Late last year, when Eric told me we needed to start saving money to get the house painted, I said, "It looks fine. It doesn't need a new paint job." Then he explained to me that it needed repairing and painting because of dry rot, etc., and not for cosmetic reasons. Ever since then, I’ve surveyed houses while walking or driving around town, looking for the perfect color combinations.
Two weeks ago, it was finally time to pick out the paint. I was so excited! We all went to the paint store and it only took me ten minutes to decide the exact colors; Highlighter Yellow for the house, Charmed Green for the trim and Scarlet Past for the door (I’ve always wanted a red door!) I wonder who gets the fun job of naming all of the colors?
* Oh my! –said a friend. (That’s all she said!)
* It’s a good paint job. –said our neighbor across the street. (Code for: I don’t like the color but I don’t want to tell you that.)
