My sweet Boy! He was so excited I was having a birthday!
"Myrtle" under the Myrtle..
Yesterday, I had a very interesting day with Miss Savannah Grace, but I had to drive to Dyersburg last night and didn't get home until about 11. My Great Uncle Bobby passed away, so my Mom and Grandmother and I went up last night. His funeral was today at 1, but there was no way for me to make that.
ANYWAY, I have decided that the aliens brought Dalton back to me, but when they were here they took SavyG. That child is NOT right and it is becoming a growing concern that she may never be. I discovered Sunday morning that Dalton really doesn't have a perpetual odor. He just doesn't bathe properly. I don't know much about 11 year old little boys, but I'm not sure mine is the "typical" type. Sunday morning, I told him to shower and if he stunk when he got out, he would just have to get back in. The kid asked me to just come help him. HA. I put my Crocs on with my PJ's and got in the side of the shower he wasn't using. (It's one of those walk through jobs with two shower heads.) He walked over to me for me to scrub his head and it wasn't even all the way wet!! DING DING DING..This could be PART of the problem. SO, we had Showering 101 and would you know, the kid smelled GOOD when he got out. He even smelled moderately clean after his next shower. (I haven't told him to bathe again, so I seriously doubt he has.) I kiddingly told him I was going to sniff his balls after his last shower and he actually asked me if I needed to!! THAT kid ain't right.
He might be better than Savannah. She started shaving her PITS Sunday!! I cried! I realize it's a rite of passage, but I wasn't ready. I still won't let her shave her legs (many of her friends are) but, she NEEDED to shave those pits! Yikes!!
My hair texture has changed since I started these medications. My hair seems to grow all different directions. It began to fall out when I started MTX and got a little thin. That has grown back now and it grew back thicker and more course.
I watch So You Think You Can Dance every week and really like the funky style of Mia Michaels. So, I suggested that to my hair dresser and this is what he gave me.
The only thing I put in it is Bumble and Bumble Sumo Wax.
It doesn't take much. You just mash it around in your hands and rub it through your hair and stick your hair anywhere you want it. It's quick, easy, fun and FUNKY. I like it for now. Thanks for asking.
We painted some more tonight and got new door knobs for the whole house. We also finished MOST of the electrical outlets. It's getting there, but there is still a lot to do. I think the appraiser is meeting Jeff there tomorrow. I'm sure we'll be busy this weekend. I just hope I feel better than the one before
I hope to have more updates for you next time. OH, the grass got cut. That helped A LOT!
Definitely still a work in progress but we are happy with what we have gotten done so far. The power should be back on tomorrow and I have to say I am sorry for "cursing" the seller about the utilities. He is going through some difficult times, and I don't know the whole story and should have possibly been more understanding. (He could have also possibly been more communicative (if that's a word) and we could have avoided the whole cut-off thing all together.) ANYWAY, some things you can't see,,,,,,all of the electrical outlets have been replaced, all of that white in the main areas is wainscoting and I love it! Crown molding is going up in the kids rooms (who both decided on the same blue) and a chair rail is going up in our bedroom (above) and it will be white below. The bathtub and tile in that bathroom have to come out, but not until AFTER the appraisal. Same thing with the kitchen, we are scared at this date, if we rip them out, we might not be able to get them ALL the way back in before closing on the 30th. SO, deal for now. I'm not crazy and I realize they are a hot mess, but we will get to them. We also hired a fellow to come cut the grass and weed eat. Of course, it has rained everyday since we called the young man, but ain't that just the way it goes?
We got alot more done than these pictures even show. All of these doors got painted and the closets!! We are heading back over there in the morning. Rohn is off work tomorrow and agreed to help us on his day off. SO the rest of us took off work, too. We hope to get most of the lime green painted tomorrow!! Wish us luck!! We have also decided to try to get through an FHA inspection with the kitchen that is there. We are afraid that if we cut that back wall out, we will put our closing date in jeopardy to get the whole kitchen back in. So, while it will be A MESS, the goal now, is to get through closing and moved into the rest of the house and THEN rip the kitchen out. We'll just have to eat out for a couple of weeks. I think I can manage. HA.
I took these pictures of Savannah in the truck on the way to the house. NO, not while I was driving. We were stopped. She talks ALOT, but she sure is cute.
OH NO YOU DIN'T!!
I mentioned some side effects the other day. HUMM, now they are a little worse. I was looking forward to feeling better "soon" but I guess sometimes you have to feel worse to feel better. I got slammed back into the bed today. We started painting at the new house today. Well, I gave it my best shot anyway. Yesterday, I took my MTX after having my Enbrel on Tuesday. WHEW, that didn't go so well. Last night or sometime in the wee hours of the morning, I got really sick at my stomach and starting running a fever. This morning I got up and we went to get paint and headed out to the new house. When we got there, we were a little shocked to find out the seller had the utilities turned off. That is NO GOOD. Note: If you are ever selling a house, DO NOT have the utilities cut off prior to closing. The appraisal is to be done on Monday and it can't happen without power. Not to mention, if your buyers are taking care of extensive repairs at their own expense, it makes for some pretty crappy work conditions with NO AIR. We got both of the kids rooms painted and then I started throwing up. TIME TO GO HOME. I slept all afternoon and seem to be feeling a little better tonight. We'll be back at it tomorrow.
I'm either turning into a porcupine or I just pulled a splinter out of the top of my head. I honestly don't know what that was, but it was a little freaky.
Pray for cool weather in the morning. We need it.
So, I need to be up packing or over at the other house painting and instead I'm piled up in my bed with my computer watching reruns. I am not feeling so hot tonight. SOON, I will feel better. I know it.
Hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend! Try to stay KEWL.
