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.
