The life of a porn addicted housewife.

We got the first floor all taped up and primed yesterday. Today we got the dining room painted and the paint cut in in the entrance room.
The walls are 10’ high and I think I have been up and down the ladder about eight billion times. My back is sore, my neck is stiff, and my legs are all wobbly.
We chose a pretty green for the dining room, a red-orange for the entrance room, and a marigold for the living room. All of the colors flow really nicely from one room to the next (there’s something I never thought I would say!) When the painting is finished we are going to take the carpet out of the living room, the entrance room, and the stairs. I have no idea what the condition of the wood is underneath, but I am going into it with an open mind. I know that the floors throughout the entire rest of the house are in great condition so they shouldn’t be too bad.
I am going to leave the kitchen as it is for now. It has a nice calm white wallpaper with tiny blue-green flowers. While it’s not what I would pick, it’s pretty enough for now. I would like to paint it a nice blue eventually.
When we get the first floor done we will move on to the second. I want to paint our bedroom coffee, coffee with cream, and marshmallow. That is what I did in Tampa and it came out really nice. I need to strip the paint off the floor boards and the built in wardrobe. Now what on earth possessed someone to paint it white???
We also need to update the faucets in the second floor bathroom. That’s minor though.
Here’s a question:
It’s pretty much a proven fact that 90 years ago people were shorter than they are today. So how come my back steps are so high? I am 5’9” and I have to practically drag myself up the steps. Odd!
God I love this house!!!!!!
I never imagined that we would ever have a house this nice or this big.
