Well, you know the song I'm too sexy for my shirt...what? Who thinks up these things anyways! So, I haven't been posting much. It's not that my life has settled down any, crazy things still happen every day but you know me- if I don't write it down its gone. I've been busy! I've got company coming and a house that hasn't been spring cleaned-in years. I'm overbooked in all areas. A trade show coming up at work, a wedding that I, and Chinamommy (yeah, that's right, I remember co-ercing you into saying yes, probably the real reason you want to poke a fork in my eye!)are doing 33 arrangements for in the same week as the trade show. I may die-I do have high blood pressure you know! And, then there's this learning studio art gallery opening up that I have weaseled my way into. Oh yeah, let's not forget the drafting class I teach is being re-vamped into a technical drawing class and they "need" my input in revising it...yeah, catch me if you can, fellow professors....better put your roller blades on!
So what am I being sneaky about? Well, for one thing, I'm down here in my office posting but hubby thinks I am hard at work cleaning up this minor flood he caused. Ok, if you go by the version I gave him its really a major flood and as a former flooring expert I felt it my duty to apprise him of all the damage that could occur.
MOLD, I say, black mold under the carpet and wall. Carpet seams pulling apart. Water stains on the wood work near ground zero. "I'll be here all night!" "Don't worry, luckily- I'm good at these things. The carpet cleaner is pulling some of it up and I'm getting as much as I can with towels. The space heater, a couple of fans and the dehumidifier should get the rest!" I have the carpet cleaner running right now for sound effects. I ran upstairs twice for new towels. Truthfully, I am using the carpet cleaner- to get those two areas the dog pee'd on in the last thunderstorm. Been meaning to get that done before the company comes!
Yep, mischievous and devious, that's me. If only I had the opportunity to use my powers for good and not evil. Maybe some day. Excuse me now, I have to move the carpet machine to a new spot before the rotating brush wears a hole in the carpet. Don't worry- dry rot will explain that away if necessary.
