Wow. I knew I was addicted to my computer, but I had forgotten how hard it would be to be without it for a couple of days! Not since two years ago, when we moved to this house, have I gone a day without logging on. We had our house painted this week. Three upstairs rooms, including the office where our computer is kept. Everything, including our cable phone and high speed internet, has been unplugged since yesterday morning. I finally figured out how to hook it all back up about an hour ago. After reading and responding to my thirty-three emails, checking friends' blogs and "googling" something for my daughter's homework, I decided it was time to update my blog.
As for our newly painted rooms. They are wonderful. Nothing is a better boost to a room than clean, new paint. The painter did a great job. One man, three rooms, two days. Including ceilings, wood trim, closets! Amazing. Very costly, but amazing. Now, all there is left to do is move all of the "stuff" back into the rooms. Since my hubby is away on business, I have a feeling that it will be done very slowly.
I've also been trying to get used to my new bifocals. These things certainly do take some adjustment! The stairs are fuzzy. I have to remember to turn my head toward an object to actually see it in focus. By the end of the day, I have a bit of a headache. Or maybe it's just the smell of fresh paint? It is really nice to be able to read without looking under my glasses, though!
