As I read Camryn's post this morning, I was thinking about the oxymoron that is MY LIFE. I am an impatient perfectionist. Whuh?! That's right. I stress over things being perfect, but then I am insanely impatient. Does that combo even exist in real life? Well apparently it does in mine.
Do you want something to look super nice, but 72 million hours later, you decide that enough is enough and opt out of moving the bed so you can paint behind the headboard . . . ?
I got impatient- didn't want to wait for the hubby. And I was tired. I was a brand new mom, and no one was going to see my white patch of hidden wall. Otherwise I would have taken the time to hurl mattress to the floor, scoot the box springs to the side with ease, and lift the headboard back a couple feet myself. I was relieved that I still had the paint can in the basement when we moved. Although now I am feeling deep chagrin for not taking pictures.
But you are in luck! Because Camryn did! Head on over to Mean Mommy University and read all about her 'blonde moment'. I'm just SOO glad that I'm not the only one that has those.
ps- here's one for the road:
A blonde has just gotten a new sports car. She cuts in front of a semi, and almost causes it to drive over a cliff. The driver furiously motions for her to pull over, and she does. The driver gets out and draws a circle, telling her to stand in it. Then he gets out his knife and cuts up the leather seats. He turns around and sees she's smiling. So he goes to his truck, takes out his baseball bat, and starts busting her windows and beating her car. He looks back to see that she's laughing. He's really mad now, so he takes his knife and slices her tires. He turns around and she's laughing so hard, she's about to fall down. He demands, "What's so Funny?!" To which she replied, "Every time you weren't looking, I stepped out of the circle!"
