{pickin' boogers & toe curling boo boo's}

Kickin' off the weekend on one of the hottest day's of 2008 with a project of finishing up painting the back room of the house. I am usually the paint supervisor because Mark doesn't like me to paint, I'm not sure why. I know that when I did a wall in my scrapbook/den room that was chocolate brown it came out drippy, but honestly it was the paint. This weekend Mark had to go into work and we had one roller left and just a few walls, he had done the "cutting" in and I said that I've got to finish it up and he reluctantly agreed, and woo-hoo i was in, but boy oh boy, I am out of shape because I am sore again today (after 2 days). The only thing that i had a huge irritation with is the paint boogers that would come onto the wall that i would have to pick off, what causes those? Mark said it was the tray, but I just couldn't figure out how a tray would cause big globby boogers to come onto the wall when painting.

And then for the boo-boo portion of the weekend, poor Markie poo..... he fell off of his bike and has the biggest toe curling bruises to prove it. He went to the doc this AM and spent the biggest portion of his morning to find out that he has deeeply bruised ribs, gave him Tylenol, Tylenol 4, and sent him back to work. He has been moaning in pain for 2 days. Poor guy, hopefully he starts to heal soon..

Paint boogers ... snicker!

Is the paint kinda old? Did you stir it up really good?

Painting is so fun... well, not really. But I really do love the finished product!

I've given up trying to paint. No matter what I do, it doesn't turn out right and then it drives my husband insane.

I hope the boo boos heal quickly!

I paint when Kev goes on a business trip because he is sooo picky. I tell him all the time that there is reason why accidents are called accidents and it applies to paint too!
Paint boogers form when the old paint dries in the tray and you add new wet paint to it. Now you have a wonderful slimy mixture of old and new..I totally never thought about calling them paint boogers but that is totally spot on!
Now put the paint brush down go and make a card or two for my new blog :)

I'm so relieved they were paint boogers. When I read your title I thought you were going to tell us you actually had to scrape actual boogers off the wall before you painted. Now that's a big fat eeewwwwww!! On another note...sorry about Mark. Bike accidents scare me. Evan just had one a few weeks ago going down a big hill. Imagine...not pretty.Poor guy.

I have always been told that paint boogers as you so wonderfully call them are caused by lint from the rollers and the only way to reduce the number is to get the best quality rollers (this doesn't completely eliminate them but reduces the amount)
