My husband and I spent the month of July painting the interior of our house. It’s relatively small 3-bedroom home, so when we got the quotes to have it professionally painted, I said (in my ignorance), “We can paint ourselves!”
…..Hahahahaha <laughing hysterically>….
The last time we painted was about…oh, thirty years ago, so I had forgotten what a tough job it is, especially getting into those nook-and-cranny spots, like above the kitchen cabinets! Not to mention the strength it takes to roll paint onto a ceiling!
But we kept at it. Finally, after a month of working together every weekend, and me every day (I had the summer off), plus some help from our kids, we cleaned the last of the brushes and stowed away the unused paint. It was messy work, and I can still see paint-colored strands if I examine my hair closely! But we’re really happy with the results.
On the even brighter side, my husband and I are still married <grin>, and I lost five pounds!
On the writing side, for those who like scary stories, and who like to hold an actual book in their hands, I’m excited to announce a new print version of three of my previously published stories. I’ve titled the collection Murder Times 3. (Catchy, or no?) 🙂
Murder Times 3!
