Life happened and I got distracted like a kitten with a shiny object.
I stopped noticing the surround until a friend offered, "You know, you can just pop that fireplace surround off. It would look so much better."
What fireplace surround? Oh, wait...
Last Friday night, I sent a text to a friend that looked a little something like this:
"Please tell me that I am not the only person home on Friday night...in jammies? Will you help me remove my fireplace thing-a-ma-jig?"
My loyal pal, designer extraordinaire Karen, knew that this text was code for:
"I'm in my jammies and enjoying a cocktail. Will you come remove my fireplace thingy for me?"
She grabbed her handy dandy toolbox and came to my rescue. She and my daughter worked together, battling the dust bunnies and the ashes, to remove the fireplace thingy!
Meanwhile, I mixed drinks and said helpful things like, "Do you like dark chocolate or milk chocolate better?"
Our dog, the great photo-bomber!
Thank you to Michele from The Great Read for sending me this amazing book about Dr. Paul Farmer!
Snow is falling outside and I am dreaming of curling up and reading more than two sentences before I hear,
"MOOOOOM! He touched me!" or "Where is the refrigerator?" or "Can you wipe my bottom?"
