The goldfish tells the tale..

Sometimes when the waters get too murky, you want to jump, and hope someone will find you, and pick you back up from the floor and put you back in your tank.

So, that is why I chose this template. Because everytime I post a blog, with some kind of problem, I can count on you to toss me back in the tank.

So, I hope you like this, and I'm going to try to pick up the pace around here. Once I get the Catholic painter out of here. I hope he isn't giving painting up for Lent, because we got another weeks work here.

Gord and I are having second thoughts about the paint colour we chose..Arizona Tan. The whole house seems to "glow".....it's wierd. It looks different in every room, depending on the light. It's not bright, but it has a reddish tone to it that we aren't used to. I can't wait until it's finished and I can put all my stuff back to see if anything will match the new colour. It's a very peaceful colour, almost serene. But I think I should have broke up the colour a bit more in different areas. Hindsight...shit...

I can't find anything around here, today we lost all our bills. I finally found them under a pile of papers and some were due!! I have never lived in such a mess. I thought it was an organized mess, but I was wrong. I will never do this again. I just can't imagine people doing renovations in their homes. I can't even find my damn dog!!

Peace.

I feel your pain. I remember when painting a room wasn't such a big ordeal. Now it's chaos. I can't cope with change very well. That's why this "computer room" and former bedroom is still raspberry pink!

I think I'll just wash my walls, I'm not sure I could handle having to move everything.

I like your new blog format and love the pictures of your doggie. I hope you have managed to find her in the crazy mess of things. Just remember it's not forever!

I'm starting to have second thoughts about doing some painting. :)

I hate living in a house that is under renovation or re-painting or "re" anything. I used to paint the walls in my living room and dining room every couple of years--no big deal. Now it is one massive chore--my back hurts, my legs hurt, my head hurts. I can only bear to do one wall a day--I hate getting old!!!

On another more encouraging note--it will all be over--soon and the new buyers will like that every room is the same color. Of course, they will probably paint some other color over it and there goes all that work you had done, but...such is life.
