While we’re here awaiting the new incoming granddaughter, we’ve been helping Corey and Amanda with their newly acquired fixer upper house that they’ve just bought. This house needs some serious repairs, but for the price they paid, the repairs will be worth it in the long run. For some reason, the extreme makeover the house needs is taking longer than the hour renovations we see on TV.
Once again, I’ve been wielding a paintbrush and as much as I dislike painting, I’ve actually been able to get more paint on the walls than myself.
The house was built in the early 60’s and the owners had a love affair with wallpaper. I’ve found I dislike wallpaper even more that painting. I spent a couple of hours removing (pulling) wallpaper from one room and still have to go back and scrub off all the glue before I can repaint the walls. I’m thinking there must be a special place of punishment in the afterlife for the inventor of wallpaper. If not, there should be. ;c)
Amongst all the wallpaper and paint, we’ve been challenged of working around a golden retriever and two year old Anabelle who loves to help.
It’s been a long day. Motrin has been consumed and we’re taking tomorrow off to rest, pick up some new batteries for the Journey, rest, install the batteries, and rest. Did I mention we’re going to rest before picking up those paintbrushes again on Wednesday?
Of course, if DIL Amanda goes into labor, all bets are off! :c)
