So, this past week has felt like a month. I was off of work last Monday for Labor Day. It's so rare that I get a day off of work, that I just don't know what to do with my time. I plan for weekends, but not for days off. So, what did I do? I started the project from HELL! I decided to re-paint my bedroom. It was off to Lowe's to get paint and supplies. Got home and the project was started. I had NO idea how long this was going to take. Luckily, I have a very eager roommate who wanted to help.
So, we got most of the trim taped up on Monday, got plastic taped to the floor, and got one coat of paint on one side of the room. Then, magically, that boring day off was gone.
Tuesday, I worked all day, then it was back home to get started again. I realized there was a wall in my room that had two holes in it. Those holes were there when I bought the place, and was so puzzling, because you can tell that something had been installed there, but no clue what. I decided that it would be stupid to do all of this re-painting, but leave those two stupid holes. Off to Lowe's again, for a piece of drywall and supplies. By the time the new piece of wall was up, it was quitting time again.
Wednesday, PROGRESS! Finished getting the first coat on the rest of the room, got the second coat on the other half of the room that was done before.
Thursday, Finished with the second coat on the rest of the room, and did some touch-up.
Friday, worked all day, took the evening off to go to the Festival, where I walked my a$$ off and watched my favorite local band perform.
Saturday, it was back on it. Got the first & second coats of trim done on half of the room (the half where the bed goes, because I was so ready to sleep in MY bed again). Made plans to finish the entire room on Sunday.
SATURDAY NIGHT - bomb was dropped on me! I got a visit from my brother-in-law. He informed me that tomorrow, the day I was gonna finish my room, we had to split wood for both his house and mine for the winter. Well, there goes my plans for finishing up on Sunday. I guess I'll have to do it Monday.
Sunday, split / hauled the stupid wood, that I know I'll be thankful for this winter, when everybody's fussing about high heat bills, and I'm heating my entire house with wood for free! So, I guess it's back to work on my room tomorrow!
Monday - 3:30am: Puking, puking, and more puking. This goes on until Monday evening around 8:00. So, no work on the bedroom :(
Today - I really, really, hope I can get more done on my room this evening after work. If not, I'm throwing in the towel and hiring a painter to finish!!
Thanks to everybody who read my rant! Hope you all have a great day!
