the couple that paints together

I hurt.


Mike and I spent the entire day working on a project that involves ladders, heavy lifting, and lots and lots of paint.  And for those of you that don’t know this about my husband…he doesn’t paint.  Which left all the painting to me.  Even painting high off the floor.  So for the second day in a row, the woman with vertigo, was climbing a ladder to paint along the ceiling. 

The good news is…I didn’t fall.  The bad news is…I feel like I did.  My body hurts from my fingers to my toes and everywhere in between.  I have taken the appropriate dosage of over the counter pain reliever and I’m waiting for it to kick in. 

Still…it was a good day. 

Mike got a lot accomplished on his end of the project, and I finished all of mine.  It’s nice to have days like today, working together, getting things done. 

And hey, the snow is finally melting around here.  Can I just say, I’m going to miss it?  A little.  But I wouldn’t mind a little early spring around here.  My mother just reminded me that it’s almost Girl Scout cookie season again, and that screams spring.  Say it with me…Thin Mints!

But for now, my medicine is finally kicking in and I’m going to go to sleep.

Until the next time…I’ll be starting the week with a smile and a few aches and pains!
