The realtors are coming to look at the house on Thursday.

There is a bucketload of stuff to do.
But I am too stinkin' overwhelmed to clean/straighten/fix.

So I am eating.
And checking facebook.
And playing Mah Jong Medley.
And eating.

Being in denial sure packs on the pounds.

Paint Cans in La Paz

The outside of the house is done:

Stucco Walls: Green
Garage Door: Darker Green
Trim: Chocolate Brown
Door: Bright Red
Equals: Mint Chocolate Chip with a Cherry on Top House

The 'computer room' is done:

Slick Dark Green 'accent' wall
Cowboy Painting & Paraphernalia
Dad's Recliner
Gramma & Grampa's Indian Print
Equals: A real 'room' rather than a garbage can.

Sid's garage sale headboard is almost done:

Puttied holes & cracks
Sanded sticky-out splinters
White accidental 'primer' layer
Second coat is finished
Equals: Sore knees and wrist & a vow to use spray paint 'next time.'

The house we pick out better look exactly the way we want, cuz I don't want to do this again.
