The Workmen are Here!!

Painting in the living room has begun. I don’t see how they can possibly finish in a day though. It’s almost 4 and they haven’t finished the first coat, and then there’s the trim. No way.

The cats and I are hiding out in the bedroom. You can’t see the cats, they are on the bed to my left. This all the stuff from the living room that I could fit in here. I’m trying not to think about how long it’s going to take me to put it all back together.

  1. Oh, I’ve been thinking about you and Bleeck and Finney these past few days and hopefully progress has been made. You’re very brave to have signed on for what I’m sure you knew would be a major disruption in your lives..it’s why I can justify my procrastination for the same here for me and my two feline roommates, Bela and Dona.

  2. Yes, that’s an antique stove!!

    Mavis, it was a major disruption. Ultimately, it’s such a good thing, to have a nice, freshly painted apartment, but man do you have to work for it. It took a week of full-time work to get it clean and put back together.
