02/12/2016 – Helper Quint

For close to a decade, over the U.S. President’s Day/Valentine’s Day holiday weekend, our Mom was always out of town to speak at a convention. After last year’s bullying incident, she felt she had to give up attending those science fiction and fantasy writer conventions, and that left her unsure of what to do with herself during that time. She’s a productive one, one of those kinds of Moms who can’t sit still for long. Always doing something, always has a project going. You probably know the type.

So, she took a good look around and decided her much loved, but much outdated faux limestone painted ceilings had to go, especially the one in the kitchen. It’s pretty and makes the room cozy, but honestly, it does make it a bit dark in there. Bright white ceiling paint it will be, she’s decided. She’s on a clean and fresh kick, we think, and that’s fine as long as she doesn’t decide all our toys need a bath!

And who better to help and make sure she gets it done right? Me, of course! I’ll make sure she does a good job because I know a little something about painting.

Have a good and productive weekend! Don’t make me come over there to check your work!
