Turns out you are supposed to mix the stain. Mix it. How the heck was I supposed to know that. Oh, its on the instructions? I only read the first two lines then I gave them to Ben to read. Its not my fault he thought I said read the paper on the top that I also handed him.
Our beautiful Crate and Barrel kitchen table is now an ugly shade of black and the leaves are a beautiful cherry color. Espresso stain my butt. (sorry, mom)
^^(Just in case you thought life around here was any shade of perfect – like I do half the time.) I’m hoping those homemade Oreos I made (thanks to instagram inspiration from this lovely lady) will make up for it. Or maybe an episode of West Wing, but I do think Ben is rather sick of that show by now.
To report back on yesterday’s ‘choosing HAPPY’ goal – I managed to indeed wake up in time to make it to morning aerobics and turn into one very sweaty beast. I got dressed wearing a favorite blouse, but while getting ready I did cave and put on an episode of West Wing (you can now see why Ben hates it, every time we sit down to watch it he’s missed another few episodes). I did make good progress on my political philosophy course but did not eat lunch downtown, or even go downtown for that matter. I also got a lovely comment asking what in the world I do with my life that gives me the freedom to make a morning exercise class and try somewhere new for lunch.
full time jobs who exercise before work and take their lunch
breaks at cafes near the office, I just don’t happen to be one of them.
