Friday, What can kim accomplish when she is irritated?

     Yesterday was a cluster in so many ways, but is actually put a bee in my bonnet and made me move.  I went to the chiropractor for my back and it helped.  I am a little stiff and sore today but nothing like last week.  I had so much to do and so many plans and everything derailed.

     I was desperate to get down to the paint store to get another can of paint.  I didn't get to the painting until about 2:30 due to us picking up our friends mom.  I was able to use up the bottom of two cans of oil based enamel.  Then friend's  stopped by which was nice, and then our neighbor (the one who lost both legs, one in Vietnam and finally the other a few years ago) Stopped by with pants he had to have tomorrow to go up to Spokane to the doctor.  It was 4:30 when I finally was able to get to the paint store, but no, got a call from the Veteran's home that my mother was ready to leave.  That made me laugh.
I painted this fireplace, and taped it to save money.

     I decided to go to the paint store as I was only a block away, but when I got there is was super busy and I did not want my friend's mom waiting too long, so I just left my order and went a picked her up.  I was concerned because her daughter would not be home until after 7 and I knew she was hungry, this meant that she would have to find something to eat and she really should not be in the kitchen.  So I asked her if she wanted to get a sandwich or a burger?  I was so tickled when she got this huge smile on her face and wanted to go to Wendy's.  That was my mom's favorite place to go.  She ordered exactly what mom used to order and it was so cute. I got her home and then back to the paint store.  It was now 6:00 and I had my Lil sis picking me up for dinner. So a race home to change out of paint clothes.  We had a nice time and I so enjoyed my time with her.  (Hubs was at rehearsal)
This poor piano gets shoved around all corners of the room.

     Then home to finally paint, it was 8p.m.  Got the paint clothes on and remembered Clem's pants.  Hurried and hemmed those and walked them over, then had to visit for a minute (Clem can talk more than me, ask Sluggy I can talk)  Back to the paint by 8:30 and I painted all the trim that was left in one hour.  I was delighted and pi$$ed.  I kept telling myself I should have done this myself, but then With my back going out directly related to painting doors (the doctor showed me) I knew I could not have done the whole thing.  But it does prove that my painter is slow. Today he can give everything a second coat and tomorrow he can do all the caulking.  He will be out of here. Hallelujah.
Pockets doors to dining room.

     I think by Sunday I might have some of my house back.  I can hardly wait.

     Today, I have to get a wedding dress hemmed and an army jacket altered and two pillows done among other things.  No messing around today, I am on a roll.  Now if everyone would just leave me alone. I will be able to sew and paint later.  There is  so much oil based trim in this house.  (  9 doors, plus built ins and fireplace all the crown molding and foot boards, beautiful unless you have to paint it:))

    Slug's remember the notebook you gave me?  It is true.....

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.



  1. You? Quiet as a church mouse.*snort*

  2. My goodness you were one busy woman. I got tired just reading about your Hope the stiffness goes away fast.

    1. It is still sore but better every day and I return to doctor on Monday.

  3. The millwork around the doors and those bullseye corner blocks are beautiful and harder to paint than most door facings. What was wrong with your back? Pulled muscle?

    1. I have a slight scoliosis and is pulls vertebrae out of alignment. I just have to be careful.
