paint and repaint

So we are in the throes of painting.
Heaven help us all.

Four rooms were painted.
I hated two of them.

Made DH repaint one.
The other is too big and too much of a project to get repainted this week.
But it is driving me nuts!

We are having new carpet installed on Thursday, so we thought it would be a good idea to paint those rooms before we move and before we have new carpet to contend with. But this concept has just made me panicky and crazy. I should have just left well enough alone.

Besides, we have bigger fish to fry right now. Like 103 degree fevers all around. The nurse let me know today that yes, that "fever thing" is going around. I told her, "Really? Well can we move that to next week, cause that "fever thing" is just not really convenient right now."
But they can't help it, so we got out the blankies, and vaporizors, and tylenol, and juice. Poor bubbies.

As for the kitties, they are not impressed with the disruption going on. Our Old Timer has seen this before and keeps giving me That Look every time a box is taped. He knows what is coming, and he doesn't like it. Little does he know that he will be getting deluxe accomodations this time around.

The weather keeps dipping, which works against us. There seems to be no end in sight. I hope our moving team loves us as much as they say they do, because we seem to be asking a lot considering. We'll see how many come up with some urgent last minute plans to be somewhere else (warm).

So there you have it. Week one of homeownership. And I don't even live there yet.
Can't wait to see what the next week brings.

Would this be a bad time to ask you to babysit June for Kelli's birthday???
