Ok people, I think it's official.
I am going CRAZY!
Well, I might have been that way before now, but now it's bad!
I am addicted to this Chalk paint!
ADDICTED I tell ya!
So much so, my house and my to do list is getting very neglected.
My only saving grace is that it gets wayy too hot here to paint after 11.
I can't wait to show you my newest projects!
Here is a little story to keep you entertained until I decide to put the flipping brush down!
(that is the worst part about this paint, the lazy painter has to brush it on instead of spraying..so worth it though)
I have an 11 yr. old daughter. I love her dearly.
Even when she knows everything, and even when she rolls her eyes at m,e and even when she tries to tell me that that I don't know what 8 times 4 is.
She went to a birthday party on Saturday. One of the crafts that they did was tie dye.
Please, don't ever do this.
Or, if you do decide to do this, please set the color in the shirt before you send it home!
Do you see where I am going with this?
She really, really, really wanted to wear it today.
I told her that she would have to wait until all of my laundry was done before it could go in the washer.
So, last night when I was covered in paint and she should have been in bed, she came out and told me that she had just put her shirt in the washer.
I thought about this for a minute and then panicked.
"Did you put soap in with it?"
Go and take it out and finish the wash cycle. I will be in to deal with the shirt later."
Well, my lovely 11 yr. old who knows everything didn't listen to the entire sentence.
Only to the words," take it out," and then she added, in "put a load of whites in the washer."
I tried to be as calm as possible when she came out and told what she had done.
I was covered in paint and said I would be right there.
In the meantime, "go and stop the washer and pull the whites out."
By the time I got in the house-a whole 3 minutes later. My entire load of whites was purple. My carpet was also purple because she had pulled the whites out and left the purple died water mess on the carpet, instead of on the tile.
Now, I realize that part of this fiasco was my fault.
That is why I am sharing this little incident with all of you.
Don't do what I did.
But, if you already have an 11 yr. old know it all-learn from my mistake.
On a bright note, I didn't kill her and she only rolled her eyes once at me this morning.
