That there is the Shasta and the mr's new obsession . When we brought it home last we said that we would not even think about touching it until maybe later this winter. Well guess what, he has already started ripping some of the siding off to reframe it and re side it and yada yada yada. Later inter my ass, but I should have known. Just as long as we get the bathroom done!
Yes, finally we have started to redo the downstairs bathroom. It's the last (besides the basement) place in the house that needs to be done. It' taken so long because we have been in a impasse about having a shower in there. The mr has to have one. Me, well I kind of think it's a waste of space.. But what can I say, I gave in and we are sticking a shower in there and I am ok with it, mainly because I get full say in what happens with the rest of remodel. There is going to be gold paint everywhere.
It was Miley Lu's tenth birthday this past week, as well as Grammy Stems ninety-seventh. We didn't get to see Gram, although we did talk to her.(If you are reading this Dad, she was not happy you made her eat her ice cream in a hot car. It melted all over he pants) We had Miley's birthday party at my house and did a cake with balloons and super shitty music dance party.(I am working on her musical taste but you can only do so much for a ten year old who is starting to like cute boys and boy band garbage)
Four day heat wave followed by sixties has tossed by body through a loop. I might have got a little something making me feel a little crummy or my body is just still a little confused as to what the fuck is going on. Either way, I am done with the drastic fluctuation in temperatures. Just be and stay fall, ok , thanks. Anyway, that was the week that and I went a little crazy and bought a shopping cart full of seltzer waters because when they are 40 cents that is what you do. Oh, and the computer. Still using barbs, but I need to give it back to her today. I guess that means I really need to figure my shit out in the next couple days. The mr is going for an iPad (much cheaper then another computer ) but me, I need a real computer. Blah, I really don't want to deal with it.
Ah Sunday. It's Alex'x birthday today so we are going over to Megan's to have a birthday lunch party and then maybe am birthday. After that definitely a nap and some reading all cozied up on the couch with a big soft blanket and hot beverages. A nice fall afternoon. And is it time to bust out some tasteful Halloween decorations? I think so.
