Random Tuesday, The kitchen edition.
OK, you know the deal by now... I hope. Every Tuesday, us dorks, um I mean blog freaks, um I mean, literary geniuses participate in Random Tuesday Thoughts. You can link up over at The Un Mom.
I seriously thought inhaling your food was a habit most people pick up with the onset of Motherhood. You know... trying to eat your dinner while it's still warm and before the baby starts crying. I developed this habit when my oldest was a baby. She had a knack for screaming as soon as dinner hit the table. But DQ inhales her food, as though preventing World War 3 depends on it. This worries me.
Joint compound is great stuff. I am not the only one who thinks so. Besides the traditional applications, and faux decorative applications, it makes a great baby sitter while you mud your wall. Just ignore the mess around Itty Bit. I am remodeling my kitchen remember?
Speaking of mudding walls... Now I remember why I don't work construction anymore. I used to be the only girl on a rowdy construction crew. Yeah I have had a lot of interesting jobs, but that's another post. I quit the construction job when I almost fell backwards off the front of a house, while hanging a second story window. It was good money, but it occurs to me that construction work sucks. This is no fun, and I can't wait to be done!!! I am half tempted to roll the wet mud with a paint roller, so it doesn't have to be sanded. I could call it textured.
On the upside, my kitchen looks a whole lot bigger with nothing in it, and all the appliances moved. We are redoing the whole kitchen, moving cabinets and appliances. (NOTE TO SELF: find someone to run a 220 outlet to new stove wall.) After I get my pretty Mocha Mist on the walls, and everything put back it should look great.
Well that is about all the randomness I have in me today. I am consumed with this kitchen, and can't really think about anything else. I'll catch up with you guys later. Back to mudding the walls. sigh
