This is a post that I did back on Monday March 23, 2009
Today I decided I wasn't going to sit around and just think about deep cleaning my kitchen. What the heck, it don't look like I'm going to see the Dr anytime soon and life goes on. I'm tired and hurt wheather I work or sit, so I decided to work. If I'm going to hurt at least I'll have a reason, no just washing dishes and sweeping today. I started off, taking everything off my counters and loaded the dish washer, then I went to work. I scrubbed counters, and cabinets, back splash, all the appliances, washed windows and sorted through my nit-nats and stored some...lol..making room for new ones. Then I washed all of the stuff sitting out and polished the china cabinet. Last I scrubbed the kitchen floor good and when it dried I added a nice coat of wax...it feels so good and smells fantastic...of course I won't be able to get out of bed in the morning, but if I can look out living room and den...your next...while I was waiting for the floor to dry the first time, I decided to paint a couple of items to kinda up date my kitchen. I painted the grease can and the knife block to match my match box holder sitting on back of my stove.
From this to......
This is were they are sitting now....
DH, built all of my cabinets 8 yrs ago when we redid the whole kitchen. I did the painting on the tiles and behind the stove...
OK, I need to take some pain releif meds and head to bed have alot to do tomorrow.
Weds. I will be giving a demo on how to paint my snowman glasses and make their little hats.......Night all.

I have finally got the bathroom painted and just need one more coat on the trim and cabinets. I had the Home Deport match a paint color to a rug that I'd picked out. I had planned on doing it 2 colors, light sage above a chair rail and a darker sage below it...but didn't like that look at all so I painted it all light sage and the trim, shelves and cabinets, linen. I plan on using lament hardwood flooring in there, I can't wait to get everything back in and the medicine cabinets hung up and the flooring down......
Tuesday night Rissa and I came home from watching Connor play ball, and when we drove up we had an old friend come by to visit.....well let me rephrase that..DH had an old friend come by to visit...lol...I can tolerate this old friend as long as he doesn't touch me...Uhgggg...can you see him,
when we drove up he was up on the side of my carport laying in the cracks of the brick, I called DH to come out and get rid of it, well he talked to it like a long lost friend...conversation went like this..."well, hello old buddy, glad to see you, where you been so long...(no reply) just eased his way down the wall, time I got my camera he was already down the side and on his way to the ground......Rissa thought he was beautiful, I thought he was a SNAKE and yes, he was a King so he was allowed to go on his merry way.....as long as he don't get to close to me he will be allowed to hang around....We had one King that came to our pump house for 7 yrs straight. He got so big. When he came out in Spring he always let me know he was there by , hanging down from the rafters over my washing machine when I came in, needless to say DH washed clothes for a feww months till he went back into hiding for the winter. I really do like having a King around the house (outside, I should say) cause he keeps other snakes away.
Went to the Dr Tues and got a good report. Go back next Weds for Mamogram and a change in my Thyroid meds.

Needless to say they had a ball. He's already asked his Dad how was he going to top that this year...lol..he was joking, he just wants to have a swimming party with the twins again. They moved last fall to Madison and he misses them terribly.
You can tell I was half asleep last night when I posted this...I forgot to mention the guy in the picture with them is an Atlanta Braves' player who had come down to the MS Braves to get his batting back on track or something like that. And this was his last game with the MB before he went back to Atlanta, I don't remember his name but I know the boys won't ever forget him, he was so nice to them.
Don't for get to check out the other Fotos.

This morning my little one has been on a tear, didn't want to take her meds and has really been agitated, hiding to keep from taking meds......I am suppose to leave her with Moo-Moo and her Mom while I go to my Dr's appointment but have had to threaten to make her go with me if she doesn't straighten up. I pray once her meds kick in she will be better for Lori's sake.
I go to Dr today, Dh goes Thurs. We have 2 ballgames tonight, 1 at 7:00 and 1 at 8:00. I will keep both girls to morrow and tomorrow night and all day Thurs. and take Morgan to her ballgame Thurs evening at 5:15, besides I'm still trying to paint bath room. and the color just isn't what it is suppose to be so have to take it back to Lowe's for a remix...Aghhhhhh
If you don't hear from me by Friday...CALL OUT THE CALVERY......
