Sister, I have never met you but you are loved and you are held in my heart. I haven’t stopped thinking about your story since I heard of it yesterday. I know with every fiber of my being that it will haunt me for the rest of my life. I am so sorry. So so sorry. Tears are welling up as I type this. You and your angel and your children will be lifted in my prayers forever. Forever. May you find peace in time.
I hear the lyrics, the beat, and I recognize the passions, intensity, frenzy. Can’t feel them. Can see, remember, nostalgia. A passing train. Nothing stirs. Molasses. Tar pit. Black & white movie.
So. Today we rented a drum sander to sand our dining room floor. After that we plan to test some stain samples, and maybe some paints as well if the wood stains don’t cover the water/pet damage.
Next I will continue my campaign to do the same to our living room…assuming we can achieve a positive outcome
Originally I wanted to do it all at once but James just wouldn’t agree. I just didn’t want to spend all that money to rent the sander twice. Turns out, a local company was charging FAR less than Home Depot so I feel a lot better about breaking it into two parts. So instead of paying $50 for 4 hours of rental time we found one much closer to home that was $50 for the whole weekend. Yay! Stay tuned for the results.
Well, friends, it’s a start! I don’t seem to have enough fingers, but Dags has grown fond of braids, so I’ll make it work. I am pretty fond of braids too, so maybe I’ll start sporting them myself. They may never look like I intend but it will be good practice.
If you have any braiding tips or tricks, please share in the comments below!
Finally got the self-stick whiteboard paper installed. Still plan to trim it down, about even with the light switch and frame it with some moulding from Busy Beaver.
Above the whiteboard I plan to install some Ikea Grundtal shelves or shelf where I’ll store my pots & pans. And to the right of the whiteboard maybe I’ll put some hanging baskets or something.
