St. Patricks Day...

So...guess what? I didn't wear green today. Not a bit. And guess what else? I didn't get pinched. Not once....ohhh....to be an adult.

Today I had the LOUDEST cough EVER. And I don't mean I coughed and it was loud ONCE- I mean I coughed a lot of times and a lot of times it was LOUD. I felt like I was a roaring lion every time I coughed...it was THAT loud. And it's to the point that once I start coughing I have to go at it for like...a minute at least...otherwise I can't breath...or I still sound like a lion...but purring instead. Make sense? Not fun. BUT- i am feeling sooo much better all around so it's all good.

The lady that yelled at me came in to the office again today. This time she didn't smell like poop. Then again, my nose is stuffed. So...who knows? But us at the office have decided that she is kinda the type of person that automatically...ALWAYS assumes the worst in people. There is NEVER an optimistic attitude. I hope that I never become like that. Where I just assume everyone means harm when they say something. I usually like to look on the bright side of things....I try to anyway. Sometimes it makes Clay mad. Like, he is trying to just vent to me about something or someone...and I say, "oh well they probably meant this....you probably misunderstood" and yeah. He doesn't really like that. So I've learned to just say, "I'm sorry." But...I must admit, I haven't mastered this quality yet. Try...try...again.

I have been wanting to show you guys this awesome thing my friend Lori did.
Isn't it awesome? (I took this from her blog...that's why it says "my wall"- it's her wall, not mine)...anyway. It's at the end of her hallway. Lori is the one that helped me with my chair and headboard...and we're currently working on bedding- you know...duvet cover, pillows, etc. Anyway, we decided to do a project a month. Her January project was painting her wall like THAT! She basically took posterboard....cut out that shape....and then spray painted the stencil on her wall! It took her a while cause I think she had to do a couple coats on each, and wait for one to dry before she could do another...etc. But I LOVE IT! Every time I go to her house I just sighhhhhhh and swoon over her wall. I kinda wanna do it myself...but it sounds like so much effort that I'm not sure I'm willing to put in....lazy. I know. But, I wanted to show you guys...cause I know you love a good project that turns out AWESOME. Oh yeah, and she did have to touch up a bit after...just some of the edges and stuff. But she did a really good job.

Today I fed my hubby cereal for dinner, did the dishes (that had been there a while since I've been sick), and swept and mopped our living room floor. It didn't take too long, or feel like much of an accomplishment...but I am freakin PROUD of myself. It sadly is a big accomplishment for me...I'm so tired after work. But the stuff had to get done....and I was a little motivated cause Clay came home and went straight out back to scoop poop. Yep, SCOOP POOP. Not a job I will ever volunteer. Or do if asked. All winter Clay said stuff like, "but I take care of the yard..." so...since the season has come to take care of the yard, I am just gonna let him hold up his end of the bargain:) I would probably cry if I had to do that. Seriously...I can just see it. I try scooping a pile of poo...and it breaks apart and falls on my shoe. Couldn't you see that happening? Of course I would cry...and then say in a really REALLY whiny voice "Honey I can't DO THIS!" Thank goodness that wont ever happen. The only way I am scooping poop is if Clay dies. Even then...maybe I'd hire a neighbor boy or something. 25cents an hour? Sounds just right.

Well...this post turned out to be a whole lot of random. Ohhhhhhhh well. I'm out. Love you guys.

I don't think you'll find anyone but a little kid to scoop poop for 25 cents. That wall is cool. It gives me ideas. Like maybe on a baby room you could spray paint their NAME all over! Wouldn't that be cool? Ideas, ideas . . . I hope you're getting better. I only worry because I had a terrible cough last year that ended up being pneumonia and it physically hurt really bad in the end. But if you feel well, you're probably on the up. It was good talking to you today :)

That wall is so cool! You should do it! Man, how did she cut out that stencil?! That would be really detailed, and did she just think of it or see it somewhere- what a designing genius! I wish I lived by you so you could help me do stuff. St, Patricks day- forgot all about it- BUT- now that you reminded me- heheh I will pinch mike, just have to put some green on first. Well- I hope you get feeling better soon danyelli, don't do too much work around the house- and also- doing dishes is a huge accomplishment! Alot of women don't clean- so I think it's a huge accomplishment.

I do get a lot of comments on my wall. I'm glad you love it too. If only it weren't sooooo much work I would do it again in my bedroom or something.

You are such a crack up. I bust aloud laughing when I read the poop comment about the lady coming in and how you couldn't smell her, but you had a cold.

Clay the Pooper Scooper. What a job. I'm glad you love your dog, but I'm sooo glad I don't have one.

Just wait until you have little kids and Clay can get them excited about poop scooping. Jeff does that with Gunnar. Gunnar knows that if he wants to play frisbee with dad, the poop scooping needs to be done. I gag, literally, everytime.

I love the wall and I am sorry about the woman that agreed with your co-worker, I hate when I know I am right and someone does that! I am with you on the poo and I like it that I don't have a dog at this time. I love you hugs grams
