Paint Misbehavin'

It was supposed to be an easy weekend task: paint six rooms in our new house. Four hours on Saturday and then six hours on Sunday and only two rooms are complete! Why the hell isn't it like it is on TV; reveal the paint color, dab a little on the wall, fast-forward motion and the room is perfectly painted?

Painting is hard ass work. It really is. I went in naively thinking that since I actually cared about the place, I would enjoy it more. To a small degree, it does feel better doing something for something you will enjoy. But hard ass work is still hard ass. So things are moving a little slower than anticipated. This weekend we will continue our painting expedition, as we attempt to conquer the Family Room, Living Room, and Entry Plaza. It won't be an easy task, but hopefully a few minions will join us in our fight. We will also be moving in a few things too!

Take a gander at some of these shots of us goofing around.
