Shark-like Behaviour

I do not like prep.

I do not enjoy cutting fabric out.

I know I should, but I almost never put all of my ingredients out in little bowls, measured and perfect, before starting to cook.

I do not like the spackling and sanding part of painting.

I do not like waiting in traffic. I like moving forward.

I like to move forward: start and go. Usually, I do not start, because I know I need to do prep and I don’t like it. Quiltmaking is the exception.

My DH is good at preparation part of painting. Meticulous, in fact, which is good since he is preparing the walls for paint. And he is making good progress. Yesterday he put primer on the walls. The primer is white so I can start to see what my work room will look like. It looks so much more fresh and white. I am pretty excited to get rid of that life sucking beige.

  1. We had to paint our WHOLE house taupe, inside and out, before putting it up for sale in the recession market in San Jose. Oh it hurt to lose the lavenders, blues, sherbet oranges, etc. It lost all the ‘life’ it had. I prefer white to taupe. Taupe should be a four letter word as well as Beige, which is just a fancy way to say taupe.
    I wish we could do this in our house now. We still have a hallway and living room/studio in dirty gray white and family room and KITCHEN in taupe. ick ick ick

    You will enjoy your new space SO much! I am happy for you
