We (ok, I) interrupt your regularly scheduled blog reading for this very important ad:
New kitchen linoleum: (Yes, I do realize linoleum is white trash tile, but please note that it is simply a temporary fix. We're planning on gutting the entire kitchen and dining room when that damn money tree finally sprouts.)--$700
New master bedroom carpeting: $1,000
Yesterday's installation for both of the above: $900
Hearing a horrendous, glass-shattering CRASH from above as you're down in the basement office
reading blogs cleaning while the installers are cleaning up and moving the appliances back into the kitchen: $____??? (Can you put a price on a heart attack?)
Yep, that's how the stove looks now, all broken and non-functional taking up space on my new kitchen floor. Please note that we're going to be painting the walls Somerville Red by Benjamin Moore. And I'm getting black wrought iron knobs to spruce up the cheap, apartment-y cabinets.
Replacement glass for stove: approximately $200
Screw that, how about a brand new stove?: Anywhere from $400 to $2,000 (For a stove? Shit, will it prepare and then cook the meal for me?)
Being #3 on the Top Momma Hall of Fame: $___?? (What's the going rate for shameless narcissism?)
Reading such kind words about yourself on a
fellow blogger's friend's blog (because I believe we'd definitely be friends if we lived close to each other; plus her daughter may be a potential bride for one of my boyz someday--the little gal is already on her 2nd Red Sox cap!): $___??? (How do you put a price on someone making your day with such kinship?)
And finally, sharing 8 years of wedded bliss [snort] with the man of my dreams, the one who was and always will be "my type", the one who "completes me", the one who seemingly knows me better than I know myself, the doting, loving and involved father of my 3 precious and remarkable boyz: PRICELESS
Oh yeah, and one more thing--an overnight in Boston this weekend to celebrate 8th anniversary: FREE! Because sometimes it pays to be a bee-yotch.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog reading.
