sinking feeling

Dear Hubby has kept me a somewhat functional kitchen for the last few months but now it's coming down to the point that he's going to HAVE to take out the sink and the stove.  Plumbing must be dealt with and I think he's left me ample clues that the this sinking feeling I have is really coming true and my somewhat functional kitchen is no longer going to be...

I guess I better get that crock pot out of the sink before it gets the meantime, can someone please tell me how the sink hasn't already fallen?

mud and tape!

The mud and tape fairy came and got a really good start!

this is the part that goes slow to me...something about getting the mud and tape on there and not crossing the tape when the other is still wet and then there are corner thingys and then something about a bed coat (I don't personally want to wear a coat to bed) and then sanding and skiming and more sanding, and there's that whole pesky issue of having to earn a living to pay for all of this...

I'm starting to think of paint colors...wonder if it would be okay to paint some of the mud and then it'll get sanded off and then I can try another color, it'll get sanded off, we don't have a bunch of splotches of paint mixing up my mind and the one that we keep thinking about is the one.  Think dear hubby would like that?  Wonder if the paint would ig up his sand paper? (Yes, I just said "ig up" - as in make it icky...I'm sure it's in the dictionary - some dictionary, some where.)

I wish there really was a mud and tape fairy, so she/he could wiggle their wand and viola! it's all ready to paint.  But that would mean I have to have color picked out and well, let's just say I'm not the best at seeing tones.  That's what I have Dear Sweet Hubby for!

Room with a view

This is my view from my desk in my office area...I say area because I don't get the whole room.  Mind you we live in a house that is about 1500 square feet...we have cabinets and some of the appliances in this room as well...

we won't talk about my desk or about "Johnny's room"...just suffice it to say that "Johnny's room" looks like we are in need of a serious intervention and Hoarders needs to be called in....all that stuff from the kitchen and closet that got taken out had to go somewhere....makes cleaning the house a bit difficult....

bug bite or what?

Tuesday my arm started itching - or was it Wednesday? These bumps came up and there are hard knots under them - not like any mosquito bite I've ever had.  Thursday I went and got some benedryl cream and that helps with the itching.  No red streaks and I'm not feeling ill so I haven't gone to the doctor.  I've decided that the doctor couldn't tell me what it is 'cause he wouldn't believe me if I told him I thought it was either a HUGE spider putting his fangs into me (which dear hubby says would scare the mice away and we still have mice) or it's where aliens are coming in the middle of the night while I'm asleep and hooking their probes up to me.....I've got a lot to offer another civilization don't you know.  :-)
