Which I would not have said.
We were looking at the walls and thinking about whether we really did need to paint the entire house. The colours are almost what we would have actually picked! It's almost just right!
The thing is that we absolutely know if we don't paint now, it will never get done. We will move in and live with the not-quite-right paint colours for the next twenty years. And it will bother me. Every. Single. Day.
So we've decided that we really do need to paint the entire house. Which didn't really seem like onerous a job at the time we decided it because, after all, we're not moving until June.
Of course, now that we're into May, it seems like a big job. Huge, even. Time to buckle down. So we started in the girls' rooms, because there was no way that they were staying the colours they were, even if we squinted and tilted our heads.
We even let them pick their own colours. Kee went straight for pink. Not just any pink either; hot pepto bismol pink. She wanted everything pink. Maybe two different colours of pink? Really dark bright pink, and slightly lighter bright pink? Thankfully, she decided to be reasonable and ended up with a lovely light pink called "Hawaiian Shell."
I had assumed that Beege would pick purple. But she fooled us all, and picked something called "Blue Poppy" when she was out with my mother. She carried the paint chip around with her, and told everyone that that would be her room colour. Of course, then we lost the chip. To make things simpler, I offered her a selection from the ones that I'd gotten in the first place, and she decided on "Lilac Bisque" which is, after all that, a very pretty purple.
Anyway. We got both of them done this weekend!
Now we just have to decide on the rest of the house.
