PAINTING OUR HOUSE WAS NOT WHAT I EXPECTED..........


      PAINTING OUR HOUSE WAS NOT WHAT I EXPECTED


Recently we moved back into our house here in Jacksonville…With the house being empty without our furniture, we decided to paint the ENTIRE FIRST FLOOR…


MY HUSBAND PATRICK




It took us 2 days to prime, paint and touch up and we each worked together to pull the whole thing together.







      WHAT WERE WE THINKING



MY HUSBAND WORKED HARD



My husband did MOST OF THE WORK…


But don’t tell him I said that (smile)











AS THE PAINT WAS STARTING TO DRY WE COULD SEE HOW OUR HARD WORK WAS GOING TO PAY OFF...




THE WALLS LOOKED BEAUTIFUL.....






MY SON PATRICK

My son Patrick took care of all the corners and spotted all of the spots that needed touching up, He said that HE WAS THE FOREMAN on the job.












MY DAUGHTER LYRIC


 My daughter Lyric was responsible for the baseboards and helped my husband out with all of the....“High Walls” (The tall people)











I was able to help out as well, but my old knees did not allow me to do the baseboards…



LOOK AT ME

All in all, Painting was not what I expected. I found myself laughing with the kids and sharing funny stories while we pained our house together..
Moments like this are far and few between.







ADDING COLOR TO A ROOM BRINGS IT TO LIFE














We have to cherish each moment we can as they are growing right before my eyes…



















HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY EVERYONE!!
