I'm sick of brown in decorating. Seriously. It's one of those 'fads' that will age a room after a few years. Don't get me wrong, dark woods are not counted in this. It's that chocolate brown and pale blue look that's killing me. Now I've seen it with pink and green and UGH!. Enough already.
I've decided to buck the trend and make grey the next big thing. Unlike brown, grey comes in a million shades depending on the base colour so I know I can work with it better. Right now, I'm trying to stay away from anything with a blue tint to it and I seem to be over green too. I'm still a purple chick but I don't mean Crayola purple but steel grey purple. Yum.
Yep. It's that time. I have to start picking paint colours for the main floor. And I'm soooo not doing anything 70's inspired like the 'trends' that are happening now.
It was pool cleaning day because it was gorgeous out and Bob and I got into a wonderfully warm pool. Still it took me lots of time to skim the pool, back wash the filter and try to vacuum. (Vacuuming is a pain because we keep losing suction and it involves running back and forth - it's best done with two people so one can hold the stupid plate down in the filter return beside the pool while the other is 100 ft away trying to re-prime the pump. I don't deal with frustration well)
Tomorrow is in the planning stages. I've been looking at Cody and thinking about how I need to put him in our upstairs tub and give him a bath. Note I'm still thinking about it. Which seems to be the theme of the last few days. Thinking and not doing.
Gah!! My eyes!! I'm watching a design show and the walls are painted brown and supposedly lime green only it looks like brown and avocado green. Hello 1970. Ugh.
AND, my napping and sleeping mojo have left me. I only slept for 7 hours last night. WTF? I was up at 1:30pm today which is not like me when I got to bed at 6 am. Then I tried to have a nap but I seem to remain in this semi-conscious state that makes me feel nauseous. Yuck.
It's 3am now and I am tired but I'm afraid to try sleeping in case I once again just lie there waiting. And yes, I've taken the sleep meds after reducing them over time.
I'm also horribly bored. I haven't had this since the last snow fall. Not good.
Okay, off to kill some time.
Yes, I'm avoiding the 'S' word. Hoping if I don't type it, it won't be true.
Geez, on another subject the Canadian dollar is almost equal to the US dollar. Now, I pay 11 bucks a book while the US price is much lower. Shouldn't I now get to pay the lower price on my books?
Yep, I make economists cringe in horror at my ignorance.
