The Joys of Painting....
Well, we had our first painting mishap yesterday. We were in the midst of painting the "man-cave", and Chad went to pour more paint, and somehow, the can slipped, and I turn around to find a huge splat of Cowboys gray paint on the carpet, coffee table and sofa(luckily a sofa that is soon to be replaced). At that moment sheer panic almost set in when I realized we...meaning the children....killed our carpet cleaner in the move...as well as the one we borrowed from my mother-in-law...in the move. However, the Little Green Machine came to the rescue...thank goodbness! After about 45 miniutes of cleaning the spot, there is only a slight remnant of the Cowboy gray paint on the floor, and the rest is on the wall where it properly belongs. Although I'm not sure Chad will ever be allowed to pour the paint again.
I'm a transplanted Texan, currently living outside of Charlotte, NC, with my husband, Chad, who was brave enough to take on me and my crazy brood. I am mom to 4 beautiful girls, Jordan, Kayla, Kacie, and Gracyn. We are also grandparents to our first grandchild, Tristian. We have 2 dogs, a boxer named Luke, and bullmastiff named Layla, and 3 cats, . I have had the privilage of bringing 3 additional children into the world through gestational surrogacy(their bun, my oven), and am working on journey #4. I am thrilled that I have been able to play a part in something so wonderful. I'm also a nurse in high risk OB Yes, I know it's chaos, but oh well, this is my life, and I wouldn't change it for the world!
