and now a word from my sponsor … my husband mike

Tonight it’s raining. Or is it sleeting? I’m not sure. No, really, it’s miserabling outside. Yes, Microsoft Word is underlining that word, but rebel that I am, I’m not changing it. Perhaps I’ve just coined a word. Fact is, the temperature is right around 32, so a mixture of rain and ice is slapping at our house. Glad I decided to shower indoors for once.


Given the cruddy outdoor time of the year, this seems to be a good time to focus on indoor improvements, or so I understand from Linda. I have once again heard the term B&B as my beautiful wife discusses redoing the dining and living rooms. When I say “discusses,” that means, she talks and I nod. Because she’s beautiful.


I’ve heard “B&B” before. Bed and Breakfast. Benedictine and Brandy. Biggio and Bagwell.

(Yes, Astros fans, I left out Bell and Berry and Berkman, sorry.) Bacon and Baloney. Okay, I made up that last one.


Then I remembered that B&B in our house really means “Board and Batten.” Our home could become Bed Bath Board Batten and Beyond. And this evening the blue tape is up on the walls. I’m B-doomed!

    Mike, you’re so funny! And very sweet. What woman doesn’t want to hear from her husband that she’s beautiful? :) I can’t wait to see what this latest project will look like. I’m sure it will be amazing, as all of Linda’s projects tend to be. Have a great week, and stay inside!

    Hahahaha!!! You know, Linda, I love all your posts, but I’m always excited to read the posts from your “sponsor” — they’re always so funny! This one is my favorite of all. I forwarded to my husband and he REALLY connected with it, if you know what I mean. Don’t change a thing, either of you, I love your blog! :-)
