Friends,  I have been absent for about a week or so now.  You have just experienced how I roll.  ADHD....hyperfocus.  I have been consumed with staining my intricate deck that was dry beyond believe and spray painting my patio furniture red.  Oh, yes....and the birds.  Wait till you hear this one (another day).  I can assure you, however, that I was talking to ya'll (see how TEXAS I am now) in my mind as I was working.

Here is an important beauty tip I discovered this morning.  NEVER TRIM YOUR BANGS WITH WET MASCARA ON YOUR EYELASHES.  If you are unable to ascertain the importance of this, just imagine little tiny hair trimmings stuck to your eyelashes for the next two hours.  Doesn't this smack of a Pinterest post?  Perhaps I should think about that.  Top 10 personal hygiene FAILS.  (I had to double check my spelling on "hygiene.")  

I live and die by Google and Pinterest.  Not that I ever put anything on Pinterest, but I can find the answer to almost anything there.  Also, YouTube.  I forgot to mention that I taught myself how to wire up my home theater through the ceiling, walls, and attic this week.  And I actually DID it.  Sort of.  Again, my poor patient husband climbed up into the 'attic' with long sleeves, long pants, a mask and assorted tools in order to manage the ceiling part of the job.  He did this not once, not twice, but so many times I can't count.  Coughing from the fiberglass fragments, sweating like a sweat lodge participant.  I know he was cursing me under his breath, but I never heard a word.

I say 'sort of,' because we lost a wire in the wall and have now been messing around with that problem for three days. It was my fault because I pulled too hard on the feeder wire and broke it.  I know dear husband is now out of the game, but I think I have convinced my dear brother-in-law to participate.

I'm safe.  I haven't use mascara since I graduated college and was told by my wife that I couldn't dress Goth anymore.  ::pouty face::

P.S.  Did you hubby look like this when he was done crawling through the pink fiberglass insulation?

I just spent 10 minutes convincing a really big fly to go to the back door so I could let it out. It came in from the garage.

Phyllis has a good point.

The next time I'm tempted to trim my bangs with wet mascara, I'll remember that. Or trim my beard in front of a fan with wet mascara.

Safe Bet's Amy!  My post seemed so disjointed, but you put it all together!  Me covered in hair trimmings and hubby covered in fiberglass shards.  I just KNEW there had to be a theme in there somewhere.  Thank you!

Yes, Phyllis, good point.  

koshersalaami, yours might be trimming your beard after you have oiled up your body for a body building competition.

The mascara is about as likely.

Translated because I might as well preempt the inevitable:

Both are wildly improbable (as opposed the both being within the realm of my normal)

i don't do macho

I just read  koshersalaami's "i don't do macho" comment.

Not sure why, but this immediately popped into my mind...  (he does look fetching in that leotard, though)
