What I'm up to...

... I won't say 5'7" either, since I'm starting to get the old age shrinking thing happening and it's depressing.

Everyone keeps asking me what's going on at Scotty's house. Scotty had carpal tunnel surgery on one hand, that pretty much put him out of commission for a while. So I finally started on the guest bedroom. Here's the before...

I hate to say it but right now it looks a bit worse than this! :-) There was wallpaper, the vinyl front came right off, and the back stayed on, and then two layers of wallpaper backing under that, and that white paint on the bottom, also had wallpaper backing under it. So it took a while to strip it all off. And it was the kind of job that you would rather do anything else... see an end table out at the curb while leaving Scottys and call him at the end of the block to go over there and get it, so I can paint and glaze it!

Going out to lunch, bargain shopping, cleaning carpets, movies, baking, cleaning my desk, and working on some webpages for people.

Like Victor, Renee's honey.

Like Mags...

Stuff to sell on Cafepress... actually sold a t-shirt of this already. :-)

Then I would go and do another half wall of wallpaper stripping, find something else to do. When finally finished stripping and swearing, then I had to caulk, and then accidently used silicone when I ran out of Latex caulk, and had to figure out how to paint over that... google is a wonderful thing. Scotty is anxious for painting to be done (he's not allowed to paint, he paints like Huck Finn, it's everywhere except where it's suppose to be) so he can start making a headboard.
This one!

...but not green! So soon as I finish painting the room, and the new closets, he can build the headboard in there. Which he needed a router for, so he bought a router and some bits, lots of bits!

You know what this means?

Crown molding!

He can make crown molding now cheap!

Do you know what that means?

I'm going to start putting crown molding in my bedrooms and baths. That's about it, the floor plan is too open on the bottom floor for crown molding, except the half bath. That's the first room to be done. :-)

The oldest is home for Spring Break this week, unfortunetly the youngest is not off the same week. All are happy and healthy, with the exception of a few colds, sinus troubles, but nothing major. Like I always say...

Boring is Good!
