(THANKFUL) it’s already Tuesday and that tomorrow is a holiday. I think we should have a mid-week break every week! I was against this originally (I love me a good 3 day weekend), but now I’m really looking forward to having a day off to sleep in and re-charge. Getting up early for work seems to just suck the life right out of me by the end of the week.
(TIRED) from painting- yep, more painting. I’m planning on not picking up a paint brush again for at least another 2 years. Someone please slap me if I mention painting within the next year.
(LOVING) our new carpet!! It was installed yesterday and it feels SO good to have all the old yucky carpet out of the house. I promise to take photos soon- after they installed the carpet yesterday I spent the remainder of the afternoon taping below the baseboards and painting- our new carpet is a lower profile than the old carpet and the baseboards needed re-touching. Once the tape gets pulled I’ll take some photos- and don’t worry, I wore a mask the entire time I was in the rooms with the new carpet. The paint I’ve been using is no VOC but the carpet has a definite odor to it (which should go away in a few days with the windows open/doors closed).
(GRATEFUL) for AC- it was 109 here on Saturday- TOO HOT. I barely went outside. Luckily it’s sort of cooling off now- I think we’re only supposed to hit the mid 90’s today. We got rain late Sunday night, complete with a spectacular thunderstorm (which Jackson of course hated and T had to get up with him for an hour) that helped cool things off a little.
(DISAPPOINTED) that doggy photos did not happen AGAIN. This time it was a camera malfunction. At this rate, I *think* that these photos will end up being a Christmas present rather than a birthday present for T. Sigh. To make up for it- here are a few old doggy photos from my friend…
|Ellie sitting on my lap- she’s a total lap dog even though she weighs 45lbs|
|Ellie (aka Black Bear) at an agility trial- my friend took this while hiding behind someone because Ellie has jumped out of the ring before when she’s spied my friend (who she loves)|
|Kirby, sitting nicely for the camera|
|Kirby and his friend Dexter (a 7 month old Schnauzer puppy who LOVES him). This is usually what Kirby does- non stop running|
