I need to do at least three loads of laundry today and run a load to Lil sis's. I also think I will try and get the ironing done as it is piling up terribly and it gives me an excuse to watch crap TV. :)
I purchased a ham on mark down this week and I plan on cooking that tomorrow for Sunday dinner, so I foresee a week of ham dishes and soups. Yum. Plus I will freeze some of it for later.
I certainly wish I had the money to hire a whole paint crew and get this done faster. I would like to just not do any of it myself. I find painting nerve racking and tedious. I move quickly and having to slow down and be meticulous is irritating to me. But if it saves me money and I can do it and I will. Trust me helping with the painting is saving me $40.00 an hour.

It has really been a blessing to have mom's room waiting for carpet. At first I was a little miffed that I had to wait until the 29th to have this room finished, but having a place to paint all the things that needed painted is great. You have to have the room above 50 degrees for oil paint to dry and we would have had to do this in the garage and put out space heaters. Also the car would have had to be outside and that would have been one other thing for hubs to whine about. I guess I need to count my blessings and not be so impatient.
Well I have my day planned;
6. get the ironing done
7. finish taping tile in master bedroom
8. scrub master bedroom shower
9. paint tiles in master bedroom
Don't know if I will get it all done, but I will certainly get something done. Do any of you try to do things yourself to save money? I mean house projects like this?
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
