cover a crappy finishing job. I came down here, and WHOA... popcorn everywhere!

If you want a milder texture that still matches older house style, use a real heavy knap roller, and keep the texture fairly thick. Much quicker and easier than a brush but it does make a mess... cover EVERYTHING including yourself!
