Hi guys, it’s time for another handy dandy tutorial based on my life and being shared to enhance yours!

1.  The day before your son leaves for a week in Florida, he should make sure you know that his shower head leaks and he flooded the bathroom.  You get bonus points if this happens on the same weekend that you are replacing a fence with your neighbor on Friday, and then have a 12 hour fundraiser for his Cheer team on Saturday, with a 5:30 am flight on Sunday.

I think there should be additional bonus points if he uses Every Single Towel to clean it up.

2. Gather your supplies.  A quick trip to your favorite Big Box Store should hook you up! And fortunately, replacing a shower head is super simple! You can do this!

3. After removing the broken shower head, you should check the piping to make sure there isn’t anything stuck in the pipe or any obstructions.

That.  That is what they want me to stick my fingers in to make sure there aren’t any obstructions? No.  Not Happening.  That black hole of death is not eating my finger today.

I took my chances and skipped this step.  We’ll just pretend the instructions say “optional”.

4.  Practice your mantra: Righty-tighty lefty-loosey.

5.  No, your other right.

Ahem, I mean, of course it worked, it was so easy!

10.  Send a picture to your son that you’ve replaced his broken shower head, cause, hello, you’re a Super Mom!

Wait.

Wait.

Wait some more.

Determine that he’s never allowed to go on vacation without you again if he can’t at least answer a text!!

Move on with your life anyway.

11.  Hear a loud thump from the bathroom shower faucet.

For the record, the loud bump was the shower caddy sliding forward off the pipe, a quick readjustment fixed that.  🙂

Letter to Your Teenage Self

My sister sent a group text:

If you could write a letter to your teenage self and only use 5 words – what would you say?

Mr. T answered almost right away “Boy you are cra cra”

My dad responded with “Evaluate Actions support Values Daily”

By now I had my response prepared “Their opinion does not matter”

Then my niece chimed in “Be yourself all the time”

And my sister, who started it all finished it with “You’re stronger than these trials”.

It was an exercise surprisingly more fun than I expected! And I loved reading the responses from the rest of the family!

In other news, I have my great grand-parents antique high boy dresser (I forgot to take a picture before I started sanding!).

This lived in their garage, so it’s not in good shape. But it’s got great character!

And I’m sure it was my sister that graffitied the inside!

The dresser is all sanded down and my original plan was to stain and seal it, since it’s missing one knob, I can’t restore it and since it is just going to live in my guest room, it doesn’t have to be a show piece.

Come to find out, it’s good news that I can’t restore it, and that it doesn’t need to be a show piece because when I sanded down the top I discovered an oil stain… Not stain so much as an oil slick! I sanded off the stain and varnish; however, the oil did seep into the wood and now I’m afraid it won’t take a stain properly.

Which means, I’m turning to y’all for help! Do I attempt to stain it? Do I break a cardinal rule and paint it? Do I paint it AND possibly go get an old gigantic map and mod podge the map on the drawers?!?
