Is there a Doctor in the house? That is the question I wanted to ask this morning.:)
I believe every bone in my body aches from climbing ladders, bending over, kneeling down, reaching up and over and just basically doing tasks that I haven’t done in a while.
OK! I haven’t done in a long, long, long time! 🙂
I can hardly move this morning, my Blogger buddies…
I got out of bed stumbling around. I couldn’t make my legs work! 🙂
Have you ever been stiff and sore after doing tasks you haven’t done in a while?
The Captain and I have a rental property that needed repainting and a bit of refurbishing after the tenants moved out.
We decided to paint the cabinets white….a cleaner, fresher look, we said. Plus, we repainted every room. It is not a very big house.
Until one starts painting!
Guess who got the job of “Perfection Painter”? Me of course!
The Captain said I am very good at using the putty to fill nail holes and smoothing it out!
He said I should be called… “Persevering Putty Partner”!
The Captain painted all the large surfaces, but I was the only one of the two of us to be able to use the paint brush to “cut in” around baseboards, ceilings, windows and cabinets. The Captain said I was the “Tenacious Trimmer”
Of course I was good at sanding and earned the title of…“Superior Sander”
And planting plants…“Landscaping Director”
Come to think about it…the Captain gave me a lot of titles and the prestige that goes with…He is so thoughtful!
As I write this post…I beginning to see a picture!
You know what I am thinking?
Do any of you remember the movie with Andy Griffith titled “No Time For Sergeants”!
If I remember correctly, the Sergeant in the Army gave the Private, (Andy Griffith) special titles. For example, the Sergeant told Andy Griffith to clean all the Bathrooms on the Army Base! In an effort to make this mundane task seem important to the Private (Andy), the Sergeant gave Andy the title of “Private Latrine Orderly” ! Andy was so proud of this title and strutted around the Army Base bragging about his NEW position to all of his buddies in the Army.
Wait just a dog gone minute!
Do you think the Captain is doing the same thing to me? Hmmmmmm… ?
I think the Captain and I need to have a talk! 😉
Now where did he go off to? He was here just a few minutes ago!
He was looking over my shoulder at my post.
More to come……….
Hi Sis, So your title must be the QA….Quality Assurance!:)

You know Francis everything has to be perfect so I’m never in charge of painting I just have to do the clean up work. So I’m not sure which is the better job. I get to clean the brushes after he is done I get to clean the windows wipe down the wood work and so on and so on. It sucks either way. You should be very proud to have all the responsibilities he has faith in you.
I believe you have the Captain pegged right Sandy…. today he left me “in charge” while he ran errands.
You know this isn’t my first rodeo… there was no one to be “in charge of”, except me! And I gave myself the afternoon off! 🙂
Men! Mine is so sloppy I wouldn’t dare let him paint close to corners, or in small crevices. Yep, he’s pulling a doozy on you. lol
So cute:). Soon you will be Kaptain Kari!
You are so right Candis! I think the Captain sees that in my future. 🙂 I think I will call in sick tomorrow!
