Up next on my Home Improvement Whirlwind Tour 2017 is a brand new subway-tile backsplash, courtesy of my two friends Jacque and Corrie. Let’s just say these ladies know their way around a tool belt.
I supervised as much as I could, but mostly stayed out of the way — except when they put me to work buttering tiles. I was amazed at how it all came together, and how it completely transformed and brightened my kitchen.
I am so thankful for their willingness to help me out, and I only wish I could return the favor or pass on the kindness somehow. I made a list of things I could contribute to friends, and all I came up with was making cookies, telling dick jokes and taking you out for a night on the town to help you forget your troubles.
Perhaps I’ll amass some skills soon — like maybe lawn mowing, drilling holes or giving phenomenal back rubs. But now that I think about it, the last time I attempted a back rub, I was dumped the next day.
I’ll have to get back to you on that one.
