It's DIY time again.
Papi will be in for his surgery on Friday.
o god, my heart just skipped a beat ...
After my love's uterus has suffered the art of Dr. Scissorhands, I will be taking care of mi esposo until Papi can care for himself.
So, while we're preparing, we did the obligatory massive shop at Costco, so mi esposo could carry heavy things that we may need.
ah for fucks sakes, we forgot kitty litter!!! aaaaarrrrrgh!!!
Furthermore, there's also a few things around the house that need to be taken care of before Papi is down for the 6 weeks.
One such thing? Putting up curtains.
It's crazy, but since the sewage flood, we haven't had curtains on our window.
Being no stranger to stalkers, ...
and a few restraining orders required to keep me safe ... yikes there's scary folks out there!
... I figure that because the coocoos have come out to play, it's time to put the curtains up. You never know, said scary folks may also be homicidal and feel the need to watch us before fighting their way past 6 animals to carry out instructions that the voices told them to do.
... nah ... me paranoid? i can't imagine why you'd think that!
Off we went to the cold room and found all the necessary tools: hammer, leveler, screws, chiprock anchors, and of course, the power drill.
Papi has been certified for medicinal cannabis for anxiety now, because my love has been getting panic attacks from fear of the surgery. Well, yesterday was my love's first attempt at getting friendly with the little drops.
It was probably not the best time to think about putting up curtains.
The last ones we put up, someone pulled them down while we were in the Dominican. I thought it was fine, because the curtains were crooked anyway. It would give us a chance to put them up properly.
I asked if I could help, and of course was granted a, "Yes!" but it didn't work out that way. I'm pretty sure the happy drops had something to do with the manner in which Papi went full bore into drilling without measuring.
Well, here's the first attempt:
"Nah, It's gonna be fine."
At this point, I decided to document the famous Papi DIY project with the full fledged Papirazzi, because it's just so entertaining for you all to feel my pain. Then I heard, "I thought we were going to do this together?"
"Yeah, so did I," I giggled with a reply, "but then you went all commando and started drilling without my help."
my what a big drill you have papi!
Next I heard, "Well I didn't mean for that to happen."
oh, you mean this?
Well, we have curtains.
And that concludes Papi's DIY for the day.
There will be more.
We still have 4 days.
oh my stomach ...
