Ugh. Lameness from me. I am all “let me just finish this thing – and THEN I will blog”. But then I never do. I do have some tales to tell, so hopefully they will be written down soon.
I am currently obsessed with doing stuff around the house. When we moved in to our house (2000 – pre-blog, but barely) I repainted every room in the first 3 weeks and did all sorts of stuff right then. And then it has been mostly pretty much the same since. Ursula has arrived and had several room updates (2003, 2006, 2011), a dog has ruining a sofa so it’s been replaced (Lola, 2004), Dan’s office has a surprise makeover (2009). But the main bones – pretty much the same. In the last year we finally got rid of the train table in our living room and (welcome to the 21st century) gotten a wall-mounted TV.
Anyway – this is all stemming from my desire to redo our bedroom. But I am paralyzed with indecision. I liked this one duvet for SO long that Anthropologie stopped selling it and I had to get it on eBay. My hesitation? It was a cocoa color and I really wanted gray but I LOVED the set. So I bought it, only to discover like 3 days ago that it was JUST released in gray. I think I am happier with the cocoa – but I still haven’t painted or done anything else.
I guess what’s good is that because I keep delaying the bedroom decision but I have the energy I want to use on SOMETHING. So, I repainted the living room like a month and a half ago and am painting our bathroom and hall this weekend. It is exciting in the end, but ugh – it’s boring and hard work and sapping all of my energy.
And pretty soon, I will run out of rooms to paint and will HAVE TO deal with the bedroom. I hope.
