I'm home from Nocona.  We worked 10+ hours a day since Wednesday, and we are FINALLY done!  56 cabinets and drawers are painted and stained.  I will post photos tomorrow, but now, I'm just too darn tired.

I have been so tired during this process that I have become delirious on two different occasions, which were pretty funny, so I'll share:

(1) I finally put my pj's on a few nights ago and went into the bathroom to brush my teeth (which I had been so tired that I had forgotten to do that the night before-yuck!), and when I looked into the mirror, I noticed that not only was my shirt on backwards, but it was inside out and backwards!  Folks that's not just screwed up one way, but two ways!  I laughed until I cried at that point.

(2) My Dad and I were putting the cabinet doors back on last night.  I was moving my gladware container of screws from one spot to another when, for whatever reason, I jostled them and about 15 screws flew up into the air (in slow motion by the way) and all over the floor.  My Dad looked at me and said, "well that isn't the way I'd have done that" and all I could think was A Christmas Story.  You know where Ralphie is helping his Dad change the tire and accidentally sends all the lugnuts flying into the air.  It was totally like that!  So I'm thinking of that and I start laughing, but one of those laughs that won't really even come out, and I was laughing so hard I was crying.  My Dad thought I was crazy (I think he said, "what the hell is wrong with you?"), but I was just so tired I was delirious.

Hope y'all have had a great start to 2011!
