nesting a new year...

i always do this...
i get the itch and i start to remodel and paint and hang pictures.
i think it's the new year, new birth thing.

i re-painted my ALIEN green bathroom to a mild green and i painted my halway grey-blue.
i like it.
and, i really did it almost all by myself.
the professor didn't WANT to help because he didn't want to paint the bathroom alien green in the first place...  who needs him anyway.
and, so i put the kids to bed, put on a book on CD and had a very delightful evening cutting in with my new $3.99 paintbrush that i love.

i don't have any pictures yet, but i'll get them.
and, i ORDERED my canvas and prints... i'm SO EXCITED to show you pictures when it's all hung.

today, i like change.

ps-- speaking of change... i'm kinda liking the gym.  i told my ankle problems to my friend (Steve Pincock, the Tech Trainer, yeah, i'm kinda famous) and he said it was a TENDON and it hurt because i wasn't warming up well.  So now, I cut my toenails short, i stretch better, and i walk 5 minutes before i run and TAH DAH-- no pain.  Well, minor lazy-butte pain, just not real hurting pain.

grateful for change.

Sorry....left a comment on the pics posting before I read that my opinion certainly need not be thrown in the ring....as you've already decided....can't wait to see how they turned out, as well as the painting of the rooms!
