I thought my child would have outgrown his advent ornament tree this year since he didn't want Silly Apple Pumpkin day either. But I was wrong.
And found out I was wrong the day before I was supposed to start the calendar. So I quickly went into action and made three paper craft ornaments that came out really cute for being last minute. But then decided I would follow my own book's advice this year and ask for help being that I had 22 ornaments still left to make.
So I asked the hubs if he would cut me a couple of wood medallions that I could turn in to ornaments. He said yes. I explained that I needed them quickly. He still said yes.
24hrs later there were no medallions so I took matters in to my own hands. I walked my happy butt in to the garage grabbed a wood stick and found a little hand-saw that looked just to be my size.
With the door cracked slightly so he was sure to hear me, I started sawing on that piece of wood....
"What the heck are you doing" I hear as he is running towards me like Speedy Gonzales. "That is a dry wall saw, you are going to dull my blade".
He takes the saw away, hangs it back up and walks back in to the house. Hmmm, OK then... "This should work".
I sat on the floor with his giant wood saw and started carving....
"What the heck are you doing now?" As he is running back in to the garage.
"I'm cutting this medallion for an ornament. You were too busy with your game so I'll take care of it. Think I have the right saw now"
"You aren't even doing it right" he balks "here give me that saw"
A few seconds later I had an ornament...
But the next day, I came home to all of those in the picture freshly cut to become ornaments of coolness.
Needless to say, asking for help didn't work so good... but....grabbing the wrong saw, worked perfectly. *smile*
