A Force to be Reckoned With


Last Thursday a wave of crazy washed over me, and I wanted to do something exciting and different and new. So ...I knocked down a wall.
It was a half wall separating our kitchen and dinning room. I've wanted to do it for a long time, and Thursday was the day.
The kids watched me and Brooklyn kept saying "Put the wall back, put the wall back please!"

Sorry Brooklyn- that wall is never going to be back, but you can still look at it, for now it is a pile of trash in our yard waiting to be taken to the dump.

It was exhilarating doing something that awesome- I highly suggest to anyone out there whose wanted to take down a wall, TO DO IT. (whether that be literally or figuratively.) You'll feel like a force to be reckoned with.

Of course it only took 30 minutes to take it down, and 2 days to fix the hole in the floor, paint and lay tile. But whose thinking about that when the crazy waves come!

Also, one place you don't want to put your phone:

A flushing toilet. Cause you can pretty much kiss it goodbye.

Cause the flushing waters of a toilet are definitely a force to be reckoned with.

Oh, I am going to be so careful with my cell phone when going to the bathroom. Taking that wall out will really open up the house.

Man, you are the most energetic human being in the universe. Glad it was not a baring wall. HK & I just finished "Mockinbird" at the Hale - going to see Audra MacDonald and Will Swenson in "101" tonight - an old student of HK's forked over the $149 per ticket fund raising price. Lucky us, eh??? No cell phones down the toilet for us - we only have one ancient CP our son gave us for emergencies & we barely use it... Maybe you should be a cartoonist too. Something to think about. Hallmark needs you???? xoxoxo HK & Karen (PS: I haven't blogged for months - or hasit been years???)
