before and after.

Okay, so I wanted to paint the dining room red the other day (it was only *ahem* coincidence *ahem* that Kevin happened to be away on business) but it didn't happen.  Maybe it something to do with a certain person begging, pleading, demanding, (did I already say begging?) to not touch one wall with anything remotely red.  So to make the long story short we settled on GREEN.

Dining Room Before

Just say it - nice room, but completely boring.  It only took me a mere seven years to garner within myself just barely enough interest to begin the transformation. 

Hold on . . . someone wants to say hello . . .

Alrighty then, back to the green room . . .

Isn't it purdy?

Maybe in another seven years I will have curtains on the windows.  Maybe.

one creative mind.

George came home from a Saturday art class at the Center for the Arts with this picture.
Interesting, isn't it?  Frightening maybe, but interesting.

a visitor is coming.

Her name is Tooth Fairy.
Oh, and George wants to know who surprises the Tooth Fairy when she loses a tooth?  Between that and how does she get into the house, and what if she forgets and what does she do with the tooth after she leaves, I'm starting to feel puzzled myself.

class is in session.
