Independence Day & enough with the paintng. ENOUGH

Swaziland Independence Day

Decided after another round of touch up in the bedroom that I am giving up on the paint being even, and now I have discovered that it rubs off realitively easy. I guess that is what I get for buying the cheapest paint out there. The room that went great I bought the more expensive paint and had the color I wanted mixed together. The touch ups blended in perfect and it doesn't rub off. I have never heard of a hosue paint that rubs off. UNBELIEVEABLE. Maybe some day I will return to fixing it, but enough is enough. Plus, I still have the bathroom to do & the kitchen could also use a paint job.

But I got two years, got save something to do in the down time.

And decided that I really didn't want to sleep in the room, so I left my bed and only the bed in guest room and moved everything else into the "bedroom". When guest arrive, I figure out something different to do

Coached an afternoon game, lost 4 to1 but we won the shot battle easily probably realistically 35 to10, the defense had a bunch of mid fielders playing since most of the regular defensive players didn't show up. Also, I changed the formation to a more offensive style and it showed, I think the team once firing with all their cleats on will be very good, just have to get them in shape in lots of ways, but the talent is there.
