Not only did she appreciate the beauty that is yard vandalism, but she took a photo.
Speaking of photos, Brett, look what I found as a token of my appreciation. Sober Grad '94. You looking cute as always (far left) and me being mature - um, as always - with my finger up my nose.
2. We just got our unclaimed property checks from the State of California. The money that we claimed LAST YEAR. I say checks as in plural, since they split up the amount and divided it equally, so Roger and I both got one. We agreed that since we didn't expect the money that we were allowed to spend it on whatever we wanted. Guilt free. No explanations necessary.
Roger has already got himself a bike. Fast mover, that one.
My first thought was a new backsplash, but he's challenged me to spend it on myself and not crap for the house. Same difference in my book, but does anybody have a suggestion? I've got no ideas. Nada. Zilch.
3. Last weekend I finally finished painting what felt like the whole house. Along with all the downstairs rooms, the new color also went up the stairway and onto the ceiling. I even got to bust out my ghetto fabulous brush taped to a roller extender stick thing to cut in the corners and guess what I noticed when I got it out of the garage?
And wouldn't you know...it's almost an EXACT MATCH of my "new" color.
So it would seem that 'Toasted Marshmallow' is also known as Laura Ashley's 'Sand 3' and has graced the walls in two of our previous houses.
Pathetic. Although I'll just call it consistent.
