If you've been around Kerrific very long you know that we bought a house almost two years ago. It's hard to believe it's been that long! Owning a home has been quite the adventure with out the maintenance and repairs. This year one of my goals is to get paint on the walls (since we still have just texture) and hide all the crayon marks and bug guts that are currently there.
The painting will probably take most of the summer to complete since there is quite a bit to do. After that hopefully I can finish getting the shelves into the closets, more on that another day, and everything organized. It's hard to believe that after two years I still have many of our things in boxes but I suppose that's just the way it goes when you move.
I've thought about seeing if I could hire some people to help me get these projects done and get a discount in exchange for putting up the companies yard signs in my front lawn. Since we live on one of the busiest streets in town that should be a good exchange don't you think? I know that politicians love to put their signs up on this street simply because of the traffic and I would assume that business feel the same way.
The likelihood of this happening is slim but it's a good thought. What will probably happen is that I will work my butt off to get my house painted this summer and have very little time for anything else. I suppose it will pay off though since they say, “if you want something done right you have to do it yourself”. At least I will know the job is done right.
It will also be good to teach my kids how to do some of the jobs. I don't know that they will be able to help with much painting but they will be able to help me move things around and get ready to paint and then help me put things away again when we're done. Such a blessing to be able to teach my kids and get work done at the same time. I love being a mom!
