We drove by the house tonight – just like we do every night – to check how things are progressing. I feel like Pinky and the Brain – a cartoon my kids used to love – it’s about a couple of white lab rats and every night Pinky (the stupid one) asks Brain (the smart one, of course), ” “Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?” – to which Brain answers “The same thing we do every night, Pinky—try to take over the world!” Only in this case — every night I ask “What are going to do tonight?” and Pat answers “The same as every night – we’re going to see the house!” I haven’t decided who is Pinky or who is Brain — I’m pretty sure that most days we are both Pinky!
Anyway — back to the important stuff – the house! We drove by tonight and although it was 8:30 p.m., workers were still inside the house putting up the cabinets. Yes — I have places to store things! Not just to store them – but to hide them when company comes over. Don’t tell me you have never stuff things into a drawer because you are too lazy to put it away – but you don’t want it out when the company comes? I’m sure we are all guilty of over-stuffing at least a couple of drawers with this type of junk! I could see the workers through the open doors, putting in these lovely hiding places — exciting!
We also noticed that the air conditioner was in its proper place – so we can be nice and cool in our place!
When we returned home, I had an e-mail from our Hearthstone Agent, Kathryn – and she told us the sidewalks had been poured today – we were so engrossed in the cabinets and the air conditioner, we didn’t even notice the sidewalks! Lizzie and Liam are going to LOVE having a place to show off their artwork! Between the driveway and the sidewalks, it will be like an outdoor art gallery. It will be a beautiful place.
So — to recap today’s events — we have a PLACE to store and hide our stuff, we have something to cool our PLACE and Lizzie and Liam have a PLACE to show off their artistic talents! Could it get any better?
