And yeah, I know that’s the central theme around this here blog-diggity. But sometimes when you are bent on your son’s door having its own “railroad crossing” sign, and everyone selling them wants too many dollars in your humble opinion, you just have to throw your hands up and say “I’ll do it myself!”
Usually, I enjoy a good do-it-myself, but I was in a weirdly angered state most of the weekend and by the time we got to Home Depot I just wanted to Hulk-smash everything I saw.
The first thing I wanted to Hulk-smash? Their entire vinyl letter section for not having any of the letter “C” left.
The second thing: D for wandering off.
The third: the staff for not helping me quiiiiite as quickly as I deemed acceptable.
So I raged myself out of there and into Wal-Mart who thankfully had a full set of lettering available. Saved the planet from utter destruction, I tell you what.
So all I needed was some pre-painted white wood because it was just worth the few extra bucks to me to not have to do it, some of those stick-on vinyl letters, and a husband willing to brave my mood to do the cutting.
Don’t even bring up the fact that I forgot to get one of those over-the-door-hanger-thingies. Because I just, I can’t even….
So I’ll probably just hold on to it until I get the rest of his room done. Because it’s in the works. Ohhhhh yes it is!
How was your weekend? Any one else fall victim to the cranky-for-no-reason’s?
