But I have a couple of John says - Suzan says to go with it so maybe that could make up for it?
Ok - here we go with my french chateau dresser ( at least that's what I'm hoping it looks like )
There's still the last section on the left hand side that had to be dirtied up with some dark wax - but it's so close!
John says - It's looking good Suzan - how much do you think we can make on it?
Suzan says - Oh John - I just can't bear to part with it - I HAVE to keep this
John says - Spare me the Scarlett O'Hara drama, we can't get it into our room
Suzan says - I measured the wardrobe that's in our room - and it's bigger then this, so we can definitely get it in
John says - We had professional movers bring that in - and the room was empty at the time
Suzan says - So we'll just empty out the room - bring it in - and put everything back in
John mimics - So we'll just empty out the room - bring it in - and put everything back in - in a squeaky voice - I don't have a squeaky voice
Suzan says - You always make everything sound impossible and I always prove you wrong - so why don't we just give it a try - stop making everything so complicated all the time - and we'll sell the one that's in there now.
John Thunders - I MAKE EVERYTHING COMPLICATED? THAT'S RICH - THAT'S REALLY RICH
YOU WANT TO EMPTY OUT AN ENTIRE BEDROOM TO GET A DRESSER IN IT AND THEN PUT EVERYTHING BACK IN??????????
Suzan says - Yes - that's exactly what I want to do - you know John - some husbands move heaven and earth for their wives - I have a hard time getting you to move a dresser
Suzan says - and while the furniture is out - I'd like to paint the bedroom floor
John says - PAINT THE BEDROOM FLOOR???? I've got an idea - why don't we paint the window at the same time? That way you don't have to worry about curtains ever again - and then absolutely every square inch of the bedroom will be painted.
Suzan says - well that's just ridiculous -
John says - now you know how I feel about your ideas sometimes........................
Suzan says - and I'm painting the bedroom walls as well - because they definitely don't go with the dresser now......................
John shakes his head and walks away
And I got the coffee table tonight - and started on it right away
I took a break between this and the next
Suzan says - do you want a popsicle?
John says - no thanks
Suzan says - Please? We each need to eat a popsicle
John says - I don't feel like a popsicle - why do we NEED to eat one?
Suzan says - I need shutters for the window on the bread box doll house - and I thought popsicles sticks
would be great for that.
John says - You know no one would believe this - not in a million years. If I tried to tell Chris and Richard
( his golf buddies ) this, they would not believe it
Suzan says - I need you to saw these down for me
( this is going to be hilarious - can you just picture him dragging out his tools to saw 4 popsicle sticks -
I could probably just bite them down to size )
and the dresser from my adventures in pickin'
so I'm well on my way - just not finished with anything yet
Suzan says - John?
John says - yes Scarlett
Suzan says - Smile! - ( as I snap a photo of him in his boxers )
John says - DELETE IT NOW
Suzan says - No, there's a contest going on one of the blogs I follow - called "husbands in boxers" - and the funniest one wins a weekend trip to Vegas
John says - DELETE IT NOW
Suzan says - No, I really want to go to Vegas - and I think we have a good shot at this
John says - DELETE IT NOW - I'M NOT JOKING SUZAN - DELETE IT NOW
and grabs the camera out of my hand so roughly that I can't believe it's not bruised
Suzan says - That's abuse you know - that's absolute domestic abuse
John says - No actually SCARLETT- what you do to me is domestic abuse
The photo is deleted -
John goes to bed
I continue painting for awhile and then creep into the room
Suzan whispers - John?
John says - ummmph
Suzan says - I was only joking - there isn't a contest
John says - ummpph
Suzan says - Sweet dreams honey -
John says - thanks - hope I don't have nightmares after tonight
Suzan says - Do I drive you crazy?
John says - ummmppphhh - I think that's the intent isn't it
Suzan says - Don't I make normal women look boring?
John says - Sometimes boring is not a bad thing - are you going to post tonight's conversation?
Suzan says - Of course I am
John says -You're going to lose followers Suzan - so help me God, you're going to lose followers.
If I don't understand you - I don't know how any one else can, I'm saying this for your own good you know.
Suzan says - Goodnight Rhett -
John is the gentlest man on earth - and would never hurt a fly
Except if you try to take pictures of him in his boxers - that sort of
brings out the animal in him -
