Yes, the annual Paint-A-Thon at the McFadden household. A special thanks to all those who helped out (though it was so much fun, I should be charging them).
John and Danielle made this their second annual Paint-Til-You Drop event, but this was baby Emelia’s first year in attendance. She was a great help…falling asleep in the middle of a hectic household.
Originally, I didn’t want Leslie to come…because she doesn’t own her own house…and I don’t like ‘renters’ but since she bought her house yesterday, I decided to let her help her come. It also helps her case that Addy is Paige’s best friend.
Kari’s friend Carrie (yes, I know) has made this her THIRD Paint-A-Thon. At one point, she was the only one painting. Good for her!
Also good news is that Paige and Cordy found their new day care lady. Her link is here . I think she’s perfect for the job.
Brian fit the job perfectly, spare rags and all. Though oddly, not a drop of paint on him at the end. Hmmm.
Special thanks to everyone…and we’ll see you next year.
Yes, I was writing that last post to me. But my name is really John with a webpage of teeterpod3.com. I just can’t spell my name correctly…
Of course, I went to gottalovepink.com and found nothing there. What fumes have you been sniffing?
Yes, I am opening a new daycare here in my house. I only charge $5,876 a day, per child, and I don’t do diapers or meals. Parents must come by the house every two hours to change their kids and make them a snack.
Please, no shoving, there are lots of spaces available!!
Wow, I love that you 2 have witty blog banter. Now what I don’t like is your multiple references to me as a “renter” while yes technically I am a “renter” I am taking steps to rectify that – and that my friend should not go unnoticed. For the record I hate cabbage, and I don’t have small hands I have delicate hands!
Did anyone else realize that in the last post Ryan is writing to himself? Is this weird, or should I just assume the last post was due to the inhalation of too many paint fumes??
Ryan, I will warn you right now check the backyard for a tent city. Out behind the garage, you may find this new “home” that Leslie “bought”. And the other “renters” may have started a neighbourhood back there Have you noticed any Hobo Sticks lying around in the yard? Do you live near a rail line?
John — they smell like cabbage only because they can’t afford to shop at a grocery store. Renters can usually be found in their natural habitat behind the grocery store in the dumpster.
They are also known for defecating on public stairs and drinking lighter fluid. I did not notice this smell on Leslie’s breath on Sunday. Even though she does not own a house yet, perhaps she is already trying to live the lifestyle of a home owner? I know I counted the silver after she left, and it appears that it’s all there…
Leslie, as for not thanking my wife…I was so beside myself that she actually did anything, that I was caught completely unawares. Sure, she puts on a good public show, but in actuality she comes around so infrequently that Paige can only recognize her from pictures. Cordy still wonders who the strange woman is. But I guess I should encourage the good behaviour and say thank you…
Ummm….just wondering where the acknowledgment for all my help is? You can pretty much count me out of next years paint-a thon. Nice, really nice. Blogs certainly let you know who appreciates your hard work. JERK!
Wow, not thanking your wife – that is cold man – COLD! Thanks for letting the “newbie” tag along and see how real home owners do things. On a serious note, the house looks amazing!
I was glad to finally to put use my years of breaking into my home because I forgot my key skills.
And renters are they the ones with small hands, and smell like cabbage?
I had no paint on me because I’m pro-feshunal! I did however smell of hamburgers (some partially cooked, some fully cooked), and of course a little bit of baby poop.
I didn’t tell you of the epic battle betwixt myself and the sowbugs in the basement. It was a harrowing affair, but I came up victorious!
Sowbugs. They are my nemesis.
Who the hell is this Ryan chick?
