Planning any kind of party at my house is a guarantee my husband will initiate a home improvement project.
For me, this is a double-edged sword.
I was thrilled when Geoff offered to help me get the house in shape for my latest lunch party for some gal pals...
...until the masking tape and paint wheel came out. Seems the bathroom had to be painted--with crisp and measured stripes of blue and green.
Initially this was deemed to be a one-man job.
"I got this one, baby - you just relax and enjoy it."
Three days before the party, this became a two-man job.
As man #2, I was granted entrance to the construction scene.
My assigned duty was to apply the masking tape to the walls. Figuring this skill might come in handy, I gave the project my all. ☺
With the radio turned up and my dog, Andy, supervising in the hallway close by, I was lost in my own world, singing and taping my fool heart out.
Precariously poised on the bathtub, my heart literally stopped in her tracks. As I sang: "I couldn't help it...it's all your fault", sounds of splintering exploded from behind me.
My first thought ~ home invasion!
I stopped singing, realizing that my throaty vocals to Alanis Morisette's, "Head Over Feet" was the weapon of destruction. I was then able to breathe, even laugh, gingerly cleaning up the multiple shards of glass. I've always yearned to sing like Ella Fitzgerald...hmmm,
"Is it Maria or is it Memorex"...?!
Like a trooper, I finished out my tour of duty. The tape job was finally done to my satisfaction. This allowed the painting to go rather smoothly.
Man #1 chose not to keep the radio on with my track record...
I must say the finished product is eye-catching and unique. And the party was lovely in every way...
Now mar is out to replace that light - with the radio turned back up!
Meanwhile in the rest of Weeblyhood...
Until next week, wishing you peace, even when you sing...
