The plastering is done. Done. Done. Done.
Now the entry room walls match the rest of the house, and I didn't have to rip out the five different kinds of wallboard/paneling in order to do it too.
The next step is to prime the whole room with Kilz (gotta love rusty nail heads and water damage).
However, the next project I need to focus on is the fact that we are going to Michigan Thursday evening, to make up for the 4th of July trip we missed thanks to the Stupid Fucking Foot.
We are scheduled to leave Thursday after dinner and I will drive us all night (750 miles, this should be fun); then we'll leave Sunday after dinner and I will drive us home through the night (another 750 miles, more fun). And, no, we still don't know if Aaron is coming with us or not.
In the case that Aaron does come with us, I hope to stay up super-late Wednesday night and prime the entry room. Then I can sleep half of Thursday away and make the super long drive without too many complications.
Needless to say, my mother-in-law is super excited we are coming up. Aaron's hometown is having the Apple Fest this weekend. Apparently there is a bake-off and my MIL wants to me enter something in it (like I'm going to be able to bake after being up all night long).
But I am quite certain that if my cookbook ever does get published, having a tag line of "Winner of the 2006 Coldwater, Michigan, Apple Fest Bake-off" will certainly make copies fly off the shelves like no one's business.
