I am always thankful that Butch knows how to operate power tools. And not only operate them, but he can make things I can't wrap my head around. No matter how many projects I've seen him do, I know for a fact that I could never build anything that even partially resembles what it was set out to be. For example - if Larry told me to build a shelf. His would be this multi level shelf complete with trim and paint and whatnots. Mine, on the other hand, would not. I would end up with more wood shavings embedded in my arms  that on the wall. And let's not go with how big the nails I'd end up using...

The last few days he's been finishing up a project that he started months ago. In doing so, there is a layer of fine white dust (from the sander) ev-er-y-where. I've given up even bothering to clean anything until he's done. If it gets set down anywhere in our home, write it off until he's finished. Once it touches a surface it's done for!

The fantastic part of projects is the clean-up process.

This weekend will be me, dish soap + a whole lot elbow grease.

We are headed to a movie instead. Which means I will probably be up half the night.... and most of tomorrow.... just to be DONE with it! He converted my pantry shelf into a built in/walled in - entertainment center. The tv fits right into the hole - and there's a pretty shelf on top for me to put breakables in. Since I kid proofed and cat proofed so long ago I don't think I have breakables anymore...

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...

    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)
