Quilt With Us

We are starting a remodel of our main bathroom, so have been out scouting products. We went to the Home Depot to check out their washer and dryers. I never noticed that they had built a 700 sq ft. second floor for appliances. The clerk said there is a one person elevator to get up there in a wheelchair. Okay...let's do it! Well, it's one of those half open air jobbies that give you the feeling it isn't going to make it. Does that even ring a bell??? NO.... I'm focused on seeing the appliances. So, he loads me in...now, I know what it feels like to be a cow being loaded in a trailer. Then I realize hubby is taking pictures from up above laughing!

The clerk turns the key and it starts up and then half way up... chugs to a stop! So, I'm looking up wondering how far it is to climb out of this , if I had to. The clerk is getting nervous...we're laughing. I heard someone mention the fire dept. I told him over my dead body. I didn't want to be on local news for this!!!! So, I just tried jiggling the key a bit and it took off. I swear...I am related to Lucy Ricardo!

Hubby is filming this for later laugh-a-thon I'm sure.

Have a blessed Easter!

I hope you have better luck with the remodeling than the elevator ride!  Also better luck than we did a few yrs ago when we remodeled our hall bathroom in our last house in Las Vegas.  My BIL insisted on "helping us" by doing the work.  After 6 weeks, he went back to CA, knowing that we were going to have 7 extra people in our house for a few days, with the new toilet sitting in the dining room & the new sink sitting in the living room!  We had to pay a plumber $400 to come over at the last minute & hook everything up.  I was sitting in my sewing room crying my eyes out so much that I had to call my DH home from work.  Needless to say, we never let his brother touch another remodeling job for us!

And your hands are clasped together like you are praying, either for you, or your dh when you get done with him??? 

Years ago, at a Legion dinner, DH and I were dancing,,, he put me in a dip, dropped me, and walked off the floor, leaving me down.  He still is paying for that one!!!
