I just haven't had much to talk about. Today it got hot and I'm afraid our beautiful cool weather is just about over for this year.
When I got this mobile home the interior was total paneling - everywhere, walls, ceilings, closet doors, and you name it - the same crappy fake paneling. One of the first things I did was to start painting, from the bedroom, to the spare room, to the hallway, to the living room and finally to the kitchen. (I never did get around to the bathroom). By the time I reached the kitchen I was sick and tired of painting, especially considering the time and number of coats it took to paint over the paneling. I am ashamed to say it, but since there are so many cabinets in the kitchen, requiring removal of all the hardware to soak the dirt out, and the painting of everything, I quit before I was finished! I still had three doors below the sink, plus about 12 drawers to paint. Now that I want to sell this place, I have to finish what I started all those years ago. I just hope the newly painted drawers don't make the rest of them look dingy.
I'm wiped out after removing all the hardware and screws, and placing them in a container of TSP to soak overnight. I'll scrub them with an old toothbrush tomorrow. Right now my back aches worse than usual. I also started deep cleaning the fridge, and threw out a bunch of things I haven't used in a long while.
I took Rocky out for a short walk first thing this morning and one of the nicer ladies in the park was there with her dog, so we joined them. I didn't intend to stay long, but several others came with their dogs, and Rocky was in heaven. An hour after we came back home Andrew came to walk him, and when he brought him back he said Rocky just couldn't walk anymore. All the running with the dogs caught up to him. I even noticed the few more times I tried to walk him this afternoon he was still unable to go very far. I hope he recuperates overnight!
Regarding the painting, Jeannie said she would come over Wednesday and possibly Thursday and do the painting for me. That's why I had to stick with the hardware removal and cleaning everything so it will be ready for her. Rocky and I are both too tired to move right now.
That's how exciting my life as been today. I'm too old for this!
