Can I kill myself now?

ughhhhhh. I am such a bonehead!

I ran out of Oil based semi-gloss and thought I had another one kicking around the house..to my luck I found it. Or so I thought.

I painted almost all the surfaces of the cupboards today in the sun, and boy or boy were they drying REALLY REALLY fast!

I kept thinking right on that sun and wind are just making this so quick...the only thing I could not for the life of me figure out was WHY the paint brush strokes were being left in my painting?

Must be and old brush? so tonight I got a brand new one out, and painted the end piece to my upper cabinet . the one with the nice lines in it from the wainscoting panel. I just kept thinking the surface of this paint just looks weird. something is wrong?

OH YAY BABY...i went to clean the brush in turpentine and GUESS WHAT? no reaction. It was a water based latex!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!GROAN.

guess what I am doing tomorrow? yup. sanding off all the paint I put on today.

But the surface that gets me the most....is the lined panel....that stuff does not do well with sanding and what about the grooves?


I'm gonna go watch MEAN GIRLS.

Okay this is not my foot, but it FEELS like my feet. This is what I get for being on my feet all day. Rotten shoes, rotten feet. I feel like I am 85 years old. Some days I can hardly walk.
I just needed a moment to gripe.

Grey Gardens

Okay folks, I found some time to chill and did it. I watched Grey Gardens, and now can be in the loop. Very interesting, and wow were they delusional! I recognized the clip, Cotton, that you put in and in seeing it in context....made it all the better. I think they stored up the garbage because the mother makes a comment at the begining about having to pay for pick up in the Hamptons. Could you imaging the disgrace in the neighborhood?

Cotton by the clip you put in I would have never guessed in a million years that Drew Barrymore played Little Edie.....wowow.

Let's Do the Happy Dance

Ok girls, everyone up and do the HAPPY DANCE!



Thanks for celebrating with me.

I start my job on August 23, part-time, MWF as a teller in a Credit Union.
  I can not wait I am so excited.

Thanks for all the well wishes, all that positive energy helped, especially with that resume error.

PS Those are not my feet, I borrowed someone elses', I liked the shoes.

PPS Now I get to go shopping for work clothes.  Maybe I will have to go to Blossom's and check out those dresses.

A little pet peeve based on ignorance here girls...I have been wondering since I landed in blogland what in the HE double hockey sticks.....the squigly thing in front of AMP friggin means???

If you guys end up doing that on your blogs don't be offended. I must be out of the loop here, because right in the middle of a title you will have " Green (squiggly thing ) amp blankets"

Does it look dumb and meaningless or am I the dumb one for not understanding it???????????

This is a BIGG BIGGG &amp BIGGGG issue to me girls.

I am going to share a funny story with you.

 I went on a job interview today.  Over all I think it went very well, in fact I am going back tomorrow to wrap up some loose ends.  What loose ends you ask?

Here is the funny part.  Let me start from the beginning.  My husband called me last week to say that he received a phone call in regards to a job opening and I should call to inquire.  I did, set up the interview for Monday.  Now both my husband and the interviewee were concerned that I might have a hard time finding the location.  I have to admit, I am directionally challenged.  So this morning I called my husband and we figured out the best way for me to get there, I planned on leaving early so I would have plenty of time to get there in case I get LOST.  Baby sitter shows up and I leave on time, everything is going great.  UNTIL.....I am half way there and realize that I FORGOT my resume.  Oh no!!!  I did not want to be late, so I did not want to turn around, but how can I show up WITHOUT the resume!  I decided I would rather be on time.  I have to also let you understand that I worked with the interviewees' sister at one time and my husband also does some work for her too.  So I was not as worried as someone would be who was meeting the person for the first time.  Can you believe it though, who forgets the resume?  ME.

Like I said, the interview went really well and tomorrow I am going back to bring my RESUME that I forgot today.  Everyone cross your fingers for me and remember we ALL make mistakes, it's just how you handle them.  I admitted my mistake and we had a laugh.  My husband will never let me forget this one.

"She's probably a blogger."

We seem to have ourselves a little game of  'gross each other out' going.
Consider this, my contribution...

Suddenly, I feel a tad bit better about myself.
(But only a tad.)

Here's the link...

Let's give it up for Joel Johnson, commenter number two.
Hear, hear!

Do me a favor folks and don't ever ask to post something I wrote on your blog. It will not go over well. Apparently, my humor is only understood by a select few. (All of you happen to hang out here if you're wondering who the few are.)

The morbidly curious should click here:
Even the crickets went silent.

Sorry for killing your blog today, TS. Maybe I should have added a *snap* to the Pinocchio line? Just a thought.

knock knock...

Please tell me I am NOT the only one that has pushed a garage door opener button- thinking it was the doorbell. Three times I have done this- you'd think I'd learn. But, since I grew up with out a doorbell OR a garage, I guess I have an excuse. Come to think of it, I don't have either of those things as an adult. So, that explains it. Anyway, it is very embarrassing to shut someone's garage door when you walk up to their door. It is quite loud and hard to hide the fact that you are that stupid! Imagine the panic when it is going down & you are picturing it hitting their car or cat or something else that might be in the way. oh brother!
