- I am not against public school, or formal schooling.
- I know teachers are extremely hard working, loving and mostly have their hands tied.
- apparently I am an odd-ball when it comes to schooling philosophy

Day 14, Tuesday: Ten things that make you really happy
Since my phone's storage was maxed out I had to unload 3 years worth of cell phone pics onto my computer. It was really fun to look back, so I'm twisting the challenge for today to
Ten pictures that make me happy :

This week's project is a dresser for Maddie. It seems we are always short on dresser space with growing kids and growing wardrobes. Maddie had been using a small antique dresser we bought off ebay when she was a baby. Long before anyone had heard of Craig and his list. Since then, I had been scouring the area for suitable fix-em-up real wood dressers with no luck. Then I realized that we have the perfect fixer-upper in our garage!
Back story: my parents gave us an old solid chest and Tyler promptly chopped off the legs and used it to store his tools in the garage. Now, I was not happy about this, it was my parents' dresser, and I think even my grandparents'. But every time I approached him about it, he put his foot down and said no--it was now looking pretty shabby. Well, this time I put my foot down and said I'm taking it. Maybe it was my failed attempts at finding anything better that he finally gave in.
He made a new bottom/legs for it and I painted. I used my ASCP and since a review was requested, I'll give one: meh. That's it. I think it's awesome for certain applications, I think people can do amazing things with it (that is not me) but I just wanted a white dresser and wasn't going to get all fancy. I wish I had used something else now because I feel like it took quite a few coats for good coverage, I sanded anyway and then I had to wax it and I really hate the waxing part. Maybe things work better when you buy all the expensive brushes, but I didn't want to get the expensive brushes. I'm cheap.

Day 10, Friday: Most embarrassing moment (s). Spill.
Hmmm, this one is hard for numerous reasons: I do dumb, embarrassing things daily, I laugh at myself easily, I'm ok with being the different one.
So really, MOST embarrassing moment?
