So recently I repainted my bathroom. It was in desperate need. The previous owners thought it would be such a great idea to paint latex over oil paint. Ahhh of course! What a great freaking idea! NOT.
To make a long story short I spent a good three days scraping and sanding, priming and painting to make the bathroom ceiling look like something other than what you might find in a ghetto house and then proceeded to paint the bathroom walls. This also was not without complications. The paint started to drip down the walls. It was sneaky too .. it waited until I had carried on to another section to start dripping. Stupid paint.
Finally the bathroom is done .. well not really .. I think I've just given up. I could go in there and touch things up but while I have put so much effort into this bathroom I have to wonder ... how many other women put their house before themselves? I'm sure alot.
Last night as I was inspecting my work I glimpsed in the bathroom mirror at myself. I looked terrible. The bathroom looked great but I looked awful. I hadn't showered, my hair was greasy, no makeup. Sometimes I wish I was one of those women who wouldn't dare touch a paint brush. I could look up painters in the yellow pages on the way to get my gel nails refilled. Heck .. I could even hire a cleaner ... and a cook, and a nanny ... okay getting carried away here.
The truth is .. this just wouldn't be me. I don't mind doing projects around the house, but seriously after this one .. I looked a mess. Today is a new day .. and here are my plans to make myself feel better:
1) Do a workout .. yes before I shower .. extra grease and sweat is good for the hair don't ya know?
2) Pluck my eyebrows
3) Put a little makeup on
4) Heck maybe I'll even get out the old straightening iron and do my hair.
5) Heck maybe I'll even paint my nails! Whoa .. now i'm getting carried away.
Does anybody else have these thoughts or am I the only nutjob out there?
