Well, fooey…

Oil Painting Workspace

I know I promised an exciting (Ha! :)) photo essay on repainting Tomcat’s room for today’s Photo Friday post, but the thing is, well…we’re not done.  Oh, I’ve got a few before pictures, and we’ve got two coats of primer on the ceiling, plus a coat of paint and three coats of paint on the walls and two coats of paint on the radiator (I won’t be sorry to see that thing go as soon as we can afford to redo our heating and lack of cooling system).  But the plastic is still on the bed and the floor, the tape is still on the light fixtures and the woodwork, and every night this week, we’ve looked at that wallpaper border and sighed with exhaustion.  Also loathing.  Maybe even a few other things.

So with no pretty, pretty after pictures to show off, I’m going to wait on that post-bedroom-remodeling post I had planned.  Seymour wants to get the border put up Sunday, so maybe one day next week, I’ll get it done.  That sounds like a nice, reasonably distant time.

Meanwhile, today is the day for the entries to fly in the agent pitch contest for GUTGAA (short for Gearing Up To Get An Agent).  My entry didn’t make it into the morning pitch session, which literally filled up in seconds.  Amazingly, we didn’t break Gmail. 🙂  The afternoon session starts in mere minutes.  I had my finger hovering over the send button on my email this morning and my eye on the clock; I hit send as soon the clock hit 11:00 a.m. (well, 10:00 a.m. here), but I was just a bit too slow.  Hopefully the afternoon session won’t be quite as crazy as the morning.  There are 200 available slots; 100 remain as of this moment.

Okay, I just hit send.  Let the waiting begin.

THIS JUST IN: I MADE THE CUT!!!
