|This is the before. It is dark purple with gold.|
|Red paint from a previous time was on the ceiling. The picture shows the color of the purple better than the other one.|
Mama says her technique would not be approved of by Dad, but she got the job done and she thinks it looks just fine. It took her about five hours and Dad said that was really good considering she did it all on her own and had to move furniture, etc.
How many coats of paint do you think it took? It only took one thanks to the paint that has primer in it.
|This is the room now. It is a sand color.|
Dad arrived in Jamaica without any issues. His cell phone doesn't work there, so last night he called us from an office phone. We are not sure he will be allowed to do that on a daily basis. He knows the general manager there, so it may not be an issue. We think he is going to enjoy his stay there more than St. Thomas.
We were asked what Dad does for a living. He works for a major hotel chain. He fills in for managers when their position are empty. That is why we don't have much notice as to where we are going or for how long because the position could be filled quickly or it might take months.
Guess what? I have been running in the yard! In case you don't know my story, I had a leg injury and had not been allowed to run before our HUGE adventure began. I had two surgeries in the nine months that I lived here. Well, I guess I did run once before we left, but now I am legal. Scout and I ran and ran on Sunday. Last night, I was running and stopped to dig a hole. Mama says we have a mole in the yard and that's why the ground collapsed and now we have a deep hole. The yard is now closed to us until she fills it with dirt. She says we could put our leg in the hole and get hurt. It never ends. I started digging another hole and Mama said "Joey, are you digging another hole?" I quickly laid on the hole so that she couldn't see it. I'll finish it later. BOL
