Day 9: Productive Day

I love productive days. Makes me feel a sense of accomplishment. It's like me telling myself "It's ok you don't have a job. You can still make good use of your time even though you're not earning money for it."

I made a ton of phone calls which included a phone interview for a position I applied for several weeks ago that I honestly do not want (Customer Service position).

I also got to venture inside Manitowoc County Jail. For my "Big" background check, Utah requires fingerprinting, and they do that for free at the jail. It smelled weird and the lights were funky and made me dizzy. The non-police people were like something out of a Hollywood movie. Creepy. Saw an inmate in the orange jumpsuit. Just an odd event of the day.

Tonight I decided that it's a great time to paint. Our house is spectacular and has some fabulous paint colors except in two rooms. The bathroom has the 90s sponge paint in odd hues of blue and my scrapbooking/workout room is bright-arse green. With my phone interview today it got me thinking that I really cannot afford to procrastinate on some projects I decided I wanted to do when I became unemployed. Painting is one of those projects.

I stopped by Lowe's before they closed and found a wonderfully knowledgeable lady in painting to help me. I got some pint-sized paint samples and I put a coat on. I'll put another coat on tomorrow and I want to see in daylight to see if I like them still.

Accent wall: red(ish). Greyish brown on other walls.

Purple in the bathroom. A dark color to contrast with an overload of white.


  1. I can't wait to see how your painting turns out!

  2. Thanks for reading :) I'm really excited and I think it's going to turn out awesome!

  3. Dark red or the black look the best imo!


Thanks, mango! You're a fabulous person and there needs to be more people like you that comment on awesome posts.
