The Joys of Remodeling

The big news around here is that we did have the electrical work done and now we have outlets and a switch for the bathroom light in the bathroom! I keep showing this switch and the outlets in the living room to people but oddly enough no one seems as impressed as we are. The electrical work was done by Geno's Electrical in Oneonta and they were great, very conscientious and so nice, and I would highly recommend them if you need anything in that area.

We painted the walls in the bedroom last weekend. Of course the paint we so carefully picked out was wrong, wrong, wrong. I cried. It was supposed to be khaki but it was more like dark white. Luckily I had some other paint that I mixed with it and it turned out just right and as soon as I put another coat on the woodwork we can start moving stuff back in, probably tonight. I can't believe it might finally be done. I can't believe it took so long to do one room.

I've been feeling a little blue lately so I haven't been writing much. I think Winter has just gone on a little too long. Anyway, I haven't posted in a month so here's a picture to illustrate the posts I was gonna do but didn't. The daffodils bloomed and Spring is here. Yea! We got snow. Yea!

Oh, I am so bad at picking out paint colors. I'm glad you were able to make yours work.

You're way ahead of us on the electricity front! We don't yet have power in the bathroom. When we moved in, we found a really strange lamp with a base made out of a Sprite can. We covered the bulb with an old glass lantern we found lying around, plugged it into an outlet in the next room (using our friend the extension cord), and ran the cord over the top of the closed door between the two rooms. Now it hangs upside down from the top of the bathroom side of the door. I'm pretty sure we're violating every kind of safety regulation there is.

I've never gotten a paint color right the first time. Which is why I had paint in a different color to mix with it.

Your bathroom light story is hilarious but this is Blount County, I don't think we have any safety regulations.

Picking paint is not easy for me, either. Someday I'll have to post about my foray into red on the walls.

I like how your hubby goes for the, "If I don't see you, you can't see me" approach. Yet his hands are big enough that it works for him.
