rufflesandstuff Glutton for punishment. Inside of the kitchen cabinets this time! At least they only need three coats. Fresh white cabinets, though? So worth it!! 🤗 20h

  •   lnrreese Wait. Paint the INSIDE?? Oh man... I didn't even think about that! 17h
  •   rufflesandstuff @foxyshmoxy it's sherwin Williams, extra white base with 4 oz of white in it...I don't know what that means, but the paint people will. it's just a basic, bright white. 30s

rufflesandstuff Paige and her friends have started a kindness club today she and another girl collected cans for the food bank. They will hold meetings in our attic and Paige has a Very Important Clipboard that she makes notes and plans on. It's all so wonderful. Remember doing things like that as a kid?? 5d

rufflesandstuff Yesterday we had quite an issue with the nine(teen?) year old not showing respect to her parents. We were going to have her write "I will obey my parents" 200 times, but I switched the sentence at the last minute, because I wanted her to realize that the real reason she needs to obey us, is because her Creator wants her to have a good life. It's not really about submitting to us, it's about submitting to God and his plan for authority. Then I pulled up a chair next to her and started MY 200 sentences, because I probably need it more than she does. 🙂 6d
  •   caitieperkins Love it... Perfect example 5d
  •   yallcrazybutitsfun Nice. For variety, essays are great also, with use of rubric and scripture references on topic. I'm a teacher ;-) 5d
  •   lisarenata What a wonderful idea. I'm Devi Italy gong to use it. 20h

rufflesandstuff Stare down. This was right after I jumped around my laundry room with a plastic bat, screaming and hissing and smack talking him. I'm pretty sure I told him to "come at me bro". In the end, he and his wife are still sittin' pretty in my basement, and I'm thinking I won't be doing laundry for a while... #raccoons #socutethough 1w
  •   rufflesandstuff @pinksuedeshoe ohhhhh my goodness, I'm following her now! I want a pet raccoon so badly!! 1w
  •   rufflesandstuff @peggi_rae I totally want to see their baby raccoon! 1w
  •   sewmuchado Oh my word! I had a staredown with one in my backyard the other night, and that freaked me out - I can't imagine having it in my house! 😮 2d
  •   rufflesandstuff @sewmuchado they are so cute and scary at the same time! We got ours out by soaking rags in apple cider vinegar, and putting them up where they were hiding out. Just in case you ever need to. I hope you don't! 2d

rufflesandstuff Just when you're congratulating yourself on painting EVERY room in your house, life whispers in your ear: "...but what about the closets??" 😑 2w
  •   ektvol I ignore the closets. 2w
  •   megannielsenpatterns So impressed! My plans to paint the whole house white are going soooo slowly. So far I have only conquered 2 kids rooms, playroom, office and laundry pat yourself on the back honey, you don't good! Also don't think about the base boards and trim 2w
  •   megannielsenpatterns done not don't - stupid autocorrect 2w
  •   rufflesandstuff @megannielsenpatterns oh man, don't you hate it when a project won't come along as quickly as you want?? But you've got a lot on your plate! And haha, we have gorgeous old wood trim that I wouldn't dream of painting. Thank goodness!! 2w

rufflesandstuff Happy Mother's Day to the person who taught me almost everything I know about godliness and doing the right thing. This woman takes self-sacrifice to the next level. She's had more heartache in the last few years than some have in their entire lives, but she presses on and grows and remains faithful, and I take great comfort in her example. 3w
