cross your fingers...

...that I just put the last coat of spackle on all the bad spots in the entryway. I've been trying to be patient, but I've lost track of the number of coats (with appropriate sanding in between) that I've put on. I just want to prime the darn thing already! Especially since I know I will have to put at least three (if not more) coats of paint on it after. Of course, I don't want it to look completely like ass when I'm done, or for the cracks and holes that I've patched to re-crack or look like obvious patches.

On a brighter note, we have completed the ceiling in the hallway, have the new (bright!) light fixtures installed, have put on new light switch and outlet plates, and got a new (non rusty/bent) cover for the air return. I just have to find the correct screws in my tool box to put that on. Then it's all G getting the new flooring in (which I will probably help 'cause I wanna use the new saw...but not too much since I am the spackler/sander/painter of the house).

All I have to say is that when we're done, this better look like the picture I have in my head. Otherwise, someone's heads will roll.
