This weekend we finally began painting! My friend Jamie flew in from Chicago and I put her right to work. For some reason, Greg recommended that we start with closets...hm. We didn't do any work Saturday because Jamie's husband Jimmy came down from where he had been working in Long Island and we figured we shouldn't treat them like visitors rather than indentured servants. We walked from our house to Pat's for cheesesteaks. On the way there, we passed a store selling butt pads. They looked like underwear with padding in them, I guess to enhance one's derierre. Lovely.
Sunday we brought in Dave, Erin, Dennis and Barb.
We accomplished quite a bit: we painted the shelves in the closets, primed the office walls and ceiling, and primed the bedroom walls and ceiling.
Even though it's just primer, it already makes the place look much more pulled together.
