Decisions, decisions...

For the past 3 weeks Tony has been getting our living room and dining room ready for painting. One of those projects we just didn't get finished before Maiya was born. Packing up our two little rooms, washing down walls with deglosser, scraping, sanding, pulling off baseboards, puttying and spackling the ceiing and walls. That's all the physical work. I have been working hard trying to keep Maiya entertained, safe and out of the way and out of the house while living with plastic and dropcloths, eating in the backyard and hanging out at Uncle Bill's. And of course this all happens during my busiest time of the year at work (until Thursday) so Tony is also juggling swim class and childcare with me. One of the things that hung us up 3 years ago was deciding on the paint colors. But, this weekend we finally selected 3 colors from the ones in the photo above: Oat straw, Firenze and Glacial till. Tony did the ceilings yesterday and the living room today. You'll just have to wait and see how it turns out!
