Beware the Ides of March

Another thing that I don’t like about spring is that, come springtime, you feel compelled to get back to those home improvement projects that you’ve managed to avoid all winter. Case in point, my basement.

Boy Wonder and I decided over the winter that we would paint our basement, and now the time has come to face the music. Turns out this is gonna be a multi-phase project. First step was cleaning the floor. Our house was built in 1940 and, judging from the sheer amount of filth that came up, no one had taken water and brush to that floor in those 64 years!

I can’t begin to guess at how many hateful curses I’ve thrown at all the former inhabitants of my house. They must be dead from my malice. None of them ever did ANYTHING! Filthy, malodorous perverts! No matter how much we swept, the crud kept coming.

Anyway, today we went over it again with soap. Starting tomorrow, I get to paint the walls. Then we go for the floor on Saturday. Sunday is the voodoo ritual where we burn effigies of the former owners.

    you could speed up the time it takes by attaching a paintbrush to the Galdalf. I bet he’d be glad to help.. TEE HEE!
