Nancy, it's good, as Marcia said, that you now have a firm date that's not too far off. You'll have enough time to make any post-surgery recuperation plans that may be needed, and then it'll all be over in a flash and you'll be on the road to a blissful vest-free recovery.
Marcia, if it's that bothersome, maybe you should remove the melamine and any pressboard below and start over with either sheetrock or cedar lining. Could you post a photo? It sounds like a good bf project.
Becca, fun drawings! Nancy's right: they have great movement, especially the last one.
Since HRH Pearl woke me up so early, all of yesterday was pretty much a waste - I was either too tired to be productive or napping to try to catch up on sleep - and now I have to try to cram all of yesterday's tasks in with what I had planned for today.
Maybe I should just give up on ever painting again!
