I wish I could be this relaxed!
I am going to have a good day Friday - it's the Pennsylvania quilt show and I'm going with my friends Cornelia and Lynn. That should be a lot of fun - really looking forward to it. Have a great weekend! Lets all channel Howard this weekend and really relax and let it all hang out. :O)

I've finished three and have four to go (six for the table and one for the desk). Now that I've worked out all the problems that I was having with this yesterday I'm moving right along. No ripping out seams today - hooray! Mark wanted to know why I was starting this before I was finished with our bedroom --- because if I didn't get away from that hell for a project I was going to kill someone! I'll be getting back to it next week - ugh.

I didn't know what to do! I didn't want to go near it because it was injured and may have rabies. I called Animal Control but they were already closed and their message said that if a dog or cat were injured to call the sheriff. Well, Howard is fine but I didn't know what to do with the animal so I called the sheriff. They sent an officer to our house and just before he arrived it had died. He said if it had still been alive he would have shot it. Lovely. So he and Jason scooped it up with shovels and we put it in a garbage bag but the officer said to put it in our trash can!!! uuuugh. Thank goodness Friday is trash pickup day for us. It was a huge ground hog - it was really heavy - at least 10 or 12 pounds. I just can't believe Howard did it! It was really sad and gross and stressful.

Jason is not doing well with the Molly and the boyfriend situation. Last night was movie night (an early movie night since it was a school night). Molly, Jason, boyfriend, and another friend all watched a movie. 9PM Molly was walking boyfriend out.
Jason comes in - "what time is it?"
Me: around 9.
Jason: watch! I swear it will be 10 minutes before she comes back in!
Me: lol, Jason, the windows are open I can hear her out there talking and laughing - it's fine.
Jason: It will be 10 minutes! You watch! I'm telling you last time it was 10 MINUTES!
Me: lol, why are you timing your sister? Leave her alone. It's fine.
Jason: IT'S FREAKING ME OUT! Sometimes at work I'll be like - uuuuuuugh. just thinking about them dating.
Me: LOL LOL LOL!
Jason: I'm serious! They were sitting on the sofa watching the movie and Molly had her HEAD ON HIS SHOULDER!! AND THEY WERE HOLDING HANDS FOR GODS SAKE!
Me: LOL LOL LOL!
Then he opens the front door and says MOLLY! I'm pretty sure Goodbye has been covered by now!
ME: on the floor peeing my pants! LOL It is so funny the way he is acting. I can't keep a straight face through his rants! My god its funny. And Molly is completely clueless! LOL I finally said to her last night - please don't upset Jason. He can't take much more. That of course made her laugh. God help him if he ever sees boyfriend kiss her! He may have a seizure! Apparently keeping it clean for Jason means a sofa cushion between them and a wave goodbye at the door. LOL.
Today is laundry day for me and I have about 8 loads to do so I've decided to watch movies, stitch, and fold laundry all day. Not very exciting I'm afraid, but hopefully I'll get something finished worth showing.

Second, I hate wallpaper! Back in 1996 I went on a wallpaper frenzy and put up borders in every room of my house. I used Laura Ashley paper. My mother warned me back then that "this is real paper Mar, it's not prepasted - hard to put up and harder to come down." Did I listen ... Noooooo. So up it went. A few years ago I removed all the borders on my first floor (living room, dining room, kitchen, family room, and powder room). I know exactly how hard it is to get this paper back off which is why it has taken until today for me to tackle the bedrooms. Poor Ryan, he's 12 with baby paper in his roomAnd Jason who will be 18 in three months still has jets and stripes to live with (and it IS the prepasted kind so I really have no excuse for why I haven't taken this down yet!)And Molly and Kellie are still looking at pink walls with ballerinasI decided to do my paper first since my room didn't have toys and junk to move.Ugh. This paper is taking the paint right off the wall with the paper. Apparently I used some seriously heavy duty paste! In some places CHUNKS of drywall are coming off too!
