Fix This Mess

Fix This Mess

The husband and I are in the middle of fixing up our house. We purchased with the belief that it only needed cosmetic repairs – taking down the old wallpaper and wood paneling, replacing switch and outlet covers, fresh coat of paint, etc. 3 years later, we’re elbow-deep in a complete overhaul, our latest project being new floors and ceiling for the family & rec room.

A close RL friend and I decided to document our amusing and painful home restoration experiences. (It’s too comical, horrible, and awkward not too.) Please pardon the shameless self-promotion but if you’re so inclined, you can read more about our home woes here.

Guardian

Guardian

I was chosen from a young age and set on the patch of a warrior. Some become healers, others priests, but, I, I am a guardian. One of only twenty chosen from among our vast people.

Guardians are always watching, waiting, always vigilant. Tasked with protecting our most sacred place – the temple our ancestors built to the gods.

And so I will remain, until I am relieved of my duties due to age or death. This is my calling. This is my life.

Failure to Launch

“How in the Seven Seas do you get this thing to go?!”

Trying to smother her laughter, she called back down. “You just pull on the reins and point it in the direction you want to go.”

A frustrated sigh left her lips, “This is ridiculous! Why can’t we just swim to where we want to go? We have perfectly good fins and there’s really no need for these fish.”

“Oh but this is so much more FUN!” Laughing at her friends frustration she called back, “If I can figure this out, you certianly can!”

“He seems much more interested in doing his own thing as opposed to going where I would like.”

Perhaps they would have to save their adventure for another day….
