I bit off more that I can chew

I bit off a bit more than I can chew this weekend.

biting off more than I can chew

I feel you turtle man, I do.

Let’s start with last Friday afternoon, shall we?  On Friday afternoon I made a trip over to Lowe’s with the kid.  Since we decided to stay home for the weekend, I thought it might be a good time to paint my bedroom so I bought lots of paint.

The last time that I painted it was years ago and unfortunately I used the wrong type of paint.  I won’t bore you with the details except to say that I have 2 walls primed and that’s as far as I’ve gotten and when I think of what’s left to do, I feel like this…..


This could go on for weeks….WEEKS!

In case you didn’t know it, I’m not really good at taking my time with things.  I like to just get them done.  Unfortunately,  I spent all weekend on this room and now it’s the weekday and I have other things that have to be done, like that job thing, ugh!

MacGyver refuses to help because he wanted nothing to do with painting the room in the first place.  Besides, he’s a little preoccupied with his new toy.

The mold of the fish he caught a few weeks ago.


This is the 42″ Snook that he caught….

So I’ll just have to resort to working on it during breaks and at night and hope I get it finished this month.

Since I was painting the bedroom this weekend I only had a chance to watch one episode of Orange is The New Black but it was hella good.  I can’t wait to see more.

I did manage to run both Saturday and Sunday and I was smart and ran on the treadmill.  I did 4 miles on Saturday and 5 on Sunday.  It was a nice break from the painting and although I would have liked to run more I just couldn’t find the time.

I did get a chance to wear my new romper on a trip to Lowe’s.  I’m not sure I like it with flat shoes and also because I have such a long torso I’m not sure it looks all that great.


The pattern is really cute though so that’s a plus.

All right, I need to get to work so I can find the time to paint today.  Oh joy!  And yes, that’s sarcasm.

Do you like painting?
Do you paint your house yourself or hire someone?
