Yesterday I finally began work in the guest room! I couldn't stand it any longer. I have tried to be attentive to Jeff. To be available if he needed something. However, yesterday I started to do something. I stripped the boarder off. It may not sound like much, but the process took several hours. It was one of those boarders that the adhesive on the back was really good! It also was a vinyl paper, which makes it hard to remove easily. I will wash down the walls today, patch the holes (there must be about 50 holes...) Then I can paint! Woo-Hoo!

The downside to all of that is my shoulders and elbows ache! The Fibro is really kicked up today. Jeff warned me, but I couldn't stand waiting another moment!

This morning, Jeff went to work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One of our part time guys stopped by to pick him up, and he'll put in a half day. I feel like my old self -for a few hours anyway. I have to take him to the doctor this afternoon. Hopefully he'll be released to go back to work part time ...maybe.

I have so many things to do, so this is a short post. I'll keep you posted on the progress in the guest room.

Oh I just don't like getting that backing off the wall after a border has served it's purpose. I've never found an easy way to do it.
Glad you are past that part, now I guess you take some tylenol and fill those holes.
p.s. it was good to see you Sunday. I owe you an e-mail

Call one good massage therapist and you'll be better the next day!
