What a day

For a long time I've been hoping for a Saturday where we spend all day doing projects that need to be done around the house. Of course, come Saturday I've lost all motivation to do such project, and every other Saturday Dan is on call....like he was today. So imagine my surprise when he got everyone up and going and we decided to paint. You have to understand that both Dan and I hate painting with a passion. This is why we have lived in our house now for almost two years and there is painting that still needs to be done. But today we painted the basement. It took quite awhile because the gallon of paint got spilled, Dan got called out, and the kids kept wanting to help. But, we got 'er done....well, the living room basement anyway. We were originally going to do the stairs too, but boy..that will have to be some other weekend. Any volunteers? Oh, and then after all the painting and cleaning up the painting (which Dan did most of) he said that we should have a movie night with the kids. So, we kept them up past bedtime to watch a movie together as a family. The kids were really excited to eat popcorn. Anyway, we got lots done today and it feels great. But the best part was working with Dan...and laughing over the spilled paint and making our house look nicer. Good times.

*No, I didn't take a picture of the finished product, and I probably won't either. You will just have to visit if you want to see it.

Way to go on the painting! I'm not too fond of it either. But I'm not much of a fan of any kind of "house work" You know, cuz I'm lazy. :)
