The paint elephant
I am not going to lie - I cried. It was only five years ago that we COMPLETELY remodeled our house. Five short years.
And the children are wrecking everything. The walls are filthy. There is crayon on things, pencil on things, gauges in the floors, trim falling off, holes in the walls.
We could use a total redo already.
That kills me. (And it is not for lack of my hollering at them to STOP IT, plus living with nothing to write with, no scissors to cut with, etc to keep them out of everything.)
Since literally EVERY SINGLE ROOM needs fresh paint, I decided I had better just start by painting something instead of being overwhelmed.
It's something, but man it is only a small bite of the paint elephant.
The real problem is this - how on earth do you even paint with all these small kids? I mean I just cannot even get my head around the logistics of it. Oy.
Next up is the dining room I think. Then foyer, then hiring out the master bath.
Send brownies. Or Nannies? Yes, nannies. Send those please!
