i have title block so eh, words on thursday is the best i could do.
sooo, what's going on around here? let's see.
monday the hubs had some major oral surgery. the hubs is a total bad ass. seriously, sometimes his badassery frustrates the hell out of me, although his rebellious nature and badassness are parts of the reason i married him. but i digress. dude thought that he'd go in for this surgery monday morning and then go to work in the afternoon despite the fact that i told him he'd be out of it most of the day. i could speak from experience seeing as how i had my wisdom teeth removed last summer and was out for 3 days.
and i was right : ) he has fuzzy memories of that day (he was fully sedated for the procedure) and i kept him loaded up w/ his prescribed vickies every 4 hours because when he was awake he was an ass. the hubs does not follow rules, like oh, you can't smoke the day you get gaping holes in your mouth?? yeah. so he was cranky. and belligerent. and remembers very little of it. plus, it has been since sunday since he's eaten any meat for god's sake, and the man loves him some meat.
yesterday i started painting the hallway---most of the primer coat is finished. it was orange folks--the hubs' choice several years ago---i should have taken a picture! now it will be a nice tannish hue.
next week the kids and i are going on a road trip to wv to hang out w/ one of my aunt's for the week. she's a teacher so aside from the unemployed she's one of the few people who have summers off : ) it will be great to get out of the house, because, as much as i feel like i'm getting things done that i've wanted/needed to do? i'm fucking bored out of my damn mind. and, being w/ the kids 24/7 since the beginning of june is starting to do me in. everywhere i turn they are there.
i now know that i would have made a horrible, horrible sahm when they were younger. i have the utmost respect and admiration for women who can do this. i've always thought it was hard and respected them, and i realize that being home w/ a 9 and 12 year old is nothing like having babies or toddlers or more than 2 but holy hell. i am a person who likes to be alone sometimes. even if that alone time is just driving to work. or being at work for that matter. there is some separation. the boy says i have turned into more of a hard ass since i got laid off. that i'm stricter. hmmm.
totally off whatever topic i thought i was on but i'd like your opinion on something.
wood kitchen cabinets----paint them or not? the very least that will be done to the kitchen for now is a paint job (it is the only room in the house that hasn't changed since we bought it 7 yrs ago and green stripes and a fruit border are just not me) and new hardware. eventually there will be upgraded counter tops and a tile (not laminate like it is now) floor, but that is for the day we are rolling in the dough. i'm really afraid of painting the cabinets. and don't suggest switching out the doors for glass doors cos i certainly don't want people looking into the cluttered confines of my cabinets.
