It's not pretty. Not pretty at all.
Where do I begin, huh?
Hmmmmm..........how about the kitchen?
I have a large obstacle in the finishing of the kitchen.
It's called, "bad walls".
Here, have a look:
When I took the wallpaper down? A bunch of old "patchwork" came with it. So what do I do, just skim-coat it and prime it? Or will I have this problem when I decide to change the wallpaper again?
This is not my area of expertise, people.
Here's another spot. Zuddy will need to patch this one up before I can do any tiling:
It's going to be a cold day in Hell before that happens, because Zuddy and I had a big argument last night.
The argument was basically about how he works 10 hours a day and I how I stay home and eat bon-bons. Which, quite honestly, happens sometimes (the bon-bon eating, that is). So I think I'm on my own with the patching of the walls and I'm at a total loss.
Then? I have a bunch of furniture to paint:
The multi-materialed hutch. It's made out of wood, laminate and plastic.
Good times, people. GOOD. TIMES:
I'm going to paint it an Oatmeal color. Maybe I'll age it, maybe I won't.
Then? We have the chair and desk for the Noodle's room:
I love that needlepoint seat on the chair. These will all be painted white.
Then, here's one of the drawers that go with the bookcase I got from my Mom. The bookcase and the drawers (heh.) are going to be white, too.
And my toes. See 'em? Totally neat and tidy.
At least part of me and my bon-bon-eating self is looking tidy.
All I want to do is vent about how hard being married and raising a little girl-person can be.
And about how much of yourself you "give up".
And about how I have dreams too, but I feel like I need to be here to raise my little girl-person.
And about how I can't follow my dreams from 9-3 during the school year and take the summers off from working on my dreams.
But I'm not going to do that right now. I'll wait until it's not so fresh. Heh.
