This Is What Happens When I Clean

One weekend, we got Jim's mom to watch Dylan at her house, so we could get stuff done around the house.  Jim installed a ceiling fan in our bedroom.  I tried to tackle the disaster area that is our spare room, and get stuff ready for several sales coming up.

Installing a ceiling fan meant moving the bed.  That allowed me to see the humongous dust bunnies that had been living under the bed, which led to me deciding that I must clean every inch of the bedroom immediately!  That led me to discover the four boxes of artwork that Jim had shoved under the bed.  THAT led me to possibly an hour of discoveries, looking at Jim's artwork that I hadn't seen before.  THAT led me to this post.

When Jim tells me about his dreams, I've noticed they often involve him being a badass.  I think he has always had a secret (or not so secret now) desire to be like this guy...


Or maybe this guy...


Or, this guy?




I KNOW he wanted to be this guy for a while...


Oh, and he wanted this car... and still does...




In truth, sadly, I think these drawings were a more accurate foretelling of his future...





I mean, we don't have a convertible, and I'm not blonde, but still... pretty accurate.  And, this next one really made me think he is secretly psychic...



In case you ever wondered how old Jim is, this should give you an idea...


This one is so uncharacteristic, at first I thought it was one of mine.  I love it, and I want to know what that girl is thinking...


Some of you will be able to relate to this one... I know I can...


You might have noticed, a lot of Jim's artwork is somewhat "dark" in subject.  But this next one scared me!


That's one of his ex-girlfriends.  HAHAHAHAHAHA (snort)  That is what I thought when I saw it, but the funny part is that when I asked him about it, he said, "I demonized a picture of an ex-girlfriend".  "She must have been so flattered", I remarked.  "Hopefully, you won't be doing one of me any time soon?!"



He got a B+ on this one!  Are you kidding me?!  Just goes to show that art is subjective.  Well, I for one think he is very talented.  I'm his biggest fan, just like this chick...


Yea, I'm exactly like... that.

Those are awesome! Disturbing, but awesome! Isn't it funny the things we learn about our spouses - especially when we start digging through closets and boxes?!
