Good To Know

While in the process of turning our new house into a home, I am learning lots of random things. The first thing I am learning is that I could have my own home improvement show. It would be more like Tool Time from the show Home Improvement, but hey, it's a show! Today I wanted to finish up the master bathroom by caulking around the tub and such. I know what caulk is, I know what a caulk gun is, I know that you have to spread it, I know that you have to put a nail in it when you are done so it won't dry out.... so somethings I know. I mentioned that I know what a caulk gun is, but I failed to mention that I didn't know how to exactly use it. I mean, generally, I knew what I was doing. But there were a few vital facts I was no so clear on before starting the job. Charlie has some what explained it to me, but I am a hands on learner. Lets look at what happened.

Okay, so when I was done.... the gun wasn't. So there was some.... well excess..... I was unaware that I had to squeeze the lock and pull the trigger back out. I will spare you (and myself) the rest of the embarrassing details of my mishap. Good news though, the caulk is done and looks amazing..... well, it looks great..... okay, good, it looks good..... fine it just looks presentable! Good thing presentable was what I was going for. Just wait until I bring you the latest news on how the popcorn removal is going from the future playroom. Oh, it's a hoot I tell you.... a HOOT!

Ohmygosh! Can I tell you how happy I am to NOT be in your shoes right now? I despise caulk, and I continually screw it up. Have fun honey!

I am also happy not be in your shoes. At what one time I wanted a fixer uper this days a fixer means paining, and new flooring.

Oh no! You know I think I know all that stuff too but have never used one so would probably make the same mistake.
