This week we’re going over how you can furnish a home from scratch since I lately offered a house absolutely furnished and needed to begin over. Plus, we’re going to let you know our responsible pleasure treasures. All proper. So yeah, I feel that that is going to be a enjoyable episode. So earlier than we leap in, Emma has had her home sprayed by a skunk 3 times within the final. What number of months? 

Emma: Yeah. We’ve lived in our home for six months and 3 times our canine has gotten sprayed by a skunk and a few weeks in the past, it was twice in a single week. And it’s so unhappy for our canine as a result of skunk spray should you don’t know clearly it smells horrible, but it surely’s additionally like itchy and it makes him sneeze an entire bunch and he’s simply clearly attempting to guard our home. However I’m additionally like, Steve, no want, that skunk isn’t gonna get in the home, simply go away it alone. However yeah, after which he smells horrible after which he runs all around the home. So then our entire home smells like skunk. And one night time it occurred, it was like midnight as a result of skunks are nocturnal. So this week, actually earlier than we began recording, I used to be like, maintain on, I would like a couple of minutes. I’m on the telephone with the skunk trapper as a result of we’re paying somebody to return and entice them and take them away as a result of we don’t actually know what else to do at this level as a result of clearly they maintain getting in and it’s like we don’t dwell in a forest. I dwell like on a nook lot with a daily little fence in a daily neighborhood. I don’t see why we’re having this skunk downside, however we actually are and for the time being our visitor bed room, which is the place Steve’s mattress is, smells so unhealthy and it has for like an entire week straight. And I’ve tried every part the web has stated to attempt to it’s not getting higher, and I don’t know. I feel it’s higher, but it surely’s simply intense. 

Elsie: So ship Emma any solutions you’ve for breaking a skunk curse as a result of she clearly has a curse and it must be damaged. 

Emma: It’s not good. It’s not good over right here. You possibly can’t come over it stinks.

Elsie: I’ve by no means had a skunk expertise. So I imply in addition to like driving, everybody’s had that. However yeah, I’ve by no means had a skunk expertise at my home and t it does sound actually scary. Oh my god. 

Emma: It’s not good. It’s unhealthy. It’s type of humorous too as a result of I truly suppose skunks are actually cute. Just like the animals.

Elsie: Oh yeah, they’re cute. 

Emma: However man, should you see after I’m like, run the opposite approach, run as quick as you may. Don’t scare it. Like, I don’t know, it lingers. Ah. In order that’s my private story. 

Elsie: Rattling you skunks. 

Emma: Really feel sorry for me or not nonetheless you are feeling. I really feel sorry for myself. 

Elsie: I feel they do. I feel that everybody feels sorry for you since you’re cursed.

Emma: I’m cursed. 

Elsie: Effectively, I hope that that’s the final time. Thrice feels like sufficient. You may give us an replace in a few months. 

Emma: I’ll let you already know if the trapping labored in the event that they received ’em. I don’t know. I don’t know. I’ve by no means known as an animal trapper earlier than on this approach. 

Elsie: I’m like on this approach since you did. 

Emma: Effectively, that was a useless animal. 

Elsie: A snake out of your home. 

Emma: We used to dwell by a forest and we had some main snake issues then, however now we’ve got a skunk downside.

Elsie: I type of suppose it’s a curse that’s following you from home to deal with. 

Emma: It appears to be. Though nothing actually occurred to me at Weller and I lived there on my own for just a little bit. So perhaps it’s Trey’s curse. It’s perhaps my husband’s curse. I don’t know, we’re all cursed on this home now trigger all of us scent just a little bit. Oscar’s room is skunk free at the least. In order that’s good.

Elsie: Effectively, I’m enthusiastic about this episode. So lately we offered our home, furnished our home in Tennessee, and we needed to, and I did an entire episode about that, a few episodes again. So we’ll hyperlink that within the present notes. After which immediately we thought we might spend an episode speaking about what it’s prefer to furnish a home from scratch as a result of I’ve gotten quite a lot of questions on it and I do suppose it’s attention-grabbing. It was enjoyable, and it was undoubtedly each very enjoyable and type of quite a lot of strain to do it like so speedy, however I’d say principally enjoyable. And I’ll say I’m contemplating this episode, I’m giving us a type of little psychological bubbles, and I’m contemplating this episode a judgment-free zone as a result of I feel that speaking overtly about shopping for furnishings to your whole home was just a little goal on my again and I settle for that, I get it, however it’s like type of what occurred virtually and like no matter. And yeah, I believed I’d begin with the judgemental story, only for the enjoyable of it to kind of like affect everybody to not be this manner. Okay. So you know the way in your DMS typically, I don’t know if this has ever occurred to you however each every now and then, it doesn’t occur to me a lot, however somebody will ship a message that’s like clearly meant for his or her good friend, that’s shit speaking you, but it surely involves you. 

