Pains of Painting

Okay, so I've bought like 7 gallons of paint to paint inside my house. Of course I didn't think about how the color tends to come out darker than the swatch says. Sooo, this is what it looks like. It turned out okay though. It's called "Old Gold 5". The other two walls I'm going to paint "Pale Gold 2" so that the whole room isn't dark. Plus I will follow that color into kitchen and hallway. Except for the one red wall I will have in kitchen. Phew, this is a big job. Lets hope I do it right. I'm glad I have a great sis who can send me suggestions. She's really good at this stuff. She lives all the way in South Africa so It's not like I can just have her over and take over for me! (I wish). I have to just try my best because decorating is hard for me. This pic is taken at night so room is kind of dark.

Good Times!

(Picture is of my little girl who just passed out on couch)
Hey guys!!! I've had a nice break from blogging and surfing the internet. I really felt like I needed a time to focus on God and not so much on the others things that were crowding in on my life. My kids and I have really tried to change our layout of the day starting with bible study in the morning before Homeschooling time. We have really loved it. Also, in the meantime, I bought an acoustic guitar and have been learning some songs and such! It has been really fun! I really wanted to be able to play guitar while my kids sang in bible study. It's been really neat seeing my boys get closer to God and asking more questions. It has been a great time! Now we are heading closer to Spring cleaning time so I am gearing up for that soon. We really need to declutter (once again). I have no idea how we get so many things. It's truly amazing. It just multiplies so quickly! LOL! So, I'll be happy once we get through with that. Right now I am looking outside and I can see that my boys have put blue tape all our great dane. It's completely wrapped around him and up his tail. You know, tape for paint prepping? Hmmm... interesting.
