Jumping The Couch

This is such a crazy, rush-rush time of the year for me that without lists I'd be running around like the proverbial chicken muttering "Which way do I go...Which way do I go?"!  So-o-o like Santa...I'm making my list and checking it once...or twice.

Christmas Open House at Winnie & Tulula's?


Thanks Margo for taking the photo. I never seem to have a camera ready when I need it!
New flooring in living room?

Thanks to my oldest melon-head...Check!

(I knew the 1349 hours I spent in labor delivering that 9 pound...most of it head...bundle of Joey would pay off someday!)


I just have to stop here and ask...

is it possible to be in love with a floor?

So much so...that if it weren't for Cat Daddy standing in the way...I'd marry it?

( it really bigamy if one of the parties in question is an laminate inanimate object?  Just checking!)

Y' was love at first click.  Forget the sound of reindeer hooves...give me the sound of lengths of laminate clicking together! to my ears.

Watching it slowly come together, changing my room from boring to boardilicious, was worth all the broken nails, ragged knuckles and blowing a knee out it cost me to get it ready.

Pshaw!  Who needs two knees anyways...although Mr. OMH might disagree.

(Did I mention how OCD he is when he's working?  Oy vey!)

I am so crazy for this floor...I hate to place anything on it...except me!

Y'all know how a dog will roll on his back on the grass.  You know...with the legs straight up in the air and wiggling all around?

That's me...RIGHT...NOW!

(Move over Tom Cruise and I'll show you how I do crazy!)

I'll get back to my check lists just as soon as I can find my way to make it up off this beautiful floor and regain my senses!

Don't wait up for me...this may take a while!

i will say... i have a mental picture of you rolling around on your beautiful new floors. LMBO!!!!!!!! poor melon head... he didn't realize that his daddy might get dumped for some snappy new floor...


"boardilicious" needs to be in the urban dictionary... i'm just sayin'.

Debra@CommonGround said...

It's gorgeous,Deb. I don't blame you for rolling on it at all!!! XOXO

Lou Cinda @ Tattered Hydrangeas said...

Sue said...

Love the floor and the color. I hope you don't have a white, long haired cat! I do, and it kind of takes away a little bit of all my lovin' for my dark wood floor!!

Take care, Sue

I think you should send out Holiday Greeting Cards with a picture of your floor in it inside of family, everybody sends pictures of family...but a floor, now we're TALKING!!!
Big Hugs,

Oh Joey, ya Mama loves ya. The floor is gorgeous, do remember to get off of it to go to your Open House.

Beth Leintz said...

Ahhhh I just got new flooring in my bedroom and I feel the same way- I love the sound of my dog's nails clicking on it. I hadn't thought about marrying my floor- but I'm going to look in to it.

Rebecca said...

Just gorgeous! And I can relate... that was me this summer when I got my new flooring in the studio... it sweeps so nicely compared to the cement floor I had!!! I love it. I still admire it after all these months... it must be a relationship that is going to last :)
Blessings today dear girl
