On a side note, I felt guilty about not finishing our project from last year (the utility sink cabinet). Here are the completed pictures for the utility sink. I had it all done before Doug arrived.

The utility sink still needed a shelf over the top of the back splash. I glued some hardwood flooring together before his arrival and had it ready to go. We cut it down to size and attempted to install it. It is on now, but I kept hitting something in the wall and ended up stripping the head out of one of the screws. Of course it is a colored wood screw so I will have to stop at a large hardware store to find its replacement. I can stain it in place now. I will do it this week some time.

We also went and picked up another dog yesterday. We now have a border collie puppy. They had one short hair puppy but she had lost her playmate (he went to another home) the day before and would not come see us. She was the prettiest of the bunch but we wanted a very responsive and interactive puppy. So Sarah picked one out and we brought him home last night. He is adjusting as are we, incredibly smart dog. Already comes to his name, Zeke, and whines to go outside and go potty. Amazing at 9-10 weeks old. Of course we must have some bad with all that good (just one of those years). A deer made a suicide run into the front driver side quarter panel of our PT cruiser a mile from our house. I had no time to react, it smashed into the quarter panel and flew six feet into the air. I was afraid it was going to land on the roof top. It killed it dead. Of course when I attempted to get out the driver side door to check on the deer, I was unable to open the door. I had to crawl over the gear shifter and out the passenger door. I dragged the deer to the side of the road and when we got home I called the insurance company and then the county dispatch center. That poor car has been hit on the front quarter panel at least 8 times now.
I am going to start in on the access panel for our large light in the stairwell. I am going to cut a panel in the upstairs bathroom wall so the light can be accessed for cleaning and changing of the bulbs. No ladder necessary.
