Just thought I'd put that out there and get it out of the way. Happy Fall to All. Time to get the furnace cleaned because if this morning was any indication, it won't be long til we are turning the heat on in the mornings to take the chill off.
Gary did place 2nd in the tournament this weekend. Yeehaw - a few extra much needed dollars towards the Lake Erie trip. This coming weekend is the final round to make the State Team. Wish him well. As he says... a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work.
I'm so proud of myself this week, Three years ago I started a Christmas table runner with quilt foundation piecing. Yes, you read that right...3 years ago. When I start a project, we are talking a MAJOR fucking undertaking here. Lots of $$ goes into materials, I get all excited about doing it and then something happens. Nothing. I don't do it. Or I start it and don't finish it. How many of you have these types of 'projects' around the house? Well, I finished the quilt squares! All 10 of them. Now I need to get to a fabric store before I lose steam to buy the sashing and backing material. As Scarlet O'Hara would say.... "As God is my witness, my table will have this runner on it by Christmas!"
Another project that I plan to do that is near to my heart is in my upstairs bathroom. It's a gruesome, scary project but I'm going to lay it on the line here. My husband's piss is vile. It's corrosive and has super-human abilities. It has eaten through and dissolved the paint on the basebaord heat next to the toilet down to the bare metal. Could someone tell me who was the Einstein that thought it would be a great idea to put a metal object next to the toilet in the house with the Man of Most Caustic Pee? Let me guess.....um... maybe a MAN who thought his wife would love to scrub his piss off it, while on her hands and knees with her head stuck almost behind the toilet? When we built this house, I guess if we had the extra money, we should have added a few more square feet to the miniscule upstairs bathroom to allow for some more room to avoid this problem. However since it took every penny we had to make sure we had walls, a roof, a septic system, a well, 1st floor bathroom, a laundry room and a little electricity... we were lucky to get a 2nd bathroom at all. Anyway, I was going to post a picture of the gruesome scene of the attack of the Killer Piss but thought better of it. I didn't want to gross out the few readers I have, plus I'm embarrassed to admit something so utterly wretched is living in my home (but not for long!). I bought a steel brush, some primer and new Rustoleum paint to attack that piss pile with a vengeance. When I'm done, I am going to just DARE him to splash a little pee on it. Actually, I think that little cleaning chore ought to be his... don't you agree?
