Alexa has been known to record and play back private information. I think they were supposed to be fixing that, but I don't trust Alexa.

We have double barn doors to the laundry room; they have windows in them since the laundry doesn't have any windows. I love the look and the ease of installation. We also have a pocket door into the living room from the back hall. If you hang a heavy solid door it is less likely to jump the track than a hollow core door. Lightweight hollow core doors jumping the track are what caused most of the problems on the old pocket doors. We also have a pair of narrow pocket doors on our closet since there wasn't enough room to have a solid door open into the hallway between the master bath and bedroom.

Good planning is essential in either building your own home or remodeling. Unfortunately, our Texas house is short on outlets. They have the minimum number that were required in 1972 when the house was built. DS is very sad that I won't let him open up all the walls to put in more outlets.

We had the same rain and high wind come thru. The tarp tent fabric died. Considering it was 3yrs old I'm not upset. We are thinking about recovering with tin.

RIP Reid.
Life is horrible right now. :hit
My nephew Reid suddenly passed at 3mo old. He was fine at his Grandpa's birthday party on last Sunday. And his big sister birthday is this Saturday.

My sister had heart surgery Tuesday.
My dad just started chemo for Stage 3 non-Hodgkins Lymphoma yesterday.

I can't say that I understand the level of grief and heartbreak you're going through right now, but I do know the grief of loosing family suddenly and of watching them recover from serious illnesses. Just know that I will be praying for comfort for your family. I am so very sorry that you are carrying this heavy load right now.

My heart breaks for you and your family. I know it tears you up that you are so far from your family. To lose a baby is devastating, that is a special kind of heartbreak. There are no words.

Your sister, heart surgery, she will recover. It takes time. Your Dad, he will go through treatment and pray for the best.

Big hugs my friend.
