Greetings, Sprouting Sunflowers!
You may recall that in an earlier post from Budapest, I listed four resolutions to complete upon returning home. One of those was to add some bright orange or yellow to our already overly-painted house. So, yesterday I wasted no time in racing back and forth to the hardware store three times, dropping more cash than K needs to know on paint samples and supplies, and getting to work.
I could have paid extra for the toxin-free paint, which is something responsible Mommies and Knocked Up women might do. But since I am neither, I said screw it and went for the good old fashioned, braincell-killing cheap stuff. This whole messy, expensive endeavor was my idea, not Kevin's, so he stayed out of it.
Before: Green and dark, like a forest filled with depressed trolls.
After: Happy yellow, like a sun-drenched meadow filled with butterflies on Ecstacy!
After I hung up our paintings from Ecuador, I felt so giddy, I momentarily forgot about dead babies!
