Today we got a lot done, but it ended on a frustrating note. We completed the tile on the laundry room, finished up the paint on the laundry room, and got a long way down the road towards painting the kitchen. BUT, it rained quite a bit starting at 4pm and we didn’t complete as much as we had hoped. We don’t know yet whether the rain washed away out paint. Furthermore, the storm knocked out our power right in the middle of dinner prep. It is still out hours later. We were able to finish cooking because everything is gas here. So I’m posting this in the dark and hoping that we have power for tomorrow’s tasks.
