Okay mom got her nails done this week. She is … what did she say… conflicted. She doesn’t know if she loves the new paint or if she hates it. So we are throwing it out there – yay or nay?
It’s kind of a speckled color mixed with white, pink and black. Dad says it looks like Marble counter top that you would find in the kitchen – Snorts. He does have one thing right about that – mom’s expensive tastes – HA! Rolls with piggy laughter on that.
They also have this speckled look in sapphire, white and black and red, white and black which are possibilities for next time if she figures out if she likes this or not. She said she was also looking at maybe getting white tips with this look next time – whatever that means.
So what do you think? Here’s another close up look. It kind of grows on you?
Yep, you guessed it from yesterday April’s Fool’s Day blog posting. The Hotel Thompson is now under construction. Day 2 and I’m ready to move in with any of you for the duration. Anyone at all. I don’t require much… really I don’t.
You see, this entire renovation has snowballed into what dad’s calls a cluster. You don’t understand cluster? Let me explain it to you the way mom explained it to him. Go ahead and get settled in – I’ll wait. Are you ready?
Okay mom and dad were discussing buying new furniture this year. Apparently what they have now came over with Noah on the ark. Rolls piggy eyes. It really didn’t but that’s how mom explained it. Dad said fine. We will get new furniture this year. And he was fine with that because even *he* said we needed new stuff. This is where it snowballed, went down a hill, around a curve and became a cluster.
Then mom said:
“Well, if we are going to get rid of our current furniture, why don’t we go ahead and get rid of the china cabinet, hutch and kitchen table that I hate so much as well. And since all of that will be gone and the rooms would basically be empty, why don’t we go ahead and look at that new floor we wanted for the front room because you know this carpet is shot. And hey, if we are going to do new flooring in the front room, why don’t we look at the kitchen and hallway too – that way it can all match and flow. And oh my goodness – if the room is empty, we can paint a couple of walls to give it some color in here. And then you know what honey, we can shop for the new furniture and accessories.”
I saw daddy writing something down the entire time he was listening to mom. He called me over and gave me this piece of paper. Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. But he’s a good man… I think. He ended up saying the worse words ever invented for a man to say to a woman…. “Whatever you want honey.” He then handed over the check book. My friends, I really feel sorry for my dad.
Oh, and did I tell you the best part my friends. Mom wants ALL of this done by April 17th, 2015. Squeals and rolls – yeah okay. Don’t worry, I’ll be taking pictures of before, during and after to share. Right now, I would describe it as his/hers and ours in the making. Wish me luck!
Happy April Fool’s Day my friends. What? That’s not how it’s suppose to go? Oh, I get it. I’m suppose to “fool” you into something that you are not aware of. Oh I see – that’s how it works. Well, since I’ve already blown that part let me go in another direction. That would be fun, right? Nods piggy head – sure it will be.
I will tell you three things. ONE of them is true. YOU guess which one. How’s that for an April Fool’s Day? These may be tough so work it out my friends.
Statement 1 –
Since mommy loves the Mickey Mouse so much, dad thought he would meet her half way. He loves the rock group KISS.
So, daddy compromised and got this rocking Mickey Mouse/KISS tattoo this past weekend. Cool huh?
It looks tough. It looks cool. Mommy loves it. Daddy loves it. It’s a win-win situation. Don’t you think it’s groovy?
Statement 2 –
Oh dear piggy heavens help me – please help me! Mom and dad are doing a complete renovation here at the Hotel Thompson. Work started today and should be completed by Friday, April 17, 2015.
We are talking gut work – front room, kitchen and hallway. Out with all of the old – furniture, carpet and yucky linoleum in the kitchen. Painted walls, new floors and new furniture – perhaps some other really cool stuff.
All by Friday, April 17, 2015. Can I come live with you?
Statement 3 –
Our next door neighbor is getting a piggy – squeals – I’m going to have a girlfriend for real! They’ve talked about it for a while now.
I’m so excited. I can’t wait for you any longer Miss Piggy. 😦
There you go my friends. Three statements – which one is the truth? Go!
Mom is on the war path of wanting to upgrade some things in the kitchen. You just know I’m going to be asking all of my friends to come over and help out, right? The quicker this little project gets done, the quicker I get my mommy back where she belongs – with me!
It’s nothing major in the kitchen. It’s just a little cosmetic uplift. You know some fresh colorful paint on the walls – mom so hates a white wall. I just don’t understand her adversion to them. And, she wants to put a new floor down. She says it’s not a big project and that she’s done them before. You go mom – you rock!
I’ve helped with pulling up the old linoleum floor here and there. My snout is a mighty powerful instrument just for your information – snorts. I will definitely keep you posted with before/after pictures when this project gets on the road. Don’t tell her but I’m kind of looking forward to the makeover. The paint she has picked out is pigawesome!
And what better time to start all of this construction when we have the problem with the roof. Something has to be done to the little drip that is there now. We definitely don’t want the ‘small’ drip turning into a giant down pour. I’ll keep you posted my friends.
