House Update

Hi everyone. I thought I'd give you an update on the mess our house is in. Mom is kind of grumpy about it because it's really screwing up her morning routine. First I'll show you a cute picture of me just hanging out watching tv. It was kind of hard though since Mom was standing in front of it trying to take my picture.

Next is also a picture of me. The back bedroom is finished. Want to see the color of the trim?

Yes, it's white and so is my shoulder and the tip of my tail. The room was painted a week ago tomorrow and Mom and I still have paint on us. It was a different kind of paint that Dad had used on something else and it doesn't wash off very well like the normal paint does. Nice huh? Dad says I really am skunk tail since the paint is bright white. Personally, I don't see the humor in it. Mom tried to get a picture of all the paint on my tail, but I only stood still long enough for her to get a close up of my shoulder.
Now to tell you why Mom's morning routine is so screwed up. They started with the bathroom a couple weeks ago and got frustrated with it and so it's slowly getting done now. the mirror hasn't been in the bathroom all that time which means Mom puts her make-up on and does her hair in the bedroom which isn't as bright as the bathroom. Two nights ago Dad got really working on the bathroom. Here's a picture of what it looks like now. Can you see what's missing besides the cool shower curtain, paint, the good bathmat and Mom's stuff? It's something important missing.

If you guessed the sink, you're right!! Mom is now brushing her teeth in the kitchen sink. She is really not happy about it at all. Dad says it will hopefully go back in tonight. This is what the sink looks like right now in the back bedroom.

That's the update so far. Mom and Dad are hoping to finish the inside this weekend and then next weekend the rock should be here to do the yard. Hopefully we'll get to start looking for our new house soon.

Hi Lady Kaos

Hope your Dad gets the bathroom finished so your Mum does not have to clean her teeth in the kitchen for too much longer.

Was lovely to chat to you at the DWB party, we are going to add you to our favourites list.

I hate to be the one to tell you this, but your sink is broken. It is laying dead on the floor. (only kidding). Tell Dad to get busy so you can get that yard.

hehehehe We think what Moco said was so funny! It does look like the sink is broken and out of commission! We hope your mom's sink gets put back together soon so her life can somewhat get back to normal!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

My Mom would not be happy if our house was like that either. When Mom is not happy we don't get snacks, that is a bad thing. Cool paint, you could be trying to look like a Boston Terrier!

Mom just has to give it some time. Our Mom and Dad are always working on the house. They have finished the upstairs with wood floors and the 2 bathrooms. Now they started downstairs. It is slow going. Mom says our world revolves around us. We do not see a problem with that..

Big Sloppy Kisses

That paint just makes you more beautiful. I hope everything gets put back together soon. You poor thing having to put up with all that but it makes it all worth it if you get a big yard in the new house. Oh and can you email me your address I want to send you something.

Hi, Kaos!
You look like a puppy in that first picture!
I can see the hard work goes and goes! I am sure your mom will be happy when everything goes back to the bathroom!
Kisses and hugs

You'll need to take us on a tour, Kaos, when the house is all done so we can see how beautiful it is.

I can't believe your dad would call you a skunk! I think Joey is right; you look more like a boston terrier!
