We make decisions every day. All day long if you really think about it. Some decisions are so easy to make and some are sooooo difficult. When we were working on our house, there were soooooooo many decisions to be made. When we first started the project I was so excited to think of all the cool choices I could make.
Well, I am not a good decision maker when it comes to home additions 🤣. I wouldn’t say I was bad either. And I wouldn’t say I didn’t care, because I really do care.
Painting was a huge decision for us. Rooms to paint , plus the whole outside house color. The story behind the color of the house went like this.
We drove around looking at houses and the color people had. We found a cute house not to close and really liked the color. It’s a bluish grey. So after taking a picture to try to match the color, I sucked it up and went to the door. The man homeowner was extremely nice, the lady not so much. They couldn’t remember the name of the paint but , the man found a piece of wood ( scrap) and gave it to us to match up. The lady told me to drop off the piece of wood when we were done. Not sure why??? But whatever. The wood piece was probably as big as my hand. We had the color made and the paint store ( my mainmate only uses a certain paint) did not have that color and liked it so much also , he let us name it.
Well!!! Duh!!! We named it ” Castle Blue ” 😊. SO IF YOUR LOOKIN FOR PAINT AND YOU GO TO SHERMAN WILLIAMS , LOOK FOR CASTLE BLUE ! LOL
No we do not live in anything that is like a castle. But when Jace was little we were talking about castles and he started calling granny’s house a castle ( oh course I loved that) and the name just stuck.
So now the castle house, had been painted in ” Castle Blue” paint.
Oh !!!! The little things that put a smile on your face😊
Oh and just so you all know …….I return the scrap piece of wood back to the homeowner.
And one more painting decision that was hard, was our bedroom color. We went back and forth so many times on the color. I was over it!!!! All I wanted was the room painted and move into it. So the one day, my main mate says, get the paint I don’t care the color, they are painting tomorrow. 😳😳😳😳😳😳😳 so back to the paint store.
Easy solution I actually told the guy at the store ( who totally knew us by now) just pick a color. I was actually a wreck at the time in the store, I was in my phone with my son who was living in California at the time and he was in the hospital with pneumonia. He could have gave me any color and I would have been fine with it. He probably thought I was nuts, but he’s the specialist in color and paint. I came home with paint that day, I had no clue what color it even was , I knew it was in the taupe tone theme. The room got painted. I do laugh when people compliment us on the color and the main mate says that I picked it out. Oh , and the son with the pneumonia recovered. Duh!!! He’s living in my castle now❤❤
so today when I walked in …….. the main mate had picked up Jace and was contiuing the SHARK lego construction. IT HAS A TOTAL OF 830 PIECES, ITS CRAZY THAT YOUNG KIDS CAN WHIZ THIS STUFF TOGETHER SO QUICK.
And poor Jace is dying to play with it. It is really sweet tho.
