Volunteers? Anyone?

I know you are all dying for an update on the home improvements.

Unfortunately, I have very little progress to report.

The trim in the master bedroom is almost done.

The livingroom is primed and ready to be painted. As soon as I pick a color. And do the second coat of ceiling paint. Which means fixing the spot where all the paint peeled off. I am sooo looking forward to messing around with the sand.

The kitchen walls have one coat of primer. But we're thinking two might be required.

We're meeting with the carpet people this afternoon to pick a flavor. But we can't schedule to have it installed until the walls, ceiling, and trim get painted. Which means we have to pull up the old carpet. Gak.

The dumpster is almost full and will probably need to be pulled soon. Because we got plenty more where that came from. Like the old carpet, for example.

Someone hit the mailbox and broke off the door. Because I really needed one more thing to deal with. (I suspect the across the street neighbors.)

Oh yeah, and why does primer smell so much worse than paint?

But at least I have tomorrow off. I barely know where to start. Not that it matters because I'm sure I will accomplish practically nothing. As usual.
