Redecorating.....

I'm currently in the midst of doing some redecorating and like most things I do it has some how grown out of control. It started with a little vinyl siding and it has grown to adding 3 additional rooms. You see I have this problem with making decisions... too many choices and I fall apart. So, you can now see I am in going to have a problem. Let me discuss my first issue, paint. I have a bedroom, a family room and a bathroom. Not a big deal you say! Well, see I am ADD (non medicated) and I can't stay focused on the task at hand. I have some how managed to add to the paint list, daughters room, main bathroom, office and bedroom. TOO MANY ROOMS! It's not the task of painting, I like that. I like to see my accomplishments and it is a non thinking task so it is pretty relaxing.

WAIT, I got off topic. Back to paint. I thought if I did that cute thing they do on TV and put all my paint chips on a piece of paper (my color pallet) it would help. Well, I was quite proud of myself and was only having problems with the primary walls in the family room. So, what do I do? I go to my dear friend Valarie who just happened to be with our dear friend Lorie. Now, this sounds good on the surface but keep in mind my friend Valarie who always has it together had the biggest fall-apart I have ever known her to have over paint for her own home. But, a trip to Lorie's for some sort of food party (we love those) and it was better. So it was only fitting that Lorie was once again there for "Paint Selection".

Boy, I almost left my topic again. Anyway, suggestions have been submitted by my girls and bad choices I made corrected. So now I am back on track again.

Normal people don't loose sleep over paint choices. But I suffer from the "Fear of Color". I love color I am just afraid of it. My philosophy is black and white always works!

FYI...I attempted the color thing on these great antique metal chairs, didn't work so well....That will be a topic for another day. I may even provide pictures. Put in your mind Kawasaki Green!

When we were building last year... I had a melt down right before I drifted off to sleep.... omgosh, I sat up and kept saying oh no, oh no, I've just thought about this I don't think the wall's are going to match the tile, so I ran over to the other house in my flip flops and a flash light to bring a piece of tile back home with me, I sat off the silent alarm at the new house, (the alarm my husband rigged up with battries), he thought someone was breaking in, so he comes over with a gun I'm in a night gown and he's holding a gun.... geez....

I did the ADD thing at Hobby Lobby a minute ago, and I have had my medication.

I had several projects in my head and did not go in with a list. So I have several parts of projects to start on, but not everything to finish them. :)
