Bad Planning

I got a new garage door last Monday. It is beautiful. However, after they were done, there was a teeny little trim of wood around the garage door that needed to be painted white. Well, I bought white paint for that, and since I was painting that, I thought I would get rid of the green trim on my front porch that used to go with my garage door - since the garage door is now white, I would paint the entire trim on the front porch white. Well, then my front door is green, and we can't have that! So, I purchased a quart of RED paint with which to paint my front door. Well, and then there is the caulking that has to be done. Anyone who has ever painted knows that this did not get done on Friday night, or even Saturday afternoon. This I just finished, and I still need to put another coat of paint on the front door, but it ain't happening this weekend. (getting a green door RED is a big friggin' deal. I had no idea. If I knew, the door would still be green, believe me.)

I did run 5 miles yesterday. I felt awful. I chalked it up to being tired. But when I woke up last night with my nose dripping and my throat feeling like there was a large bottle brush stuck in it, I decided that maybe I am tired because I am sick. Crap.

I am 4 weeks out from a race, I simply do not have time to get sick! I am going now to get stuff to make spaghetti sauce for dinner, then I am going to come home, put it in a pot to simmer and go to bed.

hope you make a speedy recovery. get some rest and lots of OJ. I, of course, would know nothing about painting but I imagine it is more involved than changing light bulbs.

Sorry you aren't feeling well either! It just must be that time of the year.

I'm notorious for biting off more than I can chew with regard to painting. LOL. I totally relate to that story.

Paint??? Isn't that something that is supposed to be applied with the fingers?

I hope you get to feeling better. I'm excited for your marathon coming in October.

Good news!!!! I finished my marathon yesterday!!! Short report on my blog now with a longer race report to follow later today.

Hang in there, take lots of fluids and plenty of Vitamin C.

Wow, hope you are feeling better!! You'll make it.

Primer paint sometimes help when you make a big color change.
