I've been absent for a couple of days...you probably haven't noticed. The thing is, the wife and I have been involved in a project, and it has utterly consumed us.
Yeah, I set that up like we're curing cancer or feeding sick malnutritioned babies or something, I know. And, if you believe in the seven deadly sins, we continue to have Pride and Envy nailed down pretty good. Oh crap...and Gluttony...and Sloth...dammit...
No, dear, judgmental friends, this is about a floor, and the things you place on it. You see, we saved our little pennies, and bought a new floor. Dave Ramsey would be proud of us, we actually paid cash for the sucker, and didn't contribute to any national bad credit decisions. Here she is.
Took us four years, but we saved up and bought a floor. To go on top of a floor. The irony and waste of that I choose not to address, instead, let's focus on what has been an increasingly frustrating for us...a complete lack of talent and ability to decorate.
And I mean, we suck hard. To look at the picture above, that looks ok, right? I mean, it may not be your taste, but it looks ok? I cannot describe to you what it has taken to get to this point...Trial of 100 things that look horrible, and in the end, it just looks...ok.
How do you talented souls out there decorate so well? We have a neighbor on our street who puts rooms together in a random, eclectic manner, and they look fantastic. My wife and I stand in a showroom like a couple of neanderthals screaming "UUUnnngghhhh!! Me need BROWN!!
Truly frustrating process. And by the way, who the hell wants to pay $2000 for frickin rug that sits under a table that only gets used when the frickin POPE comes over? NO. THANK. YOU.
Anyway, I'm back. Happy Frickin Sunday. Sorry, I had a really bad night's sleep, and now I am on Daddy Duty for the day. I'm gonna start with coffee, and see if I can improve this mood...bleh.
One more thing...Tuesday's Tribute was an even bigger success in Week 2...you think you might wanna play this week? We'd love to read you...
