I'm About To Loose Control And I Think I Like It!

Have you ever been listening to someone tell you a story and it just keeps going on and on?  You politely listen / make your grocery list in your head.  Once in a while you nod, laugh or smile.  And then when they finally get to the end of the story you think...Wow!  They could have told that entire 10 minute long story in one sentence.  Well, this is going to be one of those stories so hang on to your seats people cause it is going to get crazy (actually it really isn't and if you are busy doing 10 other more important things just skip to the end and see why I am so excited.)

Let's start this story with one important fact - my husband is a wonderful man!  He really puts up with so much crazy and doesn't ever make a peep.   And this weekend was no exception.  Yesterday around lunch time I was getting ready to go to work and my husband mentioned that he may take my daughter to Home Depot that afternoon to pick up one last thing we needed to finish up the wainscoting in our bathroom.  And I immediately pounced...what, a trip to Home Depot, let me add a few things to your list!  On that list included a piece of plywood, cut to specific size for a project I am working on (more on that later).

So we went our separate ways, me to work and him and my daughter to the Depot.  When I got home a couple hours later I was surprised to see they weren't home.  Yes, everything takes longer with a 2 year old but it was getting close to her bedtime so I figured something must have happened.  Only moments later my phone rang.

Me: Hello
Hubby: Hey Babe, small problem
Me: What's up?
Hubby: The wood wont fit
Me: Wont fit?
Hubby: I'm stuck in the Home Depot parking lot because the wood wont fit in the car with the car seat
side note: my friends were picking me up in one hour for a girls night out which I was not going to miss.
Me: Crap.  On my way.

So I rushed to Home Depot, about 20 minutes away.  We switched the car seat to the small car, wrestled the wood into the trunk and sped home all the while I was in my cute going out with the girls outfit.  But I made it home just in time to put on a little makeup and sneak away for great, and well deserved, night out.

OK so at this point you are all wondering why I am still telling and you are still reading this story.  I am still telling this story because my husband is a wonderful man and there is one surprise still left and you are still reading because you are way to nice and enjoying procrastinating what you really should be doing.

The surprise?  The surprise is that in addition to buying all the things on my shopping list, chasing a 2 year old around Home Depot, and getting marooned in the parking lot my husband bought me this...

A DREMEL!  And these...

DREMEL ACCESSORIES!  OMG I have wanted one for so long!  I dream of all the cutting, sanding, shaping I could do if I only had one.  And now I DO!  There are so many possibilities I don't even know where to begin.  Should I carve a cutting board, sculpt a wooden duck, sharpen an ax, polish some hinges?  The possibilities are endless.  Thank you wonderful husband, thank you!
