I've been bitten by the remodeling bug! HELP!!!

Thanks to SG for reminding me to update my blog! I'm still alive, just covered in paint. I have paint in my hair, under my nails, and I think on my contact lenses, which would explain the spots I see everywhere.

I'd intended to let the remodeling go until winter. I need to finish putting up garden produce. I need to put the garden to bed. I need to cut, haul, and split at least three more cords of firewood. And yet, I just couldn't help myself. I couldn't stand it another minute, and an approaching visit from family kicked everything into overdrive.

My plan had been to do one room per month over the winter, and hopefully have them all done by spring. Well....I started Monday. I've painted the laundry room, the hallway, and I've just started the kitchen. As soon as that is done, I'll start on the master bath. If I don't have a major breakdown or go insane from the paint fumes, I may move on to Little Sis' room.

Her room will be a nightmare. I have to clean out the closet and sort out one bajillion toys, most of which will be passed on to the grandkids. Then once the painting is done and the room is still in chaos, I'll put down the new flooring. After that, I may just lay in the floor and sleep for a month.

Oy, I'm babbling. I should go to bed now, or at least finish up the kitchen ceiling and scrape the paint off my contacts.

Geez, I wish I had half your gusto. I've been meaning to paint my oldest daughter's room for a couple of years now. It's at least painted with primer.

I wish I had your motivation. I need to paint but the living and dining rooms are covered in wallpaper that's at least 50 years old. Plus my walls are blocked by 2 bookcases, 3 china hutches, sofa, big tv stand, 2 mini bars, 2 servers, and a corner curio. If I can figure out how to move everything away from the walls and keep the dogs under conrtol when I paint, i'd paint. Gheez... btw, I found u through SG

Vamp, primer is good. lol At least it's a neutral color to paint over.

Preston, Welcome! I've been meaning to check out your blog (saw your comments at SG's page). Glad you stopped by!
