My Granny (????) would have fondly called her “a little shit”:
My sweet and sometimes completely maddening pup, Charlie, has decided to assist my house in a two-front assault on my psyche. Every time I fix something, something else is going to break. And if the house isn’t doing a good enough job on its own, I guess Charlie is to help. Case in point:
What you’re looking at in that photo is part of my blinds (the set on the window nearest to my front door) that she somehow managed to snap off after a barking fit at a mail carrier (sheesh, way to be a cliché, Goof).
The broken blind is just one of the many things around here that show evidence of a dog-friendly home. In fact, all of my blinds tend to show her signature disheveled-ness.
This is why I can’t have nice things. Sigh.
Still, like most fur parents, I can’t stay mad at her for long. That face is just too damn cute. I guess I should be glad then, since I never got around to taking off the excess pieces of the hanging blinds from the bottom of the window… because now I have plenty of options to choose from to replace the broken one. I also need to fix the upper part of them anyway (they were all installed with a gap at the top, which always makes my eye twitch a little), so I suppose I’ll just get around to all of these things while I’m patching and painting all of the new window trim.
So, on my list of things I’ve fixed already but am now needing to fix again, this has jumped up to the top. I think someone told me at some point that when the “new” things you put in your house start to break down, maybe it’s time to start thinking of a new project. Or, just face the facts that when it comes to DIY and home improvement, there’s no such thing as D-O-N-E.
Happy Friday, folks!
