*D is indeed working at the Family Dollar that angie mentioned. he's in desperate need of money, as well as maturity, it would seem. rough few days/weeks/months with him- he's enlisting in the Navy next week, and will bring new meaning to the phrase "shape up or ship out!"
*in case you were wondering the story behind the master bath shower- the short version is: Dave is a very busy guy, with lots on his mind. long version: Dave forgot to move it out of the utility room before replacing the old 36" door with our new, window paned 34" inch door. since the shower is 34 1/2" it quickly became obvious that this would be a problem. but Dave, my wonderful husband, solved it. he took out the door (yes, the one that he had just put in the night before, and then took out the shower. or as we like to say, caused it to be taken out. and then he put the door in. again.)
