So where have I been while I've been neglecting my blog, you may ask? I would say I've been obsessing. I'm prone to obsession. In fact I would say this tendency of mine to "over-think" things prevents me from executing even a tenth of my ideas.
I decided a month ago I wanted to paint my house, and since then I've been living and breathing paint swatches and testers. 2 weeks ago the kitchen was painted blue. I immediately loved it. It matched perfectly with the cabinets and the stainless steel appliances. I then decided I wanted a yellow for the main areas of the house. Everyone says yellow is tricky. And it is. And it's bright. And now it's on my walls all over the house. And so now I'm obsessing some more, but now is not the time to obsess for hundreds of dollars have already been spent on paint and labor. So today my task is to stop obsessing and be grateful for walls to paint and pictures to hang. And I think I'll just take some deep breaths.
I'll post pictures when the project is complete so you can say your sympathetic and soothing words.
