If I thought painting the upper cabinets was labor intensive … I seem to have pushed aside the fact that I have more lower cabinets than upper. Climbing up and down the stepstool and stretching to reach was a challenge, but nothing compared to trying to kneel and ending up sitting on the floor and then having to get back up a dozen times a day.
I think I growled at the UPS guy for making me get up to answer the door. Everything is looking fresh and clean inside all the cabinets. I have installed 8 rolls of shelf paper and need more. All the while filling the dumpster with useless things I tend to tuck away for whatever reason. HeWho saves straws. Lots of straws in every single drawer in the kitchen. All eight of them. HeWho drinks Diet Coke exclusively retired his old plastic Bubba mugs in favor of his stainless steel cup. He was not a fan of the straw that came with the Bubba mug, preferring the smaller straws you get at fast food establishments. There was a thin red one he preferred and he would always ask for more than one straw when he purchased a beverage (always Diet Coke).
The stainless steel did not come with a straw, much to his dismay, but the skinny red straw fit his needs. His most favorite Christmas gift from me was a package of three stainless steel straws that I happened upon strolling down the aisle in Walmart on one of those clippy things hanging on a shelf in the grocery section. There were only two sets. I have not seen one since.
I have one side finished, top and bottom. I painted the inside of my tiny pantry last night before I went to bed and the cans and boxes are waiting to be put away this morning. I slept late. Well, until 9, which is what was 8 before changing to daylight savings time. My coffee is digesting and a hot shower is calling my name. I need to soothe my old muscles and bones before this day's workout!
