Instead of letting it frustrate me that I was a month behind schedule, I looked for the things I could and should do while prepping for painting.
Perhaps to help those of you who wish you could be doing the same thing feel a little better, I want to share in this post some of the things that I do have trepidation about, because there are some. I accept that, in exchange for the excitement and wonder and adventure, there will be things that aren’t so great.
There’s a good possibility that before I’m done, I will also have read Kerouac’s On The Road, and maybe a good many other road books. But I rather doubt that any of them will have the impact on me that another book did.
After making an appointment for the installation earlier in the week using a very simple and fast online reservation interface, I showed up at the Uhaul Store off 25th Street in Easton for the trailer hitch and electrical harness installation.
I can’t paint or wallpaper yet without worrying about things being affected by the cold, so I started with a task that didn’t depend on it being nice and warm, just tolerable. I began installing the kitchen backsplash.
