It stormed all weekend which made me happy. It's like the sky is giving you permission to stay home, drink wine, read, and do nothing that requires getting out of pajamas.
I also needed to rest after completing the most daunting task of the century, which is to have a photograph not only printed (!), but also framed. In a frame you guys. That I purchased at the store for framing. My friend Kristen aptly deemed this a miracle. So you can imagine that I needed the whole weekend to recover from accomplishing the 8th Wonder of The World.
But then I got kinda full of myself and decided to try to actually hang it up. On an actual wall. On a hook. In my home. And that's when I realized I'm not cut out for so much ambition.
Notice The Framed Photo that is just propped against the wall? That is the story of my life. Because I am apparently allergic hammers and nails and commitment. What if I put the hole in the wrong spot! And I'm way too lazy for all that measuring nonsense. So shut up for suggesting that Pinterest. I am an overwhelmed victim here.
So that's when I decided to switch to stickers.
Because who can mess up sticking crap onto a bucket? Well, apparently I am also an expert at messing up basic children's crafts.
However if you ask me, it was false advertising. Those stickers should have come with a prominent warning stating, "These will not stick to your Pinterest dreams. Just give up and drink more wine."
So that's what I did.
We also sat around eating fajitas and watching Jimmy Kimmel's Mean Tweets. I think I was the only one out of 20 million people who hadn't watched them. But if you are the other person who never watches late night anymore, they are celebrities reading the mean tweets that they get from people, and it is hilarious.
The kids hung around being ragamuffins and working on crafts that were more successful than mine.
