Bloggin' on the Sly...

Shhhhhh! I'm sneaking on here while the Hubby's out getting me more paint rollers and I'm in between loads of laundry.....



Paint rollers? Yep, I'm paintin' up a storm in the Bubs's bedroom.....finally. I think it was Joanna who jokingly said that she could see me painting the room the day before the In Laws get here. She wasn't far off! Our houseguests will be here next Saturday afternoon. That's okay, though. I promised the Bubs that we would have his bedroom done before he starts school near the end of August and I guess this visit is the extra incentive I need to really make sure my tushy stays in gear to get it done.


Bubs said he wanted a blue on the walls. I went with a more grown up blue than he really wanted because I wanted it to "grow" with him. In other words, as much as I like to paint, I didn't want to be in there in a year's time doin' the whole thing over again. He and the Hubs both like the color and I'm happy with how it looks on the wall, too. It's relaxing. The Bubs is, however, miffed at me that he can't help me paint. He's helped me in the past, but his room is on the small side and his bed's on the huge side. There's no room to poot, much less two people painting. Long story slightly shorter...he ended up sitting in the hallway at one point with a snack and drink simply watching me paint. This was fine with me. That is until, between munching away on his snack he happily pointed out that I had missed a spot! Yeah, the Hubs thought that was funny when I told him later. It was funny........later.


Anyhoo, I'll leave y'all with a few "in progress" pics. Hopefully, I'll be able to take "hallelujah I'm done, now where's the Advil?" pics this evenin'.