Emma: Sure. That’s wonderful. 

Elsie: Yeah. And I don’t know the way it occurs. 

Emma: It’s of their mind, they’re like speaking about you, and rapidly they by chance click on over to sending it to you, that’s so humorous. 

Elsie: And I feel they perhaps, I don’t know in the event that they understand it or not, however yeah, so I received one. I haven’t gotten one in a very long time, and I received one the opposite day that simply stated she offered all her children’ books and it like bugged me so freaking unhealthy as a result of, properly, I’ll inform the entire thing. It bugged me so unhealthy as a result of initially, I purchased all our books lately, like final 12 months. So we made the hidden Library solely like a 12 months in the past, a 12 months and a half in the past or two years in the past. It wasn’t even there. It was like, it wasn’t there, it didn’t exist. So, I suppose what I wanna say in protection of myself and in protection of, I suppose it’s a life lesson I discovered all through this expertise. Considered one of my buddies on Instagram additionally, had her home burned down and we had been kind of commiserating about it, it is a little bit of comparable issues, having your home burned down versus promoting your entire home furnished is the belief that 99% of the issues in your home are replaceable, and it’s one thing that I feel we simply don’t notice that, but it surely’s true for most likely all of us. And sure, I’ve household photographs and I’ve this actually particular portray of my grandma and I’ve a few items of clothes and a few mementos, my children’ portray, and issues like that. However total, 99% of the issues in our home are issues I may simply purchase once more tomorrow from common shops and we wouldn’t even discover that they had been completely different. And I feel that that’s good. I feel that it ought to be encouraging and it ought to be a wholesome reminder that that is all simply stuff. And even when it’s a curated assortment of gorgeous books the place you picked out each single one and also you’ve both learn them otherwise you intend to learn them, it’s nonetheless stuff that you would exchange in at some point with an inventory and a bank card. You already know what I imply? Yeah. So, anyway, from my perspective, I wasn’t actually upset concerning the individual, I believed it was imply, what they stated. However the extra I considered it, the extra I used to be like, initially, I’m grateful that I do know now that every part’s replaceable and it’s not an enormous deal to me. I’m not crying over the books, and we’ll purchase our youngsters simply as many books, most likely far more in our new residence, and so they’re not gonna be like missing for books. I promise you for one single day of their lives they’re simply not. And the opposite factor that I discovered from this expertise is that I used to be extraordinarily honored to go away a completely styled, absolutely excellent children’ library for one more household to take pleasure in. And that was truly a extremely cool expertise. I felt like I used to be compensated for making this lovely factor and I’ll have the ability to make one other one for my children sooner or later. And I don’t know, I believed that was type of cool too. So anyway, now we’re within the judgment-free bubble. 

Emma: Aside from me, I’m gonna choose you as a lot as I need, as ordinary. 

Elsie: I do know. I truly, love your judgements although. That’s effective. I can take it for positive. Okay, let’s chat about it. 

Emma: Yeah. So the place did you begin? I suppose as a result of I really feel prefer to me it sounds so overwhelming to be like, oh, okay so that they bottle the furnishings. How thrilling, constructive factor, now that I’ve wrapped my head round it, so it’s like, what do you begin amassing first? Did you make a hierarchy of wants or how did you even prioritize? As a result of clearly sooner or later you’ll run out of price range or no matter and identical to go away some issues off identical to a renovations, but it surely’s like how do you know the place to begin and what was the method of that type of factor? 

