Deep Thoughts: Grill Igniter

This morning I was going through my emails and I clicked on the newest one from Pretty Handy Girl.  Do you read her blog?  I love it, she is amazing.  Right now she is saving a house that she calls Etta.  You should follow along, it’s pretty cool.

Anyway, her blog post was about replacing your grill’s igniter button.  And my brain just stutter-stopped.  You know those moments when your brain flashes 38 different instances in front of your eyes in 0.4 seconds?  That’s what happened.

The flashes were of me or Denton (mostly Denton because I sort of like my eyebrows, some days) over the last four or five years lighting our gas grill with a twisted up piece of paper towel that’s on fire – me – or lit matches – Denton – to light our grill.

I had somehow blocked out the reasoning behind this curious thing we’ve been doing for years.  And it’s because our igniter button no longer works.  Huh.  How do you forget the reason behind something you do at least twice a week, for years?  Or maybe it isn’t that we forgot, but it’s just something that we’ve grown so used to doing and it’s not irritating enough to us yet that we would do something about it.

Possibly, I could have had the thought cross my thrifty brain that the cost of a new igniter would be upwards of what I paid for the thing five years ago at a yard sale – ergo – it would be cost prohibitive to replace.  It’s a very nice gas grill, but I’m not willing to sink money into a button that would save me 16 seconds twice a week, if it’s going to cost more than I paid for the grill itself.

Do you face these dilemma’s on a daily basis too?  I’m going to go set out my vitamins next to my stove, because it’s the first thing I see in the mornings, so I’ll be sure to take them.  And possibly take a nap.  Good luck with your igniter button.

The Side Eye.

When I came in yesterday afternoon, I found this top portion on our white board.

I added the bottom part and then I laid in wait for Hayden to get home to see his reaction.

He came in and glanced at the board and stood there for approximately .2 seconds before reaching up and erasing the whole thing.  He gives me the side eye as he’s doing that, and says to me, “That wasn’t for you”.

Liva didn’t have school yesterday and she was asleep when he left for school.

He’s a good brother.  And a smart aleck like his Mama.  😉  I love it, and him beyond measure.

Miley Cyrus bought my house.

I have an obsession that drives Denton absolutely bonkers.  And it’s name is Realtor.com.  (That’s not an affiliate link.  If anyone knows how to become an affiliate for realtor.com, please let me know, that would make my day.)

I love it.  I spend an unprecedented amount of time perusing the listing’s and dreaming of which house will be mine.  If it were up to me, and Denton had absolutely no say in it, we would buy a new to us house every two years.  Buy low and sell high.  That would be my motto.

At least once a day, I am on their website looking at the houses that are for sale in my little town and the towns that are adjacent to it.  You have to keep up with what’s selling in your area.  And then there are the dream homes.

Ahh, the dream homes.  You know, the ones that you would buy if you won the lottery.  I keep a saved list of these on my account.  That’s why I noticed that one of my going to be mine someday houses had been sold.  NOOOOOOO!  To Miley Cyrus.

It’s a stunningly beautiful home, with a pool and 33 acres of land.  Here’s what drew me to this particular house.  On to the eye candy!

 Miley Cyrus Buys Home In Franklin, Tennessee

First of all, it’s a farmhouse, with a wrap around porch.   And it’s private.  No one can see me wandering around all day in my yoga pants like my neighbors do now.  Or drive down my long windy driveway without my permission.  Privacy will be good when I win the lottery.

 Inside Miley Cyrus' Rustic, Country Home

The floors, the beams, the rock fireplace.  What’s not to love?

 Miley Cyrus Just Bought A New Southern Home

The kitchen is perfect in my opinion.  I have room to cook; my people have lots of room to stay out of my way while I’m doing it and still be right there for long lovely conversations about everything under the sun.

I love this little sitting area off of the kitchen.  I could sit here and read in front of the fire, while I make sure not to burn down the house with some chili or soup on the stove.

With five bedrooms, we would have enough room for family to visit and everyone would have their own space to retreat to when someone wants to bash in someone else’s head.

 Farmhouse-inspired bathroom decor

This space is my favorite though.  It’s screened in.  You will understand if you are like me and Hayden.  The mosquito’s eat us alive.  A place to sit outdoors, with a fire, that the bugs cannot enter.  Paradise.

Although, I have no idea why they have those giant doors open.  They are letting out all of the A/C.

 Miley Cyrus' Tennessee Estate

I want a sofa swing in my living room now.  I hope that Miley made them leave it.

The pool.  It’s large enough to do laps in and with all of the privacy, I could finally learn to cannonball and no one would be watching.  Not even Denton.

How adorable, a caretakers cottage!

I love this house and property.  It’s one of my all-time top five dream homes.  Maybe top three.  When I win the lottery, maybe Miley will sell it to me.  😉

Do you have this obsession with Realtor.com too?
