In order to survive this move-back-in, I've decided that I need to alternate between "muscle" days and "brain" days. Today was definitely a muscle day. I hauled all the file boxes back into my office and tossed or shredded a bunch of unneeded junk. Tomorrow? BRAAAAAINS.

And I managed to put an ugly black scuff on the paint in my office. I'm trying to be philosophical about this: it's sort of inevitable, as we move stuff around, and once we're finished getting everything in place, we have paint in every color to make touch-up repairs.

So I didn't even cry. Well, not really....

I'd test it on a board or something first, but the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser is reeeeeeeeeeally good at removing scuffs.

I find it helps if I think of it this way: Painting your house is not like painting the Mona Lisa, where you get it just so and then you're done for all eternity. Rather, it's like painting a bridge, where the moment you finish it's time to start back at the other end. Anyway, it makes me feel better about the inevitable need for touch-ups.

That is a good way of looking at it. If a little depressing. ;-)

Now *that's* a premise for a new zombie movie for our times! "Home improvement leads to a new outbreak of zombies in Ohio! Who will survive this onslaught?!"