Elsie: Sure. I undoubtedly have some procuring tricks to share. So the very first thing is, I feel it’s essential to have an inventory of belongings you wanna purchase instantly, like a quick listing, and belongings you wanna accumulate over time, a sluggish listing. So some examples of issues that I feel could be good to placed on the quick listing are beds, mattress frames, mattresses, furnishings, rugs, and issues which might be foundational to your room which might be annoying to maneuver out and in. Simply the bottom layer of getting all the fundamental issues, curtains, like that. And issues that I personally suppose are higher to do slowly are decor, wallpaper, particulars, collections, antiques, artwork, and even framing and hanging photos. That’s one thing that I’ll wait a number of months till I’ve lived there for a short time and considered it just a little bit earlier than shopping for all of it and placing it up. So, yeah, I type of simply give it some thought in two layers and the layer that I’ve been engaged on at first is type of identical to the bottom layer, which I’d additionally name the furnishings layer. And it does embody curtains and rugs, however just about the issues that make your room practical and cozy, like having the correct amount of tables and chairs. We talked earlier than about how one thing annoying that occurred was that throughout the pandemic we had simply moved into a house and I didn’t purchase all of the furnishings. Or perhaps, I don’t know if it didn’t come, perhaps it was again ordered or one thing occurred, however I didn’t have any tables or any chairs in our residence, we solely had one on the porch. By way of just about probably the most intense a part of the pandemic when it was like staying residence 24-7 instances, and that was like an enormous mistake. So this time, although I’d’ve somewhat most likely spent extra time and gotten all vintage tables and issues like that, I simply purchased good tables from Wayfair and known as it a day and so they’re accomplished, they’re already arrange, they’re already there. And I do know that we’ll have a spot to sit down in a mattress and the fundamental issues. 

Emma: Yeah, basic items, that is smart. Okay, you simply talked about Wayfair, however you’ve additionally talked about that you just actually like altering your model. It’s gonna be very Knives Out one, Knives Out, initially impressed. So how a lot of the home up to now at the least, would you say is previous issues like antiques or one-of-a-kind versus, newer issues such as you talked about shopping for a desk on Wayfair, and the way do you combine the 2, I suppose could be my follow-up query?

Elsie: So I’d say it’s been 50/50 up to now, with furnishings and rug. So my great, wonderful father-in-law went with me to the flea market the opposite day. I had three days in Springfield, Emma, truly, we met our mother and father in St. Louis for a Mom’s Day weekend, after which I drove residence along with her, after which I had three days to spend. I didn’t actually have a automobile, I simply stayed on the pink home and walked forwards and backwards from the pink home to our new home the complete time. 

Emma: And it rained lots. I used to be like, uh oh.

Elsie: It rained a ton. I had a rain jacket that was good. After which, flew residence after three days. So anyway, throughout that point what we did was we undid each single field, which was nice, and removed all of the bins, and arrange all of the furnishings. So we did get a very good quantity of recent furnishings, particularly issues with very particular sizes. For instance, bedside tables, eating tables, sofas, and rugs had been principally new. Really, I received a very good quantity of classic rugs too. I feel classic rugs are actually, very easy to seek out and particular.

Emma: You should buy these on-line. 

Elsie: Yeah, after which my father-in-law went with me to the flea market and I used to be telling Jeremy all of the stuff I used to be gonna get, however I hadn’t been there in like a month. And he was like, how have you learnt they’re gonna have that stuff? And I used to be like, they all the time do and I simply believed it could be there. 

Emma: She manifested the furnishings.

Elsie: Yeah. Nevertheless it’s true that they all the time do and really the entry desk that I actually needed, I had seen it earlier than a few instances in the past, so it had been there for a short time. So I received a few units of chairs and I feel we received like 14 chairs and an entry desk and he needed to go to go away and go get his trailer as a result of he didn’t notice how a lot stuff I used to be gonna get, after which we tied all of it down and drove it again and it was identical to such an thrilling, good feeling. And I don’t thoughts in any respect shopping for stuff from Wayfair and Amazon and locations like that one hundred percent, it’s simply sensible and practical. However I liked getting all these chairs with like character and persona and never having to pay transport, not having to attend, that a part of it was so nice too. Yeah, I feel I’m gonna attempt to maintain going 50/50, I feel it’s a very good steadiness as a result of I don’t suppose each single factor in the home will be vintage, however I type of need it to look that approach. I don’t wanna have something that you could inform is new or from Goal, or from Ikea or fashionable or no matter. I don’t wanna have something that’s like a brand new pattern. So yeah, you’ll have to inform me if I truly can obtain that, however that’s my intention. 

Emma: Nice. That’ll be my function. I’ll come over and be like, that’s new. And also you’ll be like, no, it’s an vintage. And I’ll be like, okay, that’s new, and also you’ll be like, okay. Yeah, that’s new. That’ll be my guessing recreation. 

