Merik's art project

Don't you love the decor of our room? Did you notice the stripes on the wall that took forever?? Oh wait, that's not what you're noticing? You're wondering about the lovely towels on the floor? Oh, you don't think they quite match? Hmm, I'll take that into consideration.

Oh wait there's a reason they're there! Yep, you guessed it, that big white spot...PAINT!!!! Are you kidding me?

Merik was playing, stepped on the paint can and it tipped over and popped the lid off. I immediately started hyperventilating, appropriately so, and Pat-thank heavens-just walked over and started scooping it up with a dust pan. Merik was so sweet and came over and started rubbing my back saying "paint make mommy sad" "its okay mommy, be fine". Well I was determined to clean it but in pat's wisdom he convinced me it was hopeless!

I guess its officially home!

Wow...nice work Merik...I love that he was trying to comfort you. Oh and by the way, it's not fair that you are already painting and decorating...I've lived in my house for 1 1/2 years and have one bathroom painted and some pictures on the wall...of course I shouldn't be surprised, history has taught me otherwise ( ONE apartment in Cali and your TWO apartments in Cali...mine boring white...yours fabulously colorful) :) Love you, miss you!

Lol--I didn't even notice the paint! I thought the place looks great. We have been here over two years and we haven't even painted yet. I guess we have a little more on our minds right now--like trying to stay warm and dry. We'll get there soon enough. Congrats on your new house. It looks fantastic.

I think white makes a nice accent!
