A few months ago I won another award at work (sure, I'm allowed to brag a little, I did after all work hard for it...) and so I decided to buy myself a keepsake with the cash award. While I could always use some new clothes - I really wanted a keepsake. You know... as a reminder of why I set the alarm for 5:30 AM every day. So... I tucked the money away until I saw just the right thing and voila! this week I found it. I thought about it for a few days and decided to hell with the '30 day buying rule' because technically the money had already been set aside for at least that long anyway. So I picked it up today after work and hung it on my wall as soon as I got home. I couldn't wait to see what it looked like, then I couldn't wait to share with you all. I haven't decided if I am overly excited, or simply impatient. Jody; I can hear you gasping already !! (Jody loves tulips)
My kids will be THRILLED because they have been trying for the longest time to get me to take down the outdated wooden country shelf - you know.. the ones with the heart cut outs! I refused because I knew I would need something to hide the large screw nails that were holding the shelf.
So... now that I've covered the old screw nail holes - please try to ignore the paint chips in the wall that I made when I lost my balance, nearly fell off the couch and scraped the wall with the hammer as I was stumbling to catch myself. Better the wall than another injury because my big toe nail is already about to fall off as it is.... but that's another story. (perhaps left OFF the blog)
