I am covered in paint and exhausted.
The house is not done....but done enough.
I have another suprise up my sleeve for Edgard. He is flying into a city that is 2 hours distant. When he left, he parked the truck at a motel for a lower fee than the airport's long term parking. Now he is going to arrive Saturday night at 10:00 p.m. and by the time that he goes through customs and catches the shuttle to the hotel to get his truck it will be quite late and he still has a two hour drive in front of him. So this is the plan. My mom is driving up to the same city tomorrow. The children and I will go ahead and drive my mom up to the hotel where she will take the pickup from there and continue on to her destination and we will stay at the hotel. When Edgard gets to the hotel, late and tired, he will see our car instead of the truck with a note saying "Your nutty little family is room ###".
I think that he will be very surprised and pleased since he has called saying that he is very homesick and lonely for us. Plus he can see the newly painted house in the daylight and with a little more sleep!
Now with my favorite Mexican coming back....I will be taking a very leeetle break from the blog. Don't worry though, as I will be back full force very soon with the after pictures of the house...and it looks very, very good!


  1. awwwww...thats is sooo sweet! i love the idea! he's a very lucky husband, how many husbands have wives who paint the house?

    with no consensus figures at hand, i feel confident that you are in a very teeny, tiny minority.

    you rock!

  2. thanks..
    I probably will never do this again!!
    I feel like I have been beaten. This was way to big of a project for me!!! Although....the fence looks like it could be replaced. I wonder when he will leave again. If I just had one week...... just one more week.....

  3. I found your blog through Like a Star. Love what you're doing to the house (and what a great wife you are!). I'll have to come back for the "after" pictures!

  4. Painting seems to call upon musclesd seldom ever used! Whenver I have finished a big painting job, I am astonished at the aches and pains in my body. It is really hard work!! Good for you.. we will look for pictures to come!

  5. OMG! That is so great!! I would love to do something like that for my husband Matt. Anxious to hear how it went!!
