I’ve been in a funk the last few days. I’m bored of it, so I’m climbing out.
Yesterday I prepped the last part of the living room for painting. It was a bit much. I basically had a ton of pictures and clocks stuck all over the place. When I didn’t know where to put something, I was just putting in a nail and hanging everything near my desk.
Now that it’s all clear, I’m thinking maybe it was contributing to the chaos in my head.
This is where I left it last night:
I was a little excited, because this represents the very last of the nasty beige blah in this house. Oh, wait, that’s not true. I still have 2 closets that need doing. But for areas I have to look at all the time, this gross soul sucking color is on its way out.
All those white spots were where something was at one time hanging. That’s a lot of chaos!
This morning after the Hubs left for work, I got right to painting.
Yes, I was working around all those obstacles! I think that is what took so long to get this done.
But done it is!
It’s like a big fat sigh of relief.
Now I’m weighing the options available for putting this back together. We’ve been kicking around some ideas of moving back into the guest room, and moving other furniture here and there. I kinda would prefer the dining room, but it’s pretty packed in there at present. I think staying here is my best option for the time being.
There are 4 outlets and 2 switches left to swap out, and that is the end of that chore.
While I was painting, I got a call from the ever-popular Anisha. It’s funny, in my head, I was composing my email to the owner of the company when my phone rang. How’s that for burning ears?
She reported the 3 items I’m waiting for are in. Only 10 weeks after they were due. We have set up an appointment for the 28th for someone to come and install 2 screens and fix the balance on the kitchen window – which means I’ll be able to open it by myself whenever I want and I won’t need a stick jammed into the frame to keep it open.
It’s the little things.
If this happens, the whole window ordeal will have only taken 62 weeks from order to completion. That has to be some sort of record someone is proud of!
So, to recap, next Tuesday I have the electrician and the window guy on site. I’m just waiting for Brandon to let me know Tuesday’s his only open day for months. I’ll have the trade trifecta! I actually hope he doesn’t do this, the chaos will be too great!
I almost forgot! We finished the AC in the shed. When I say “we” I mean the Hubs. I could not reach the top of it, so he had to do my part (caulk). But that is one more project off the list:
Super anti-climactic, right? But whatever, it was on the list and now it’s not.
Last but not least, I hung a stained glass dragonfly on my slider the other day. The tail is about 4 feet off the floor. Mayhem wanted that thing so badly!
So far, it’s still hanging there, but he has actually been able to touch it a few times so far. I am sure one day he will manage to get it to fall.
