This title line was from a Heather Locklear hair color commercial in the 80s and 90s, I think. My house is talking to you. My house is looking more and more beautiful, (and right, it should, after this intense make-over.)
It’s disturbing how, after you start to fix one thing, you start to notice how there are 5,000 other things that need to be fixed. (Here’s how the thought process goes, “Oh, I need to order blinds for the sliding glass door and the new window in the studio.” “Ooooh, I hate the blinds in the rest of the house, maybe we should get those replaced too.” “I mean, we can’t live with substandard blinds in the living room.” Insert the Wayan brothers’ voices from White Chicks, “Omg, if I have to look at that dreadful broken screen on the door one more time, I think I might have a BF!”)
So, back to my house, the crew is painting now, and I’m not sure I love, love, love the color of the house, but if I think of it as a shout out to the 1950’s, this new paint job fits the house. It’s like the house was sayin’, “Take me back! I want to be what I was at my origin, paired with a sock hop, poodle skirt, and Rock Around the Clock playin’ in the background.” My house is happy.
Week 6, at the beginning:
Week 6: Later in the week
It’s not all done yet, but we’re getting much closer. One of the main lessons I’ve learned is, when you don’t think things are ever going to work out, they do. They may not work out as you expect, but they’ll work out, and you adapt.
I’m thinkin’ this house might be a metaphor for life.
Life is beautiful.
Until next Friday. Love you loves.
Gastric Bypass Update:
I ate totally crappy this week & didn’t exercise as much. It may have been that trip to Vegas that threw me off kilter a bit. All that to say, taking a few days off to Vegilax was a good thing. Now, back on the exercise bandwagon again via walking laps at Raging Waters today!
