Here they are...
Michelle and her buddy Mr Seven,
ready for their journey to Seven's home town in Holland.
Mr Seven is a funny name isn't it?
His name is actually Siete.
Michelle was just two years old when Seven moved in next door
and since Siete was too difficult for her to say, he told us to call him Seven.
Seven has been a part of my girls life since then..
he's been to almost every party, communion, Christmas dinner, graduation,
.. we've even asked him to be the girls legal guardian if something were to happen to Paul and I.
My girls love Seven as he does them,
and although we are not related by blood..
We are family!
I know my girl is in good hands.
And now that I have stopping worrying for just a bit..
It is time to start a project that I have been planning to do this week while Michelle was away.
See my kitchen counter tops?
want need new ones.
Pretty black speckled counter tops.
Unfortunately, new counter tops are not in the budget.
A few weeks ago I saw a commercial for
Rustoleum Counter top transformations
Have you guys seen it?
After watching the youtube tutorials over and over,
I knew that I had to try it!
This stuff is not cheap, retailing for $250.00 for (50 square feet)
it is still a lot less then new counter tops would cost.
I found mine on Ebay for $220.00 with free shipping.
Here is what I've done so far...
Now, I've got to wait 6 hours before sanding again.
Then it's time for the shiny top coat.
Thank you all for your kind peacefull words.
I have been a bundle of nerves all week.
Have a great night friends.
