Manual Labor


Tonight I met my college roommate, her husband, and two kids for dinner. They are in town from Macon, Georgia, for a few days. We ate at Zoe's right near the condo, so I stopped by afterwards to do a little work. I set a deadline of 10 p.m. for myself and was quite pleased that I left at 11:05 p.m. Ha ha. But, seriously, alls I did while I was there tonight is tape off trim. I mean, for TWO hours. And I didn't even finish—but I am close.

I plan to go back in the morning before work and put a coat on the trim. What? You're all laughing because this sounds so ridiculous coming from me? That's because it is. But I'm going to try. I'm feeling rather motivated. Go ahead and make fun. Brooke already did. Yeah, this coming from the girl who struggles to get to work by 9 a.m.

And yes. I know it's pathetic. But I get so much done after 9 p.m.! I mean, dudes, it's midnight and look how bright-eyed I am.

Bowlby, you have no faith. I painted trim this a.m. Boo-yah.

Thanks, Jamie :) I hope you don't mean "hot" as in "sweaty."

I sure hope you used Frog tape from Home Depot. Because if you didn't, you will probably cry when you pull that tape off.
