Hell must be when the Devil makes you paint Heaven

That’s what my wife said after about 7 hours of painting our bedroom yesterday. I quipped back, “Yeah, he probably makes you paint the pearly gates!”

After waking up early we somehow managed to not get painting until around noon. We did stop at our favorite local diner for breakfast. It’s one of those places where the waitress knows your name and order. Well, she knows my wife’s name. For some reason I am just “hun”. Anywayyy after stocking up on delicious home fries, pancakes, and coffee (decaf for Roo!) we got home and started getting ready to paint. This was pretty much the first room we have ever painted and lets just say that there is a definite learning curve. Eventually we got the hang of it and/or lowered our standard of perfection down a few (okay a lot) of notches. Once the first coat was on the wall we reveled in our awesomeness before collapsing on the floor. Notice I said..first….coat. Le sigh. Coat number two starts today and I am definitely less than thrilled. Hopefully it will go quicker than yesterday and we can get wrapped up by the middle of the afternoon.

Here’s a pic of the completed first coat:

And Boo hated being shut out of the room all day. She showed her displeasure by whining incessantly at the door and then apparently sneaking off to do this:

Okay, enough procrastinating. Time to begin round 2 of the master bedroom paint-a-thon! Wish us luck!
