(this door is in Goldendale, Washington and has nothing to do with my maybe moldy floor.)
I was working on something else to post for tonight but then decided that it needed further work or ditching - either way I didn't want to spend more time on it now because I want to go to bed!
1) I resumed my long stalled floor-painting project and hit a snag. I brought my paint up from the basement, took the lid off, and found a disgusting moldy skin across the top. Ugh. The internet said to throw the paint away, but it was most of a gallon! So I read on until I found one brave soul who said he was going to remove the skin and paint with it anyway. "I'll do that too," I thought. Can I just say UGH UGH UGH. That skin was double plus gross, but I peeled it off and went on with my project. The problem is I think I can still smell the moldy weirdness. I don't want to give myself some sort of respiratory problem - moldy lung or brain mold or whatever. I THINK that it might go away once I get it all sealed. I'm going to try that tomorrow, and if that doesn't work then of course I will buy another gallon of paint. It's just weird that it got moldy in the first place! I've never had paint do that before.
2) I'm reading Pulphead by John Jeremiah Sullivan for book group and I'm enjoying it so much! That's not mold spores talking, either - it's good stuff.
3) it might snow but not stick tonight. I hope so. I mean, I would be happy if it snowed and stayed snowy, too, but that's apparently not in the cards.
