Dog chewed pen.  He's fine...the floor?  Less fine...we need to move.

WhatWouldJohnCrichtonDo?

Oooh, yikes! Sorry to see that! I've never tried it, but my mom swears by rubbing alcohol to remove ink from lots of different things. I guess you'd have to be careful on wood floors to keep it from drying out the wood or harming the finish. Whatever you try, good luck. :my_smile:

Yup...our dog did the same....but it was carpet...not flooring which was worse....I think we shampooed the daylights out of that carpet!

Yes!  Kinda like putting their doggy paw imprint in freshly poured cement -- forever after you'll remember them by it...  :face_dog:

What I have tried so far is prayer, ignoring it, distracting myself by steam cleaning the stove top while listening to a documentary on all the things that can kill you inside a Tudor home, and reorganizing the linen closet while listening to a documentary on all the things that can kill you inside a Victorian home, washing my kitchen and bathroom floors while listening to all the things that can kill you inside an Edwardian home, and posting here.

None of those things have worked - I'm surprised, too.

tbh if I could I'd throw and area rug over and forget it because that's the kind of lazy slack-ass that I am...but it's a couple feet from the top of the stairs and not exactly the place I want to put something to trip over.

Tomorrow I'm going to try mineral spirits and super fine grade steel wool which will probably result in ruining it completely.

Oh my floors are so full of character they are going to start writing character booklets for Gothard.  (Not really - even my floors hate him.)

I saw one of those diy home shows once and a couple was purposely ruining the finish on a perfectly good hardwood floor.  They called it distressing the wood so it looked battered and lived in.  I told my husband were going to save money on refinishing the floors and just tell people were distressed the on purpose :)

Burning the house down is the only solution I can see.

I would try napping then chocolate and wine - be sure to do it in that order or I doubt it will work.

If you must, but even after a few gallons of iced tea I think you will still be able to see that ink...

So reading some mild things could work I tried expecting no results...

but YAY!!  Little dish soap and SOS pad with very light pressure and voila!  

Thanks!

Burning the house down would have looked cooler. I'm just saying.

Yeah, but this was easier and has the added bonus of not leaving my family homeless.  

I'd hate to disappoint you.  Though I recall you refusing to burn your house down at my suggestion when you had some kind of imaginary imposter-bee threatening you.

But here you go - one house burning,,,

I did nothing of the sort! I was ready, willing, but not able to burn the house down. I couldn't get out because impostor bees everywhere, and I didn't want to burn the joint to the ground with me in it! Had I come home to the impostor bees, I would have burned the joint to the ground with no regrets.

I see you  already solved. I was going to suggest that you tried with an eraser. It works very well when my toddler decides to to add artsy decorations on wooden surfaces, unfortunately it doesn't work on the walls :(

I can't believe it came out that easily, I'm really surprised.  Yay for your floors!

i was stunned - when it came up so fast I did a double take and felt stupid for making it a bigger job in my head.

it was a gel pen and even though I'm not a colorist maybe the collective gel pen love of FJ worked some magic. :)

When my youngest was 4 we took a nap together one afternoon while the other kids were in school.  I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt and woke up to the horror of finding my legs and arms covered in drawings of pirate things.  

In black sharpie.

apparently he needed less of a nap than I did and woke up before me and found drawing on me a fun activity.  Maybe I should have tried dish soap and SOS on my skin back then.

The magic eraser?  That always worked great on my walls when my kids were little...but it was so wearing in the paint I hated to use it.

I was telling my other half about your floor debacle and he was all man about it and said "well yeah, the floor has a finish on it that you can just buff out easily enough...."  Me: eyeroll.  He just doesn't get the drama involved here, clearly.

      I think he’s barking up the wrong tree. This is a small town and many people offer to help with all sorts of things but most people suggested therapy and respite care through insurance and he didn’t get anything but likes and one suggestion of someone’s car dealership contact for the 15 person passenger van request. he also posted about looking for odd jobs… can’t figure out if he works a full time job or what 🤷🏻‍♀️

      Where I life the county mental health provide some respite services for a child with an autism diagnosis. He should start at the department of aging to register his child.

      February is about to begin, and I have one wish. I want Gary to post complaining about how people care more about the "Supper Bowel" than they do about God and hell.

      You have twelve days, Gary. Pretty please?

      I think she's keeping wall up because she sees us as possibly wanting to take away her faith. Which she is very protective of. So she's a bit cautious about us.

      When I was first really starting my recovery/deprogramming there were a lot of people who wanted me to abandon faith altogether. Friends, a therapist, internet strangers. It didn’t matter that it ultimately wasn’t a solution for a number of reasons, it felt like an easy answer for people. There are plenty of reasons why people don’t believe, or choose to stop believing. I have my reasons for maintaining my faith. I don’t feel the need to advertise or “recruit” but there are some nonbelievers that use the same tactics they shame religious people for. 
       

      I’ve gotten pretty used to ignoring certain topics/posters/discussions around here. But there are definitely moments that are really uncomfortable. Part of why I post so irregularly.

      I read the book. TL, DR: Gothard is a creep and a false prophet. The one anecdote that I found surprising was that the older Duggar girls once were hanging around at the mall and they tried on a blond wig and said “You’re ready for headquarters!” meaning that Gothard would find it hot 🤢

      The fact that literally everyone knew Gothard’s type and did fuck all about it is so typical but still so disturbing.
