Oh Dear Lord, I’m ADD!

Okay, so if you care this morning I had 9 more things on my “to-do” list for my Pumpkin Carving party on Saturday. Today I spent 5 hours painting the front porch.  This is not on my list.  Shoot.  I’m suspicious I have a bit of ADD.   I went out to touch up the door frame, which was on my list and noticed the porch rails needed a coat of paint. While I was painting the porch I noticed three window sills that needed painting. While painting  one of the window frames I heard the new gate on the picket fence mocking me. The rest of the fence is white. The new gate isn’t.  So, to shut up that annoying gate,  I painted it. By this time it was 4:00 and I’d only done one more thing on my list.  Shoot. I came in and binged on s’mores.  My friend Sara, (Gitzen Girl, on my blogroll) gave me the idea. They were yummy. I immediately felt better.

Now, I want you to know, all 2 of you that read this :), my hand is swollen and killing me right now. But I’m smiling on the inside because of my happy porch. I suppose I’ll work on the last 8 things on my “to-do” list tomorrow.

I’m covered in paint!          My poor swollen hand



  1. I’m feelin’ the love just looking at the porch. 🙂

    Ouch! that thumb.


  2. I can see your porch smiling the sweet smile of “she finished me!”

  3. Personally, I feel that painting the new gate should have been on the list to begin with! It’s about time. It looks great….just imagine it w/ the Christmas lights 🙂

  4. I’m so jealous of your front porch.

  5. your so funny mrs. robin!!! love love,candycane…. 🙂
