This is a whiny and venting post so if you have a few minutes to spare with absolutely nothing else to do this is the place for you.
In a 24 hour period I am picking out new flooring and new paint for our family room/kitchen room combo. I was told at Lowe's yesterday that would be called a great room. Hmmmm???? Since both the kitchen and family area are a total of about 210 square feet I am not sure that the greatness would correspond to size. But I think it is a great room because its where my family lives. 90 % of our lives are spent in these two rooms so it will forevermore be called the Great Room. :)
Anyways, I picked out the new floor and hopefully they will come measure today or tomorrow because than I will know more about when they will actually put the floor down. And in about an hour period I made the decision to paint before I get the new floor and realized that picking out paint is 379% harder than picking out floors. Heaven forbid that I ever have to pick out wallpaper.
Rebekah and Mark said I just need to get over it and pick out some colors and stop trying to make it perfect and all that,blah, blah, blah, but ya'll-it makes my chest hurt when I look at all the colors. They are all so pretty! And there are so many of them! And what if I paint the whole great room and then I hate it? And I have to look at it and regret it and when people come over I feel the need to explain how I "almost" choose the right color, but I made a quick decision and I'm sorry they are having to sit in my great room and look at this awful color.
Oh ya'll. And right before Christmas. Because that is perfectly logical, right? Its my fault because I have hemmed and hawed for six months about what kind of floor I want. Yesterday my mother-in-law took me to Lowes and basically said in a very nice sweet, but assertive way, "Wendy Clark-pick out some floor-now!"
So, my question to you is-do you just know what you want or does the thought of picking out paint colors make you sick to your stomach? And if, you are one of those people who just knows how to decorate and how to pick out colors, will you come do it for me?
