- Camping is better in the spring and the fall
- There is no substitute for homemade vanilla ice cream
- You can never have too many black Sharpies
- People with OCD tendencies should never attempt to adhere painters tape
to walls or ceilings or really even attempt the whole painting thing at all
Let's chat about that last one, shall we?
In my take-charge, knock-this-out goal of painting the dining room in the new house tonight, I took delight in preparing my workspace, arranging my brushes, roller, paint can and trim tools JUST SO. And then I attempted to apply the lovely blue tape to the walls. I'm pretty sure I invented new cuss words as I tore off little pieces to "patch" up the corners and to even out my bumpy spots. Finally, I was ready to paint.
Everything was coming along OK until it came to the trim work. Even with my handy dandy trimmer/edger paint thingy I still managed to make it look like a 2nd grade art project. How do painters do this for a LIVING? I kid you not. I can imagine no greater punishment than being sentenced to painting walls for a living. I'd lose my everlovin' mind.
Isn't rationalization is a beautiful thing?
