Yes, the new year is upon us in approximately 4 hours.
I've been perusing all your blogs and you guys are amazing. I've read reflections of the past year. I've read resolutions for the year to come.
And then you came here....no reflections. No resolutions.
I could go that route. But it might be a tad big boring. The look back? Ehh. The only big news - we moved into this house .... but upon further reflection I realize - that's not true. We moved in 2008..... Hmmmm; not much else. Oh wait! I started blogging and have met you all!
Resolutions? Oh my stars - I've pretty much given up on those; because as we all know; once I start a list it goes on forever and tends to be overly ambitious (quit snickering!) ......which pretty much guarantees failure in resolutions because you can only realistically hope to accomplish one or two.
BUT I have realized why I've been so grouchy of late (I know you are cheering - thinking optimistically that this means I won't be so whiny).
I've realized that none of the projects I wanted to accomplish are making any headway - whether due to a lack of cash or lack of Hubby's assistance (though not his fault as he's been working!) and the prospect of going back to work looms (wherein I won't have the time to worry about my projects!).
I'm the kind of girl who wants it done and wants it done NOW! Yeah - patience? Not my forte.
So today I ventured out to our local Home Depot; bought some paint and proceeded to paint that wall in the closet. So now, whenever it happens - the shelves can go directly up. And in the meantime I get to enjoy the splash of color every morning.
I have always liked the look of painted stripes; so this is what I attempted. And can I tell you that this was probably the first and only of my paint projects that did not end up with me totally covered in paint? I didn't even get any in my hair! A New Year's Miracle, I tell you! It also ended up looking almost exactly like I envisioned - bonus! I'd show you pictures; but first I have to go find the camera's software - download it - transfer the pictures, etc. (ehhh, the downside to having a new computer? You can't just plug in your camera and expect it to do what it's always done!) so you'll just have to wait.
I hope you all have a safe and happy New Year's Eve. Tomorrow we begin the journey that is 2010. I'm so glad to be heading into the New Year with you all! I have high expectations (I know, I know - quit laughing - I can't help it!) for the New Year!!! It'll be great!
and hopefully some of my projects will get accomplished ......
