I think I have a disease. . .

I have a problem. It all starts in my head and then it is all over. So here is the problem. . .I get an idea. . .no just any idea but a really good one and then I can't stop thinking and obsessing over it until I carry it out. You see i got this really good decorating idea. It all started with the discovery of the toddler beds we are going to make and the material we found when my parents were here in June. I just couldn't stop thinking about the material and the room we are going to move the kids too after Christmas. Well I got a paint idea. . .I then made the drive to Lowes and picked a color. Then the next problem was that I really didn't know what the color would look like until we got it on the wall. . .so I new it was crazy and I shouldn't start any big projects. Mike was suppose to be the voice of reason but when I asked him if we could go ahead and paint the office downstairs he said yes. I said "WHAT?" You were suppose to talk me out of it, but he didn't. Anyways, he almost has all the edges and one coat of paint on it. It will definitely need another coat but I think I'm really going to like it. I'm a little scared to reveal the color. . .its not exactly normal for a kids room but I think we might just be able to pull it off. The color; brown. Deep dark chocolate brown. Graces bedding will be in pinks (brighter pinks. . .surprise surprise) and Obies is going to be green. . .like a real true green. I'll post a picture when the walls are done. It will remain the office until after Christmas. The only thing is we are probably going to be crazy busy around that time with 3 kids and Mike taking his two last, not to mention hardest classes on his masters degree. Perfect time for some painting huh? No class for Mike until the end of September and he won't be done with classes until March. So what else is he going to do for the next 1 1/2 months. Yea, he's great and now my mind can rest a minute.
