It is 10:30 on Tuesday night as I write this post. I should be sleeping as I have been working 12-14 hours a day on the house while trying to recover from strep throat. I think the cleaning portion of the program will be finished tomorrow and I am feeling a wee bit better. Hurray for small victories!
If you are following our slow progress on Instagram you know I have been pondering just how I was going to paint our very tall stairwell. Mr. Decor and I finally threw in the DIY towel and I have been interviewing painting crews. (On a side note, Rudi the dachshund has already been trained not to climb the stairs but to wait for someone to carry him thus saving wear and tear on his delicate old back. :)
We have already washed all the ceilings, walls, and baseboards. Some of the walls felt like Swiss cheese once the million wall anchors were removed but they have now been spackled.
I spent a good portion of Tuesday removing the many layers of contact paper from cabinet shelves. It was coming up in tiny, thin strips. Grrrrrr! Afterwards everything received a good scrubbing with TCP.
Now for your viewing pleasure, may I present the Storybook Tour Part One.

Storybook Tour Part Three
I say “all right” entirely too much in the videos but I am just too tuckered out to go back and edit then reload. The WiFi in our hotel room is dial up SLOOOOWWWW. Perhaps it just gives you a good giggle.
Let me close by saying “thank you” for all your lovely comments, good thoughts and special prayers. Your sweet friendship is such a blessing to me.
