the bright side


The upside of the work we're having done on the house is the chance to pick new paint colors for the upstairs! Now, this makes me very excited and very nervous at once because wall color is kind of a big deal. And I have made mistakes in the past.

It seems like there is so much to do, and never enough time to do it. How does that always seem to happen? It is not more hours in the day we need, I am fairly sure. Things need to be crossed off the list, not because they're done but because they don't matter. Other things need to be bumped to the top of the list because they most definitely matter.


So, off we go. We're packing up the car today and heading to Mimi and Granddad's house for the next two to three weeks. Wish us (or better yet, wish them) luck. This is going to be quite the adventure! We sure are lucky to have them. :)
