Our kitchen is now DONE. And it looks AMAZING. I apologize - I do not have a photo yet to post. I promise I will have that up this week. Every time I walk into the kitchen I have to pause and just take it all in. It looks so different and so terrific I just have to smile. The DH and I did a great job. I don't know what I would do without him. He knows so much about valves, faucets - you name it. He knows it. Each time I am standing at my sink I feel like I should have my own cooking show - it's that amazing. LOL Of course, I am far from creating anything as wonderful as Rachel Ray, but dang it - I can hold my own!
I know I must sound like a broken record, but did the weekend fly by or what?? Saturday we worked on painting the kitchen, so understandly the day went quickly. But Sunday is a blur. Of course it could be because I spent half of it not feeling well. Not sure what happened, but I think it was a run-in with the HEAT. I was at the ranch with the girls Saturday afternoon. I had to clean their pens, feed, empty a water and while I was there I saw how the feeders needed cleaning as well. So that involves getting out the Clorox and a scrub brush and commencing to get the crud off the bottom of their feeders. I felt fine while doing it and I was drinking water the whole time. When I got into the truck to head home, my face was bright red. I couldn't seem to cool down. It was a tad scary. When I got home I felt drained and sick. Then Sunday I was out in the heat again - only this time shopping at the Lake Elsinor Outlet stores and I barely made it home before I was again feeling sick. I spent a good portion of yesterday on my bed, relaxing and watching TV. It was just too hot too soon for me.
Not sure how many of you will recall the DH and I's good buddy, M. Long story short, he went thru HELL with his ex who is a shopaholic and ended up in debt above his head. We thought for certain he was on the right path to a divorce, but we learned this weekend he has decided not to divorce. This is tough for a lot of reasons, but mostly because we are not certain how he expects us to accept her after everything that has gone on, not to mention the things we have said about her and in turn listened to the things he has said about her. In a way its sad because its like we all know we are losing him as a friend - just no one wants to say it outloud. We just hope he is making the right decision and that in two years he won't be in the same boat or just as miserable. The DH is having dinner with him on Thursday night.
Birdman expressed himself in ref to my song choice, so today I have one you will probably be surprised about...
SONG OF THE BLOG comes from a Clear Channel HD radio station out of Charleston, SC 100.5: "Outside" by Aaron Lewis & Fred Durst. I've heard it a couple of times now and I really like it..
Photo of the Blog: Being a big fan of Miranda Lambert's and seeing her win Album of the Year last night on the ACM's was really cool. She is an animal lover and I found this photo on her web site. Go Miranda!
