Reckon Ken ever tried patching two holes behind Barbie's gas range where long gone venting once was and ended up completely demolishing her kitchen? Now by completely demolishing I mean no stove for Barbie to cook on, no sink for Barbie to wash dishes in, and no cabinets for Barbie to put her kitchen accouterments in. Picture Barbie's hands in the air, her hair frazzled, her teacher Barbie glasses askew and covered in renovation dust. I look like that.
I'm too tired now to explain how this situation occurred during the first weekend since school got out. I was scraping old wallpaper adhesive from the walls and painting my color board with the tiniest ever sponge brush until 1 am. Oh, I forgot to mention house guests arrive in less than 10 days.
To clarify, I find no similarity between Barbie and myself. She has always had it too easy. Young girls need more realistic role playing to prepare them for life.
The Thurman family farmhouse that is now home to its' 5th generation is truly our dream house. Unexpected kitchen demolition renovation and all. This farmhouse existed without a gas range and running water before. I'm all for historical preservation but that particular situation should be rectified over the next couple of days. Did I mention we found original 19th century bead-board walls in the kitchen? Now that's better than any prefab dream house!