Elsie: Yeah, completely. It’s been a lot enjoyable. I had this second a few years in the past the place, I don’t know my model simply modified in a single day. The home I needed to dwell in, identical to utterly modified in a single day and I don’t know what, I can’t pinpoint, I’d say Knives Out had one thing to do with it, but additionally it was like, do you bear in mind after we learn the e-book enjoying large and I did the longer term self visualization. I noticed myself on this sure type of previous home with kind of like a Knives Out home, a darker, richer, antiquey vibe. And that’s beforehand not a method that I’d’ve gravitated towards in any approach. So I type of love that I really feel like I’m like dwelling completely different lives in my design aesthetic. And we simply converted utterly from like Palm Springs, Elsie, to love Knives Out Elsie and there was no in-between. 

Emma: I suppose your Nashville home was the in-between, but it surely was like turning a nineties home into extra of a Knives Outhouse. However, there are limitations.

Elsie: It had just a little little bit of each, you’re proper although.

Emma: It had just a little each. Okay, properly what about some procuring suggestions? Did you get any vintage procuring suggestions? Searching for new stuff suggestions. Let’s hear it since you’ve been procuring lots.

Elsie: Sure. I really feel like knowledgeable shopper. It has been fairly enjoyable. It was perhaps lots to do the entire home as a result of I ordered nearly all of the furnishings for the home in a single weekend and it was just a little bit like a mind-bending train. I feel I undoubtedly received procuring fatigue. The place I’ve needed to kind of like return and that’s the place I feel the layered method is useful as a result of it’s like, simply get the bottom, simply get the issues we’d like, after which there are particular issues the place I do know I can all the time add it later, however yeah my suggestions are, initially, I had a non-public pin board with every part saved that I needed to purchase, and I did it for a number of months earlier than. Just about as quickly as I knew that the furnished home sale factor was taking place, I began this pin board of beds, dressers, rugs, all the principle stuff, the issues which might be like costly the place you wanna get it, proper? And I spent a while overthinking these issues and I type of simply don’t fear about overthinking small issues as a result of I simply suppose you don’t have to. However I feel it’s good to overthink before you purchase a 9×12 rug. After which one other tip, I feel I’ve stated this earlier than, however each time I’m shopping for massive purchases from large field shops, I do that factor the place I purchase coupons from eBay, locations like Anthropology, Creighton barrels, Serena and Lilly, locations like that, there are simply individuals who, they simply get, {a magazine} or an advert within the mail and so they put it on eBay, the place you should purchase it for, I don’t know, perhaps $10 or $20, and also you get like a 20% off coupon, which will be a whole bunch of {dollars} whenever you’re shopping for main purchases. Like after I purchased my children’ bed room furnishings, it was all from one retailer. So it’s like essential to have coupons for issues like that. In order that’s a very good tip. I don’t suppose it’s actually that large of a deal in on a regular basis life whenever you’re shopping for one or two issues, however whenever you’re shopping for quite a lot of stuff it’s tremendous useful. It’s just about like a Black Friday sale or one thing that you could like, make for your self. After which my different recommendation is to make a temper board for each room, which I do know is annoying and I do know is quite a lot of work. I actually don’t do it for each room, however I do it for the rooms the place I’m having bother deciding. I feel it’s actually, actually useful, particularly for bedrooms. You probably have a wallpaper sample, a sample in your rug, or a sample in your comforter or quilt that may develop into too many patterns actually shortly. So it’s actually good to only put them multi functional place the place you may see all of it. And just be sure you get the correct steadiness that you just’re gonna be proud of as a result of particular person gadgets are simply so completely different from how gadgets look collectively in a room. So yeah, these are my chopping suggestions. 

Emma: Effectively, you talked about you had been on the town for 3 days, and also you’re setting issues up, inform us about establishing the home earlier than your loved ones actually will get to see it since you had been right here by your self. 

Elsie: Yeah, I’d actually say the toughest I’ve ever labored in my life is sort of a three-day interval. It was so bodily laborious. After the primary day I used to be like, I feel my again is tousled. On the second day, I used to be like, I feel my foot’s tousled. And on the third day, I had one thing fallacious with me, I don’t bear in mind.

Emma: And on the third day you rose once more. 

