I'm not really worried, I have lots of time before the Open House. I just need to tidy up a bit... Well, what I really mean is I have to paint the trim in 2 rooms, I do have most of the nail holes filled with putty so now its just bring out the paint and I'll be done in no time! I do still need to paint the walls, but that goes fast.
Then I need to add a few select items to the rooms and get rid of what I don't want to use. That translates into, bring everything I own into the rooms I'm overhauling and then haul it out when I'm done and price and arrange what's left in the store..
This is what I really like to do... start about 2 dozen projects, 2 weeks before a get together and see if I can't get Dave to go crazy... I think he secretly takes a little sedative each morning, turns down his hearing aide and gives me that look that says."Hmmm, did you say something?" It's a great game... see which one will crack first!
He use to ask me if I couldn't vacuum with out rearranging the furniture? Seriously what kind of question is that? If you are moving it, then why wouldn't you move it?? If you know what I mean??
I only wish I had time to finish all the great ideas I think of, but that would put Dave out of a job, wouldn't it?? After all he won't have to load the trailer and drive anywhere!! He will have lots of time to help finish all the little last minute details. Who doesn't like to feel needed!
I count 2 weeks before I need to have it all pulled together and that is 14 days you know.. The problem is as I stated before, Life gets in the way of Progress..
My niece Brynne and,
We are thinking good thoughts and hoping for better times ahead for them.
I do have plenty to do but when Cousin Kay called to say she would be in Eugene on Wednesday, I put Sam on the school bus and headed south to see her. My mom and sister-in-law Judy joined us and off we went to search for treasures. We found all we could fit in the trunk of the car and finished our outing with a stop at Ruthie B's.
I know I have mentioned Ruthie B's store, it is in Springfield. I love her Halloween decorations, her store has a primitive country feel and it is a perfect backdrop for all the vintage Halloween she has collected over the years.
My Cousin Kay comes from Chowchilla, which people who haven't heard of the town sometimes think you are saying Chincilla. How perfect is this??
Do you remember these couple of jokers??
They are Judy's sweeties and they have a great sense of humor.
When they heard
what my mom
and their mom
would be using for transportation
Hope you can find a way to get there!
