When planning for a little get together, be sure to consume water during the day, especially if you are serving prosciutto, salami, mortadella, smoked salmon, and Brie with a variety of breads.

Yeah, kinda makes ya thirsty. Kinda makes you want to chug 4 glasses of water at 12:30 am. Kinda makes your stomach painfully distended. Kinda makes it hard to sleep. Kinda makes you feel like crap the next day.

Painting fool

Posted on

I'm still painting. The trim, entire basement ceiling and 1/2 the walls are done.

I must say that I hate painting white on white, and seeing as the paint store where Billy gets the big discount doesn't offer the blue or pink tint, I was SOL.

My fingers and hands are destroyed, (not that they ever where in good condition…) so dry, cracked and bleeding, and a hunk of drywall about 1/4 of inch in length is jammed under my fingernail and into my nail bed. BUT, it's all worth it, it's looking really good… (I'm earning my keep…) just don't look up, the ceiling really could use a second coat, but I refuse!

The only satisfying part of painting in my opinion is actually applying the new colour on the wall, and liking the new colour… the rest is just annoying.

I'll be done tomorrow afternoon, and ready to enjoy a week-end at home! A nice steak dinner and drinks on Saturday and our anniversary (6 years!) on Sunday (the moms are coming over for Chinese take-out).

Why is it that the best parts of the week-end seem to revolve around food? Perhaps it's the social aspect of it… perhaps it's the reason I need to drop 20lbs…

Notes to self

1) Always empty, clean out and store a rain barrel before the temperatures consistently are below freezing. Life would be much easier, and I much dryer and cleaner if I followed that little bit of incredibly obvious advice, and yet…

2) Visiting a friend makes me feel better. Visiting a friend and getting a gorgeous bracelet makes me feel better. Visiting a friend that has a 8 week old Pug puppy can put a whole new perspective on a bad mood, and makes me feel better.

3) The pop I purchased on sale a month ago, assuming that that large amount would last well through the holidays, is almost all gone. Apparently pop is like money in that the more you have, the more you drink, (or spend…). I saw it on sale again, ($5 for a case of 24) and bought 3 more cases, if that doesn't last we have problems…

4) I need chapstick a) in my purse b) readily accessible in the car, c) in the house, preferably in the former junk drawer, and d) in the computer room. I hate looking for chapstick. I especially like my Watkins brand, natural aloe lup balm, from TOL, thanks TOL if you're out there…
