Not a good idea

It never pays to get in a hurry, does it? And . . most certainly, it's never a good idea to try to do something when one really DOESN'T have the time to do the job -- correctly -- or -- even at all.

Here's what happened last night:

All week I had been trying to polish my fingernails. So last night I had two or three extra minutes (that alone should have sent off some alarms) before leaving for church, so I thought I would get the job done. (The stirring wheel is a great place to let nail polish dry.) Anyway, . . . . . . the polish bottle slipped out of my hand and polish went all over the bathroom floor, the wall, the leg of my jeans, my shoe and on the bathmat! My NEW bathmat!

I quickly grabbed the polish remover and began cleaning the floor and wall. Next was my shoe then my jeans (which still bore hint of polish). Now, I'm standing there looking at white polish on my blue bathmat. (White because I was going to do a a quick french tip.) I didn't have time to clean the bathmat so I grabbed the mat and put it in the sink to soaked in water, which turned out to be overnight.

This morning I put the mat in the washing machine to spin out the excess water so I could see what was left to clean. Some of the polish actually did come out but I still had more to clean. You can still see some of the polish in the picture. It looked much worse last night.

I'm to say proud that I did get all of the polish out of the rug, off the floor, off the baseboard , off my shoe, and out of my jeans! No evidence of the incident visible. Whew!!


I am very tempted to call myself stupid - - however, I've started the Bible study, "Me, Myself, & Lies" by Jennifer Rothchild. (It's about self talk.) So I guess I'd better restrain myself and not give in to the temptation!
Note to self: Sweet thing, don't do that again!

Love,

hey! is it a good book? sounds like it would be! Let me know what you think when you are done. I just put a "hold" on a book I checked out to a patron today called "Radical Womanhood: Feminine Faith in a Feminist World"by Carolyn McCulley cause it looked interesting! Hope it is a good read.

The nightstand by my bed still has nail polish streaks where a little boy spilled nail polish all over it. Funny thing is... it stays so cluttered you don't see the stain much anyway! ha ha!

Thanks for visiting me (o: Enjoyed your blog. I make messes like that when coloring my own hair. Every time something doesn't end up being the same as it was when I started. The Grandsons party looked like great fun. I only have girls so far (o: Listened to the worship song... that was very nice.
Come back sometime.

I'm so glad you were able to manage to remove the polish! Very good, Sherry.

Don't you ever just wonder why things like that have to happen in the first place?

Sounds like a very good study. I wanted to participate, but knew I couldn't at this time.

I sent you an e-mail.

Have a great weekend!

Whew! That MM&L is really soemthing, isn't it? Wow I am so bad to me! So glad you got your mess all cleaned up and it didn't leave a trace...and I am WAY behind on my blogs but I am loving catching up on here with you. Your trips with kiddos and your grandson's birthday party pics are just precious!
