i might as well add a TV and music center and a NEW CAR!!!!! only kidding, i just got one.
but i do need vanna white to point these things out for me.
well, i am determined to get this done by .........friday, er, friday week. meanwhile the deadlines are all mounting.
i want to thank kathy for coming over today and helping me sort...again.
and "annie" (see previous posts regarding annie and her family's snapshots) popped by with persimmons, yummm, thank you sweetie pie - she's been feeling sick - feel better.
and tom, who came and took measurements for the project "garage" where we are going to be putting in a few walls and windows and canvases racks and shelves for more of lisa's studio. of course my husband doesn't know of this project because he refuses to read my blog (because he doesn't believe in blogs).
also, i need to say hello to my sweet daughter brooke who recently moved to LA and has been trying to reach me to see how i'm doing, but i haven't heard the phone ring......the new studio is like a cavern.
and my husband who has been looking for me, but can't seem to see me down the hallway as there is too much laundry between us. i think there might be others looking for me, but i wouldn't know.
gosh, the new studio could also be a refuge for criminals.
