Today we got up early, got ready, and joined the land of the living. It is Paul's first day of only one job, home-by-four, teacher mcteacherson and it started bright and early this morning. Up until now it's been second shift, school in the off-time, and two very tired-all-the-time parents. It is made all the sweeter since we wrapped up the big basement clean up and the unearthing of the garage last week. The list gets longer all the time (I'm going to the paint store this afternoon) but over the years the do-or-die projects are becoming fewer and farther between. I think. We'll see.
On the short list was painting and reconfiguring some bookshelves which were not being used to their potential. Also on the short list was getting some sort of china cabinet or hutch for the kitchen-- two birds down with one can of paint and a curtain rod. I bought the fabric ages ago from SCRAP, or somewhere like it.
The upstairs hallway shelf came from Mariko and was actually a dark brown upper shelf taken from a hutch. This is not the only thing that has come from the Eggplant or her mother recently but my camera is missing today, so those things will have to wait. Next up: painting the living room-- hah! That is a big job. Scratch that whole list is almost done thing. That was lame.
