Windows: Day 1

Today sucked. That's really the only way to explain it.

When Brent and I bought our house in March 2006, one of the first things we planned to do was fix the white-trash-window situation we had going on. Three years later, we just now started getting around to it (nothing like the pace of leisure).

Today, we were outside in the Kansas heat from 9 to 5 scrapping, sanding and priming. We got more done today than I expected, especially with the hold ups. (Brent bought a non-paintable caulking, so when we noticed the primer bubbling up, he got the pleasure of re-scrapping that entire window. I don't think I've heard him say "God damnit" that many times in one day – especially when he knicked a window pane...twice).

Three out of the 4 windows have been primed. We took tomorrow off, and are hoping to have everything finished. At least the worst is done, well, aside from the fact that it's supposed to be 100 degrees tomorrow – there is nothing okay about that.

In other news: Brent and I did a home visit from Little White Dog Rescue tonight, and the couple was awesome. They are wanting to adopt a dog with special needs – so awesome.

In other news 2: I definitely managed to smack my face into a door frame earlier today – I had an instant bump on my forehead. I literally saw stars, and it scared the crap out of me. I blame my cordination issues on too much sun today.
