I think I work harder on my days off than I do at work. After a day off of work like yesterday, I’m more than happy to come back to work and sit in a chair all day! My back is hurting – but so are other muscles I didn’t even know I had.
This is what I did yesterday –
After a few hours of cutting – I ran out of tile! Go figure – I thought I had bought 10% extra like the experts suggest. Thankfully the store had more (as this was a closeout sale – $0.68 per sq ft. Yeah, baby!) and I welcomed the mid-afternoon break from the tedious work.
So even though I sent my SIL a text message saying “Girls can do anything boys can do – but better!” with a picture of my almost finished tile job, I do have a new found appreciation for the many, many tile jobs that Seth has taken on in the last few years. While I’m proud to say that I did this job all by myself, and I now know that I too can conquer a tile floor – I definitely don’t want to do it again any time soon. In fact, I’m not even really looking forward to grouting. ugh. More time spend on my knees bent over the tile – yuck! But it will look soooo good when it’s done. And I love a done project!
Over the weekend I also finished the patching, priming and painting. And I even installed two sconce lights and an overhead light. All by myself. Without electrocuting myself or setting the house on fire.
Can you hear my head getting bigger with my little project? I can! I’m pretty proud of myself – just call me Martha Villa! I can cook/clean/craft/bake a la Martha Stewart and I can dominate a remodel job just as good (well maybe not) as Bob Villa.
