I’ve been feeling kind of blah this year. I’ve tried not to complain here too much for a couple of reasons. First, I strive to not complain in general (though fail miserably) and second, who wants to read a bunch of whiny “I’m depressed” posts. This school year has been tough. We aren’t accomplishing everything that I want to or think that we need to. I don’t really have a plan for fixing that exactly. But I do have a plan to cheer myself up.

Next week we’re taking 2 days off of school so I can paint my living room!

Maybe this sounds ridiculous, but I haven’t been this excited about anything for quite a while. I bought the paint at the end of the summer but ran out of time before starting school. I had resigned myself to waiting for spring, but thanks to Heidi, I realized that I could do it now, before Thanksgiving. She’s a whole lot busier than I am and she’s painting. So I decided to go for it.

I’m looking forward to a freshly painted living room to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas. Plus the extra school break will do me good.

  1. That IS something to be excited about! Woohoo! I cannot wait to see before and after photos.

  2. Yay! Good for you! You'll be so happy to have that done. Make sure you post pictures!

    We just finished up some painting and other miscellaneous projects that have been lingering for YEARS. It makes me so happy to have it done – I could never really relax in that room (where we spend 90% of our time), because all those things were staring me in the face, mocking me.

    And besides, taking two days off whenever the whim strikes is what homeschooling is all about!

  3. Good for you! Sometimes that's just the kind of boost a mom needs, and if nothing else, at least you won't be sitting in your living room thinking about how you wished you'd gotten it done earlier. Have fun!


  4. I know all about those much-needed breaks! (although painting might not be how I would choose to spend mine) Nevertheless, it will definitely be nice to have that freshly-painted look in time for the holidays, I bet!

  5. I just posted about all the painting we are doing. LOL! I am glad you are taking the time to get you living room painted. You will feel much better.



  6. I'm glad I was able to inspire someone. I should blog about our painting projects – but I can't seem to find the time!
