Well, after a 24 hour marathon session, my living room and hallway trim and pilllars are all painted. It was craziness, but a lot of fun. I dropped the kids off at Grandma and Grandpa's on Friday afternoon. Came back, met with my accountability partner, prayed, and then I made her help me tape the walls. :-) She had to leave, but my friend Jenny came by to help. It was just Jenny and me on Friday night and it took us 4 hours to get a first coat on everything. She was a trooper and stayed with me until we ran out of paint (we were almost done anyway). The next day, Mndy, Emi, Sarah B.,and Jenny (who came back!) helped me ALL day. Literally. They painted, cleaned, touched up, moved furniture, vaccuumed. We had the whole house finished and put back together by 3pm. It was great. Then we sat down to watch The Office. Now, I'm officially intrigued. Mindy left me the second season, so that is probably what I will be doing the rest of today. :-)
I'm so thankful to the girls. They not only were a TON of help, they made the project fun! Thanks ladies.
