Robbing Banks

These days I can be found in my painting attire: old pants with streaks of paint, some obnoxious neon Nike sneaks, and the jail bird black & white rugby shirt from my days of sailing on Spartan. You combine that with a dust mask, sunglasses and noise canceling protective gear and I might as well be robbing banks. It's a good look.

Instead of robbing banks, we are finishing up the front of our house. And my department is the paint department. And man is that a satisfying job. The progress is evident. The process is soothing. And my house is coming back to life one stroke at a time. It is rewarding and zen like all at the same time. It's funny too because I wrote about the paint department 2 years ago about this time - just goes to show some things never change!

We have 10 days to finish this project AND the bathroom - that is our self-induced timeline. That means long days and longer nights of painting, tweaking, and finishing it up. I for one cannot wait until the 10 days are up! And I know Andrew will be releived as he has been pouring his heart and soul into these projects for the past few months. Our house certainly would never be in the condition it is without his hard work and drive to do it right.

Here's to robbing banks and finishing up the front of the house!
