A veritable rainbow.

When we first moved into our house back in 2004 the first room we painted as the master bedroom. Wanting a space that would promote good sleeping and tranquility I convinced Kev that the darkest of dark blues would be a good choice. And it was....for about 4 years. This past weekend Kev finally decided he'd had enough of the blue and that it was time for a change. to Home Depot we went - like thousands of other homeowners on a long weekend - gathered paint samples and bought all the requisite supplies to tackle the job of covering up dark, dark blue.

3 coats of primer and 2 coats of paint later we have a brand new room. All I can say is WOW. What a difference a color change makes.

Here is the before (we were still finishing the floors!) and the after.

So we went from the deep abyss to an enchanting land (that's actually the name of the new color). The green is actually much lighter than in the photo but you get the overall idea.

OK. No more painting...for, like, the next 10 years!

Long time no see.... you know what they say about the best intentions. My intention was to blog daily if at all possible. I think you've probably realized (if you're at all visiting this thing somewhat regularly) that I am definitely NOT blogging daily :)

So...what's new you say? Well, that dreaded Stats course is drawing to a close (thank goodness!) and my final exam is due on Monday. I'll be glad to be done with this math madness. There's a perfectly good reason why I could never be an engineer or scientist or anything that involved using complicated math on a daily basis. That's because my brain just doesn't process numbers. This is something I've come to realize in taking this course. I sucked at Stats in highschool and that is something that hasn't changed in 15 years!

Otherwise, work is going well. There are the usual ups and downs. I think I'll stay off this particular topic as it's a bit of a sore spot right now. Besides that life is good....I have my health, am gainfully employed, (mostly) enjoy my work, my husband is wonderful, the weather is beautiful and there's nothing that I could possibly complain about. Nope. Nothing at all :)

Life is (still) good.
