Oh, it’s that time of the year again…the time Tara hates with a passion, because of the ridiculous influx of traffic. The time I’m sure Misti does her best to head down south to spend time with family and catch some beads. The time of the year when Kelsey hates the north Louisiana school system for putting up decorations but not letting them out for the holiday.
Yes, my friends, Mardi Gras season is upon us.
Truth be told, I have never been to a “real” Mardi Gras parade. I’d like to go to a few down South, simply for the experience, but it’s never been in the cards apparently. I hear the Metairie parades are the ones to hit up on Monday and Tuesday. Maybe next year.
Because this year, see, I will probably be working on my floor.
As I briefly mentioned in my last post, my kitchen flooded. Again (I feel the need to add the “again” part as this seems to be a bi-annually occurrence at our house.). So, for the third (fourth? I lose track.) time, we will be putting down new floor.
HOWEVER. No more laminate flooring. We learned our lesson last time.
(HAHA! Side note: My husband is rolling his eyes, I’m sure, at this part, as I did little more than pick the flooring out last time. He, my dad, and several awesome friends spent the better part of three days laying laminate flooring down in our kitchen. It was a bigger job than we realized.)
So I’m getting ceramic tile floor in the kitchen, which I’m really excited about. The original “New Floor Day” was supposed to be Friday, but that is not going to work out, so (at publication date) it’s going down Monday. Happy Mardi Gras to me!!
Since it will be Mardi Gras, I have some ideas how I can help my dad and husband get into the holiday spirit while they (we?) put down the tile:
1. Throw beads at them as a reward when they put down a line of tile.
2. Buy a king cake. And maybe share it.
3. Brew the rest of PJ’s King Cake coffee. Yum….
4. Do this to the dog.
5.Green, gold, and purple grout? No, too much, even for me…
Any other suggestions?
