Laugh With Me

What's missing from this picture?
Primer on fridge
That would be me- standing in only a t-shirt and underwear painting the fridge... when our building manager walked in. AKKK!

Fortunately it was a big shirt. Fortunately he was distracted by the fact that I was painting the fridge and Cliff jumped in front of me pretty quick. It was so awkward! If I could have crawled into the fridge I sure would have!

I decided to paint the fridge. (The wallpaper was good, but it really started to get frayed around the edges at the one year mark.) I figured I would paint in just the old t-shirt before I showered. Less clothes to ruin with paint spatters.

The building manager called to say that a package had arrived. Cliff went down to get it, but Ernie had the box on a dolly and backed right into the apartment before Cliff could do anything.

Embarrassing as it was, he was there to deliver a box of Omaha Steaks from my in-laws! That did help to ease the pain a bit.

Finished fridge reveal on Friday. Say that ten times fast.

Honey I can so identify! I live in the country and have less reason to expect visitors than most. So the other morning, I had a lot of hot and sweaty housework to do, and I wanted to color my hair. Why shower? I just stayed in the my very thin nightgown and did my work. I bopped out onto the back deck to hang up the wet mop and there stood two men, one of whom looked away very politely, and the other who leered madly. I was frightened, embarassed and upset. They were here to clean my propane gas tank.

I haven't moved so fast in years! I got back in the house and snapped the locks shut on the door and didn't go back outside.

However, silver lining...My husband finally bought into the idea I needed a watchdog. So he brought home a six week old puppy,lol.
