I painted all day Friday and Saturday. I was going to finish Sunday but I crawled out of bed and everything ached. Every. Single. Thing. Since the only thing left to finish is the hallway with its five doorways I decided to take the day off.
Five doorways? That is radonculous.
So is painting.
I thought that during my painting marathon I would come up with a couple of great writing ideas for the week, but instead I mainly thought about what it must be like to hire a professional painter. Who even does that?
The random thoughts and observations that kept me from getting bored while I rolled.....
*Why do stores lock the dressing rooms so you have to track somebody down to try on clothes? It drives me batty and if I hadn't already determined that said frock was ABOUT TO CHANGE MY LIFE, I'd leave in a huff.
*I think Jennifer Lawrence is peaking too early which is never a good thing. Look at Justin Bieber of late for proof on that one, although she seems infinitely smarter than him.
*Since Friday I have heard "Say Something" by Christina Aguillera multiple times on the radio. New favorite song.
*I usually don't watch the Grammys but Sara Bareilles is up for album of the year. The Blessed Unrest. I have worn it out.
*I never miss an episode of "The Good Wife."
*Except for Will, we all had MLK day off. Maggie, Nate and I met at Savers for some thrift store shopping @ 50% off. I found an Ann Taylor jacket for $6.50. It is going TO CHANGE MY LIFE and the dressing room wasn't locked.
*I have friends who wouldn't set foot in a thrift store. They so don't get it.
*I get up early in the morning so I can read the paper. No matter how bad I've slept I still would rather get up early enough to read the paper than sleep in.
*My hairdresser got me to stop using shampoo. I've washed my hair with conditioner only for nearly three years.
*I've never had a facial, pedicure or manicure but I have had an upper GI, CAT scan and three surgeries.
*Did you know that "How I Met Your Mother" is on 24/7? Me either and then Mal had a long winter break.
*If I could rent a monkey to sit and pick the paint out of my hair I would. Time for shampoo?
I need a good book to get me through this cold, gloomy month. Any suggestions?
