Wednesday Tid Bits

I was to meet a blogger this coming Friday, the same one as last time that got canceled. But now this Friday is going to be another 'storm" here so she canceled. 
I hope it's just like the last 'storm' and we got nothing. 🤞

I don't much care about said storm. 
I don't have to go to work or drive in this if I don't want to. 
I  know they don't treat the roads well here so it's best to stay home. 
But damn, I think meeting her will never actually happen.

I am knee-deep into my office organization since I finally painted it. 
I am going to leave you with memes cuz I am still cleaning out all of these from my phone/computer.  I have decided that I am getting so damn good at painting that I could get a job doing this if I wanted. IF I wanted. I don't want to. But I sure wish I could paint without any objects in the room. That would really make me happy. In fact, it'd be orgasmic. 

Rick came into the room and didn't see me. I was sitting on the floor behind the bookcase painting the trim. He said, "Margaret are you in here?"  I laughed and told him where. He said I could never fit back there why didn't you call me to move the bookcase. Because I could fit and it was no big deal, besides you were in the workshop. I knew I'd fit. He then explained that this is why he can't paint. I laughed and said, "nice try but you can paint well, you just don't want to paint and help your old wife"  
He laughed as he walked out of the room and said, "Okay that too." 

He left quickly so I didn't get him to do the edging at the ceiling. I was using a step stool. I needed one more step. I was on the top step and on my tippy toes to do the ceiling area. I was too lazy to go out and ask for the ladder. 
I got it done. Hell if I didn't have these God-awful popcorn ceilings I'd have painted that too. Next year - those are going!!!!! POPCORN CEILINGS ARE THE WORST! I will pay someone to do this. I saw how it is scrapped and automatically goes into this vacuum attachment so it doesn't make a mess. I don't have that so I will pay someone to do it for me. The entire friggin' house. I hate them, did I tell you that? 😁
When anyone who is reading this sees the last episode of the last season of After Life, please share. I would love to discuss this. We felt it ended one way, I've had others say another way. Aah, it's driving me nuts. I hate that kind of ending. Especially when the show meant so much to me.

Happy Hump Day!

Lol on the Fox News. Love the mirror one. You can come paint at my house any time! When Trevor moves out then I will paint the "kids rooms". I need to take down the wall paper I put up in my bedroom to paint that. So much work. Maybe I'll just put another layer of paper over it ;)

This is why I never use wallpaper. When we got our lake house it was so overwhelming the amount of wallpaper. I put breadboard on the bottom half of kitchen walls. then i primed the paper above the breadboard then painted it. It lasted for the 11yrs we had the place. No lifting or anything. But I know "they" say it doesn't work. So it's taking a couple a risk.

Just so you don't get high painting in a closed house--or maybe I should try it.
Loved the mirror--so true.
Stay safe and warm.

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

Patti, gee that'd be a nice side effect. 😁 better than my sore shoulders. Office done!

Mike said...

I'm right with you. I don't mind painting but I hate moving all the stuff out of the way. And then, they expect you to put the stuff back!

I watched After Life but don't feel I should share my opinion of the ending's meaning here to avoid a spoiler.

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

olga, you can send me an email. :-)

Mike, exactly!

Amen on the history and library memes. We have a legislator who held up To Kill a Mockingbird as proof that critical race theory was being taught in our schools.

Had to laugh at the Captain meme.

When I was a kid, I was amazed at popcorn ceilings, esp. ones with glitter. Then I grew up, and had to paint it. Mess. Mess.

Margaret (Peggy or Peg too) said...

Sheila, these dumb asses are crazy!!

Susan, my aunt had those with glitter too when I was little I thought it was so cool. But that was 1966.😁
