A Painter’s Winter

July 12, 1995

  • Hoping that October lasts until April.
  • Convinced that November’s interior workload is a true indication that the next 4 months won’t be that bad.
  • Remembering in our own minds that it’s 70° in March.
  • Completely forgetting that there really is a month of February.
  • Counting weeks down to go until April.
  • Hoping that all your good customers will remember you and have their interior painted.
  • Wishing that all top employees love their jobs so much that lost time won’t scare them into pursing other employment options.
  • Trying to remember if you really did like snow as a child.
  • Watching the bills pile up.
  • Putting off once more that great ski trip you planned all summer.
  • Daydreaming about overtime as you try to recall which rerun of “I Love Lucy” you just sat through.
  • Sharing stories with co-workers of how hot July is.
  • Going through notes thinking somewhere there’s a note from a customer that said “Call me when you’re slow.”
  • Wishing Christmas was in June.
  • Thinking that 2 busy weeks in February will follow through till May.
  • Hoping that roofers, deck builders, landscapers, and everyone else stays busy so that they don’t once again become professional painters.
  • Convinced that the groundhog know what he’s doing. (Thinking the groundhog thing is a joke.)
  • Spending too much time looking for that first robin.
  • Just shaking your head to that March blizzard forecast.
  • Looking for the crocus to bloom.
  • Never missing a live drawing.
  • Hoping your company beats out the other 10 bids for that bathroom ceiling job.
  • Wondering if April is ever going to come…
  • But, then it does, and you think back over the not-so-bad winter and November seems years away.
