The girls are switching rooms; Emily going upstairs and Laura coming down.
They began last Monday to stage the move.
I didn't go up, but I assume Laura had as many piles of stuff as Emily.
Emily's room Friday afternoon, after school.
Toby considers the potential.
Friday night after supper.
A room that glows will not work for Laura.
Dust and hardware removal.
I suggested old clothes would be in order.
Prep work has given way to primer.
Laura's first go at painting a room.
Two coats of primer and the glow was gone.
Two very tired young women went to bed about ten.
Early Saturday morning.
Except for telling them to paint the ceiling first, they were left to their own devices.
I dubbed this The Great Painter's Tape Caper.
Fortunately we bought the four roll economy pack.
Laura, promoted to ceilings.
Emily's shirt with hand prints is an old school project.
Laura's hand prints indicate another paint roller has done its job.
The radio is in the box. Across the hall, I overdosed on teenage music.
It was OK.
It is still Saturday. Four hours each, Friday night, all day Saturday.
There was a lunch break.
After supper they carried down some essential furniture.
Assembled the bed.
Laura slept downstairs.
Little feet ran up and down stairs most of the day.
I believe it's all moved in.
And now it all goes back together.
I imagine the same thing is going on upstairs.
This was their project and the two of them worked through it.
My contribution was supplies, especially the four pack of painter's tape.
I was impressed.
I cleaned the smear of paint off the door and the door jam without complaint.
