No, really. I managed to swap the bookcase and the library table–both of them heavy mothers and both of them wider than the room so NOT EASY–and get the floor painted when the rest of the boat paint came in. I sorted through the books and put only what I’m currently using on the bookcases. There’s still a lot to do–I had to wait to paint until yesterday when I’d have outside temps of above 50 for more than 24 hours–so progress pictures next week, but as God is my witness, I got a lot done.
And while I was sorting things out in the office, I also sorted things out online, clearing out the Business file in Dropbox and changing my Amazon Smile charity to Planned Parenthood because I have had up to here with damn men trying to take reproductive rights away from women. Also, Elizabeth Warren should live forever and be President someday, but not now because we need her fighting the good fight in Congress. (This is what happens when I’m doing relatively mindless things like building simple boxes and painting everything white: I brood.)
Next week: Please, please please let me finish this room and be done forever. I don’t mind cleaning, but this wrassling furniture around and dealing with oil base paint that takes 24 hours to even approach being dry is not fun, plus it leaves my mind free to wander, and that’s not good either (see tomorrow’s post). OTHO, now I can find things. Huge step forward.
And the floor looks really great, too.
