The King is out of town
for 4 days. 4 days free... free
to do a project.
I had delusions of grandeur,
with one project. Tearing the
wall of the kitchen.. actually
ending up two walls.. Leaving
the beams. But downsizing one
to a counter..
But decided against that, as I could
get into a lot more trouble than
I have ever gotten into. Not that has
scared me in the past, but there
is a limit, you know...Not only dealing
with the King who would come home
to mess, but to more money than I
have, to straighten it out.
Kind of like the front porch. I had
been after him to fix the stairs. Slowly
they were getting weaker, and I knew
someone would get hurt on them. Most
likely him, as he has a clumsy side to him.
Well, that project ended up with a head
ache in a half. Because I took off the stairs,
and figure then he would fix it. But to our
horror, it turns out the wood was rotted,
after years of rain, snow and etc. So $500
and 4 or 5 days later we had a new porch.
Not exactly what I had in mind. Seems most
of our projects start at $500. The porch, the
new window (add another $200 for extras, as
we installed it) and for the house paint and supplies.
Say nothing about all of our labor...
So what do I do this week... let me see.
I could finish painting the trim on the garage.
But I did some the other day and remembered,
that I hate brush painting.
I could paint the kitchen orange and white.
That would push the replacement of the metal
cupboards, with the wooden ones, we
bought at the yard sale, in to service.
Or, I could paint the living room. That would
be by roller... I could get the grandson to help
me prep. And then move all the stuff around.
Hummm, so much to do, so little time.
