Hiring A Builder
It's 11:11 on Christmas Eve night. Jeff is racing against the clock to get the dollhouse built. So far... We've found a broken piece. And it's an important one. And we will have to replace it but he thinks he figured a way to at least temporarily have it together. It involved a trip to the 24 hour Walgreens about 20 minutes away from here. As I was holding the staircase in place, I noticed that the painted on light fixture on the back wall of the living room was on the floor. Huh? Yup. Wall is upside down. They put these little arrow stickers on the back of the panel to guide you on which way it goes in. The arrow was wrong. Jeff has been rather... frustrated. He's not so fun to be around when he's frustrated. He tends to get a little angry with himself and gets a little verbal and... he reigns it in as best he can. But this thing is definitely more difficult than it first appeared. So we will be ringing in Christmas morning in about 45 minutes. All the gifts are ready for tomorrow- save for the star attraction, the main event. But we'll get there. And the dollhouse is way more impressive in person than it was in the pictures. I'm all dreamy about it and remembering the dollhouse I had... but that's a post for another day.
