Funny Visual!

The bottom of my drawer in my kitchen island, the big one with all the utensils, etc. became detatched from the groove that holds the bottom piece in. I discovered it one day when I opened it and most of the stuff in it spilled out all over the floor and into the bottom of the inside of the island. I was too busy to deal with it then, so I got this basket I had and just piled the stuff I picked up into it. It was sitting on the counter by the refridgerator. I was still to busy to deal with it all a few days later, and my husband said he would pick up some glue, fix it etc. Well he kept forgetting and I kept forgetting and finally this morning I decided I couldn't stand it anymore, so today was the day I decided! So I took everything out that was still in there and found some gorilla glue. I couldnt get the piece to move into the groove like it needed to be so I realized I was going to have to lay down under the drawer and hammer the thing into the opening...I was hammering it in from the underside with a wrench I found in the other drawer. All of a sudden the whole entire drawer comes flying out of the island over my head (luckily) and slams out onto the floor!!!! Can you visualize??? Then, since it didn't land on my face I had to laugh at how stupid it all looked..so now I am laying on my back on the floor laughing and trying to "get up"...I was like a roach on my back......I finally got up and realized that duhhh I should have taken the darn thing out to fix it in the first place!!!!! So I saw where it had pulled loose from the little u shaped nail thingy, so I hammered it back and put two pieces of duct tape on each side. Thank goodness for duct tape and gorilla glue!!! Now one of these days I have to do the same thing to the one in my pantry. I won't be laying in the bottom of it hammering it though. because it has canned goods on it and I would so hate to get pelted in the face by cans of green beans, corn, baked beans, tomato sauce and whatever else is in there!

I took some garden pictures to show yall the other day and none of them turned out, my camera is toast. Gonna have to see about getting a new one. Thats why I haven't shared any pictures lately. But I will ASAP! Hope you all are doing good and that you all have a fabulous
MOTHER'S DAY !!!!!!!!

Hammering with a wrench... Stuck on your back like a roach...narrowly missing decapitation by a flying drawer...sounds like we went to the same home improvement school. Someday I'll teach you to put up drywall with a butcher knife. Great post!
