Well, if you want to know how to spend a long weekend just stick around with us. 
 
Painting.  2 full days of painting.  You would think that we were painting the entire condo from top to bottom, but no, we only painted one room really.  Just the main room and the ajacent entry way.
 
Day 1: Get Paint, supplies and rent big assed scafolding step ladder thingame.  We got the paint from glidden where we had coupons for the paint, but had to deal with a couple of kids who didn’t have grade 6 math skills.  Then laydown hugh sheets of plastic to cover the entire floor and then some, tape and then paint the walls green.  Actually the color is "iconic green", which isn’t quite green, but almost.  It is more of a greenish/beige.  I haven’t decided yet, if I really like the color or not, but we will see.  Highlight of the day was spilling an entire gallon of paint on the floor, damn was I glad that I bought the hugh sheets of plastic to cover the entire floor or that could have been really bad.  The other neat thing was the rented step ladder thing.  It could be set up like a scaffold so you could do almost the whole wall without moving it.  Quite nice, but it requires at least a length of 12+ feet to set the darn thing up, which means I probably won’t rent it again simply because the size allows it to just fit in most of the rooms in the condo.
 
Day 2: Trimming.  Can you believe that, 10 hours of doing the trim at the top and bottom of the wall.  It felt like we were never going to finish that darn stuff, but we did and now the tape and plastic have all been removed and it almost looks good (damn green).
 
Day 3: Golf 🙂
 
Catch you later.
