I've said before, I love the rain. But unfortunatly it doesn't like me. My arthritis is kicking my butt today. My joints are all swollen, sadly Girly has it too.It must be hereditary I guess. I hate it when she wants me to dress her because her little baby hands can't get the buttons. It sucks because I know how much it bothers me. So I have to get three people dressed. I went and did my grocery run anyways, because we needed veggies and butter, and of course Warsteiner to get through the weekend:P I figured I'd goof off while waiting for my RX to fill and scoped the paint rejects. I found some fab green but unfortunatly there was'nt enough to do my living room, and it was flat, so a definite PG no go. He MUST have semigloss in the living room if we are going to paint it. I talked him down from the DARKGLOSSNOWAY TO SEE MARKINGS!!!ledge to a reasonable colour level, and semi gloss. I also found a cutesy pink colour called cherry soda, 4 gallons, washable but flat:P my true paint love. I bought it, 20 buck for 4 gallons. Girly's peals of happiness are already ringing in my ears and she's not even home yet.
^note above pinkness(and reasons the wall needs painting)^Only one thing stands in my way now....I have never in my life painted a room. sure I've done trims, and botched a table or two, but a whole room! nope. I know I'm supposed to wash the walls first, and lay down paper( which I got). other than that, I dunno. The walls are already painted with a matte, so I think I won't have to prime or buff them. But I don't think I can just slap it on there willy nilly, surely it's not THAT simple...Is it? anyone have a painting for dummies book? I know I should have looked into this before getting the stuff, but painting is something I REALLY wanted to do since I bought this place. egg, white and buff don't do it for me. For now since it's raining I have a reprive, I know that much, paint+ rain = forever to dry. For now I will be content to go colour my hair, and wait for the Physics Guy on the big stuff. I also have a slipper to do, and dishes. I finished my poncho last night, and Now am doing the knitpicky do I want to add anything, is it right? perfectionism snit that I do with all my finished work. I think though that I am done. what do you think?
