Me:  'Stuff you. You can get up and get your own breakfast for a change'.

HoH: 'I beg your pardon?'

Me: (Slowly sliding under the sheets because once again the brain connected to the mouth that was in fourth gear instead of neutral)

A short time later....OTB

HoH:  'Saying 'stuff you' is unacceptable. Do you understand? It is unacceptable...'

Me:  Not unless you are saying it to a chicken

And that was the end of that serious situation.

Not much to really blog on. Still slaving away at the renovating. Ttwd on some days take a back seat to painting and sanding. I think we are just tired of the whole messy, dusty house at the moment. Our daughter comes back in five weeks after being away for six months. 

I was hoping that we would be well on our way with ttwd long before she got home. I seriously doubt whether we are much further ahead than 6 months ago. At least some days it seems we are. But most of the time things are ignored. The rule list seems to have gone out West somewhere, because it sure as heck not in this house. Do I sound annoyed?

Well, I am and then again I am not. 

There is so much going on at the moment, that it is, in some ways a relief not having to stick to the rule list. Because if we were....well....I doubt whether there would be much renovating going on. It would be more than likely me OTK or OTB for the better part of some days.

I am hoping to be back on track with blogging soon. I miss this, and keeping up with you all.

And much easier to get to....

I really have to remember this one...really, really remember this one

And this one...My mouth has a mind of its own...

May your day be spank free

(PS. Even if I don't comment on your blog, I am still thinking of you all...often, while waving a paint brush around)


  1. Yeah, um.... oops! LOL Why do we always let our mouths say what we are thinking?
    I think sometimes in ttwd we all hit a plateau . We stop moving forward for a while, sometimes move a little backwards. Keep looking at the bigger picture and how far you have already come ;)


  2. Thinking of you too Hez! You are going to have one big, beautiful house when you are all done.

  3. My mouth gets me in trouble too. But so do my fingers. Sometimes they have a mind of their own and type things that get me in trouble too. I have got to learn to control them both!

    Wishing for fast renovations. :)

  4. I am also thinking of waving a paintbrush around over here! :) Have a great day. I am sure you must be looking forward to seeing your daughter.

  5. There's a little painting needed here, will you be available? lol

    Good luck

  6. Good luck with your reno.

    Blogger cut me off before I was finished.

  7. Hez, glad to see you back! :) I know it's nice to feel further ahead but sometimes life gets in the way. It goes through cycles with us, sometimes it's a lot of growth, sometimes it's nothing, sometimes it seems we go backwards (though we try to avoid that as much as possible!) And hey, you do still have five weeks left, if you're counting ;)

  8. I love you with all my butt is hysterical!!!! When I was pregnant my 3 year old said, "Mommy, is there a baby in your butt, too?"

  9. Lol you had me giggling with your comment haha

    Bless you, I can imagine how stressed you guys are, but hey look on the bright side, you're going to be so proud of your selves when all is finished.

    I miss you too, so hurry up and come back ok ;)
