I'm so excited! We finally picked someone to come paint the house and they're going to stain the deck too. They come on the 4th and 5th to do the painting, weather permitting. It's pretty sad that I'm so excited about this, but if we hadn't done it this year, I think we would have lost siding from the house. And the deck is in pretty bad shape. I think we'll have to take better care of it next year. Or maybe just sell the damned house.
