Priscilla and I spent Monday-Thursday painting Mrs. R.’s house in Texarkana. We failed to remember our basic rule of redecorating – Take the number of days expected for completion and multiply by two.
That’s the way things have always worked. In Grand Prairie, Texas, we decided to install a shower stall. A weekend should be enough time. Not so. Five days. Other projects have been the same.
You do not know the condition of a house until you begin repairing and painting. Then, the things you saw multiply by a factor of several.
We will get the job done.
