Self Improvement

Nothing is ever like they show in the movies. Not the wardrobes. The money. Not even the sex.

The same is true for television.

It takes an ENTIRE TEAM of skilled professionals to con us shmucks into thinking this is real life or that we could pull it off.


It's a word. Look it up. It's making a comeback after Husband noted this morning that home insane.. errrr improvement... projects directly correlate with the expletives in my vocabulary. Painting laundry room shelves  has been rated a giant pain in the ass.


Pshaw!!!!! on HGTV!! 

How many rug rats do you see running around in Tinkerbell panties? They commercial during the umpteen-jlilion breaks to refill empty bowls with peaches so they'll stay out of the paint cans. You never see Candice Olson precariously perched between a ladder and the washer to reach above the shelves when you should have painted the entire damn wall in the first place. As in, BEFORE THE SHELVES went up!!!

Give me another 24 hours. That's real life for ya. 5 days in real life is equal to 24 hours in la-la land. But don't think I'm judging, I'm not. I'd love to visit la-la land. I hear it's nice this time of year. And someone paints the shelves for you!
