Can I say Stalker!!!

I spent the better part of my vacation crafting up a storm, and totally enjoyed every bit of it, which brings me to trying to revamp my bathroom in 2 days!!! So the plan was I would clean and paint the bathroom and my bob-the-builders would install the vanity, cabinet and make a radiator cover and with that I decided that the freestyle knit project would become a UFO and left it at that. Well I got my mind set to clean and paint the bathroom walls... tell me... why in the world did I decide to start my revamp on a hot day....? In the process of removing a fixture from the wall I ended up pulling a layer of sheetrock up... oh boy... more work... *sigh*
Pulled out my MH spackle, tape and tool to repair my blunder... Well everything was going smoothly, but at the same time... I felt I was being watched.... then again it could've been the heat getting to me... geez... so early in the project... oh boy.
I managed to get the wall cleaned and scrapped and managed to repair my blunder... perfect time for a break would you say.... *giggling*... I returned to the project at hand and while adding another layer of spackle... guess who appears... whining... please... please... I don't want to be a UFO... oh-boy... what now!!!! well I managed to finish spackling although Ms. UFO refused to budge... so what does a gal do... work around her....lol
I had to speed up the prep work because it was getting too hot in the bathroom and moved on to finishing up my prep work... again.... Ms. UFO... was making herself seen... but being a diligent one I refused to let her stop me... Whew!!! I finished my prep... can I say break time.
.. and left Ms. UFO hanging... if that's what she wants to do... fine by me.... and had a tasty lunch. Finally I can move all my cleaning gadgets and begin painting.... LEAVE ME ALONE!!!! she kept getting in my darn way... when I moved she moved......Dayummmm!!! can't you see I'm busy... listen Ms. UFO... I meant well, I thought you could become my dream project... but its not happening... so please vacate......
After all was said and done.... I

caved in..... but I was able to get most of the bathroom done... now where in the world are my bob-the-builders....

Hi Ladies..
@ Virtuous - My daughter was the photographer... she was like mom... now tell me again... what exactly are you doing... she took the pictures and said you spend too much time alone in this house....geez. I have A/C but only in the bedrooms & sunroom. I refuse to go central... for a whopping 10K in this 80 year old house... and for just 3 months out-of-the-year....I'll endure....lol

TOO FUNNY!!! I might be inclined to agree with your dtr! LOL

Can't wait to see your UFO finished!

Madelyn said...

ROFL, that's funny. Weren't you afraid of getting spackling or something else on your top?

Good luck with the bathroom. You're good to tackle that project.

KimT said...

those ufo's certainly know how to nag, don't they?

anna said...

LOL @ UFO stalking you! Sometimes it happens like that. :-D

Judy said...

You should be proud, a job well done on the bathroom. I have to try knitting with gloves on, though...that takes talent!

Knitaholictoo said...

Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do! LOL

Sheila said...

I'm glad you ladies enjoyed my knit/reno antics.

@ Madelyn - I made sure I checked for droppings of spackling before placing the knitting on anything...lol

@ Judy... the next time I mention revamping a room... remind me not to do it during the summer...lol

Sheila said...

@ Gold - Its so hot that its taking the paint forever to dry... and I took it a step further and painted all the bedroom doors... so now we can't run the A/Cs because we can't close the doors until the paint dry... now talk about hot....lol

You need a restraining order against the U.F.O!

Mary Sarah said...

You're too funny! Just got back from a trip and enjoyed your stalker story!! Sometimes you just have to stop what you're doing and give your attention to the real priority! lol! BTW, your bathroom is looking good!

Can't wait to see the bathroom finished and all gussied up. It's going to look fabulous.

Just can't get over the plastic glove knitting, why take the minute to take them off when you can still manage your needles.
