Begging has ensued and gosh darn it, I was going to squash that little bugger before it became all out drama. See, we have been preparing for a bit of kitchen home improvement so my littlest monkey has been doing a great job with independent play the last few days.
Well, he was done with it. He came marching down the stairs at 6:17 this morning and said ‘Mom, you are going to make stuff and paint with me today.’ There would be no further discussion.
We headed out to Michael’s crafts for all out crafty-zainy day. We started in the kids crafts and then headed to what I call the edible section and what to my wondering eyes do appear but Duff my cake decorating dear? Yessiree, Duff of Ace of Cake, has a new line of cake making supplies.
So, we came home eager to start crafting and caught my husband on his way out to Home Depot. Why you ask? oh, this is a good one:
Being super-smarties that we are, we decided that we would keep the beautiful black granite sink we already have and not get a new one when the granite is installed tomorrow. I mean, why run up the home improvement bill right? Gosh a new sink would mean we would want an under-mount which means polishing the granite edges and more money and a plumber and spending more money…..right? Well, my dear darling called me last night (where was I? come back tomorrow) to tell me that the sink broke while he was removing it.
