The doors that I've already installed in the closets were $80 each, and bi-folds are smaller. I was hoping that I might be able to get one for $60, maybe $75 because it needs to be special ordered. Turns out, I was a wee bit off. For a knotty pine bi-fold door, they wanted... wait for it..... $360. For a clear pine (no knots - this is what my other doors are made of) bi-fold door, the price came in at a cool $420.
For a closet door!
I guess I'll keep shopping around and looking for other options. In the meantime, a shower curtain and rod is sounding pretty good.
The no caffeine, no aspartame efforts continue. The withdrawal symptoms are gone, but I'm still battling a 20 year habit. I miss pop but I am feeling better. Saturday was the first day in a really long time that there was no swelling in my feet or ankles. I celebrated this by wearing a pair of shoes that I'd bought a few months ago and hadn't ever been able to fit into. I wore them to walk the dogs... maybe about 10 blocks. They felt fine, but there were some serious blisters when I got home. Now, the swelling in my feet is (mostly) gone; but I still can't wear shoes until the blisters heal. It's like showing a kid candy, and telling them they can't have it.
I brought a cake into work today. I'd made a number of substitutions and guessed at a few quantities in the recipe, so I wasn't feeling entirely confident about it. I asked two of the guys to do a taste test before I put it out for the masses. They've both eaten my successful baking efforts many times in the past, so they know my cooking. I didn't think they'd mind - I kind of feel like they owe me - but one of them (let's call him Bob) refused. When the other said it was OK rather noncommittally, I took the chance and put the cake in the kitchen. I also left a sign that said that if the cake was awful, Bob made it. When he found the sign a few hours later, he threatened libel.
I should note here that the cake is gone, and that many other reports came in that it was good.
