Pointless

There's no point in buying a new mattress without a new bed underneath it, and no point in having the bedroom empty if you're not going to paint the floor like you've planned to for several years, right?

These were the discussion points in my head in June when Sweetie and I innocently began a teeny tiny renovation project.

Sadly, when I went out for my stroll with the doggie last night, nearly three months later, I still had white paint splotches on the back of my right thigh.

Here's why:

There's no point in painting the bedroom floor if you're not going to paint the baseboards, too.

There's no point in painting the baseboards if you don't paint the doorframes.

While you're painting the doorframes in the bedroom you'd better paint the door, too.

There's no point in painting the bedroom door if you're not going to paint the trim around the bedroom door in the hallway.

There are four more doors in the hallway, and there's no point in having just one of them trimmed out and painted.

There's also no point in painting out those other doors if you don't paint the baseboards in the hallway.

There's no point in painting the baseboards in the hallway if you don't also paint the window frames and the windows.

There's no point in painting the baseboards in the upstairs hall if you don't also paint the baseboards down the back stairs.

And really, there's no point in painting the baseboards in the back stairs if you don't also repaint the stairs themselves, which are in sore need of a new coat of something.

Please, please could someone point me to a lounger?
