Achieving Inner Peace :)

I am passing this on to you because it definitely
worked for me. By following the simple advice I
read in an article, I have finally found inner
peace... It said: "The way to achieve inner peace
is to finish all the things you have started". So,
today I have finished one bottle of vodka, a
bottle of red wine, a bottle of Jack Daniel's, my
Prozac and a small box of chocolates. I feel
better already!

Scratch the Prozac in that mixture--too dangerous!

While you are feeling good, don't forget to finish your "LIST" :-)

My list seriously sucks. We were supposed to get our computer today, but the guy building it said he will not have it done till Friday. So now off to the store for a computer desk which I will have to assemble tonight. This weekend we are going to Indiana for a x-mas party. And since I have the 21st - 2nd off, my wife signed me up to paint the interior of the house. ALL OF IT. We bought 10 gallons back on labor day due to a sale. I was pushing it off, but wife vetoed my so called hunting/relaxation vacation and decided working around the house would be much more beneficial. :>( Should I have any free time, then I will be allowed to chase bunnies around.

Here's a painting story for the road Jim: I used to have a VERY diplomatic boss, Elmer was the easiest guy in the world to work for, and o asked him where he learned that. He explained that he had a wife and 3 daughters around the house, and anyone trying to live with 4 women is gonna HAVE TO be a diplomat!

Well, that wasn't bad enough - toward Fall his mother-in-law came to live with them too! And of course her presence took some adjusting. They'd been planning on re-painting the living room, and in fact had already gotten the paint, and one day they "sneaked" out for lunch and M-I-L assured them she'd "be fine - you kids go have a nice time." So they did. When they came back, they learned she'd gotten bored and decided to help with the painting! Here the old gal had used every towel and sheet in the house for dropcloths, managed to get a roller wet and painted the living room! Well, except for up by the ceiling where she couldn't reach, and she knew they wouldn't want her to hurt herself moving the couch or anything. So she'd painted this lovely ring right around the whole room! Took
the whole family the rest of the weekend to finish the job - I askled if his mother-in-law was still alive, and Elmer said oh yeah, it was kindof a bonding experience. :) At least now his towels match the room!

I like that. I used to work in finish construction, so I am extremely fussy. My wife was gonna use this as a bonding experience, I told her to just sit back and enjoy the scenery. I painted our mud room about two months. I taped off all the moldings and had everything cleared. I put on the first coat of edging, and told her to go aheah and do the second coat. I walked in and about had a heart attack. She managed to get paint all over the molding and door. I tried to be diplomatic, but to no avail. I was hotter than a hen in heat. Reason was I took the time to tape everything off, and did the first coat myself, and did not even get any on the tape. She managed to coat the tape, and coat the moldings. I told her if she was actually trying to help, she would take pride in her work and slow down and not rush thru. she was being sloppy, not purposely, she just did not consider it to be important. I was scrubbing the paint residue off the moldings forever. Bad part is she was complaining to help. so now I will be painting myself all week. actually my little cousin is coming over to help, but I have not seen his work yet. :>)

I am not permitted to use paints or brushes, or rollers in any way EXCEPT to clean them. If you want to know why; guys email me and I will give you instructions on how to avoid ever having paint anything appear on the List.