Elsie: I had bruises, it was only a mess. And okay, right here’s the humorous factor, I’ve these security knives, it’s a field cutter that’s just a little safer for like kids and stuff. And I’ll hyperlink it within the present notes as a result of it’s an important field cutter. It’s undoubtedly all I take advantage of it cuts by means of like tape and stuff actually simply, however I truly stabbed myself within the hand with it. And what’s humorous is I had already stabbed myself within the finger with a knife in my kitchen the week earlier than. I truly stabbed myself within the hand with this field knife and it didn’t reduce me in any respect. So I’ve to say it’s an important buy. Everybody wants it. It’s not only for children as a result of I simply considered it as safer for youths. In case you by chance go away it out with the children. 

Emma: No, after I noticed it, I used to be like, oh, I can purchase a type of as a result of I all the time get an Amazon field, I simply open it with like our kitchen scissors as a result of they’re identical to proper there within the drawer and I all the time really feel like I’m gonna slice myself. So I used to be like, oh, that field opener seems nice. 

Elsie: Sure. So yeah, it was very enjoyable. On the final night time, I painted a gap. There was this Classic cupboard, it had been in Emma’s vacation home and it had been in my pink home storage for like six months, and we introduced it over and I painted it to match the opposite. I’ve made a kind of like a brief kitchen scenario with cupboards, as a result of our kitchen had nearly no cupboards in any respect, and we took out the island so as to add a brand new island, however then there was like a ton of wall house throughout. So we determined to only add a number of cupboards from Amazon. And I received the hidden trash cupboard, in order that was cool. After which we simply had one in our pink home, so I believed I may simply use that and never waste it. So, I simply painted it actual fast and it was so enjoyable. I used to be listening to a teenage romance novel and simply portray actually late at night time on my own and it was enjoyable. So, yeah, it was extraordinarily fulfilling. It was the most effective feeling ever to only work so laborious, so quick. After which after I left, all of the furnishings was unboxed, all of the bins had been off the porch. Thanks, Mother and Dad. The one factor that I didn’t get accomplished was hanging curtains, so I’m nonetheless looking for a poor sole to assist me with that. However I imply, actually I received fairly far. So I used to be thrilled and I undoubtedly advocate it should you’re shifting right into a home should you can simply give your self a few days. And I did have, I’ll say a few paid helpers, those that I paid to assist me all day, each day so we may get extra accomplished. 

Emma: Yeah as a result of that stuff’s heavy. You want somebody that will help you transfer one thing like you may’t do it by yourself. 

Elsie: And my father-in-law was the most important badass of all time. Yeah, he shouldn’t have let me know that he has that trailer. Don’t you suppose that’s a nasty life alternative?

Emma: I used to be like, Ooh, I feel that is now his job, he’ll see along with her flea market fines and I’m identical to, properly, good luck Gary. Hit him a very good Father’s Day present. 

Elsie: Anyway, it was completely price it, it was so enjoyable and I can’t wait to maneuver in and present the children, we left cute issues of their rooms to make them really feel at residence. And we booked a cleansing two days earlier than we transfer in. So, that was fairly good. 

Emma: Yeah. It’s gonna be nice. 

Elsie: I’m so nervous. 

Emma: Nah. It’s gonna be nice. It’s already arrange. It’s gonna be clear. It’s gonna be nice. 

Elsie: Aw. Effectively, I’m excited, and yeah, for anybody who has an opportunity to promote a house furnished, my recommendation is to go for it and do it. Positively communicate up if there are one or two issues that you just identical to love a lot that you already know should not replaceable. I’m not saying to promote like your favourite vintage factor or a household heirloom or one thing. However no, I do suppose it’s good to study the life lesson, that nearly every part is replaceable. And actually, you would purchase an entire new home of stuff in a weekend and it’s okay, it’s not that large of a deal. So I don’t know, I really feel like that’s a very good reminder that an important issues in our residence. It’s actually not, the books, books are wonderful, however actually it’s the recollections of studying them and making stuff, it doesn’t actually matter. If all of your books are gone, you may simply get extra.

Emma: Yeah. You may get extra and write new ones yearly, it’s magic.

Elsie: It’s magical and I wish to accumulate books until I die.

Emma: Yeah, identical new ones too. I really like shopping for new books as they arrive out. It’s a lot enjoyable.

Elsie: Sure. My pre-ordering is fairly aggressive proper now.

