This is taking forever! :) I got my room completely cleared out except for my mattress, and I got the walls dusted. I had to take out all the screws where things were hung on the walls, and the outlet covers, and vacuum it all very thoroughly. Then there were nails popping out on the baseboards, so I had to punch those back in, and spackle them and the holes on the walls. This is what it looks like now:
I'm waiting for the spackle to dry, then I need to start rolling the primer. I don't like having an extra step, but the paint on there now is really bad quality, so it needs to be thoroughly sealed before I put the new paint on. If it's not sealed, all the problems with the old paint will eventually wear through, and then all that work would be ruined...so, primer! I was hoping to get the primer done this morning so I could paint the trim around the ceiling and get it started drying. Dad said I needed to let it sit for, I think, 4-5 days before I put tape up there. Well, we'll see how the primer goes, I might still have time, like tonight, to paint the trim.
Hopefully I can get all this done, reasonably fast, because my stuff's all over the house! There's furniture and boxes in the living room, my bedframe's in the hall (and my mattress will be too, when I move it), and my bedside table is in the garage. I hope there's enough room for Dad to pull the car in... :( He didn't want to leave it in the driveway, because we've been having so much rain and possibilities of hail.
And somehow, in the middle of all this, I need to keep working on my science book. We've decided that instead of trying to get my math book finished this summer, I'll work on the science. I'm sort of behind grade on that anyway, and I can go through it fast and still be able to comprehend it. Whereas the math...um...well, let's just say, I need to really pay attention to it!
Well, I'd better get some lunch and get back to work!
And anyone who's reading this, please leave comments (and please leave your name!!!) And who all has looked at my profile that I have 16 views on it?!! Or did someone go back to it several times??? Whatever... it doesn't really matter, I was just suprised!
