Brandon started painting Eli's "big boy" room upstairs. What he didn't realize is it's the room from hell to paint because almost the entire room is trim/windows/doors/closet/cubby holes etc. Basically, almost the entire room has to be painted by HAND! GAG! There seriously are like 8 windows and barely any wall and it is a large room. We are on our 3rd can of paint and it is obvious that the trim and walls are going to take THREE coats to hide the gray color that it already was and the ugly murals. This is just the primer people! I've been squeezing in time during Eli's naps and after he goes to bed. We are in a heat advisory all week (105-110 degrees). Needless to say, we've been out on walks to the park/playground around 6:30 a.m. to beat the heat. We've been able to get quite a bit of outside time during the early morning. Brandon took Eli to the library yesterday and finally got the puppet show schedule figured out. Twice a week at 10:30. Perfect! We're going to take Eli tomorrow to see how he likes it. Cool and free :-) Brandon has been teaching Eli all sorts of things while he's been home this week....like screaming....oh great!
