I hope they were the last ones, anyway. Seems there are always more lying in wait for me somewhere...
Several commenters jumped at the concept of Paint Camp the other day and even offered some other useful variations, such as laundry camp and housework camp and (my favorite) pooper-scooper camp. I admire your enthusiasm, ladies. I'm thinking we need to start a franchise.
Brian and I painted the kitchen cabinet frames and doors today in Paint Camp. Green Girl in Wisconsin pointed out in the comments that the problem with painting is that it never ends -- there's ALWAYS something else to paint. I'm here to affirm that she is correct. Today was supposed to be kitchen cabinets. But then I realized that we needed to do the baseboards and shoe-molding, too. AND I finally had a chance to paint the bare wood parts of the pantry that no one could see until the pantry door fell off a few years ago.
We have a problem with doors, by the way.

Oh, well, I'll just add them to the list.
Although, really, the one in the front hall has taken after its predecessor and insists on falling out whenever it feels like it. So maybe I won't bother. Maybe I'll just get rid of it. I don't need no stinkin' door. How about a storage bench at the bottom of the open closet for shoes and umbrellas and all the other stuff instead? And I could tear out the closet rod and mount several hooks on the back wall for coats and such. Because heaven forbid ANYONE in this house learn how to use a hanger...
Hanging up clothes? Is that an activity for Laundry Camp?
