Mostly we just have skunks.
|Hey buddy! NO THANK YOU.|
OH MY GOD THE MOTHER FUCKING SKUNKS.
Remember how I got so over our old house projects before that I never wanted to hear the word, "kitchen", again? Or garage. Or bathroom. Or porch. Or fireplace. Or bar.
Because of the all-consumingness of those projects? Because we were spending all of our waking hours discussing the ins and outs and details and plans for those projects? Those projects that were going to result in a remodeled kitchen, a garage with electricity, a bathroom without a time machine shower, a not-collapsing porch, a push button fireplace and an effing BAR?
OH TO BE SAYING, "BAR", OVER AND OVER RIGHT NOW INSTEAD OF, "SKUNKS".
And then to get a fabulous new BAR instead of...just not skunk smell.
Yeah. So, we're there with the skunks.
These sick bastards went to absolute town on our house one week before we moved in.
Sprayed the garage. Sprayed the guest house. Sprayed the deck.
|Our eyes are watering, but still - COCKTAILS ON THE DECK. MUST HAVE IT. NEED THOSE ONION GOGGLES. Also, please enjoy our ski fencing while the deck railing is finished.|
I'll just say that moving day was fragrant. Eye-wateringly so.
So yeah - all the glamorous fun projects like tearing out miles of heinous carpet, redoing a tragically tiled kitchen, setting up a media room or staking out my new garden has taken an abrupt backseat.
Because WHY DOES IT STILL SMELL SO BAD?
See...glamour. It's my life.
Thankfully, we now have A Skunk Guy.
We have traps set and they're baited with hard boiled eggs (I almost vomit a lot) and they're sitting out waiting to catch us the grand prize of a funking skunk.
That will probably spray again when The Skunk Guy comes to take him away.
At least we got the garbage disposal fixed on the home buyer's warranty!
Oh, not glamorous either.
Ceiling fan spins now?
OK, also boring.
New propane tank!
Snore, I know.
But the stairs! We had the hilarious contractor built us some awesome stairs! And they're pretty!
|You'll have to do.|
And he had his painter do the painting part and OH MY GOD LOOK A THE PAINTER GUY'S DOG:
|I'm sure you realize that I cuddle raped the absolute pants off of this dog.|
And then we've had some good looking sunsets.
|Nicely done, Country.|
|And twilight turkey hunting.|
And Jada's kinda in heaven.
Plus, we're managing.
|Beer is why country dog walks are superior to suburban dog walks.|
So fuck the glamour.
We have skunks, sunsets, stairs, turkeys, a happy dog and beer.
