Cross Training

This afternoon, Jerry and I decided to begin the painting process in the baby's room. This room used to be our guest bedroom, and it looked like this before: This afternoon, it looked like this:
Because the existing paint in that room was a dark gray-ish-blue, we thought it might be smart to start with a coat of primer, so after taping off, I got to work on priming the walls (Jerry was busy with another project: installing new blinds in our bedroom). So, here I am with roller in hand:
And here's my project supervisor:
Home projects make Scooter kinda nervous, so he feels as though he must be right next to you while you work -- just in case he must rush in and save you from a large person-eating-paint-can. By in large, he's not much help (those little paws don't hold a paint brush very well), and he's mostly just in the way, but I still think he's cute.

And, lastly, here's me nearing the end of the priming process. I kinda look like a little Budha, don't I?
After Jerry and I finished each project and cleaned up, we were both pooped. (I forgot how tiring painting can be.) So, no run for me this evening; instead, I think we're going to have some dinner now and sit back with a movie for the evening.

And tomorrow? We paint the real paint!

Painting is a workout! You supervisor looks like he likes to micromanage.

I'm like your dog, I get nervous when I remodel my house too.

We need more naked pictures of that belly!

Aw yay for getting the room ready. I am so jealous... since we're in the middle of move or not moving, we're not making any changes to the room in our existing house that will be designated as baby's, if we're still here.

Be careful with those paint fumes Mama!!!

Painting is a lot of work but it will look so nice when it's all finished. Glad to see Scooter is there to make sure everything goes smoothly!
