A Painting We Will Go…


We have hired DSS (as part of his life skills curricula) to paint our dining room. He isn’t doing a bad job at all but it is pretty labor intensive for me. I’ve just gotten to the point where I can actually LEAVE the room while he is painting because of the following comments,

“can you look at this?”

“did you remember to tape the molding?”

“No paint on my dining room table”

“scrub the paint drops off the hardwood.”

He is doing a stellar job but I am worn out. We are trying to do the room in stages, each day, he tapes off, primes and paints one wall. We have 2 more walls to go. This is more time-consuming than you might thing because my dining room has tons of windows he has to tape around. The room looks great, me not so much!

I need a cigarette and I don’t smoke!
