We need to finish the clean up and primering. THEN we paint! I thought it was 2 coats of primer the manufacturer recommended. It’s two coats of paint!

- Memoir retype effort:
57.9% 61.4% 62.5% complete (I’m amused that I seem to do this in 3% chunks. I’m not counting or anything, it’s just that the sections are short, and it’s difficult emotionally, especially the first 3rd, so I’ve been doing it until I felt like quitting, then I let myself stop.)
- 3 stories into novel: Worked a little on one of the stories, call it 07% now 9/9, 9/20
