It only took 6 years

by Jodifur on October 23, 2007

I hired a painter. To paint my house. My whole house. I still think this is great idea, but where the hell am I putting all the stuff that needs to be moved while they paint? And when am I finding the time to pack it all up. And no tivo, for 3 days.
The color, latte, which is perfect for my Starbucks addiction.
But still, paint.
Now if only I can convince Doug we can afford to move. Half of our crap is already going to be packed anyway.

You’re painting the whole house latte? Or your tv room?

And just how are you going to live without the tivo??? You may be able to ask the painter to just move the tivo/tv/etc to the middle of the room and tarp over it. That’s what my dad did when he painted our house.

Is it the whole house? We did it ourselves and I thought we might get divorced.

1. That is the exact color of my office at work – a color *I* picked out I might add.

2. I am soooo jealous of you hiring painters. I *hate* painting. Not to mention, I get paint *EVERYWHERE.*

P.S. The color was called “Brown Bag” in whatever brand we used, LOL.

Cool! We are starting to think about moving too. Sometimes you just need that kick start :-). Great color!

That’s a great color. We’re in a rental, but I sometimes grab paint swatches for the day we’ll need them. Because I’m an optimist like that. Mike calls it crazy.

I feel better knowing that I still have three years to go before my house will be painted.
