Avoidance in June

June 25, 2011

I have spent a good chunk of June feeling stressed out and overwhelmed and trying to not freak right out. In practice, this looks like me sitting on the couch curled up with another Game of Thrones book - the HBO series hooked me, and if July is as stressful as June then I will finish all of the published books in time for the next one to be released in mid-July.

Painting

When we last left the blog, Steve had fallen off of a ladder and spilled blood-red paint all over the entryway. He's fine, by the way. We finally stopped arguing about paint because we got all of the paint on the wall and I'm never painting again.

We had some very lovely and talented friends help us, which proved to be beneficial in two ways: 1. the painting went super quick, and 2. Steve and I weren't painting in the same room even once.

Painting the Entryway Red

June 1, 2011

Steve and I decided that we wouldn't fight about paint colors all weekend. In order to facilitate that decision, Olive and I went to Homer. Without him.

We got to spend good quality time with my mom planning wedding decorations, hearing all about my brother's recent diving trip to Fiji, and not arguing about paint colors.

Wedding planning with my mom.

While we were sitting at that exact table minutes after I took the above photo, Steve txt me the following:

Red Paint Incident

See that chandelier? The chandelier we hate? Our plans to replace that chandelier were Future, in the Eventually kind of way. Steve had removed the glass pieces from it so he could swing it out of the way and paint the tall entryway. And here it is on the floor.

Me: :o Broken?
Steve: Me or the chandelier?
Me: Did you fall?
Steve: Yes.
