The front room is a little better, but you still can't really walk into it and there is a panini press on the antique entry table and random killing devices stewn about on the floor.
My parents will be here Saturday, so we's got to get a move on. Persnickity Mikity actually allowed me to stain and paint the back sides of the cabinet doors to expedite the process.
In other news, I was asked to write another Bible study. Yay! Will it make you judge me if I tell you that with the proceeds I plan to replace that icky stove pictured above that keeps burnin' my biscuits?
The study will be on a topic that I am not exactly good at--finding joy in the ups and down in life. But, then again, I've never been asked to write on any topic that I am particularly good at whatsoever. (They don't seem to want a study on "How to Offend People on Facebook" or "How to Be Totally Self-Interested" or "How to Be a Mediocre Wife." Go figure.)
In any case, it'll give me a good excuse to interview old wise women who do know something and give me some nice study direction now that we're about done with our summer Bible read through. (Here's my confession: I'm stalling out at Revelation. I just really don't feel like reading it right now. But I will.)
