I ended up playing hooky from work today, lets call it a mental health day. And boy was it needed!
My car will finally be done this afternoon and I can pick it up after a home visit with a student. I haven't heard the final bill yet...and I'm cringing just thinking about it. But hopefully all will be good.
Instead of sharing my "to do" lists, I'd like to share my "done" list! Today was a productive day!
It started with submitting my final graduate paper. Man, does it feel good! Maybe one day I'll finish the whole masters, but for now I'm happy with the certificate I set out to complete! 5 classes finished, with excellent grades, and paid in full. Halleluia!
You'll never guess what else I finished! The bathroom walls are completely finished! Let's not talk about the wood work...floor...or ceiling. Celebrate the walls!
While cleaning and packing things I got stuck with a bookcase dilemma. This was the color of my bookcase:
Then I chose a white spray paint that didn't require any primer. I was excited to give the spray paint a chance, particularly since each coat only needs 15 minutes to dry (WAY better than waiting 4 hours for paint from a can to dry before you can do another coat).
But I digress....here is the progress!
After the first coat of spray paint:
It did however take me 3 cans of spray paint...and it still has a blue-ish tint!
Here's a peak at what my garage is looking like these days:
While I was out spray painting in the back yard I came across some awesome tiny pinecones:
Hope everyone is enjoying May so far, 9 days until my birthday. Just sayin' :)
