than staying indoors peeling and scraping wallpaper off the kitchen walls. I have hated the purple walls and the grape themed wallpaper ever since we moved in. And now, over 3 years later I am finally getting around to making the change. I think the prior owners were maybe going for an Italian winery theme, but not really sure. I even love a glass or two of wine with dinner, so you would think that I would like the theme. However, it has to go! It took me 4 hours to get the border down and I have spent 2 1/2 hours on the wallpaper and still have a good portion yet to go. I have recruited Wes to help me tomorrow and hopefully the two of us can finish it up. Next week Wes's Dad, Lauretta, and my Dad are spending a few days with us and we are doing some much needed home improvement projects...wall & ceiling paint, new kitchen cabinet doors & hardwear & new doors. I am so excited. My mom has graciously agreed to babysit the girls for a couple of days and this will help us get so much more done without two little ones around.
ETA 9/27: Wes's recruitment was successful. I sprayed and peeled while he scraped. Pretty good teamwork if you ask me and we finished the wall in less than 2 hours.
