man i'm so tired

ugh. work at the 'hive was so long today. elaine and i attempted to paint these old {ten years plus my age} wicker etageres with off-white spray paint. we decided that we needed to get outside b/c of the fumes, but. . . it turns out we did not have adequate permission to paint in the loading dock. love working with people who work for banks - so many rules.

as it turns out, we were spraying fumes down into the bank of america vault! ha. . . it took three different security guards to kick us off the property until we finally got the message.

we solved the days crisis with a paint can, drop cloth, and some brushes. i am still covered with paint and still have a long thursday and saturday of painting ahead of me!

even though i'm tired and have next to no energy, i still think i could be a house painter for a living. i just really love paint and getting dirty.

other stuff -

* this book both annoys me and makes me miss my darling ytt. asheville friends i still think we should all just move to a colony together! it has been really crazy reading about the protagonist - whose name just so happens to be grace - and her training. strange enough, there was a stephanie, mark, and sarah in her training too! i just happened to stumble upon this book while i was with little ruthie in the library and i needed something new. . .

*it still weirds me out the think abby & guion are married and living in charlottesville! i love them and miss them always and i'm jealous k gets to go visit before i do. . . a & g when can i come up and see you too?

* i'm headed to chapel hill this labor day - the 8th!

* tennis is one of the best sports to watch on tv - thanks us open for providing me with great background noise. dad says in need to learn how to run so i'm studying up! : )
