Hating Valentine's Day retroactively:

I've been working on stripping paint/sanding wood in my bathroom for a while now. My sloth in finishing this project wouldn't be a big deal, except I've removed the bathroom door to strip and sand it, which makes privacy an interesting concept when I have company over (assuming my company might want to pee at any point).

So I worked on the bathroom some more this weekend, and pulled out the same bits of newspaper I've been spreading on the floor (to protect it from stripper/make sawdust cleanup easier) since I started (no reason to not reuse it, right?) and realized from all the "I love my pookie" ads in The Stranger that this was the Valentine's Day issue, which means that I've been working on this over 2 months now. ARGH.

From Valentine's day to Tax Deadline day is about 2 months and a day. uncanny. Here's hoping I'm done by Memorial Day so I can shower with the door closed once again.
