It's not about the house.

Gulp

I'm resting up my brain because...

this afternoon...

I am actually going to...

start...

or, rather, get back into...

(oh my god...

I can't believe that I'm about to say this...

but it's been six months since I've done anything around here...

except the heating changeover...

which really was a big project...

and I do think I deserve at least half the credit...

even if I didn't technically lift a finger for it...

except to write the checks...

but still...

even that's been finished for four months, now...

it's two more months since I actually laid hands on anything...

and two whole years that we've cooked in a half a kitchen...

so it's time to...

oh my god...

to get back into...)

working on the house!


Okay, there. I said it. And I didn't die. Nobody's bleeding, yet, and nothing's broken. We're already off to a better start than usual around the AssVac. I think this is going well so far, don't you?

Now, does anybody know where the damn tape measure is?

The tape measure is riiiiight there--next to the pry bar!

Bu-bu-but: I believe you have an official snow day reprieve. The weather signals that it is not the day to work on the house. It is the day to locate those peppermint Peeps and get all cocoadelic.

I say it is in the closet in the guest bedroom.

I really can make you feel a whole lot better on this one...
We bought our house in January 2000. We still live in the few rooms on the ground floor because we're renovating upstairs.
I think it is time for us to pull our finger out. You? You guys aren't doing so bad at all!

Good luck! I sense there will be some good stories coming our way.

Oh, and I have no idea where the tape measure is. I've purchased five myself, yes five, by my ripe old age of 31. I quit buying and now borrow. So now its someone else's responsibility to keep track of it and I can use it whenever I need it.

I found it! It was in the junk drawer in the bedside table. So ILU and Su were both kind of warm. But not Sparkle. I don't keep no pry bar in my bedside table.

But I DID I declare finding the tape measure enough work for a snow day...


PS Other Bear? Will you marry me? I'm already real-married to Johnny, and I'm pretend-married to Jen and her whole family, so you'll have to share me. But if you say no, I'm still going to print that comment out in 36-point and tack it to my refrigerator. Or my forehead.

I'll have to ask my husband if he would mind.
