Sweet Zombie Jesus, we're painting again. It needs to be done, but just the smell of painter's tape and primer brought back memories of the frantic weeks before we moved when we spent about nine hours a day trying to get this place fixed up, cover the hideous colors we were left with, and clean and repaint the old apartment. Lordy, we were tired then.
Fortunately, we don't have as much to paint this time -- just the entryway and a short hallway. We spent as much time prepping and taping as we did actually putting the primer on.
But a homeowner's work is never done. Never, I tell you.
My hamstrings hurt.

You repainted your old apartment? More than just spackling over holes?

Yeah, we had that green wall in the bedroom that we had to cover up. We didn't do the whole apartment. That's crazy talk!
