Funny thing I said last night

This story was told to me by my husband. Remember, Cowboy is our cat.

My husband came home from work last night, and I had taped the academy awards. However, the tape ran out right before they were going to announce who won the award for best picture. I was asleep, and my husband asked me who won for best picture. I said "Cowboy." A little bit later he asked me again, and I said "Cowboy." Finally, after a little bit, he asked again, and I said "The departed." He had to check online anyway just to make sure that I wasn't delusional.

We do own the best cat in the world, but I don't think he'll be winning any academy awards....

Chaos & progress

Our garage is almost pretty enough to eat off the floor, there are boxes stacked up on tables in the garage, all the wallpaper is off in the kitchen and we are trying to take the glue off, there are cans of paint and paint materials on another table in the garage, we have a full curb of junk, I am putting out bags and boxes of usable stuff we don't need for the Vietnam Veterans association to pick up, I have packed a lot of the photos from our living room, there are scraps of wallpaper all over the kitchen and tracked into the living room, our house is full of so many liquor store boxes it looks like we need an intervention.

Harvest Brown is the new popular neutral. (710-D) Which we are going to use to paint a few rooms in our house. Check it!

When I get my hubby (hint hint) to post some photos on my blog, you won't have to use your imagination.

packing the first boxes

It's making the moving thing more real...packed up just a couple of boxes this weekend. My husband is taking a vacation day Sat Feb 24 to help me paint the house (and we might recruit a couple friends.) We've lived here since we've been married, so it's a little weird that we're finally getting ready to move out.

There seems to be so much to do, but it's been helpful to just tell myself we can only do one thing at a time.
