Guys. I used to be one of those people that were too cool for the pineapple under the sea.
Then I married Mark. And I discovered that the super sexy stud of a man I was engaged to was actually an 11 year old boy.
And I’m hooked.
We used to watch a little here and there back in the day, but took a break.
But now we’re watching it again. With Jake. And oh my gosh. It’s hilarious.
Maybe my sense of humor has changed now that I live with boys. But goodness. I love it.
Anyway. My website is working again. Thanks to my IT nerd husband, who essentially turned it off and then on again.
I’m in the process of getting some MP3’s on here for you to download. So that will be fun!
OH, and remember that coffee table I got for $10 off craigslist forever ago? I’m sure you don’t. But I did a poor job painting it, barely doing any prep work, and definitely not priming. I thought ceiling paint would work for that. Nope.
And no matter how many layers of polyacrylic I lathered on, the paint kept peeling off whenever I put things on it.
So I finally gave in, and got the stuff to strip the paint off and start over. Months ago.
And today I decided I would just “strip the paint real quick” during Jake’s nap time.
Holy cow. It’s a job.
It’s taking a LOT of work. I didn’t know my fingers could sweat, but they did, all cooped up inside the chemical-proof gloves I had on.
But I’m planning on making it a chalk-board table for Jake. So hopefully it won’t take TOO much longer.
Also, isn’t that kind of like sin and repentance?
If I had just waited and prepped/primed/painted like I was supposed to, following directions, and taking my time, I wouldn’t have had such a messy, miserable project on my hands now.
But thank goodness we are given ways we can fix our mistakes. There’s no coffee table so crappily painted that some paint stripper and sweat can’t fix it, and no problem is too messy for our Savior to clean.
Does that make sense? It does to me. Makes me want to do things the right way the first time, cause repentance is hard work! But thank goodness we have that to fall back on, because heaven knows we don’t usually do things right the first go around
Anyway. I’m gonna go put on some LuLaRoe leggings and watch spongebob. After getting Jake into his Star Wars jammies.
