That about sums it up. One of the many projects this year was painting the living and dining rooms. They haven't been painted in 11 years and really need freshened up.
Since some patch work was needed and the ceilings had to be done along with all the trim, I decided to pay someone else to do it. These rooms are big and the task was just too overwhelming for me. Best decision I've made in awhile.
The painter is actually a homicide detective that I work with. He paints as a side job. I decided I might be getting a little jaded about my job when he called yesterday morning to tell me he'd be a little late because he got called out on a dead woman found in a trash can. And my first response was "So how long do you think that'll take?"
Trust me, I recognize the tragedy in that. It just took a second for it to catch up. One of the side effects of police work.
Stay tuned for pics of the finished project....
