Weekend Update

Well I know most of you have confidence in my Lap Lady but I'm not so sure about this getting done....They don't even have all of the wallpaper off yet and then they have to scrape and sand the trim and THEN they have to paint. By they I mean the Tall Man has actually decided to pitch in and help in an effort to sleep in their own bed as soon as possible.

Oh and Latte has the squirts. So yeah its not a great 3 day weekend as of yet.

Oh No! Poor Latte - what a weekend!

OH poor latte.
I hope he feels better soon. Squirts can be good, what ever is irritating is coming out! just water down any foods to keep the fluids up. Tuna juice even, but not too salty.

Remving wallpaper, did not realize you had to do that. try lots of white vinegar, buy a big old cheap jug of the stuff and a couple of sponges.
take a knife and make just a few light cuts in thepaper and saturate with vinegar. the paper will peel right off, trust me. I had mountains of that horrid stuff to remove in this house. Those chemicals the hardware store sells are expensive and do not work!

I hope Latte feels better soon. That sounds like a very big job your mom is undertaking. It's nice that she has help.

Yikes! I hope Latte gets over those squirts, and that everything with the wallpaper goes smoothly from here on out.

OH Latte, you are far too stressed about your snoopervising. You really must come and relax!

The Big Thing has a rool about house projects. "No matter what you want to to, you have to do something else first"

And he has a time-esimating trick. Esimate the time. Double it. Then change the units (hours to days, days to weeks, whatever). He says it is pretty accurate.

Just be grateful the Lap Lady 'n Tall Man haven't painted you white and suggested bathing you! That's what DIY causes honest... :(

My people are lazy and would have painted over the paper.

I hope Latte feels better fast. The squirts are just uncomfortable.

I thought your LL was only painting. Removing wallpaper is a big PITA, I mean project.

I hope Latte's over his squirts today.

You didn't tell us that WALLPAPER was involved. Ugh. Our sympathies to your lap lady.

And get well wishes to you, dear Latte!

Love,

Come on Lap lady! We know you can do it. Hey, why don't you three help? Claws are good for stripping wallpaper.
We hope Latte's squirts are getting better.

We hope Latte feels better soon. I fink you would do a great job snoopervising.

When I voted yes I didn't know that they had to take off wallpaper. If that had been known I would have said NO. Mum has taken down wallpaper and knows it takes time.

Purrs to Latte that he feel better soonest.
