Nemo can suck it!!

The first chapter of home repairs is complete! We finished painting this weekend and Im not going to post any pics until I get crap on the walls!! (not real crap...pretty crap!) Heres a few shots of our weekend escapade..



You might be saying, "I cant see anything!" Thats because while I was sanding the walls (behind wallpaper = drywall which meant we had to texture and sand before painting) the dang dust catcher bag filled up and basically exploded. This meant that everything in my house was covered in dust in a matter of minutes! We had food out, my laptop, tons of junk...it sucked. This is what you could see...nothing!

Minutes before the explosion!!


This happened around 1:30am on friday night, we were getting tired!



This would be 3:17 AM and we're still going strong. P.S. this went on for 2 nights, not just one!!


So most people would say, "good job me! Lets take a day or two to relax and refresh ourself." However I say, "ah...deal with sleep later, lets keep going!!" So I decide to start on the bathroom. Side note....I have all the Koelles coming over for an early Thanksgiving this Sunday, its conviently my month to host dinner!... My bathroom currently has this going on, its an "early Nemo/under the sea circa 1994" and Its grotesque. The bottom is curling up and along with my blue base boards and dirty walls, this bathroom needs some attention...




Now lately, when I hear the word wallpaper, my face automatically does this...








Thats my evil twitch after about 2 WEEKS of not sleeping! (arent I a beaut?)



I started on the bathroom assuming it would be easy, but that would be too much to ask for. Nemo and his friends do not wish to leave, they are coming off in shreds instead of sheets, here is some evidence.





And this is how it makes me feel...







and this....








So what do I do?...I quit! Then twenty minutes later, I go back into the trenches of the sea and really start to work. About an hour later I had an 1/8 of my mission accomplished and that was good enough to call it a night. Too frustrated by Nemo, I couldn't sleep. So I just close my eyes and says two little words...
EDWARD CULLEN...
and then I feel like this...






Tommorrow I'll be standing in line sporting my Twilight tee with my extra pair of jeans in my purse, just in case I get too excited!...will you be there?
I CANNOT WAIT!!
