This Is Why I Should Never Be Left Unattended

~What I didn't do on my summer vacation...Part II~

Picked up a new book the other day thinking I'd get me some basic "how-to" pointers on color choices.  If y'all have ever had to deal with picking out paint colors, you know how the right shade of gray can be an ordeal.

Am I right...or am I right?

But now I'm wondering if I can get my money back.

See y'all...it's like this.

I've read and reread this thing three times and I've yet to see any paint swatches. Believe me...I've looked...and looked again!

Not.one.single.color.wheel!

Hmmph!

I'm beginning to think 50 Shades Of Grey has nothing at all to do with decorating whatsoever.

On the other hand...

I've never been this clean before and there's nary a hint of Junker's tan due to several...

I repeat...

SEVERAL...

unscheduled cold showers.

I love coming here...you either make me laugh out loud, HUGE belly laughs...or I'm wiping a tear...
Which is definitely the case with your last post.
Wow, Deb...I could barely see the screen of my computer as the tears were rolling down my cheeks. It was written as only YOU could write such a touching, beautiful piece. You are just amazing.
I bet your dad was smiling down at you as proud as ever... :)
I keep hoping I'll come by and see an "announcement" that you have decided to use this brilliant gift you have for writing and share it with the world on a more professional level...
Until then, I'll be stopping by with my fingers crossed, hoping...hoping.... :)
Have a wonderful week, my friend. xo
