You know how most people have Visions of Sugarplums dancing in their heads around Christmastime? I have visions of paint rollers and stir sticks.
In case you ever happen to buy a house that is painted ORANGE and PINK on the weekend before Christmas, let me explain precisely what you will be doing on your day off, from dawn till dusk:
Yep. We picked colors on Christmas Eve, bought a shopping-cart full of paint cans, and spent the entire holiday painting like crazy.
This is only about 1/3 of the paint.
Two things have occurred as a result of this experience. First, I am officially Queen of the Painter's Tape. Second (and resultingly), I have Painter's Shoulder and cannot lift my right arm over my head anymore.
I'm saving the big reveal for later, to surprise you (and also because we aren't quite finished yet), but suffice to say, its looking more like a home every day we are here.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go ice my shoulder. (Appliances get delivered tomorrow!)
