Saturday

Today I have the day off; and Paul's at work. I slept in until nearly 10:00 because I've been needing the sleep for a few weeks now, and have felt a cold coming on since yesterday morning. I keep hoping it's just the allergies that come with the change of season around here (so many trees and molds doing their things to my sinuses), but it's beginning to feel like more than that.

Anyway, I'm surrounded with laundry, and books. So I think I'll invest the better part of today on the book business, and laundry. Then maybe on Monday I'll feel free to start painting the kitchen.

Here's the thing. I bought all the paint for the kitchen, including a gallon of the glossiest, whitest white I could find for the cabinets and trim. And now I've changed my mind and decided to do the cabinets in black. I know it sounds horrible, but the wall colors are so bright and I think the black will make it look crisper, and less easter-eggy. So now I have to spend even more money to buy a can of black paint - and hope I like the outcome. I dread the thought of doing all that work, spendin all that money, and hating the result.

Well, enough stalling....

Never confuse proper planning for stalling! Sometimes you just need to plan in your mind until you are ready to do in the body!

Ah, Andy, I like the way you think!

And Andi, Thanks. Now that I've stated my intentions publicly, I feel more committed to my plan.
