And hoo boy, was that a good week.
Vacation, Day One: It started with filling up the DEE-luxe swimming pool:
and then I had a little home improvement project to tackle. I had an old bookcase in front of the living room window that the cats like to hang out on:
(Yes, my house is THAT MESSY. Deal with it.) The bookcase was falling apart and needed to be replaced. I'd been looking forEVER for something to go in that window, but nothing was the right size. I didn't want just another Sauder piece-of-crap bookcase; I wanted something different. And then! I found a vintage fainting couch/chaise/window seat/whatever-you-wanna-call-it at an estate-sale store. Unfortunately, it was a little too short for the cats to sit on it and still look out the window, but I figured I could remedy that by picking up some concrete blocks at Home Depot.
Dear Home Depot: Maybe "stacked in a wobbly wall on an uneven pallet" is not the best way to stock concrete blocks. I'm just sayin'.
Yep, it was the first day of vaca and I'd narrowly averted death.
But! A mere flesh wound was not going to deter me. I got the blocks, got the couch set up, covered the seat with some fabric (because cats), and we were good to go.
The cats have not sat on it yet. SIGH.
But! Day One also included the purchase of a pirate costume:
Because when you see a pirate costume for sale for a dollar, you buy it, obviously.
And good things were still to come:
Back soon with more. I'LL BET YOU CAN'T WAIT. Ha.
