GRASSCLOTH BUMMER

Ok...I have to tell you I have all the luck.

 NOT! 

Windows ordered 4 times, electrician got a better job wiring an entire high school in another town and too busy to hook up my pool pump...and my AC...and my lights...

Well, you get the idea....always some reason to sit on the pitty pot at 822 (whatever, I'm the luckiest girl in the world!)

Hubs is going on a golf trip to Pandera, New Mexico for his fantasy football draft and I am left here all alone to wallpaper the bathroom potty stall.

 Speaking of pity pots! 

I never measure with a yardstick...I guess that's just too left brain for me...so I order one double roll and you guessed it...it got lost in the mail (I have no house numbers yet..some folks have to guess on delivery)but just in the nick of time, it arrives today...and...your 2nd guess would be...I'm short about one dang strip! 

BOOGER!

Today I can say I am nearly done wallpapering the potty stall...and I did it in the half dark.
And I can now tell you since my fear of the beautiful diamond windows falling out of the turret during installation DID NOT...I repeat DID NOT happen...

I can count that on the side of 
 Just Right

Grasscloth in the potty stall? Even if shorted, it's better than the potty and the tub...they have been in my garage for a very very long time...because... the plumber has a real job in the oilfield...in another town.

This bribe note did not work
and I will spend another weekend under the cover of
M.A.S.H.
A.L.M.O.S.T.
P.O.O.L.
He says this makes it almost 10 degrees cooler under here
yes, I get it...please take it down so I can drink beer without my teeth chattering because the pump and heater are NOT hooked up..KYLE wtf?

sure hope my man comes home with 
Drew Brees

because then
it will have been a very productive weekend!

You're breaking me up! ALL my projects go smoothly. It's just my jealousy doing the laughing because I've wanted leaded glass windows since I was a little girl. Can I join your pity party? wah ~ Maureen

never boring at your house!!!
your home is just so interestingly beautiful, what are Drew Brees ( Canadian here) who never travels and is most likely a bit stupid but in my aging years (56) I now ask when not sure of something,

It's amazing! I have turret envy!
Poor thing...do projects EVER go smoothly? Not in my world! haha
How is it possible that your pool is cold? Mine feels like a warm bath. Maybe I should put up a net. ;)

You are very lucky, when you are a little old lady in your porch you will remember all these troubles and you will laugh.
(please if I have many mistakes tell it to me)

Funny story--I know it's not if you are going through it. It's just that we all can related to projects going wrong, contractors not showing up, etc. Your house is looking gorgeous.
