Soda's Update

My little munchkin is on the mend -
But now that it's over I can tell you that we were a couple of zombies over all of this -
So much so that we postponed our cruise for next Fall ( the only place they had for us and we had to upgrade to get it )
There was no way we could go days after she had her operation - she was lethargic and I couldn't bear the thought of something happening to her while we were away.
It wasn't a hard decision at all - in fact I was so filled with anxiety about leaving her - that once we decided we would postpone - a feeling of complete peace came over me.
She's an older dog - and she has a heart murmur - so being put under to remove a malignant tumor
( it was breast cancer ) was a huge risk and she had a lot of medication to take after ( and still has another week of it )
BUT SHE'S OK !!!!!!!!!!!
She's come through it with flying colors - what a tough little girl - really.

The only thing she asks is that I cover her up while she recuperates.........................she sits wherever she wants to lay -  and looks up at me questioningly - until I place a blanket on her and then she curls up under it and naps.

There'll always be cruises -
There's only one Soda - and she owns us -

I have to thank everyone who left such kind comments about her - they were more appreciated than you can know.

Life is good
Life is so. so good

Much love,

Do that to me one more time...............................

That's what my furniture says to me -

I can never get enough of a girl like you ♪♫
Paint me, like you just did, oh baby  ♪
Do that to me once again   ♪♫♪

I don't usually post on the weekends and here I am posting on both days - there's just so much going on with that little guest room !

Last week I asked if I should keep the armoire in the little room - or a dresser - most of you voted for the armoire - so I decided to go with the dresser LMHO - but I did give it a quick makeover anyway - and I do mean quick - as in 20 minutes or so.
Paris Grey - the white was already on it ( when it was duck egg blue )

Dresser makeover - Paris Grey Chalk Paint

This thing is heavy - as in if this thing fell back it would have killed me instantly.  With just my legs sticking out like the wicked witch that I am..................
So heavy that I should have worn depends when we lifted the top piece off to move the bottom piece ( too much information I know )
So heavy - as in I may have popped a blood vessel or two and I can lift heavy things believe me.

My Son dropped in for a visit and I asked if he could help John take the top piece off ( again ) because it wasn't level
He did it himself !!!
Oh my God - I don't know how he did it

Mom says - Did you pee a little when you did that?
Gordie says - Ugghhh Mom - why would I pee?
Mom says - From the weight ?
Gordie says - That's gross - you're my MOTHER - don't talk like that
Mom says - Like what?  Sheesh - it's just pee
Gordie says - You should have worn Depends
Mom says - I know that.........................

But I digress - you didn't come by to hear about my bladder after all.

It's a very light coat of grey actually - some duck egg blue is peaking through here and there but I kind of like that
And I left the white parts as chippy as they were - cutting the painting time in half I'm sure

Paris Grey Chalk Paint Dresser Makeover

 It's in the hall landing - and it's ridiculously too big for the space but that's where it's staying until I get the office done - ( and God knows when that'll be - it's the last room to do upstairs and I'm not in the hurry that I should be )  I DO have the perfect spot for it in the reading room downstairs - but JOHN'S t.v. is in the way.

But it suits the space better then the duck egg would have

It can always go back to it sometime in the future - no big deal-ee-o - right?
I DO love the color - it just didn't fit

( I'm writing that because now that I'm looking at it - I'm afraid you're all going to say I shouldn't have touched it ) 

You can see the original 2 part posts on the first makeover HERE and HERE
I dry brushed a little gray on the 2 interior drawers as well - very little actually.

Paint me - like you just did  ♪
Oh baby................... 
Do that to me one more time  ♪♫♪

Now I officially have clothes in my bedroom - in both guest rooms and the upstairs landing

John says - Are you sure you have enough drawers
Suzan says - I could probably use just one more 
John says - I think there's a corner in the shed outside we could probably squeeze one more in 
John says - It's too much - there's dressers all over the bloody place 
John says - It's like living in a shop

Yaddy yaddy yadda

I'm thinking of secretly taping him - so you get the audio
