I was really eager to get things painted so that we could work on the trim and other miscellaneous tasks so we could get the washer and dryer back and running. Chris applied the texture last week
I had every intention of getting the room primed and painted this past weekend while Chris was out of town. And while I did get things primed I could not find the paint for the life of me. Of course, I didn't look in any of our 5 gallon buckets, which is where Chris found it as soon as he got home, damnit! Whenever we get more than one gallon of paint, we ALWAYS mix it together in a 5 gallon bucket so there are no slight color variations by gallon. Normally when we're done painting, we pour the leftover back into one of the gallon containers and put it in the attic, labeled, for storage. But, of course we weren't DONE with this project when we painted the first half of the room (a year ago...), so we left it in a 5 gallon bucket and out of habit I only thought to look at the gallons we had. DAMNIT!
Then I wanted to get it painted earlier this week, but I hurt my back and have been relatively out of commission, booo. I hurt it pretty badly (had to go to the hospital, stay home for a couple days) when I was in high school while playing soccer and every once in a while I do something that upsets it and it is not comfortable at all.
So that's why here we are on Wednesday with a room still only primed
Chris was an all-star though and started getting some trim installed despite my non-painting...
We've still got baseboard, door casing, door trim, ughhhhhh. The good news is that my dad and Wendy's new house is only 15 minutes away and they have a working washer and dryer, so I pulled the old college student move and brought over 3 loads of our laundry and one of Zoe's earlier this week :) Thanks parents! :)
The good news? My back is feeling a lot better and it's on my to do list today to get that room painted! Actually, it's next on my to do list, so I should probably get the hell of this computer and get to painting!
