The painters are here. They are redoing some walls and ceilings downstairs. In order to leave everything place they’ve covered the furniture and appliances in plastic (and in turn have covered the plastic with dust and chips).
Fumes from the paint are wafting through the house. When I got downstairs it was like a scene from a low budget horror movie! It just looked spookily surreal.
There are a lot more stages before we’re done, but at least we’re getting there. Or, maybe this is like Murphy Brown? Maybe Eldon (in our case Ed and Will) will be with us permanently.
