Crazy is Contagious

I think my craziness has spread to my husband.  As I wrote a few weeks ago, we do nothing easy and we always seem to juggle too many things.  We've just added one more thing and it's like introducing a chainsaw to the tennis balls that we've already been struggling to juggle.

My husband said we could not only be out of our house (as in everything is gone, the house looks great, and we are living elsewhere), but it would also be ready to list in two weeks.  Two weeks!  FOURTEEN DAYS. 

If you've ever been to our home, you'll understand why I'm freaking-the-frack out right now.  We have A TON of stuff.  I want to say we have a ton of sh*t, but that's what you call other people's stuff, right?  Not only do we have a ton of stuff to donate, sell, and pack, but we have a ton of projects that need to be completed.  You know, the ticky-tacky BS things that never seem to get done; new handles on cabinets, replacing switches & plugs, and stuff like that.  I guess now is the time to get said projects finished.  Additionally, I have painted every single vertical surface in this house.  And, by painted, I mean I PAINTED.  I actually have three walls that are tan with chocolate brown sponged on - it looks like a leopard print and it's very cool, but it will take at least two, if not three, coats of paint to cover it.  I almost regret my decision not to paint everything white way back when we painted. . .almost.

Having a toddler in the mix makes things damn near impossible, but my husband says it will all work out.  Uh, my husband works six-days each week and at least two evenings so I have no idea why he thinks anything will work out in his absence, but I guess he trusts that I can handle it.  I don't know if I should feel flattered or annoyed, but I suppose I can handle it so I'm trying to feel the flattery.

I'm not afraid of hard work or putting in long hours, but I should also mention that I have a very specific reason for wanting to take it easy for a couple more weeks.  Well, it looks like I won't have that luxury, so I'm hoping for the best outcome with that situation too.  Either way, it will make doing this project even harder than it should be.

Wish us luck/pray for us/whatever it is that you do because we're going to need all the help we can get!


  1. I can help on weekends if u need some. I like to paint, lol

  2. You're awesome, Stacey! I brought up painting just yesterday and he agreed that we'll be hiring it out because there is no way to do that kind of work with the kiddo underfoot. Thanks so much for the offer! :)
