This weekend we celebrated with a painting party. We spent 14.5 hours painting 4 rooms downstairs – 1/2 bath, kitchen, living room and playroom. I have been wanting to repaint our house with lighter neutral colors to brighten our rooms. Our house was built facing in the direction where we don’t get any direct sunlight. Great for summers, not so great for winters. I like light. I like sunshine. I want things to be bright and peaceful in our house. So we painted. We painted all night Friday and the entire day Saturday. Lesson #1: Attempting to paint 4 rooms in one weekend is nearly impossible with 2 people and 2 little “helpers” in the house. Call for backup. In our case, it was my brother Jeffrey.
We did take a break on Saturday for a few hour and had dinner at our friends, Greg and Jenny. We played a couple games and had a wonderful time visiting with them. And once again, a major thanks to my brother who babysat while we went out. Nathan and I came home to two sleeping kids and more painting. Majority of the painting was done by 2 a.m. I guess we will be doing touch-ups this weekend. Lesson #2: Ticket to Ride Europe and Carcassonne are two games where Nathan has a chance of beating me.
Nathan said: This was a productive weekend. Along with the painting and a great date on Saturday we had a lot of fun. I also beat Tiffany at Carcassonne. Yeah!
