So the caulking is done. Some of it is pretty, some of it looks like it was done by a five-year-old with motor skill issues. But it’s done. And after spending ninety minutes last night in an enclosed space with massive amounts of silicone, I can no longer claim that I’ve never gotten high.
I then scrubbed my hands raw with rubbing alcohol and nail polish remover trying to get the silicone off. I’m pretty sure if I held my hands within a foot of an open flame right now they would combust. I woke up with two new mosquito bites on my fingers and I swear I could hear tiny hiccupping noises.
But at least the kids are back at school, after the long weekend. This week is looking easy, and I’m very thankful for that (and since I make my own schedule, I’m giving myself a pat on the back as well). I’ve gotten so good lately at saying no to things that will not benefit me in any way that I’m no longer on the verge of a panic attack every time I see a computer.
So here’s to saying no – it feels great.
