It’s Spring. Spring always makes me want to clean, something that I wish would affect my husband as well…
I think it must just be that lovely fresh air. There is just something about it that makes you want to rejuvenate your whole life. Starting with your house. Mostly your bathroom.
And so that’s where I started yesterday. Well, I initially started in Home Depot, with a gift card, the Little man, a shopping cart, a desire to teach him how to say ‘Awesome!!!” and a complete and total lack of shame.
A baby makes people do your bidding. And climb ladders. And give you stickers.
$200 later, I emerged with several stickers, a can of ‘Blueberry patch’ paint for my bathroom, a new ceiling fan that was tres expensive and new window blinds for my bathroom.
And this is where the story gets good.
It involves me, V, 3 different sized screwdrivers, the top floor of my townhouse and my eagerness to get started on my rejuvenation project.
I was pretty sure that he would entertain himself with his toys while I fussed in the bathroom. And he did for a short period of time. And then got bored and climbed into the bathtub. Happily I was working right above him, I was attempting to removing the old crappy blinds. This room contained the only crap blind remaining from the previous owners. The only crap blind they didn’t take.
I got stuck on a stripped screw (teehee~), I guess I just physically don’t have the strength to get that mother out of the wall. But I thought I did. And I certainly made quite an effort.
Such an effort, in fact, that my feet got sweaty and slipped on the porcelain tub, which made me hip-check the wall which, in turn, dislodged part of my towel rack…
Those hips of mine are so sharp that they popped a wall fixture right out of its socket.
There is now a hole in my wall.
This was a bit of a shock. I was looking to do some renovating, but not quite as soon as this. I am holding off on any home improvements until my father-in-law sets up camp on my second floor…
Watch out. I’ve got some sharp poppers.
