Friday I decided I'd better get my hiney in gear, so I went outside and took a "before" photo of the house.
Saturday was unseasonably cool and the humidity was low. (At least for Missouri in July.) So, I really did get my hiney in gear.
Mid-afternoon, my cousin David came by. We agreed that the house looks pretty bad right now with the peeling paint, the haphazard primer, yellow paint here, gray paint there, but as David pointed out, "This ain't the worst it's ever looked." He's one of my favorite people because he's always supportive and encouraging. We walked around the house together.
David: You're just about to get 'er done, honey!
Me: Really?! You think so?!
David: No, not really.
Well, at least he always makes me laugh.
