Meet Jessie and Jens

This is Jessie and Jens. Jessie drove all the way from Las Vegas to help me paint my kitchen. What's more she drove all that way with two little girls. Why would Jessie drive all that way, just to help me paint a kitchen? Maybe she's a bit touched or maybe it was one of these reasons

Reason #1: She didn't want to miss seeing the huge nail in our wall. This nail was fat and long and refused to budge. We tried pulling it out and hammering it in. Michael finally just cut it off (see Michael doing just that in the previous post).

Reason #2: She wanted to see how cute Chase is when he gets on the bus. Hopefully this wasn't the reason. If it was, her drive will have been for naught because Chase missed the bus. There is a 20 minutes window of time we have to watch for the bus. The bus happened to come during the 1 minute I ran to the garage. So I drove Chase to school and handed him off to a woman who claimed to be his teacher, and hoped against hope that he made it home in the afternoon. He did by the way. Whew!

Reason #3: She was anxious to show off her ability to talk her way out of a parking ticket. I was just as anxious to see this ability as she was to show it off-- so when she asked if I thought it was okay for her to park pointing the wrong way in front of my house I said, "Sure it is!" She was a quick talker too. He changed it from a ticket to a warning. What a nice guy!

Reason #4: She wanted to figure out what crazy thing I was going to be doing to my walls. Not only did I tell her but I forced her to participate. So what do you think?
