Questions that MUST be answered!

See that wallpaper behind me? Isn't it hideous? My plan (because if you know me, I always have a plan) for today includes stripping that wallpaper and the lovely striped wallpaper underneath it in addition to some other scary wallpaper in another bathroom in our house. I have NEVER done this so I'm a little apprehensive. Okay, maybe a little more than a little. But thankfully, my sweet friend Debbie is helping me because she is the queen of all home improvement tasks (seriously, she ROCKS) and because she is an amazing friend!

Before I begin I have a just a few questions for you:

1. Is it normal that I put makeup on and did my hair to strip wallpaper simply because I could not stand the thought of looking at scary me in the mirror all day?

2. How many Sonic Diet Cokes do you think it will take for me to be able to finish this project?

3. How long will it take before I look at the mess we are making and think..........Why did I ever decide to do this?

4. Could I look any dorkier in this picture? (Good night nurse look at all those wrinkles on my forehead! It looks like a shar pei puppy! And boy look at those roots! EEK!)

  1. 1. PERFECTLY normal to put on makeup and do the hair. Besides, what happens if you die in the middle of it and the funeral home guy can't do hair very well???? HUH?

    2. I'd just fill up the bath tub with Sonic drinks, get a very long straw and have at it throughout the day.

    3. Too funny!!

  2. Did you get some fabric softener liquid? It is said that if you put it in a spray bottle and spray it on the wallpaper it helps it to come off faster.

    Sonic, just have them deliver!

    You are too cute!

  3. I've stripped wallpaper before too...and ICK would not want to do it again! lol I didn't put on makeup or do my hair, but I did avoid the mirror like the plague! lol

    I think the pic is cute, but your comments about it are hilarious! :o)

  4. You are just 2 2 2 funny!!!!

    1. Yes! I would probably get dolled up too to work in front of a mirror all day!

    2. I like the above idea of filling the tub with the Dt. Coke! Can you arrange to have a Sonic guy on stand by to just keep bringing refills over?!! You are a good enough customer that they should deliver to you!

    3. Umm, I've stripped wallpaper! It will take you just a couple of minutes! Then you'll wonder why you didn't research just painting over it!!

    4. That is a funny expression on your face!

  5. 1. Not sure I would have even taken a shower before I started. Ponytail, old t-shirt, and old shorts and have at.

    2. Do they deliver? You might want to just set up periodical auto deliveries throughout the day. If not I say at least 3 trips.

    3. Not long at all. Probably as soon as the paper doesn't come off as it should and it is sticking to everything else as well.

    4. You look cute! Can't see the roots and those wrinkles are adorable.

  6. Shannon! You are so darn cute! I'd love to just shrink you down and put you in my pocket!
    Good luck with your project today. I hate wallpaper.

  7. In short:
    1. No- but that's you :-)
    2. I'd say about 28
    3. About an hour
    4. No, not really :-P (What roots?)
    Love you, sweetie- have fun!

  8. Where's the pic of your lower lip jutting out in total pout mode from last night? That's the one to post now... hehe ;o)
