So, we found a shower curtain, towels, and bathmats, then we were suddenly at Ace Hardware looking at paint samples, planning on taking home a few chips to see what we liked best. But, somehow I found myself with a gallon of paint in my hand, walking to the van (I didn't steal it!)
When we got home, I quickly made dinner and went up to clean the walls so the bathroom would be ready to paint in the morning. But again, something possessed me and I found myself on the ladder, starting to paint the walls at 8pm.
As Ryan and Becca tried to help I realized I'm not one of those easy going parents that says, "it's okay if you get paint on the carpet. In fact, let's have a paint war!!" No, I am one of those parents who says, "AGGGHHHH! You are done," when paint gets on the white carpet. I have to say I redeemed myself and let them come in and help again once I decided I'd be able to clean the floor.
We finished the first room and I sent the kids to bed while I cleaned up because it was so late. I spent the next day painting the room with the shower and toilet...frantically trying to get the walls done so we could put up the pictures and things after school and before Dave came home from his business trip. My friend came over with an awesome little roller that fits behind the toilet and saved me a lot of time since I didn't have to take it out to paint behind it. Thanks, Leslie! This little remodel wasn't exactly okayed ahead of time so it had to be perfectly done nad cleaned up before Dave got back. Like I said, I became a little possessed!
