There's a lot of projects I've taken on that I regretted simply because they were stupid.
But then there's only two things that were great ideas, but they sucked to execute.
And I hated those projects, so, so much.
This project will forever be my number 1 mistake:
I mean, I like it 'n all, but I would never, ever do it again. Unless my family wants to start visiting me at the state hospital, or the "stay-ho", as I like to call it.
I've never called it that. I just felt like it should have a nickname.
Beams. Beams in my entryway. Definitely forever my numero 2 of big, fat mistakes.
Suckiest bunch of sucky work that ever sucked. I can't even explain why it sucked so bad--
it just did. Hours of caulking, spackling,
I can't even discuss how much drywalling with the corner tool I've done this week without an eye twitching.
I mean, I still love the idea, but this was one of those things where it makes you wanna rock back and forth in a corner, and swear to never come up with an idea like this ever again, and you want to divorce yourself.
Let me put it another way--
Doing the other side's beam sounds as awesomely fun as going to the DMV, retaking the driver's test, then getting a commercial license, just because it's so fun, and bringing all my kids with me, plus their friends. And no one's eaten for hours.
And we all know that's pretty darned fun.
If I could go way back in time and warn myself, and I only had like 10 seconds, then I'd yell as fast as I could something along the lines of:
"Do NOT go on that high school tour! You'll regret it I promise! Oh and also don't make your son a window bed AND don't even think about doing beams but other than that 2 thumbs up okay bye!"
I don't mean to be a downer today, but the thing is, I am still not done, here. I just ran out of paint.
I wish it was done. I want more than anything to move on and not caulk one more thing--
(Steam cleaned my carpet, just for you. Thanks for noticing.)
So I promise to be more upbeat next time we talk. Swear. Just please, please for the love, tell me I don't have to do the other side. Ever.
If you say I do the friendship is over.
