Didn't get to do any painting today and will try to get it done over the weekend, I mean, it is Labor weekend isn't it? Doesn't that mean you have to labor?? We aren't going anywhere except for yard sale-ing so might as well get some stuff done around the house. I see a lot of listings in the local paper for yard sales starting Friday and lasting all the way til Monday! Whoo hoo! Hopefully, we find some good stuff and don't run out of money just when we find the most perfect thing. That's always in the back of my mind when I go yard sale-ing, not wanting to spend too much for something and having no cash at the next sale for something better than what I just bought. There have been moments when I had to drag myself away from something because I didn't have enough money and the sellers didn't want to take any less or hold it for me. Oh, well.. there's always the next sale! Have a GREAT weekend everybody!

Friends Don't Let Friends Wear Neon...
I saw that on a t-shirt once when neon colored clothing was all the rage, and frankly, getting out of hand. We ran our errands today and picked out a paint color for the school room. Why is it that when you pick it out on the color sample strip, it looks great! But then in the actual paint can, it looks frightening?? We picked out 4 colors, or rather, I picked out 4 colors and then debated with Hubby which color we should pick. He chose the pale yellow one and I kind of lobbied for the pale green one. I pictured in my head the stuff on the walls, the old cabinet I am going to use and thought they would look nicer with the green in the background. So he let me get the green. After the paint lady mixed the colors and opened the can, I kind of groaned internally and thought I shouldn't have picked the green. Hubby said it looked "kind of neon". *gulp* I am telling myself that it will dry lighter and will look great once we get it on the walls, but I am really kind of, sort of, just a little teensy-weensy bit, panicking and stressing over the color. Will paint one wall and see how it dries and I hope it won't be so bright that the girls will be distracted and everything I am teaching them bounces off the brain and slides to the floor in a puddle. Would you have picked this color? What color would you pick for your own school room?
