Thanks to everyone for all the book and movie suggestions. Now I've got lots of ideas for next week's trip to the library. I'm still on the fence about which Chick Flick to go with, but I'll let you all know what the eventual winner was. (As I write this, people will be at my door in two hours, so I'd better get on it).
So, I'm going to finish off my Week of Asking Nosy Questions with another one. Ready?
What color is your favorite room in your house? Wait. I've got one more. What color is your bedroom? Do you like it? Is there some color that you think would look great, but just haven't gotten around to implementing? Fess up. I'm really curious.
There are several reasons I'm wondering. First is that I love colorful walls. (It goes along with that decorating decree - if you have nice things, go with white walls. If you don't, go with color). A lot of it comes from all those renting years when I had to have flat, renter's white walls. Ugh. Second, I really am nosy and I love houses. I like to walk around my neighborhood at night and look in windows to see what color people have their walls painted. It's a sickness without a twelve step program and I'm deeply ashamed of myself. Truly. Can you hear it in my voice?
But the main reason I ask has nothing to do with either my love of color or my peeping tom instincts. The main reason I ask has to do with something that has been basically consuming me for the last week and that has started down the road to being worked out. It's the thing that is making me think of something as optimistic as paint colors. Stay tuned for the full story next week, but for now the bottom line is this...
We're keeping the house.
