1000 pictures in 3 days. What was I thinking?

1000 pictures in 3 days. What was I thinking?

If we keep this up I'm going to have to buy a lock box just for the wee people simm cards (LOL). Did we have fun? Yup. Are we having fun now trying to figure out what to write about? Yup. Will we be taking you guys on a tour of upstate? Eventually... once we sort it all out (LOL).

We're also still painting the apartment because Stephen is giving us a run for our money (if he's not being a crayon bandit he is laughing while ruining our clothes). I remember feeling really pleased about the faux finish on my hall walls. Now I have to paint that puppy over with white primer because I missed chucking out a marker and the green shorty used is bleeding through, driving me crazy because I can't glaze it out. It was custom colors (banana cream, applesauce and jasmine white) layered in a series of thin glaze overlays by hand with a linen cheese cloth. Now I gotta start from scratch to match the wall with the painting I created to hang there. Bummer...

Maybe I should (a) switch paintings, (b) not hang a painting or (c) buy a giant clock (LOL). I am such a pain in the a$$ when it comes to painting my apartment. Gotta get back to work. The shorties are helping me. :-)

Bummer about the walls. I feel your pain though. Once after working all night, I fell asleep on the couch. My two boys, 2 & 3 years old, got a hold of permanent markers and turned the living room walls into quite an impressive rendition of prehistoric cave drawings.

Hi C-

It sounds like you have about as much help as a girl can stand.

 Maybe you should re-assess it from a Zen perspective?  Such a beautiful-sounding color scheme - may be it would be good to have a big bottle of wine and repaint and glaze. It has to be the most peaceful job at your house!

Sounds like your are a voicer in a whirlwind! Happy painting, just plan on doing it over again soon!

And just think, a picture is worth a thousand words, so if you have a thousand pictures, that's worth a lot of words my friend.

And you are doing what in your spare time?

Posted by Jane Peters, Los Angeles real estate concierge services (Home Jane Realty) over 10 years ago

LOL @ Jane. The list is long my love. ;-)

JL, very good point. I shall have to sort them carefully so I can have a field day teasing people (LOL).

ROTFL @ Richard. I know what you mean. they swiped the spare box of crayons from the top shelf in the kitchen. I have been sneaking about in the wee hours of the morning trying to find them all. They have really cool hiding places. I'm finding money (LOL).

iTexas, wine does sound lovely but it makes me sleep. I can't hold my liq worth a darn so I have to stay far, far away from it. What is so relaxing for some knocks me out completely. We're not going to mention the inhibition problems (LMAO). ;-)

Hey sis try priming the area of the masterpiece with a product used for covering waterstains.  I think one of them is called Stainz.  Good luck oh and digital is great can you imagine how many rolls of film you would have gone through, lol

I feel your pain. I had to paint our upstairs and it was such a job. Cathedral ceilings are not fun to paint. Can't wait to see your pics. And you'll have the time to do that when? :)
