Summer seems to bring out the home improvement in me. Which is why the Mr and I have undertaken the ginormous task of painting the interior of our house. every. single. wall. Not a mind-blowing task, but it started out with just painting the kitchen, then blossomed into, why don't we paint all the walls that are still "builder white"? So, as I take a break from day 3 of painting to let the world know I am still very much alive, I thought I'd share the #1 thing I've learned about painting.
Don't paint at the same time as your spouse. This will result in numerous arguments about technique/errant paint/touch ups. Pick a job for each of you. The only reason we're still standing is that I tape and edge and then the Mr fills in with the roller.

so are you saying you don't want to do any home improvement projects while you're here???

Damn...that's everything I had planned.

You're so ambitious! That's awesome. I don't think I could even paint with my husband in the same county. Just sayin.
