Yes, this is me blonde.
Anyways, this is me painting around the crawl space at my house.
I do lots of things people don't think I'm able.
I know more about the guts of a home and it's yard than the average person would care to.
People assume that, one because I'm a girl that I wouldn't have a clue.
And two I'm a girl in a wheelchair. (she needs to be in a corner knitting)!
This shouldn't be something that I should really be proud of, but I am.
I've sledged hammered the lath and plaster out of my kitchen. (the walls).
I've stained and cut wood with power saws, drilled holes.
I've work in the yard, pulling, digging, moving earth, laying sod, and planting.
I help with drywall, plumbing, and electrical.
I scraped tar off our floors and acoustic off the ceilings,sanded and painted.
All the while I designed, planned, and scheduled, and did a lot of clean up.
The designing and planning are of course my favorite parts.
But In order to make it nice there is a lot of labor involved.
Yeah I did need help getting up off the ground or help lifting heavy things, etc.
And yes the majority was done by my husband.
Yet still to this day, even people who we've showed and told of what we've done, say what a great job
that my husband did and always say that I picked out really good colors.
Even the people that saw us sweating our asses off, put me only in the color category.
Like I said in the beginning, people assume.
I love it when someone will ask my husband a construction type question,
I'll answer it, and they look at me like I don't know what I'm talking about.
They look at him like okay what do I really need to do,
and he'll say... she just told you.
