Sent the girls to daycare and decided that today was Backsplash Sealing Day. So I started to apply the sealer to the entire wall, using a 1/2-inch paintbrush. No lie. The novelty wore off after the first hour.
Sat down at the computer and found out my poor friend had been told her 9-month-old baby might have Leukemia, and they were at the hospital for tests. Words could not describe my heartache, and I wished the girls were at home with me so I could hug them extra tight.
After sealant coat #2, decided it should be Window Painting Day too. What the hell, right? It sucked. It sucked big time.The window is above the sink. It's also above where the one seam in our granite countertop is (which Steve was sure I would break if I sat or stood on it. Thanks dude.) So I contorted my body in ways I didn't know was possible, painted upside down, and finally just sat on the damn granite window sill and figured if it broke, it broke.
Had WAY too many brush marks on the one side of it and decided to try to "fix it".
Made it worse.
Tried to fix the new mess.
Managed to get it looking fairly decent. Whew. Being married to an anal retentive freak causes much stress in one's life, lemme tell ya.
Watched the garbage men dump our five cans into the garbage truck and then saw one of them write something on a clipboard. Fuck. They weren't kidding in that letter a few weeks ago that said the new can limit is 3 and everything over that will be charged. Damn bastard garbage police. (I actually have no idea what he was writing, but I'm betting we'll be getting a bill in the mail soon.)
Found out my friends little boy does NOT have cancer. Thank. God. (Or whatever other higher being(s) are out there.)
Decided I hate slow moving people even more than dumb people. I mean, dumb people probably don't know they're dumb, because, well... they're too dumb to know. But don't slow people know they're driving/walking/working slow? Unless they're dumb and slow. Then they're too dumb to know they're slow. God bless slow dumb people, but I would really like to kick your asses.
