    What did you do today?

    That's, pretty cool, CJ. I stayed in bed most of the day trying to rest my back. Standing and sitting hurt. Been alternating heat and cold. My brother used my bathroom and left the door open so cats got in and knocked stuff down. Ugh. Other than that, I'm just feeling run down/tired. But at...

    Discoloration of finish on Vinyl Floor Planks

    Apple cider vinegar is what is usually recommended for vinyl. Do not use alcohol as it can damage vinyl. As others said, do not use bleach because it will interact with the ammonia. (As an aside, never mix acetone and bleach either). You might try white vinegar on a scrap to see if it damages...

    What did you do today?

    My uncle was in the Navy and father was in the Army so I heard both of them use it. I need to call my uncle. He's just getting over Covid, but I went and pulled my damn back while bending to put bubble wrap in a box while packing Mom's laptop to send back. Not even sure how. I wasn't bending...

    What did you do today?

    I always misheard the Secret Agent Man song as "Secret Asian Man". Those look like 1950s diner tiles in the See's Candies place. I attempted to remove the red stain from my sheet vinyl. No joy yet. I can't remember if the thing that stained it was wood or plastic but I remember the handle was...

    My bathroom floor project

    Quote a bit of the water is coming from the condensate line from the AC. The installers ran it so it terminated under the house and drips down. I may have to pile up some bricks and try to figure out how to get that one pier that fell back up. It dropped about a foot and I can see that the...

    What did you do today?

    Highup, the Restores never advertised and most people didn't know they existed. I didn't find out about them until shortly before they closed. A lot of businesses shut down in my area though. I found a Conair vibrating heating pad that I have on my back. Comes with velcro straps so you can...

    What did you do today?

    The only HfH ReStore near my area shut down. :-( Got woken up from Mom spazzing out because she couldn't follow the simple instructions of using the TV remote to click Input and then selecting HDMI 3. She paged me and was screaming at me about it. I repeated the instructions. She kept screaming...

    What did you do today?

    I cooked rice, did some cleaning, went to the store, served the rice and some shrimp scampi to Mom, ate a salad, & then used some high grit pumice stones to gently scrub inside the sink. I'll take pictures in the daytime because the pictures turn out better in the daylight. My mat slipped and I...

    What did you do today?

    Started cleaning my fugly sink. Barkeeper's friend did not work, but vinegar and baking soda had more effect. Let the paste sit an hour and scrubbed, then did another application and let it sit longer. Power went out for 2 hours so I waited and it got dark. Been going in and scrubbing as much as...

    What did you do today?

    Nice! I hope you win, Rusty. Stomach isn't feeling so good this morning. Just had to nearly fight a cat to get my Pepto out of the plastic drawers he's sitting on. He's making the top sink in & the pepto got stuck and he was mad that I disturbed him. LOL. I just petted him and he's climbing on...

    What did you do today?

    Even kiln-fired glaze can come off if the cleaning is abrasive enough. I found that out the hard way. LOL. I slept then woke up and cooked. Then slept again. Then got woken by Mom panicking about not being able to find something. She was screaming at me over it and I kept telling her to stop...

    My bathroom floor project

    It does feel good, although I forgot to put a level on the floor and my entire room is sagging to the west. LOL. I thought I had messed up on my leveling job when sitting on the toilet. I put the level on the toilet and on the plywood floor (under the vinyl) and realized its the same slope. So...

    What did you do today?

    I imagine that paint wouldn't hold up inside the bowl (or even outside) over the years. For some reason that reminded me of a dream I had where there were giant toilet bowls made of wood (but had a shiny epoxy coating) and they were $900 or something. There was a store full of weird toilets and...

    What did you do today?

    Ah, serendipity! I wonder if I can get a different remote to work with the lights I got for the bathrooms. The remote is black and doesn't look right if I mount it on the wall. And there's another light that came with 1 remote but I want 2 for it. Might be able to find an extra. That is so funny...

    What did you do today?

    CJ, this one was built out in the woods and I don't think there were permits pulled. I was told that the uncle of the AC guy (not the one in jail) and the guy we sold the tractor to used to live here. The original house burned down from what I was told. Current house was built with one bedroom...

    What did you do today?

    You can always look into it Rusty. Sorry the infusions make you sick at first. Also sorry you need all the back treatments and surgery, Daris. Got some laundry done yesterday. I use deep clean sanitize mode so it takes 1hr58min for the wash cycle and I dry on low heat so it takes 2hrs30min to...

    My bathroom floor project

    Previously on Procrastination Island... I needed to clean the floor, fix the toilet seat, trim pex line, & install toilet. So, today I did all of those-- with help of course. I scrubbed the crap out of that floor square by square (mopping with floor cleaner wasn't cutting it bc it has this...

    What did you do today?

    When we lived in California I used to walk to school until my parents suddenly started making me ride the bus or get rides from them. Turns out some Iranian terrorists my father had his people tailing were tailing him & started calling and making death threats to him and our family. He didn't...

    What did you do today?

    I just got a song lyric in my head "You're so f***ing special. I wish I was special". LOL. Visited my friend briefly and helped him move his small freezer back in. It had been completely filled with ice and he had to thaw it out. I didn't feel like cooking so called Mom to ask if she wanted...

    My bathroom floor project

    Thanks, Hardwood! I was going to do more cleaning today but my body would not cooperate at all. I'm still trying to motivate myself to go find my tools but my legs are refusing to move the way I want them to. I'm going to at least try to go find some of the tools though. I need my pex cutter...
