My daughter Abi (AKA Glitterfairy, previously Raptormelon) and I have been at these walls since after breakfast. Actually, I started washing them last night during commercial breaks while watching Knight and Day, a fun action comedy. I was up till midnight. I woke around 8, to the smell of coffee - yay! And after coffee and a good breakfast, I continued to wash the walls while Abi went and tended to some other business. We started painting after we had lunch, some time after noon. Abi is leery of ladders, so I've been the one hauling myself up to do the cutting by the ceiling, above windows and doors, and where we can't reach. We've kept the kids upstairs, and taken little breaks now and then. Since neither of us felt like cooking, and most deliveries didn't appeal to us, Abi ordered from Appleby's and I went and picked it up. After dinner, I took my other half meloxicam, because the half this morning just isn't doing it for me for all the punishment I'm giving to hips and knees. I want to be able to sleep tonight.
But I am sure I could not have done this several months and 23 pounds ago!
