Thank Goodness....

It is Friday.

As I was falling asleep last night, I started thinking thoughts like- oh! I never finished this project or oh! I never wrote that blog post. To be quite honest, I constantly feel as if I am pushing against time and it just pushes right back! Why oh why isn't there 30 hours in the day?

So. I decided that instead of being negative about what I have not accomplished this week, I thought I'd be positive and think about what I have accomplished since I woke up Monday morning.

I have...
worked fifty some-odd hours... presented at a community council hearing... cooked our favorite spinach pesto pasta (on the one night I was home from work before 8 pm!)... paid our bills... loved on our pups... helped my college-aged sister handle a crisis about which boy she should let take her out to dinner on her birthday (I know, the problems we have when we're only 19!)... wrote my sister a beautiful birthday card... had a lovely conversation with my beautiful grandmother on her birthday... loved on my husband when he had a bad day... watched an episode of Sister Wives (has anyone else seen that show? crazy!)... attended a home owners association meeting... created a "looks for less" mood board... had lunch with a Georgia Supreme Court Justice... and worked on our big painting project.

How's that for a to-do list?! Now that I'm taking a positive perspective, I see that I should be patting myself on the back instead of being frustrated at myself for not getting everything done. Sometimes all we need is a little bit of positive.

Now to the fun stuff. As I mentioned, we've got a big painting project going. Let's dramatize this- we are actually in the middle of
Operation Paint Project 2010

at our house! Our project will be a three stage process. And, of course, you all know about and have given me some incredible input on stage three of the project.  Hopefully we'll be ready to unveil

Operation Paint Project 2010:
Phase One

early next week! But until then... here's a little sneak peek.

No wonder I'm a little stressed- this has been the state of my kitchen for the last week!!

What's that I see in the corner? Awwww.

And while we're at it, here's a sneak peek into

Phase Two

Lets hope this day goes by quickly, as I know we're all looking forward to a weekend of fun and relaxation! Happy Friday, everyone!!

I need to start to get painting our new place. Thanks for the inspiration. It's almost so much fun until you actually start!!

That's the spirit! :) It is hard to live with your kitchen torn apart, but I bet it will be worth it in the end! Can't wait to see . . .

I know the feeling...we had painters in our house for almost a month straight tearing up just about every room, it feels overwhelming, but so worth it in the end!

I just found your blog and I gave a look at your house tour. I like very much your style and I absolutely love love love the studio.

Thanks, ladies! I'm trying to stay positive... and not eat too much fast food since it's virtually impossible to cook in this mess! :) But as they say, I guess it's got to get ugly before it gets prettier!
