We're in the process of moving the kids' rooms around. I lost my office. Ella is gaining her own room painted the color "Ballet Slipper" by Benjamin Moore.
This morning, after I convinced the fine gentleman at the paint store I didn't need primer (ample quantities of primer came with the house), I stopped by the Home Depot for an edger, some blinds, and just to browse.
Women enjoy browsing. Men shop with purpose, and the Home Depot is filled with men who are shopping with purpose. I meander lazily through the paint aisle and am nearly trampled by contractors and salesmen who assume I have a purpose for being in the paint aisle. I did have a purpose- getting an edger- but the purpose was really secondary to checking out the Martha Stewart paint colors. So pretty! Who gets to make up the names for paint colors? I want to paint my kitchen "Wooden Spoon," even though it's grey and doesn't match my kitchen at all.
John often mocks me because of my short attention span.
"And that's why I feel so passionate about this. I mean, it really comes down to- ooooh look! A butterfly!"
I feel like that in the Home Depot. There's the hanging blinds I'm looking for, gotta make sure to get cream and not white- oh look! Carpets are on sale!
I like the Home Depot, and I'm excited about Ella's new- oooh! Look! It's your Monday Happy Song!
I'm really looking forward to this album coming out in April. If you like Janis Joplin, etc. etc.:
