Busy Morning Already

I started this morning by wrestling a 270 lb sofa from the living room to the dining room. I asked Hubby last night to help, but he never answered, so I moved it this morning. When he came downstairs, he said "Oh, I guess you didn't need my help." I was kinda upset, I really could have used the help, but sometimes getting him to help is like asking him to cut off an arm or leg, so I just go on without the help. I was looking at the calendar and realised that I have almost 3 weeks to paint and not 2, so I'm happy. This weekend we can get the paint! I still refuse to paint while Hubby is here :) It would be sooo much easier and less stressful without his help. Guess that's all...

Preping the walls

I spent today emptying out the livingroom and getting the walls ready for paint. I decided I didn't like the color that we tested, it was just too orange for me. I picked another color called Cottage Yellow, I'm thinking that will look great with the new carpet. Got a call from Lowe's, and they will be shipping the carpet roll to them on the 24th of this month, that means that we could have it installed by the end of that week!! I can't wait to get it finished!! I will be honest, when we were told that it would be at the store in 2 weeks, that is what I was planning on, but what's another week I guess...More soon.

First Big Project

Hubby and I have decided the living room needed a makeover. Today we ordered new carpeting and are pondering over a paint color. Currently there is a swatch on the wall, and I'm trying to decide if I like it or not. It's a little more orange then what I first thought, but I'm hoping with the dark colored carpet, it will be OK. Hubby and I don't work well on projects together, so this have me very worried. I'm hoping that I can do most of it while him and Mathai are gone :) I'll update soon. The knit throw that I'm working on is coming along well. I'm slowing down a little on it, as my wrist is starting to hurt and I think it might be carpal tunnel syndrome :(
