Well, it's OK. I mean, I chose to do this, but I did TOTALLY underestimate the amount of time this would take. I am painting my own house.
First the scraping...
Then on Sunday, I pushed some painting through, and now have this on the side:
In the midst of all of this, I discovered that I have carpenter ants. And I can't put that off. After I get the front and side completely done I am taking a break to do something -ANYthing- else. Wouldn't it be awesome to read a book? lol!
Anyhow. Gobble-gobble...there goes my summer, but the result will rock, so it's all good.
