We = Scott (in most cases)
I love how there is this section on the website that says "keep tabs on us through my weekly blog." It's funny how I continue to set unrealistic goals for myself.
Three months. I would love to tell you everything that has happened.
Unfortunately, I don't remember the first two months because my day job spun me into a downward spiral that started with self-loathing and betrayal and ended with a dead-behind-the-eyes expression to cover up my intricate day-dream scenarios of single-handedly bringing down the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board. It involved both a strongly-worded letter and a substantial amount of fire ants.
Hopefully, our facebook posts have been enough to keep you engaged.
I can tell you this...Scott has been working his ass off. And for those of you that know him, I mean, more than usual. He's been supplementing his morning swim-bike-run routine with evenings of painting and demolishing and painting and wall boarding and painting and electrical and painting. (Sometimes he throws in heated debates with our neighbor about property lines and easements.)
That's a lot of painting, you think. We must be done by now, you assume.
Painting started when Scott slapped some color on one of the exposed steel support beams just to see how it looked. But this led to also throwing it on the trim at the top of the wall. So that's how we came to painting trim before painting the walls. Also, because we like to make things just a smidgen more difficult on ourselves.
Now let's take into account that the trim and beams are about 12 inches wide and cover a 2,000 square foot area. And then let's consider that a person is not, in fact, 15 feet tall and therefore has to move a very large ladder once every...oh, say...3 feet that can be reached by stretching one's arm out.
No, we are not done painting.
Additionally, we are trying to be involved in different Lorain initiatives. What's good for Lorain is good for us, of course. So Scott is currently on the Light Up Lorain committee that organizes the Christmas activities. And he's keeping up-to-date on the Lorain Growth Initiative to support the Entertainment District. If you haven't already, mark your calendars for Saturday, August 15th for the Brewfest Waterfront District from 12-6. A $25 ticket will get you 15 four oz. samplers plus a souvenir glass. You can find them on facebook. Revival's doors will definitely be open (we might even let you use our bathroom.)
We're hoping to have a limited Open House in mid-May, so be sure to like our page on facebook, because god knows when I will manage another update here. AND, we will be back at The Summer Market in Avon Lake this July. Great event, great cause!
Let us know if you want any more pictures or details.
