still fussing at house

It’s just that there are nice people moving in.
So it’s not just cleaning out the last of the stuff, it’s getting the bones of the place better.

Painted bathroom #1.
It has mocha colored tile and was bright yellow, with bits of underlying forest green paint showing.
it now Landlord White (Benjamin Moore Atrium White).
They want color, they can buy towels.
(But if they aren’t brown or white, it will look weird.)

Today will paint bathroom #2.
Bright pink tiles, currently bright yellow.
And take (I hope) final truckload or so of stuff to dump.
(More springs, dead drapes, broken stuff.)
Finish sorting papers and books (Tom).
Maybe some paint on other walls.
Goodwill run.
Buy stove and toilet seat.
That sort of stuff.

We will be done by the 1st, and I will briefly get my own life back.

  4. "They want color, they can buy towels. (But if they aren't brown or white, it will look weird.)" Orange would actually go…but I am thinking, if they want colour, they can go in bathroom number 2, the Betty Boop loo."We will be done by the 1st, and I will briefly get my own life back." Life? Women do not get a "life". Kidding. (Bettina works a lot more than she used to. She asks her husband one day: "Why are you wearing those old underpants with holes in them?" He responds, "I didn't have any clean ones". Bettina looks at husband with one eyebrow lifted higher than the other. Husband innocently puts on his trousers and goes to find his shoes. Day carries on as normal, while she spends her spare time at work wondering what the hell men are thinking)

  5. And Landlord White is brilliant! I think you should patent that and market it to Martha Stewart.
