John swears it won't, but I swear it will. Just not as soon as we'd like! We have just finished the first coat of paint on the living room walls, and it looks pretty darn good! I'll do the second coat and the baseboards tomorrow. When John gets home, he'll replace all the outlets and switches. Except for the floor being redone, we'll be finished with the living room. Then, we'll start on the dining room. Not until AFTER a little R&R, though!! Hopefully, before the summer is over, we'll get an estimate on having the hardwood floors redone in the living room, dining room, and hallway, and maybe we'll even get that done before school starts back.
I'm having my jewelry party Tuesday night. Mom is coming down for it, but I'm not sure yet if she'll be here Monday or Tuesday. I hope Monday (um hum--Mom, I know you're reading this! haha) I had hoped to have the dining room painted before the party, but...Unless Norm and his crew from This Old House show up, I don't think that's gonna happen.
It's late (for me, anyway) and I'm hot, stinky, and sore, so I'm going to go take a nice, long, hot shower and call it a night.
