bits and bobs...

Ok, I know I said I was taking the day off but the meds are finally kicking in and my mind is working semi properly so I figured I'd give it a go. Total randomness this week so bear with me.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

First off, the reason I'm sick is because I'm a moron. I spent last week remodeling our bedroom and painted all day Friday. The paint fumes irritated my sinuses. The genius that I am then goes outside and cuts some lilac to bring into the house...They're my absolute favorite, but bringing allergens in on top of irritated sinuses = moron. I'm pretty sure it's not swine flu...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I totally wish that Hot Wheels came with built in GPS units. Squirt has found Number 1's collection and LOVES them. Thus, they are all over the house. Squirt's my cleaning buddy so the fact that I'm tripping all over these cars like the burglars in Home Alone is driving me crazy. I'm finding them in every room in the house. I know the case should be full to overflowing and the fact that there are only 8 cars in it tells me that I need to look a bit harder to find the rest.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was my turn to host our playdate this week and Shyguy, Squirt's buddy from across the street, is getting more awesome by the week. When they first started playing together he was really quiet and shy. In the few weeks/months that we've been playing his vocabulary took a major leap. He was talking up a storm for the first time that I've known him this week.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Since I love to brag here's my awesome bedroom handywork. I not only painted but built/upholstered a new bedframe and headboard.














-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's amazing how much crap I can come up with on a clear head. Now get on over to Dad-Blogs and see what all the other talented folks came up with this week.

Feel better soon. I love the bed you made.

Amazing work! Feel better soon (even if it is your fault. LOL).

Yeah, sweet digs!

See? You thought up a great new Hot Wheels marketing gimmick, helped bring a kid out of his shell, and redesigned your bedroom/bed, and blogged about it. All this while feeling like crap!

You're the man!

PJ Mullen said...

Hot Wheels with GPS. Those would be sweet. Mattel are you listening?

Colorado Dad said...

Looks great! I think all you have to do to find the rest of the cars is wait till about midnight, make sure all the lights are off and walk barefoot to get a glass of water. You're guaranteed to find at least one with the tender sole of your foot!

smartfathers said...

Damn! You're pretty handy. I need to learn to make us a new bed. Like I need ANOTHER project! :)

Otter Thomas said...

I will join everyone else by saying Hot Wheels with GPS is a great idea. At least they could have a locator base like cordless phones did when I still used cordless phones.

Mocha Dad said...

We need to contact Mattel immediately and have them install GPS systems in Hot Wheels. Sales would skyrocket.

john said...

dont sprain your ankle, if you step on those cars the wrong way, you can twist it...btdt.

love the bed, awesome job.

I should of sent my little guy over to help you since he just made one for himself. I probably should post his head board...lol.

I just had a mild sinus "piglet cold" myself. What a distracting mind suck. Nice work around the house! Time to mind meld with the Hot Wheels.

Those small toys are ruthless! There is always a straggler that made it into the next room- then whamo! Right under your foot. Good handy work BTW! -Jason
