Today....

I have been toying for awhile about painting my loft upstairs and keep thinking that I really should get started. However I seemed to have lost my "mojo". Saturday, I took the paint and fixed some of the bloopers I did when I painted the stairway, which is a different color than the loft will be. Well, that's as far as I got. Today I decided I would tape off the areas and then just paint a little at a time. Well I got part of it taped and then went into the bedroom to answer the phone. I made the mistake of sitting down in the recliner and ended up taking a nap instead. Woke up to the the phone ringing with the roll of blue painters tape still on my arm like a bracelet. These long summer days are killing my enthusiasm to do anything productive. I feel like a sloth cause all I want to do is eat and sleep. It really doesn't help that my husband comes walking in the door at 2:00 from work. I need to learn to just do my thing and not get bothered by the fact that he is home and kind of under foot. I don't know how women do it when their husbands work from home. I am so used to doing my own thing and not having to say where I am going or what I am doing. Not that it matters to him, I'm just not used to it. I guess I had better learn really fast, cause I think retirement for him is in the near future!

You need to stop being so hard on yourself - you do plenty for so many people. You rock! The paint will get done when it gets done. You know if you have troubles with the whole husband and retirement thing I will reopen my counseling doors just for your :) wink* wink*
