She'll be comin' round the mountain

There are still so many ways to get this dern double wide done. Four million walls to paint. Broken sofa legs. Still plenty of dead bug carcasses stuck to various walls from what we can only assume was some sort of hurricane or flood before it became a repo. Bathroom floor partially peel-n-stick tiled (some are slowly floating away from the others because they don't have a neighbor ... like they're trying to escape). My bedroom has become the catch-all of the things which should be more in the "office" area, but that area is so teeny, they are at the foot of my bed (the foot-o-the-beddy-office-area). Areas of this place are quite whickity-whack (how does one spell, "whickity-whack" anywho?).





Um, yeah. I'm totally decoupaging my entire fireplace with my old Seventeen magazines, and whatever else we can chop up and glue on. If that surprises you in the least little bit then, seriously - how long have you been reading me? Christine is cutting up magazines and gluing them ... to her WALL. And the sky is blue and dogs bark.

I may just have to quote the last line of your post on a welcome sign in the very near future. "Welcome to my home. If you sit really still I promise you won't die."

And also, thanks for introducing me to two fabulous new blogs! They're already on my feedreader (had to go and read up before I commented here!) ;)

I am going to blog a photo of my staircase banister because it's crafty and you're crafty like that.

You have the coolest job in the world. Seriously. I'm taking notes. Passing them onto my husband for when we can be cool people someday. :-)

Spring Break is next week, so let me know if all of you decide to have a huge unschooling pow-pow picnic thingamajig. Of course, unschoolers wouldn't have to wait for Spring Break to do that, would they?

See. I wanna be cool. Someday? ;-)

Love your fireplace! I've been calculating in my head all day how long it would take to drive to TX (from WA) and how many of my kids I would kill before we made it there.... Of course, we don't have a really cool motorhome. :)
