One of my students made me madder than I ever have been before.
I almost threw something heavy at him.
I mean, not really, of course. But my level of irritation was raised. And he’s an avid reader of this blog, so he’ll see this soon enough. Or rather, he reads most of it. Because today, he said to me :
Student : “So, when are you going to paint the outside of your house?”
Me : “Wait. What? Are you kidding?”
Student : “I mean, it’s not… you know. I mean, the house next door looks so nice.”
Me : “Do you mean my porch? Because that’s not done yet.”
Student : “No, I mean your house.”
Not only has he read the blog, but he’s delivered pizza to me when Doug and I have been sick because he’s – really – a pretty stellar and phenomenal kid. So, HE’S BEEN TO MY HOUSE AND THINKS IT NEEDS PAINT.
I went right to the blog to point out everything he’s missed. And I realized that – while there are a ton of exterior shots from before on the page – I never put up the really, really awful ones that my contractor took from up close, before and during the project.
So, let’s take a quick trip down memory lane to prove that, in fact, my house has been painted. And then some. I’m not even going to caption these. Because WHY.
Tomorrow, I bet I hear : “Guys! I made her blog!”

You know, student, if you want to earn some money and experience this summer, you could work with Mrs. Heavilin on her house . . . be part of the solution . . .
Funny – when he read the post months ago about how we had the IU chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi out to help, he asked quite often if he would be allowed to help now or next year when he is in college. He really wants to knock down a wall, so next time we have one to do, I’m letting him. 🙂
