One wall in our bedroom had been painted when we bought the house. And the previous owners had done something with gold, silver, and bronze mixed foil-like etching on that wall. So I had to scrape and scratch and wipe off those flecks of color before I could put a base coat of white paint BEFORE I could paint the new color. And then there are always the tasks of removing pictures and furniture, patching holes and taping edges ... so many edges.

I was very industrious yesterday and got ALL of the above done, except painting the new color on that wall. It was a late night, but I was energized by the progress and woke up early this morning to jump right into painting the first color around the room. And that's when I goofed.

At approximately 11:23am reality set in. I don't know what set it off but I realized I was LATE. Fortunately I was at a good stopping point, but it was still a frantic rush to shave, shower, clean off paint brushes, and skedaddle on over to the building in time for Sunday School.
Sigh. I just hate it when that happens. Oh well. :)
Song Of The Day:
If only for the line "get me to the church on time" I had no choice but to use David Bowie's "Modern Love" as the song today. Classic tune. Totally fits today.
