Git 'Er Done - Day Two

So, as I mentioned last week, this week will be "Git 'Er Done Week."  That means I'm going to tackle a lot of things I'm been meaning to do for a while.  They aren't glamorous, but sometimes you just gotta git 'er done.  

Our garage is kind of nasty.  I know, that's what most garages are like.  However there's a wooden stairway into the house that I vowed to paint as soon as we moved into the house.  That, my friends, was three and a half years ago.  Well, yesterday was the day.  Yesterday we had some bad weather.  It was cold and it snowed.  I thought about waiting for a sunny day when the kids could play outside while I painted.  Then I thought, "It's now or never Cherdog.  Suck it up."  I have to be a little forceful with myself.  It is git 'er done week, you know.

So here are the disgusting before shots.


Yeah, I know.  So gross.  Can we still be friends?

Here's the after.

The white wall next to it is still yucky, but I have to paint the entire wall if I want to cover it since I don't have the original paint.  I guess we'll save that for another git 'er done week.

Rex cheered me one.  It took a lot longer than I thought it would with those spindles.  3 hours.  Whew!  And that was even with using a small roller.

I was on such a high after getting that done that I decided to clean out my purse.  I found 500 receipts, 2 unwrapped rollos, and who knows what else.  Ugh!  I swear it was clean 2 weeks ago!

So, I got it down to the necessities - phone, wallet, change wallet, pens, sticky notes, Ibuprofen, hand sanitizer, chapstick, earhpones, a hair elastic, and JoAnn's coupons.  Ah!  I feel better.

This week it making me feel so empowered.  I love it.  Are you playing along?  We're going to have a LINK PARTY on Friday so you can all show me what you checked off your list this week.  Woo-hoo!

Alright, that's all for today.  Thanks for reading my blog.  I like you :)
