This and That.

I know I haven’t written in here lately, but if you have followed my tweets, you’ll know what I’ve been up too.  Besides the destroying of a wall in the house and building something else to put in it’s place, I’ve been painting.  Well both my hubby and I have been painting.  He’s also been putting up new drywall, as well as plastering & sanding it.  He done the biggest wall that goes from the main floor to the upstairs and let me tell you the amount of dust that came from it.  HOLY HANNAH!!!  I had to chain on the dog and open up the front and back doors.  All that dust wasn’t good for me, considering I sneeze like crazy when just doing the usual light dusting around the house. 🙂

Anyway, the biggest project is done now, so later today when hubby gets home from work, he’ll use the regular sand paper to finish off the wall.  Then we can prime and paint it.  I can’t wait for that one.  I got the colors already.  Well for the upstairs anyway.  But I have an idea what to do with that big main wall.  And I think it’s gonna look awesome when it’s done.

But for now, I’ll be getting the upstairs taken care of.  Laundry, stripping the beds, sweeping and mopping the floors, and the stairway.  Then I can concentrate on the downstairs.  Which is the main floor.  It’s days like this I wish we had a basement.  But when they built these houses, they put them all on a concrete slab.  Though, don’t worry, when it’s all done, I’ll be getting pictures of the fruits of our labor, 🙂

We are aiming to have this all done before we head off on our camping trip.  That’s right, our annual autism camp at Lion’s Max Simm’s Memorial Camp.  Don’t worry, I’ll make notes and blog about our time there as well.  As I’m the camp DJ, I need to go over the songs and make sure I have all the right cables to hook up the laptop to the stereo speakers for both dances.  They have one for the kids, and 2 for the adults.  It’s a lot of fun.  Maybe this time I’ll see about playing a video for you all to see the fun.  With everyone’s permission of course. 🙂

The only difference for this time around is that we don’t have our camper.  We sold it.  We don’t use it enough times throughout the year to justify on keeping it.  So I put it up on Kijiji.  BEST SITE EVER!!!  Especially if you want to sell something fast.  I put it up on a Saturday, and it was sold the next day.  I’m sure some of you like using NFClassifieds, but I was impressed by Kijiji, so most likely that is the one I’ll be using from now on.

Between getting the house put back together and getting ready for our camping trip, I have a script to write.  I’m not saying what it’s going to be about quite yet, but it’s something that I’ve never seen done anywhere else.  I’ll be meeting up with the producer of Hann-Made Productions tomorrow to discuss it.  I’m excited plus nervous at the same time.  I’ve never took on such a project this big before.  Not only am I writing the script for this, but my name will be going in the film credits.  So that in itself is making me bite what nails I have left.  Though, knowing the producer like I do, he’ll probably put my name in a few places, *facepalm*

Anyway, I need to head off and find some breakfast before I start on my day.  Hope you all have a great Monday.

Until next time.

Karen, XOXO
