Today, I get to begin painting Sean's room, and making it into a guest room. This process isn't easy, since it involves accepting the fact that my darling baby is truly an adult. After all, he's almost 25. I get to do this job because he has become such an independent and wonderful adult. I get to do this job because I'm still strong enough to climb a ladder and to scrub walls. I get to do this because I have a solid job that allows me to buy materials, and to not have to work seven days a week. And I get to do this because Brian is my partner, ready to dive into this project, and possessing the skills of drywalling.
