The house got two and a half rooms painted today. We haven’t done trim yet in them, but did most of the walls. We painted the dining room and most of the kitchen a light yellow color. They had them painted pink. We got the girls’ room painted, a dark pink on the bottom and a very light pink at the top. Now we need to get a border to put in the middle. I bought the paint for James’s room, but we didn’t get to it this time. Maybe next time. All the trim is going to be done in antique white. I didn’t finish the kitchen because I couldn’t reach over the counter very well. I think Jeremy is going to have to finish it, plus it has tall ceilings so we need to borrow a ladder to reach the top 3 feet of the walls.
Jeremy did the stair railing on the mid-landing and from there on up to the second floor. He only has to finish the landing up there. It looks really good, much better than it had before.
He’ll have plenty of time to work on the house this next week. My Dad is taking me on vacation. For my 30th birthday back in September, he got me a cruise. Well, because of all the hurricanes, it was cancelled the first time we scheduled it in October, so we rescheduled it for this week. At the time, we didn’t know it would also be right after buying a house. Jeremy and I hadn’t even started looking when my Dad had to reschedule. All I knew was that the kids’ ballet and drama was off this next week for Spring Break, so it would be okay for me to be gone. My mom is taking the kids down to Jill’s house in St. Louis for the week. Jeremy has work, so he’s going to stay at the house and when he’s not doing his regular work, he’ll be doing house stuff. Poor boy. He’ll need a vacation when we get back.
Anyway, I’ll be gone for a little while. I’ll see you all when I come back and I’ll give a BIG update. Both on what I did and how much Jeremy did on the house while I was gone. See you all later!!
