All these words perfectly Sum up our Saturday.

Shocking - while preparing my breakfast this morning I hear CRASH, BANG, WHOA! "Moooooom?? What happened?!" I run upstairs, walk into my parentals' room and see Mommacita standing in the middle of her walk-in closet completely surrounded by piles of clothes and shoe boxes. I look at one wall and the two shelves that hang prominently on the wall are no longer there. That's right. The shelves (along with all their contents) came crashing down today. Mommacita was condensing all the clothes in the closet to prepare for our new carpet installation next week (did you know clothes must be at least 3 ft off the ground for this process?) I've never seen Mommacita so perplexed. "I don't even know where to start." About 15 minutes later, all the clothes were piled on the bed and the "damage" was surveyed. Needless to say, a trip to Lowe's was on the agenda.

Skilled - Mommacita totally stepped up to the plate today and rehung the shelves in her closet and so far so good. She's such a smarty and totally embodies "make it work." (I showed some Skill today as well. Gave Momma a quick tutorial on how to get the power drill to rotate the opposite way to remove the screw. thank you tech theatre classes in college!)

Sweaty - Today was day 3 of "project desk renovation." I promise I'll post pictures tomorrow or Monday. I'm really pleased with how it looks. Back to Sweaty... today was an unruly, boiling day. While driving earlier I wanted to see what the temp was outside. I looked at the thermostat in my car and it said "Hell." Yep. That's about right. Okay, so maybe it didn't say that, but it might as well have. Yikes!

Smelly - This word has a negative connotation, but in our house today it was a positive. I made turkey burgers with a cranberry relish for lunch. Yum-o! It was a nice respite for Mommacita as she worked on the closet renovation!

Slippery - Oy vei. I am such a klutz. I was walking down the Stairs (our hardwood Stairs) tonight in my Socks and the next thing I knew, I was flat on my back and in agony. Yep. I slipped on the stairs and landed on the edge of one stair on my tailbone and slid down the remaining three steps. I haven't felt like such a baby in quite a while. I rolled over to my stomach as I wept in our foyer. Mommacita came running (wait, role reversal from this morning, yes?) and got me two ziploc bags of ice for my tailbone and my Spine. Needless to say, I'm a weeeeee bit Sore.

Sweet - It sure is Sweet that this Saturday is over. Kidding. Kind of. But in Seriousness, it's been sweet to see that when the going gets tough, we're there for each other.

And Stylish - this really has nothing to do with me, but have you seen Tommy Hilfiger's new Plaza apartment? Please and Thank you!

I think I might have to pick up this issue of Harpers Bazaar to add the photos to my inspiration board!

Oh, and check out Brunch at Saks and The Company She Keeps (two of my favorite blogs) for a chance to win a custom Belle of the Wall piece!!

Here's to a better S-day tomorrow! xoxo, E
