It was shopping Day, which took allllllll day because we made a lot of stops. For instance we went to Gordmans where I got some jeans that actually fit (to avoid the usual horrible look of the skinny jeans they sell at Walmart I’ve been buying a size or two too big for years now).
Then we stopped at an Asian store seeking calpico but only got mochi.
And Menards where we bought tile to fix the bathroom counter top:
Then there were a bunch of others, including several Walmarts all over omaha looking for doggy diapers for the incontinent chihuaha.
And did I mention it rained the whole time?
Not that I mind rain.
Anyway, in other news the painter is a go. He did the official estimate and -get this- it is 2650$ which is 50$ LESS than we planned to spend doing it ourselves. It’s just the one color (which was what we planned to do) so we’ll need to paint the trim next year. My uncle didn’t approve, but honestly I don’t know how I could paint the outside, do all the inside stuff I hope to do before Christmas, and get all my writing, etc. etc. done, too. There are only so many hours, sadly. Plus I was tired of trying to get hubby and the brother motivated. I love them both, but neither ever wants to work on anything (and especially not scraping) so I spend all my time cheerleading them along and it gets soul draining.
Enough of that. Here’s my poppy that bloomed.
And I leave you with what we might as well vote for in November.
Have a good one!
