All those mundane tasks that weren’t worth mentioning? Well, the picture to the left is one of them. Let’s see…so far I have painted 2 rooms and a closet twice (hated the color), guest room, took down the paneling and painted my artroom, painted 12 doors front and back, the garage front and the fronts of the windows. I can’t tell you how sick I am of painting. I have sanded some of my fingernails off and possibly a top layer of skin…So Bob Villa I ain’t. If you were wondering why we are doing so much work so soon? Well, it’s because we are putting the house up for sale.
David got a job (which he started Monday) in Danville. So between now and summer we’ll be preparing to move there. We are from near that area, so it’s no stranger to us. I guess what I’m most happy with is that David won’t have to travel. Although I was use to him traveling, It will be great knowing that he’ll be home every night. The only thing I am really worried about is that I really want Alana to finish her 8th grade year at the school that she attends now. Since she’ll be transitioning into high school in the fall, it would be a good to wait until summer. But I guess we’ll let everything fall where it may.
I think this move is a good thing, but as we work on the house, we are finding that with a little… no… alot of work and updating, it’s really pretty. I can’t believe the transformation. At least I’ll get to enjoy it a little while before we have to hand it over to a realtor.
I hear my drawing board calling to me late at night…saying, “Hey, pick me up! Quit ignoring me!” I don’t know how much more I can avoid him. Yeah, My drawing board is a he! (Hubba Hubba!) So, I have a bit more work to do over the weekend, but I am hoping to get squeeze some art in next week.
Be Well and Happy!
