May 5 -- Something Old
May 12 -- Something New
May 19 -- Something Borrowed
May 26 -- Something Blue
So, in keeping with her theme, here is my "Something New":
I know, right? Are we crazy? Did we not learn our lesson the last time?
No, it appears we did not.
This time around, however, it's for our personal residence, and not the rental property. After living here for a year and half, and complaining every single solitary day (hey, at least I'm consistent!) that the green paint color on the walls, combined with the total and complete LACK of natural light in the house makes me feel like I'm living in a cave --- a dark cave, with moss-covered walls -- well, it's time to put up or shut up. Wish us luck. Our marriage has survived the military, infertility, and cancer. I don't know, however, if we'll survive another painting project.
Ironically, when the PTO moms were here last week for the dessert party, one of them complimented the "nice, green color" in our living room.
"Thanks," I said, "I like it too, but its just too dark. We're getting ready to paint it yellow."
"Really?" she asked, "My living room is yellow, and I'm fixing to paint it green."
I laughed and said maybe we should just trade houses instead. It would probably be less work than painting.
No, really. I'm serious.
