And I would like to point out that you get what you pay for...please take a look at how the contractor rehung my curtains on one window in our bedroom.
Um...and that's about how well that relationship ended. That and the foot through mother's antique chair he stood on while painting. Oh and also the cash I gave him to buy supplies with last week when he finished up (since none of our doors would shut like normal people's do) and to date there is no receipt or money returned. Other than that he is just peachy.
Learned the hard way, but now I am wise beyond measure...we had Lance Webber's crew at Abba Home Improvement Professionals paint the outside of our house and hang shutters. Pure heaven! Those guys were super quick, courteous and did an AWESOME job. So from now on, that's our plan. No more broken chairs or "borrowed" money. Here's my front door...
It's my new favorite thing along with my pretty hydrangeas I was able to plant because Lance and Taylor pulled out the HIDEOUS(and please say it like the dude on Nacho Libre if you have seen that as many times as I have) holly bushes.
Now I am off to finish the bleach/acidic cleaner deadly combo. I think I need to open the doors.

Because I am overly concerned about nothing…here is the picture of the tent I could not post from the previous blog… (btw setting one of these up is actually a stroke of genius on my husband's part. It works like a big play pen).
Won't someone who has a pretty blog take pity on me? Megan, Ellen, Melissa H., Heather, anyone??? I am pretty sure my blog couldn't be uglier and I just don't have a clue.
Before I post, I must tell you Madeline just approached me and informed me she has two blisters on her foot. So I say get a band aid. Her response? "Mommy the Disneyworld handbook says you shouldn't do that." Long. Pause. Who else's children are memorizing the Unofficial Disneyworld handbook this summer before the big trip to Florida. We're shooting high over here in Hurst.
