Happy Friday friends!
This summer is going by way too fast, as is time in general for that matter, and I just want everything to slow down a bit. As I’ve mentioned before, my oldest is going into his senior year in high school this year, so a couple of the items I’m sharing this week go along with that because I’m feeling a bit sentimental right now (you’ve been warned, and you might want to grab a tissue)! So, let’s get to it. This post contains some affiliate links.
For those of you with seniors, you’ll appreciate this bucket list for parents as they navigate this last year of high school.
This article took me by surprise and left me in a puddle, and I think anyone with kids, no matter what stage you are in raising them, can appreciate it. It’s so hard to articulate the perspective you get once they’re older, and how it feels looking back. Great article, have those tissues handy.
On a completely different subject, I picked up some of Krud Kutter’s Brush Wash (since I always used their Cleaner and Deglosser), and have to give it two thumbs up. It’s not smelly like some solvent-based brush wash, and most importantly, it gets the job done. My brushes looked squeaky clean when I used it – definitely a keeper!
I mentioned last week that I started a Stephen King suspense trilogy, and was reading Mr. Mercedes. Well, I finished that one, and am now reading Finders Keepers. Such a great series! I think I’ll be through all three before you know it.
With all of the hubbub about Melania Trump’s speech, you can see here, that they’re really not all that similar. 😉
My +1 for the week – the false front panels in front of kitchen sinks. I know this is a random, odd +1, but let me tell you, they are the devil’s handiwork. They seem fairly innocuous at first glance, but I dare you to try and remove yours. Some pop off really easily, but there are others that are nailed, stapled, glued and screwed into place, making it an exercise in frustration to remove them in order to paint them. Don’t get me started on trying to reinstall them…
Vent over. Have a wonderful weekend!
