It does not get better than this past weekend. Beautiful weather. Dinners with friends. New haircut, color and manicure. Fun at the park. My continued war on the brown walls upstairs. That last part may not sound like fun to other people, but with each stroke of the paintbrush I felt victorious. I felt like yelling, ” BE GONE, PUTRID FLESH COLORED 1991 BROWN PAINT!”
All joking aside, the entire 2nd floor of our house looks nothing like the ground floor. Shaggy carpet, banged up trim, dingy doors, cloudy windows, mildewed bathrooms. The upstairs is a bit “fixer” in style. I’ve also been informed that the heat and air units are basically shot. This big house is, in a word, overwhelming.
I’m also planning Jane’s “big girl room” and it’s so fun. I’m excited for her to move out of her small nursery and into a big room with lots of space to play and run. White walls, lace curtains, twinkle lights, vintage bed frame… truthfully I’ll probably be a little jealous once it’s all said and done.
So that’s us. We’re just painting and park playing and thoroughly enjoying this A+ September.
I can’t imagine a happier beginning to the fall season.