Emma: I really like pre-ordering as a result of then it’s like typically I type of forgot that I pre-ordered it after which it simply comes within the mail because the e-book comes out, and I’m like, sure, previous self has stunned future self and I’m so blissful. Then you definately like have the e-book proper because it comes out and it’s so cool. Okay, let’s do responsible pleasure, treasure. Do you’ve a responsible pleasure for us? 

Elsie: So my responsible pleasure treasure this time is Danny Loves Pasta and I don’t suppose I’ve talked about him on the podcast earlier than, have I? I don’t suppose so. 

Emma: I don’t suppose so. I’m not on the podcast. 

Elsie: So, initially, I simply wanna plug, Danny Loves Pasta’s cookbook, which releases on June twenty seventh. It’s a pasta cookbook. It’s a novelty, should you like, Rainbow Pasta, issues like that, cute, lovely. If that’s your type of factor like these movies on Instagram and TikTok are type of like my whole soul. And it simply brings me a lot pleasure. So it’s that kind of factor and anyway, he made a cookbook. It seems very lovely. It’s very rainbowy. However the different factor I needed to say about him is that he’s the explanation I rejoined TikTok. So I deleted my TikTok in precisely March of 2020 when the pandemic started, and I felt like as a mother, however working mother with two children at residence, the strain, I feel lots of people at the moment had been like, we’re staying residence. It’s best to blow up your TikTok and I used to be identical to, oh my God I can barely survive proper now. So I deleted my TikTok for 2 years and didn’t take a look at it in any respect or log in for 2 years. However then Keeley despatched me these, Danny Loves Pasta movies the place he was making Harry Potter home scarves pasta, and he received me to rejoin and I truly do take pleasure in TikTok once more now. So I really feel like I’ve to offer him credit score for that, that he did one thing so particular and joyful that he made an entire app that may be oftentimes poisonous and annoying. He made it joyful and a contented, great place.

Emma: They need to make it like a button in TikTok and Instagram the place like should you rejoin, you may put within the title of the one that impressed you to rejoin, after which they ship them 20 bucks or one thing, or 50 bucks. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? 

Elsie: Actually, yeah. I really feel prefer it was particular as a result of I didn’t suppose I used to be ever gonna rejoin. 

Emma: And you then noticed that Harry Potter pasta and also you’re like, properly, okay.

Elsie: I knew that there was a contented world on the market. Okay, what’s again yours? 

Emma: My responsible pleasure treasure is so random. I used to be exhibiting Elsie earlier than we began recording, however I discussed a number of episodes in the past about how I received hypnotized for not biting my nails and I’ve been doing nice with that, which is superior. And anyway, I lately purchased myself this cuticle oil and that’s my responsible pleasure treasure that I wanna speak to you about. So, this one is like $4 on Amazon. I can hyperlink it within the present notes, however principally what I like about it’s it’s a very good cuticle oil, I like that, but it surely’s actually small. It’s the dimensions of a pen so you may maintain it in your purse. I maintain mine on my desk so it’s formed like a pen, after which on one finish, it has a brush. It’s similar to should you ever noticed the dazzle stick that we talked about, how we clear our jewellery. It has a brush on one finish, so that you simply take the cap off after which it makes just a little clicking sound as you push the oil by means of the comb. I’m gonna do it for you. I don’t know should you can hear that, however, so it makes this little clicking sound after which the oil comes up by means of the comb and you then simply brush it in your cuticles and I find it irresistible. I feel it’s one thing to do. I imply, I really like the cuticle oil, however I feel it’s like the press sound.

Elsie: My cuticles are I feel that they’re naturally just a little bit above common, however they’re, so far as caring for them, I’d say it’s beneath common. So I can do higher, I may strive. Okay, so I suppose let’s go to a joke or a reality with Nova. Hey, Nova, this week, do you’ve a joke for us or a reality?

Nova: Joke. 

Elsie: Okay. 

Nova: What does a peanut go, like? 

Elsie: What does he go like?

Nova: When he tells a joke. 

Elsie: What? 

Nova: He goes nuts. 

Elsie: Oh, that’s a very good one. That’s superb. 

Emma: Thanks a lot for listening. You possibly can submit any questions, feedback, or should you simply wanna write us and be candy, we get these lots and so they typically make me cry. And you’ll write us at or you may name and go away us a voicemail of questions. And that’s 417-893-0011. We’ll be again subsequent week with suggestions for a way you are able to do all of it.
