Den is starting to scare me. Normally, I am the one that comes up with a project list and then he nods and we might get one thing done. He is now coming up with a massive list. It even includes brick making. Who knows, maybe I will finally find something that I am good at.
This is a shot from the upstairs landing. You can see half a cat and the banister. I haven't carved up the cat yet. He just didn't have time to get all of himself in the shot. Even if I did carve up the cat, I wouldn't do it on the carpeting. I'm a clean person, ya know.
DJ, bless his destructive heart, would run down the stairs as a child and teenager, catch the end of the banister in the kitchen and use his momentum to twirl around and dismount so he could run down the stairs into the rec room. He has never been a light child and the force of many years of gymnastics has yanked it out of the wall upstairs. I'll be honest, if you come to my house, DON'T HOLD ON TO THE RAILING. It won't save you.
Den has decided that it needs to be completely replaced. I say bigger anchors for the wall. I looked at the railing in Menards and its the same as we have now. So why man, why?
I know what your thinking, I'm psychic like that, if he has money for a bouncy house, why not a fence? Sigh.
This is a lovely shot of the top of our closet. It was a miserable project. One thing led to another and all of a sudden EVERY closet in the house was open with a massive pile of junk on the floor. I left and came back in and saw the devastation with clear eyes. I went ape shit on our belongings.
I did realize that my obsession with baskets is a good thing. I eventually found a home for every basket that I had collected and the good news is I NEED MORE! I will be collecting more all summer from garage sales.
I hung all of my boots and put my bracelets in a cute basket that didn't have a home. So much neater! I don't have before pictures because this wasn't a planned thing, I sort of woke up and every closet was gutted. I do the damnedest things sober.
The little 12 year old girl that she is watching is a monster. The son is an angel. And the father is, well the biological father of the daughter for sure. In the beginning of the conversation with Anna, I was like stick it out. By the end, I was like find something now. The little girl has tantrums and screams, yells and throws things. She started needling Anna right away. She told Anna, she was so ugly that she should get plastic surgery. Anna shrugged it off. Then she started shoving her. Anna told her off but it is escalating. When they are in public, she shoves Anna into people trying to get Anna in a fist fight. Nice kid. Den said that girl would have found herself shoved into a pile of dog shit. He wouldn't make it 5 minutes as a nanny. Pray for Anna girl.
And that's all I got!
Needs a fun weekend,
