The cute paint job

This is the old scatterville, shortly after we started demo, although you can't tell from the front of the house.

This is what it looks like now. We are quite happy. I spent yesterday getting the roof area done on the scaffolding 20 ft up in the air and it's done on one side of the house. R spent the day replacing boards on the house where our side door used to be. The kitchen area is there now. I am scrapping and caulking today, hoping to get the whole side primed so I can finish either tonight or tomorrow. It is very hot. VERY hot. This is one of my many breaks to not keel over. R patched an area that used to be a window today and is off to town to look for nice shoes. He has a very important tour/meeting tomorrow with BIG shot people.

I haven't decided what to do tomorrow. It's either pack, which we haven't done yet and we close in 12 days. AH! or go into town and see if one of our friends can play. I think I am going to opt for cleaning/packing so I don't feel so much panic next week. Our week is already packed with parties (three of them), a moving truck on Saturday, 4th of July, and well I don't see much getting done in the packing area. OH and we have to return the scaffolding and get the other side done on Friday, Saturday so really I have to keep my nose to the grindstone.

I would much rather be in some airconditioning, reading a good book while my children blissfully play with new toys all day long. Instead I'm outside covered in dirt and probably lead paint in 90 degree temps with the sun beating down on me and occassional scream from inside the house of one child hurting the other.

I will post more pictures when I get new batteries for my camera. I just barely sqeaked out that one.

Hey, did you get my e-mail about watching the kids on Sat?
