I can see the light at the end of the tunnel
The FOR SALE sign is in the front yard! How cool is that?? Our first Open House is on Sunday, August 6. We are working on packing up the unnecessaries and getting rid of the why-do-we-still-have-this stuff. It's a chore, but it's also cathartic. I mean, why do we need STUFF anyways? That's a whole other tangent.... The only thing that's left to paint is the downstairs bathroom. I primed all the walls and the ceiling on Monday night. I'll paint it tomorrow and then it is done. We went to the Padres game tonight. We lost 1-0 against Houston. Whatever. It wasn't even a very good game. I read the Reader for the first 2-3 innings, then I sketched for a few innings. We've decided not to renew our season tickets for next year. It's just getting to be a major PITA getting down there, especially on Tuesdays. We miss at least 1 inning and sometimes 3 innings because of the traffic or because that damn freight train has to do whatever it does right as we, along with a thousand other people, need to cross the tracks. I'm not enjoying it as much as I used to, either. We hate to give up our awesome seats, but who's to say if we decide to purchase season tickets again we won't get better seats? :) I made crafts yesterday... I made Mom's birthday card. Mom, don't look. lol I also made this other card. I think the 2nd one is weird, but people at work like it. Go figure. Oh, the House Mouse card has 3D crystal lacquer on the whole fishbowl. I had to laugh - I put the lacquer on the card and put it in a safe area of my work desk, or so I thought. When I checked the card in the morning, there was a kitty footprint on the lacquer area. Those darn cats!!! I guess that was his contribution to the cardmaking process. Tomorrow I am going to work on my samples for my first class at the Cupboard. I am going to do 3D flowers for the class on the 17th, and for my class on the 30th, I'm going to do some fun french fry containers. You can check the calendar at the Cupboard for details.
