It's Not Wallpaper, It's Hairpaper

Here are ten things you don't want your husband to hear you say when you are removing wallpaper and he is in the other room within earshot:

1. Uh oh!

2. ooooooops!

3. Wow, that scratch looks pretty deep.

4. Hmmm, I wonder if I can hide that behind a picture frame?

5. Wow, who knew you could put a hole in the sheetrock like that?

6. Good grief, another one?

7. I can't believe that sheetrock is so fragile. I mean, after all, it has ROCK in its name.

8. Ouch!

9. Why did I ever decide to remove this in the first place??????

10. I think I changed my mind.

I think I will be removing wallpaper for a very long time, sigh. Maybe we should just close the door and put "caution" tape across it. Distressed is "in" right now, but not sure that the walls would qualify.

Tonight I was watching a little t.v. and my husband pulled a piece of wallpaper out of my hair. Maybe I'll start a new trend. Care to join me? What will you be wearing in your hair?

The Battle Of The Dog Hair

As the "parent" of a toy poodle, I must admit that there were times that I felt superior to a cat owner. My friends with cats had cat hair all over the clothes, and I could not relate. I wondered how they could leave the house with all that cat hair on them.

Until my day of reckoning came. I failed to reckon with our beagle who is about the size of a small elephant. That dog flings his hair everywhere without a care.

He loves to scratch his back all over my blue and white checked slipcovers. As he walks by my coffee table he leaves a little of his DNA on that too. I have found beagle hair on my kitchen counters, in my kitchen cupboards, on top of my dishes, and recently I noted on facebook that I found a dog hair in the fridge.

In the fridge, people! Now, either my dog is having a party every time we leave the house or his hair can fly. Or he can fly.

Do you know that dog hair floats? It floats!!!! (Please don't ask me how I know that.)

I no longer feel superior to cat owners. Instead, I just hope that they will avert their eyes in pity whenever I walk by them. However, I know that they are turning around and staring at all that dog hair on my back.

Let's just say that you ought to invest in a company that sells lint remover, because I think that their stock is about to go up.

Four Moms & A Grandma!!!

Actually, I'm a "Granny", not a "Grandma"...

Can you believe it? This amazing littla fella is ALL MINE!
I got to meet him for the first time yesterday, and he's absolutely PERFECT in EVERY way!

His mommy and daddy are pretty proud, too!

My new love!

Rainy Days And Tuesdays Just Doesn't Cut It

I think that Tuesday and Thursday get a raw deal.

I mean, think about it. Everybody talks about Monday, even if they dread it. They always know when Monday is because for many people it's the start of the work week. Nobody forgets about Monday. Monday even sounds better in a song. "Rainy days and Tuesdays...." just doesn't sound the same, does it? It just doesn't cut it.

Wednesday is the middle of the week, so it you work Monday-Friday you pat yourself on the back Wednesday morning and tell yourself that you have only two more days to go. You know you can hang in there. It's only two more days until you're freeeeeee!

Friday. Well, it's Friday!!!!!! Everybody loves Friday. How can you not? For most people it is the start of their weekend. People count the days until Friday. In fact, for some people their Friday comes on Monday!

Then there is Tuesday and Thursday. Nobody gets excited about Tuesday or Thursday and it kind of makes you feel bad for them, doesn't it?

They are kind of the orphan days of the week. It's just very sad.

When you think about it Thursday is closer to the beginning of the weekend than Tuesday is, so really Tuesday has to put on a happy face and pretend it doesn't matter. Because nobody likes a sore Tuesday.

I just want to stand up for all the Tuesdays and Thursdays out there and say you aren't alone! You matter.

Tuesdays and Thursdays have feelings too, people......

While The Cats Away The Mice Will Play...

Not hardly.

I have had 2.5 days of me time & yet I have not found time for me.

How is that?

All 3 of my children started school on Tuesday...

I should now have a ton of time to Blog, Edit Pictures & Hang out with friends.
Yeah right!

I haven't done any of those things since Freedom school started.
Well...except right now...but I am typing this post at 10:00 PM & I just created that lovely collage too.

I am still waiting for the part where this Mouse gets to play while the Cats are away.

As my good friend Annie always sang "Tomorrow, Tomorrow"

Maybe Tomorrow!

I'm not complaining though because I wouldn't do that...
Especially since I just wrote myself a letter to stop it!

Have a Blessed Weekend!
