Certifiably Insane...

Yesterday, I wrote about how the painting was nearly finished -- today, I asked Lee (we're back to our original contractor, now that he feels better) to paint another bedroom and bathroom. I'm insane, I know, but painting those upstairs rooms won't be as disruptive as the rest of the house has been -- and he needs the work. So, what the hey... I really need the rest of the house painted as well but I probably need to get the already-painted part of the house back together before I start on anything else. Somebody stop me before I tell him to just go ahead...

Yesterday, after everyone had gone, I let the dogs back in the house. Neville (Boston Terrier) came in with a bloody and swollen eye. I don't know if it's because of fighting (there were no other indications of that) or roughhousing or being poked by something but I had to take him to the vet. They were short-staffed and had to work him in so I was there for nearly two hours. He's better today -- he has drops and an antibiotic ointment -- but I'm keeping him with me while the other dogs are having to stay out. Bug-eyed dogs' eyes are easy to injure and I don't want to make it worse.

I'm actually remaining quite calm during all of this. I remember when we added on to this house, I stood in the middle of it and cried my eyes out. Having people here for two months was just overwhelming. This is just Week 2 of painting so maybe I can hold it together awhile longer.

I need to stop watching HGTV, though, before I find something else I want to change around here...

Mark says just so it's not him...
