I'm playing a quick catch-up today with the blog. I miss the shit out of it.
I miss looking at my laptop instead of the screen of my phone. My phone uses the usage, the lapper needs the nets. So I've come out of the woods today to my Gammy's house to get a short fill of wi-fi.
Also, we have no cable, satellite, netflix, or whatever. We have an antenna, but I have been holding paint brushes and moving boxes instead of running a wire. We have boxes of dvd's that, really, we mainly only watch at night and they lull us to sleep.
We do have an awesome, sweet neighbor who is so kind to mow a huge piece of our yard for us. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Miss Sharon! You're a jewel.
I've been roughing it a bit, but have finally got the main necessities here that are NEEDED. Such as, the first time I bathed at the house, and I don't bathe, I shower, but with no shower curtain and with the intent to keep the bathroom floor dry until we get the tile in, I bathed. I bathed with no soap, no body wash, no shampoo. I bathed in water. And after a day of being splattered in paint, sweat soaked, weed tromped, no bath filled with just water was ever sweeter.
The house is going to be so great. I knew it would be, but now I can SEE it. Squeal!
Other things I've squealed about are silverware. A spoon, man. It's beautiful.
A finished third coat of paint. Or fourth in some cases. Orgasmic.
Sunsets and rises. They go by too fast.
Wildlife. Oh, it's heaven.
This job is taking a long, long, long time, and maybe some would say I could have just paid to have it done. But then I wouldn't have seen every little detail of every wall, in every cabinet, behind every door. I've gotten to know the house this way, and this is the way I like it. I can do it myself, so why wouldn't I?
And my sweet momma helped me.
Also, I'm broke. There's always that.
It's been hard and very time consuming and so gratifying.
Some things that have been said or thought:
Let's count the stars.
You get what you pay for. A cheap, flimsy paint brush is about as useful as a soft penis.
I have zero energy. I'm gonna need some cocaine or something to move another piece of furniture.
This house is haunted.
Oh, HELL. NAH. Do we have a mouse?
I saw a deer with the biggest rack I've ever seen in my life.
I miss the nets.
We need wi-fi.
Any and all swear words you can think of. And some I may have made up.
Laughter. Laughter. And more laughter.
That hill is going to be so righteous for sledding in the winter.
And so much more.
Happy Saturday, Shackers!
