I Beg You...DON'T FORGET ME!!!

OK, so who has forgotten all about me and my pathetic life? Oh don't act like life has just moved on for ya'll and you have problems of your own because it is all about me!!!

Well it is Friday the 13th and historically it is a GREAT day for me and it started out great. I watched Tremors last night, classic Kevin Bacon and slept in till 9:30 because WB stayed up late last night, then I got all bitter because Crash won't take me to see Jack Johnson and Shelle made me do the ugly cry which I thought was reserved for teaching Relief Society. I would do links to their lovely blogs and I would like to tell you I won't because of my aforementioned bitterness...but in reality I can't remember how. So there.

After the ICU stay for WB and before the bitterness, this is what I have been doing.

TADAAAAA!! How do you like the tricked out dresser I painted for McFly? And yes I did the rose swag on them and the roses on the side. Well I glued them on and painted them anyway.
Now because I have forgotten how to upload photos correctly, this post will be all over the place. I know that is surprising to you since you all think my life is in order...but I have news for you...
And this...
and of course my REAL life.
Well technically, it is my She Cave and I am redo it. I can't redo my life so I am redoing my house. It is called denial and yes I love me some Elvis and my new imac I got for Mother's Day. I had to beg and cry and withhold ...well you know. Just kidding...I would NEVER withhold THAT!!!
This is my new scrapbooking cabinet that I drove to SLC and got off of Mormon's Craig List. Just I love it!! It was a really cool orange, red, salmon, blah, blah but I painted it happy colors. Like a beach, but not.
This is another dresser I painted, bought it for $40 bucks! I love it but have no where to put it so it is sitting in my living room. By the way, the rest of my house does not look like my She Cave, I do clean...sometimes.
By the way I need a really cool antique mirror in that nekked spot.
Yes, I admit it, I love beat up old furniture. I LOVE antiques and have had them for years, but my BFF Texas, came down (she lives in Provo now and lets me slum at her house for the BYU games), and helped me change my living space...well maybe she did it while I ran back and forth to help WB. They had to take his pain pump out of his spine because it was infected so he is quite needy now and we (I mean HE) lives on Loratab and Valium. I wish it was WE!!
See my great lamp shade Texas made me for my B-Day?!! It is made out of my Grandmother's hankies.
Did I tell you that my cute little FIL is living with us now? Got rid of the stupid BIL after 4 yrs, just in time for Grandpa to move in. He is not well and can't be left alone.
Here is my buddy you see where I am going with this?!!!
Actually, my sweet grandbabies just moved back to Vegas so I will get to see them more often!
Baby Momma and He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named got divorced, but I got custody of her!
McFly and The Princess fight like cats and dogs or sisters...close call on which is worse! Sibling rivalry is new to me and I have a hard time dealing with it. Too much chaos in in our lives. But I am glad to have them near us and I LOVE Baby Momma's new boyfriend. He is good those babies so I don't have to worry about them...much. All Grammy's worry, right?

School is about to start and I can't wait for some semblance of a routine. That was a joke huh?
Well I will get back to cleaning the cave, crankin' the itunes, and ignoring my children. It is what I do best. And speaking of Princess...the other one...thanks for the card...I love you!!

P.S. I am not proofreading this so don't judge.

I love your old furniture! Yowza! You are amazing.
I love your scrap cabinet too. You'll have to take pictures of the inside so I can see your awesome treasures in there. I love the colors.

Cute little kiddos, looks like they had some fun swimming.

You got a Mac. I bow to your greatness. Glad you didn't have to withhold too long.

Love ya!

Missy said...

No one could forget you!
I love the dressers, I love it all!
You are an angel!

I've missed you, I was so happy to see this post.

I love the beach dresser. I want one.

Barbaloot said...

The beauty of google reader is that it makes sure I'll never forget you:)

Sounds like busy and hectic times. Love the "beach but not" colors on your dresser. I totally get how organizing/cleaning helps avoid other things that may or may not be more pressing.

Good luck with everything!

Jen said...

How is it that minutes after your post you have 4 comments already. I have a post up for weeks and nothing..ever. Sometimes 1 or 2 but not often. You suck. Well not really but i'll say it anyway

Kristina P. said...

Who the hell could forget you, no matter how hard I try? :)

Mormon's Craiglist. Haha. SO true. My coworker is addicted to KSL ads. He's on them like 25 hours a day.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

K... Who knew you were little miss do it yourself project-er!!! Besides the quilting of course!

Hey your she-cave looks like the rest of my house. Sad but true.

You seriously are too awesome for words and I just have to tell you that.

I'm not sure I could do it all that you do and keep your incredible personality that I love so much.

I'm coming down there in October for some bull riding! I'm coming to SEE YOU!

Macs are the best BTW

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

OH and sorry about the ugly cry video... but it's awesome. :)

Sherri said...

Wow...not only are you a great quilter, but you have some mad painting all the dressers! And what a great space you have to work in too...looks huge! Hope your Friday the 13th ended up great!

Lane said...

Hey, I could never forget you! I do miss my frequent pottie stops while working, but not missing the traffic in the triple digit heat. Mom went to church today!!! YAY! First time since April. First time in new chapel. Where
DO you find these amazing dressers? I can never find dressers. They are like an illusive creature to me. Or I find the cardboard walmart kind. I'm glad you are the only one in my family that reads my blog. I got really real this last time. Could catch me some hell. No blackmailing...although if you ever want a Red Mango say the word! Luv you Cuz!

Princess Danell said...

She lives...YEAH! Glad to see that I am not the only who lets stuff go to mess.
KSLcom hilarious!
Glad to hear you're getting your house (read: family) in order. You need to have great people around you. Speaking of...we are looking forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks! Yippee. Now, there is something to live for!

Dawn said...

You could never be forgotten!! Love the dressers and cabinets. I have a desk and two chairs in my garage waiting for me to paint or something...hubby just moves them from spot to spot...oh well! Happy Friday the 13th!!

Amy Joy said...

Melinda said...

You are unforgettable!! Miss you always, love it when you post!! Hugs and kisses from me, you're awesome!

Amber said...

I have not forgotten about you! Those dressers look awesome!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

HI Queenie! It's me, Crash!

Where to start? I lub me some queenie! And I lub your furniture even more. WOW! So cool, that scrapbooking cabinet.

I lub that you are all cluttery and unorganized too.

And I lub that your grandbabies have moved back to vegas!

Sorry about the JJ thing. You've got to donate some fabric, girl! Seriously. I bet you have a million cool stories.

Delena said...

I missed your posts. Glad you commented on mine and of course I had to check yours. I love old furniture too but hubby does not. My dad loves it so that must be what I inherited. The love of the old stuff.
My craft studio is one day away from being done. Stay tuned for pic.

Marilyn said...
