Oh Clive… where are you when I need you?!?

August 11th, 2007

If only I had Clive Pearse on hand at our house that we’re selling! It would have been so much easier, not to mention we’d have an offer by now. Sigh. Panic setting in. And now we’re working on the new house, giving our kitchen a makeover and remodel. Paint and sawdust has become an everyday part of my life. I have more t-shirts and shorts assigned as “painting clothes” then I do regular clothes. Sick. Sick. Sick.

hgtv.gifBUT SOME OF US score big and not only get someone else to pay for their redo… they get someone else to do it as well! One such person is my little brother Marco and my SIL Kihn. And if that’s not enough… they even get someone to design their redo! Take a Mexican/German and a Vietnamese/French and the end result is a vibrant Japanese dining room make-over! I’m pretty sure (but not positive) it’s Marco and Kihn’s episode on tonight at 11pm e/p on HGTV’s new show Get It Together. Be warned… lot’s of orange and red!!!! Sigh… back to my painting I go. The closest I’ll ever get to a HGTV redo is the picture of me hanging in Marco’s redo.

Edited in: @#$%!… it wasn’t Marco’s episode!

Hopefully I’ll be back to blogging soon. I miss you all so much and miss your blogs and visiting you!!! Thank you for all the nice emails and I hope to be able to answer them all soon! :-) <3

    Clive cracks me up! Sadly, just today we disconnected cable (um, there’s never anything good on when we want to watch!), so no more Clive over here. :-( Thinking happy thoughts for an offer on your house!!! Oh, and, hey, if all your clothes have paint on them, isn’t that a good reason to buy *new* clothes?

  7. The fabulous kathleen allegedly said:

    Wishing I had cable, I’m jealous of Marco already! Sending good vibes and wishes your way for a speedy offer on the old house, it’s a beautiful home, the yard alone would sell it for me! :)

  8. The fabulous blop allegedly said:

    How exciting for Marco and Kihn. You only say you want Clive…you know you would redo what he did so save yourself the hassle…you are doing a fab job and they wouldn’t do anything that would capture your spirit! Your rooms are looking wonderful and you are almost there!!! Hang in there!

  9. The fabulous cindy allegedly said:

    We miss you too, friend! BUT, I know you’re getting that new place up and ready for a big Blogapalooza party with all your bloggy pals, right?! Tee hee I can’t wait to see it next year. Hopefully by then you’ll have it close to the way you want it….HOPEFULLY. :) hugs chick and I hope you had a great Birthday! :)

  10. The fabulous Kelli allegedly said:

    So, I don’t have cable and don’t watch a lot of TV. That said, I have total confidence in your creativity and color. You make beautiful things — way better than anyone I’ve seen on TV. I can’t wait to see the before/after pics!

  11. The fabulous Connie W allegedly said:

    I’ve been missing your posts and will be happy to read your funny escapades once again. Take care, look after yourself!

  12. The fabulous Doe allegedly said:

    We have cable but Im too busy cruising blogland. he-he! Sweetie’s too busy watching the Dow go up and down. Nauseating! I’m lucky if I get a glimpse of Steve Colbert. Sorry if I missed the show. C’mon, GET IT TOGETHER already so you can get your life back. LOL! No pressure. Miss you mucho, HZ!

  13. The fabulous Jessica allegedly said:

    PS. Just wanted to give you a heads up, the Hello Kitty baggies are back at Target! (like you have time to drive all the way out here for Hello Kitty tee hee hee) This time she’s eating an apple and the bags are 2 sizes. Also, there are (or were when I was there) ice packs with her eating a Popsicle! Too cute. It’s all in the dollar section. :-)

  14. The fabulous Paula allegedly said:

    I’m so very jealous of Marco! and apparently to late in my blog reading to catch the show ~ dang! Hopefully re-runs!
    Did you get a St. Joseph yet? I’m feeling your stress…

  15. The fabulous Nan allegedly said:

    How wonderful to have you back for just a moment! I’m sorry you haven’t been able to sell your other house, and I also understand the mess and pain of remodeling. My heart goes out to you. It will all work out - when, who knows, but it most certainly will.
    I will keep an eye out for the show with your brother and SIL.
    Take care and come back to us soon, HZ!!

  16. The fabulous Angelina allegedly said:

    My fingers are crossed that your old house will sell soon. It’s such a stressful time.

    I am suddenly distracted by the fact that you have other blogs? I just noticed on the side bar…huh?

    Cheese Zombie? Food Zombie. Hello! I’m off to investigate!!

  20. The fabulous Angela (Cottage Magpie) allegedly said:

    How are you doing out there in moving land? I’ve been thinking of you! Our house is *still* not on the market and we still have *tons* of work to do. Sigh. But we did play hooky and go to IKEA. Twice. I have no excuse. But it was fabulous. If you come over to go, I want to come along! Anyway–hang in there! ~A :-)

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
