Go away!

The painters are now 7 hours into day three of a two-day job, and while I am very happy with the results, I think I speak for all of us when I say, get the hell out of my house!

Uggh! I can imagine.

I'm glad you're happy with their work though. That makes it all worth it. :)

We did that last year with the floor people. Of which 1 spoke English. No heat in the middle of winter. I feel your pain.


Yikes! Maybe you should make sure they are not related to Murphy Brown's Eldon the Painter. I unfortunately once hired one of Eldon's cousins twiced removed......

Maybe they are waiting for their tip ;)

Glad it looks good, but do tell them to go home. It's obvious that your hot figure is keeping them rom finishing their work!

If it makes you feel any better, I'm four days into a TEN day visit from my husbands loser friend from high school. He asked if he could "bring a girl back to our house"...he's sleeping on an air mattress in my unborn child's nursery - if that gives you any idea of the level of guy I'm dealing with. It's all I can do not to shout "GET THE HELL OUT OF MY HOUSE" every moment.

Just thought you'd appreciate the knowledge that someone would give their right arm to trade places with you. ;)

Haha. They're going to be there to see you crown.

So, Erin's husband's friend sounds like a much worse option....
I hope you can enjoy painter-free peace and quiet soon!

Oh I HATE having people to my house to work HATE it with the firey passion of a thousand suns.

I hope they finish up soon. Will you be posting the pictures when they're done?

I feel for you. We just barely finished with our house and I don't miss our "house guests" one bit.

Don't be pissed at the painters. It's a diffucult job. I've been a painter at one of those KB homes, where Martha Stewart furnishes the joint and picks the paints. And I had to paint model homes while they wer being toured, without getting pain on any of the furnishings or the visitors. And that was a very tough task. Give them some slack, they will do a better job than you. And if you bring them a snack, they will love you forever and do an especially good job. At least if the boss man is half way cool. Maybe even bring them some burr.

Dude, would you rather paint the entire interior of your house yourselves? Because that's what we're doing. I tell you what - I'll appreciate not having strangers in my house while I'm painting, and you appreciate not having to paint while you have strangers in your house, and we'll both be better people for it.

I love that you and Chris had this all done at once. Hard to deal with I'm sure, but when it's all done it will be quite awhile before it needs to be done again. Plus, you two didn't have to paint.

I've painted plenty and I hate it every single time. It's so much work and cleanup.
