Happy Hour Friday


It's Happy Hour Friday once again and I'm not even late! Woohoo! That's enough to make you happy, isn't it? But just wait, there's so much more.

I'm happy that good ol' slasher Norm is redoing our basement. We have some seriously ugly old blue berber down there and he is replacing it with other things. The "main" part of the basement, or tv room, (or man-cave, whatever) is mahogany hard wood. There is also kind of a foyer area that is black and white check tile, and then the rest of the basement will be black tile (we were going to do the check throughout, but it was kinda busy). I'd like to have the mahogany throughout, but it's kinda pricey, and it is just a basement afterall. So, right now it's a disaster down there and we can't even go down there to watch tv, but hopefully it'll be done soon.



I'm happy that one of those rooms down there will be my new craft room! Yippee! I am so excited (can you tell? I'm like bursting with energy over here. No, wait. I just have to pee). Okay, yes, I am excited. But I can't figure out what color to paint it. So far the suggested colors have been orange, blue, and turquoise (with hints of purple?). What are your thoughts? What colors are supposed to inspire creativity? It can't be too dark. It's a basement room with not-enough lighting (I'll be buying a couple floor lamps tho I think) and it'll have a dark tile floor. There's a window, but it's northerly facing and has a deck above it and woods behind it, so basically no natural light.  I need help!

I'm happy that it's only 35 days until I cruise with husband to the Mexican Riviera. Of course, this is his make-up gift for not letting me go to BC3 in Denmark. It has been suggested that the reason he won't let me go to any BCs is that he's being too parental (not parenteral, that would mean that he's feeding me through other means than the intestines, like a vein or something -- fyi). I would like to believe that he'd just rather spend a week on the ocean alone with me. Unfortunately I think the first supposition is the correct one. He wont let me go overseas to meet my new internet friends because he thinks I'll get axed. That kinda makes me not too happy, but I do get a week's cruise out of it so I guess I'll just hold on to that anger for our next fight. THEN I'll bring it up and he can suffer the consequences... right? On the other hand... we don't fight very much. I might forget about it. Grrr. The perils of a happy marriage. Dang it.

Umm, I'm sure I have more to be happy about, but I actually have a load of work to do. Our Habitat chapter is about to start choosing not one but two new families. As chair of the family selection committee that means that I have a poop-load to do before the families can be chosen. Yikes. So, I need to get busy with time-lines and applications and presentations etc etc blah blah blah.

That's it for me folks! Link up and play HHF with me. And don't forget to go see poor old Otie even tho I don't think he's joining us this week...

All right damn it all to hell. Mr Linky isn't working. If you want to play just leave me a note in your comments and I'll hook you up later.

No. Nonono. Let's soothe that wild hair and try this one from Simply Linked. Let me know what you think...

I can't top that comment!

otin said...

okay? how is this link thing working??

Matty said...

Been there and done that with interior re-do's. Patience is a virtue though, and the end result will be worth the wait.

Lucky you going out on the high seas. Take sunblock and RELAX.

Mango Girl said...

Ok. No comments on Otin. Though I would have come here anyhow.

Let's see...what color to paint your room ~ you're asking us for suggestions???? What colors make YOU happy??? That is the answer. Forget what they say about "this color will inspire you..." IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU!!!

Cruise? Fabulous!!!

xo, Mango

Ooooh white for the basement crafty niceness if it's dark. Any colours will drive you insane after a while. Paint it white and add colour with all the crafty lovlieness you make/

Really does MrBambi think you'll get slashed at Blog Camp?! Um, but there have now been 4 'overseas' blog camps and no slashing has been done. Indeed we are so slash avoiding that we're planning Blog Camp 3.5 at the beginning of March. Axes to the ready gals....;-)

Gillian said...

Was sent by Otin....patience is certainly not my virtue.

Doc said...

You KNOW I am always in for happy hour!!

Tracie said...

How about a light sage green for your craft room? My upstairs is painted that color and it goes with everything.

Brian Miller said...

McGillicutty said...

Barb said...

Doc said...

Oh, I am sorry I figured it out... Yes I like to particitpate but I can't have a happy hour post up because I promised a friend he could guest blog today. I should not have linked. I am very sorry. Please remove my link if you can.

I think this is the best mode of happy for you yet! Well, except for the hubby being paternal, but then again, you get to go on a CRUISE. I'm a bit jealous of that happy part. ;)

I forgot the reason I didn't add Happy Hour Friday to my Friday Fragment post this week was because I was going to utilize and link up my Spin Cycle Happy from yesterday...I forgot!!! I'm a blonde, you know. ;)

otin said...

Is it going to be a craft room or a carafe room lol!

Mango Girl said...

Come spend a day with me...I will help you pick out colors...

xo, Mango

Boomka said...

Ya know I am a stickler for being on time. And when it comes to cheaper alcohol... man I tell you my friends are never late! And the thing about the Mexican Riviera is that I think its always happy hour there! In fact, I think its always happy hour in Mexico, always. All the time! So that will be a JOY for you.

julochka said...

interesting that we've had four european BCs and not a single person has been axed. perhaps your husband is actually protecting us from you, did you consider that?

and as for them being safe in the US (e.g. Georgia), have you SEEN deliverance?

The basement sounds cool - looking forward to seeing the finished pictures...

Amanda said...

You've got a lot of great stuff going on!

YAY YOU!

Eidothia said...

Jeeez! So much of happiness? Ewwww.... I think I am having a stomach ache :P

Sounds like you've got a lot going on! Patience is definitely not one of my virtues.
