ah HA!

June 20, 2008

Bet you were thinking that I succumbed to the siren song of my new mattress last night, huh?

If you were (and I know you were!), you were mistaken!  So there!!

Not exactly Mission Accomplished, but the most gruesome task is done (ceiling) and the almost-as-gruesome tasks are for the most part done (cutting in and painting behind la toilet). 

For some reason the ceiling paint is looking really blue in here, whereas it is white with the faintest blue cast everywhere else.  Hopefully it will tone down with the gloss white trim and whatnot.  Otherwise I may have to change it 😦

*tears hair from head*

I must say, though, that my cutting-in skills are improving exponentially.  Now that I can get an edge without looking like I have Parkinson’s, it’s soooo much easier not to have to deal with the Bastard Blue Tape.

Last night I also took down the janky medicine cabinet.  Not only is it super stupid hanging on the side of the sink, it’s also causing my child frequent head trauma.  Whenever we share the sink she crowns herself on a corner of the damn thing, and sometimes she manages to get her hair caught on the hinges.  To top it off with a heaping scoop of Special, it’s too high for Haley to see the mirror and she has to brush her teeth and hair in the hallway.  (Oh how I love toothpaste on the hall mirror – NOT)

Between the medicine cabinet and the étagère, the sink space feels like the trash compactor on the Death Star.  I may hang the medicine cabinet behind the door or just stash it until we move. 

My current hair brained schemethought is to frame a large-ish mirror for over the sink – directly over it, how clever! – and just have a hole cut for the electrical outlet.  It’s soooo not worth the brain damage to have the box moved over 6″ to a reasonable location.



Can you see how yellow that sink is now??  How was that not SO obvious to be before?? 

Fantastic – now add “New Sink” to the shopping list.

And then shoot me.
