At any given time there is a very good chance that I am currently obsessed with a particular project or fad. Those who know me can remember some of these obsessions such as painting our entire house when we moved in several years ago, decorating Evans' nursery with insane attention to detail, collecting a number of different things where I can't rest until I have every last one of those "somethings". It's pretty much my nature to have something going at all times that I can pour my extra attention into. While my current grand idea is redecorating a play room for Evans (mainly to get all the toys out of my den) sometimes my tastes exceed my budget and things must be put on hold (I'm also not sure where I am going to get a ladder that tall). Instead of working on my grand plan I've had to focus my attention elsewhere and I'm pretty sure our water faucets are paying the price. While I know this is a very strange thing to be obsessed with, I cannot stop scouring our water fixtures that have become disgusto due to our hard water problem in Germany. It's like I woke up yesterday morning and could not stand the thought of touching the faucet again until I had a solution. After an afternoon with Google I had a game plan and found myself up at nearly midnight last night mixing up mixtures to tackle this problem I could no longer stand to live with. Let's just say that I was up this morning with raw hands and went immediately to the base for back up. As of right now, my hands are a disaster and I'm scared to touch Evans' bare skin but I'm finally seeing results. I don't think that the calcium deposits and lime build up can stand one more night of my wrath. My kitchen sink looks brand new as well so I think I will rope it off and not let anyone ever use it again. It's a good thing that Deaner is out of town. Think this could be a problem? At least baking soda and white vinegar are cheap! Wish I had before and after pictures but the obsession came on so quickly that I didn't think to take a picture of my disgusting shower fixture. Instead I can offer a picture of Evans' current obsession. I actually got it off his head long enough today to wash it. And no, he is not ALWAYS sitting in his high chair but it is the only time I think about taking a picture. Happy Tuesday!
