Office renovation

Ever since we bought a mid century modern ranch built in 1951 two years ago, I've been itching to refurbish it to its original glory. That, my friends, is going to be a huge task because the former owners painted almost everything white before they sold the house.

Much to my husband's dismay, a few weeks ago I pulled up the carpet to find beautiful 9x9 asphalt tiles in a gorgeous red, perfect condition and best of all, sealed! (if you didn't know, those tiles contain asbestos that can be harmful if they get crushed and it gets into the air.) After using a biodegradable adhesive remover on the leftover carpet glue and a good mopping, I made a trip to the paint store for porch paint in 'tile red,' a near perfect match to the original tile floors. A few area rugs later and I'm thrilled with the result. With paint, rugs and paint brushes/roller/tray, I was able to redo the office for less than $200. Winning!

Words Falling Out

Poetry has been filling my mind all of the time as of late, and I'm not sure how to feel about it but I think it's good...

I'm a little broken, but I've got scotch tape, so it's gonna be alright.

THPM takes Vape Blast

A few of the girls and I shared a booth with Denton County Vapers Club at Vape Blast in Fort Worth last weekend and it was, indeed, a blast! We raised almost $800 for Bikers Against Child Abuse by selling shirts, calendars and stickers. We're considering going to the one in San Antonio so the members there get a chance to socialize with our peeps and raise money for a good cause.
