Its been two days and I have two rooms done. I am just amazed by the difference in good paint and bad paint. I still need to cut in T's room but he heat just comes too fast. There are a couple of spots where I have to touch up the white in my aunt's room. Its hard not to brush any of the door frame with the roller! Tomorrow we are going to get the paint for the living room and hallway. I am getting really excited because I can actually see progress. I have gotten more done in three hours than we got done with TWO people in four days. Those were six hour days! I am not happy that we have to buy more paint but I just can't see continuing to slog along, re-painting over and over again. I want this to END.
I am just so irritated that we wasted so much time on this. Tomorrow I am going to try coming home to rest, then going back in the evening so I can get more done. Its been wonderful having my aunt here. If I need to go get something, we just go. Mom is in more and more pain with her feet as well as having her diverticulitis going off again. She's at the point where she is ready to deal with the consequences of going back on Cymbalta. I am going to try to get ahold of her doctor tomorrow and ask her about some of the other meds that help neuropathy. The spray works less than it did and it sets her nerves off worse for about a half hour before it does start working. Its disheartening to see her in so much pain and not be able to do anything about it.
Dad's a bit cranky. He's still in the irritated about not being able to do much, mode. I keep telling him that his time is coming! The floor will be here soon enough and he's the one that's going to lay it. He just needs to cool it and let me get this paint going. TJ is continuing to amaze me. He may be taking until Sunday at 5 pm to get his work done but he is still working on his own. I check his grades and they have dropped about 3% with me not sitting right by him. That's it! I know he and I will both be glad when school is over. They really pile on the work at the very end at this school He will be a high schooler next year and 14 years old in just sixteen days. He's growing up way too fast.
As a side note, I gained two pounds this Sunday. Not a real big deal, I am sure I will lose it again pretty quick. I have maintained or lost every weigh day. I've gained, but by the actual weigh day, its always back to normal. And with all the painting I am doing, I will not be surprised if I not only get back there but have lost more by next Sunday! I think I confused my poor body with all the rest and then back to some real work. LOL
