Stinky

My house reeks.

We are finally in the home stretch of having the lower level completed – only a few weeks left to go. Right now they’re working on staining the wood, and goodness me but there is a lot of wood down there to stain.

Thankfully we’re doing this in April, when I can open a few windows and let the house breathe, and not in the chill of December (when the weather is more like this).

Whenever I think of the word ‘stinky’ my mind goes to the movie Green Mile. They’re all on death row, and the crazy guy in the corner cell starts singing, “Barbeque, me and you, stinky pinky, pew, pew, pew.” Yeah, a little morose. But it happens every time.

Do you connect random things with old movies?

  • This weekend was a whirlwind! My husband headed out of town on business on Thursday, and extended his stay until Sunday evening to stay with his uncle. Meanwhile, the kids had more activities schedule during those four days than you can shake a stick at (what does that phrase even mean?!). It seemed that just… [Continue Reading]

    Deep Sigh of Relief
  • I just got back from vacation (and have seriously been researching cheap flights – without luck – to leave again because it’s so stinking cold here!). Tammy’s headed out in a few weeks to a warm destination. So we both have the tropics on our minds. We thought we’d put together a handy little vacation… [Continue Reading]

    Wild About Vacation Style
  • My 12 year old was over at a friend’s house last weekend. While most of the time I’m arresting her phone and entering it into our family phone-jail, this time was different. I am proud to say she wasn’t glued to her phone… this time, she was glued to a newspaper! What? Yes. Adaline and… [Continue Reading]
