Will it NEVER end??

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.

Yes, it will end. And then you can look back and see that it was well worth, especially when it is time to put it on the market. Yes, I will be down on Monday barring any unforeseem happenings. I, too, am ready for some R&R even though mine is not from the kind of work you have been doing. It is just from "old age."

Got to get ready for "work." Or as we prefer to say at the hospital, "Play." What else do you call a job that you don't get paid for and you absolutely love?

Have a good paint day.

Love you,

Oh, I just had another thought. You know how my mind goes wild when I just let it. You had mentioned somehting about the tern "stepwife." You know I am one of those too, but I got to thinking. Evidently, we are stepwives because the "other" wife thought her catch not good enough to keep so she threw him back in the water. Sure are glad we are good fishers. Anyway, my term as stepwife has exceeded first wife's term ten times. How about your?
Like I said, it is just a thought -:)

haha Again, Mom, you and I have such similar thoughts!! Almost 16 happy years trumps 10 years any day.

You know you CAN come down Sunday afternoon if you want. :)

I love my Crimson Tide!
