Everyone already knows what I am talking about.

Brown makeup

Black makeup

Fabric paint/glue

Yellow makeup?

French fries…

I have painted the basement, painted stairs, painted my bedroom, levelled a floor, but NOTHING strikes me with fear like the idea of salvaging the child’s room!

Maybe I can actually catch up with some of you today. But right now I have to get dressed before I scare the cleaning lady. Junior high gym shorts here I come.

Damn. I can’t work tumblr anymore.
