...the race blog turns to home improvement projects. But I have a good excuse, namely: moving, rainy weather, and getting sick. The perfect storm for some remodeling. And the best part is the home's not really mine to remodel, and the home improvements are all a surprise! Pretty exciting times right now. I also chose some not too subtle colors because I'm tired of dreary, frumpy home insides. I mean, no wonder everyone here has SAD, everything is beige. I think I can actually synthesize Vitamin D from this color scheme:
I also have a new best friend, who's actually the same as my old best friend. We'll be spending lots of quality time together the next few months, and she's been a HUGE help with all the painting. Here she is just taking a quick breather:

So it should be pretty clear that in just a week of idle time I've totally lost it and need to get back to training. It IS good to be back on west coast time though; I'm happy to report I can now sleep later than 6am and stay up past 10pm. I have just two more weeks to enjoy the simple life then it's off to Dana Point. Then I'm home for a few days, then off again to the southeast for a month. And just like that the season will be ON, and I can stop worrying about things like eggshell finish and cutting in, and get back to the important business of crushing it.
