In all of my painting experiences (and believe me - there have been many), I do not remember a time when I was so frustrated! I also do not remember a time when while painting I wanted to sit and cry. And yes, in case you had not figured it out, the repairing of wobbly lines is not going "smoothly." The room that should have been done a week ago when I started, should not still be getting my attention!!!! To top it off, the rest of my house looks like a thrift store because it has Silas' bedroom stuff spread all over, and other items that need to be sorted and taken to the new shed, and laundry mounting to the ceiling, and dishes that need to be washed (I was painting instead!). . . I do believe that is not helping my frame of mind! But on the good side,
I have a little guy that has spent a good deal of time watching his mobile as I taped, muttered, fumed, taped, taped, grumbled, etc.
And on another good note, there is a very excited little boy who is on a vacation with his Daddy. Years ago we started a tradition that the summer before our kids started school, they would get to go away with Troy for a few days. Ethan has been bursting with anticipation and counting down the days, and he and Daddy are now enjoying the mountains of Georgia.

On another very good note, Seth, Silas, and I will soon join them! I have to get this room done so I can truly relax. It would be a downer to come back to the thrift store in my living room! Did I ever mention that I hate painting, and all tape is not created equal?!

Suddenly, boring solid colored walls just got a lot more attractive, didn't they? :)

Ugh! THat must be why I've never painted stripes on the walls! LOL!The vacation sounds's just hard to believe that Ethan is old enough for school!! That ought to be fun....homescooling with Silas around! It was quite a challenge at times when Caleb was that little, but hey...we also had a LOT more laughs during the day!
BTW, the pic of Silas in his crib reminds me so much of Seth for some reason. Although I never saw Seth as a baby, he just has a look on his face that I've seen before on Seth. Hope that mobile doesn't become boring beofre you get the walls done! Good luck! :)

I feel your pain! Somehow when big projects need done the other work doesn't stop does it! Usually about a few hours into whatever I'm doing I think to myself---what is wrong with me and why did I start this project!!!!! But, take heart it will end at some point!ha

Julie, my thoughts exactly concerning this room! "Why, oh why, am I doing this?!"
