Acting on decisions
Before the hurricane, I was in the process of getting quotes from painters for painting a significant portion of the interior of our home. We have a 2-story foyer that would have required one or both of us to scale a ladder or scaffolding to paint. I don't do so well with ladders . . . or heights in general. When we got back, I was excited to learn that the painter was available and could paint this week. His three-man crew was here yesterday and painted a huge portion of our house in less than four hours. They moved the furniture and returned everything back to their original locations when they were finished. My plan for the common areas of our home is to keep things neutral. Adventurous color will be confined to the smaller bedrooms and bathrooms.
Acting on this one significant thing that's been on my mind for a couple of years now has helped build some much-needed momentum. For the first few years we were here, I had this vague feeling of needing to not make plans or decisions regarding this home, but after over five years in the same house, it was just time to act. Next on the list? The front yard.
