I actually returned to home sweet home on the 29th!
Wowie! What an adventure!

This quote from a blogger friend's blog sums it up perfectly,

"Many of the great achievements of the world were accomplished by tired and discouraged men who kept on working."

Thanks for being my voice, Tracey

We have a little monkeywrench.

A friend in need, my sister-from-another-mother, is making a huge unwanted but necessary cross country move to Richmond. Not our little West Coast Richmond... the far away Richmond. I've been helping (kinda) to pack, offering support, moving lots-o-stuff around and now will be helping drive one of the two giant trucks across country. 3 people, 2 trucks, finding a place to live all in six days.

Now, you may think this is insane but hey, it's how I roll. Hahaha! WHEN I WAS 20! This sister would do it for me so, I'm there.

What this all means is: my progress in the studio is going to come to a dead stop but, Amazing Handy-Sign Cutter-Demo-Contractor Guy is going to add "Finish Carpenter" to his title. He doesn't have to but he says it's better than being home without me. Awwwww. What a keeper he is.

I'll be leaving the 16th and back in action on the 23rd or 24th.

NO, NO, NO! Not the 23rd now. It's been moved to the 26th.

August 1st.

I knew it would pass us by without a care. They're only goals.
As I type this, my right hand is reminding me of two things.
1- it's been a long time since I held a paintbrush with a death grip at the top of a ladder trying to make a beautiful seam between ceiling and wall.
2- There's a lot more of it to come in the next week or two.

At least the progress is steady. I seem to have my head stuck on the whole "floor thing" but Amazing Contractor Guy says it's nooooo problem.

I just keep to my back rooms painting, humming and trying not to fall off the ladder.
