Soooo…. from my last posting, the bed questions have been solved. We decided to go to Des Moines Tuesday night to look for a mattress..I knew there was going to be an issue about what type of bed we came home with. As we seem to have opposite opinions on nearly everything, I knew this was going to be no different..BUT…while on our way, the trailer parts guy called to tell us they had a front bunk for our trailer and it was going to cost us just over $900…that did not include shipping from Michigan…so that made the decision for us…we decided to keep the waterbed for now…we decided to take “someone’s” advice and get a thick pad for it so we might not have to buy a heater…for the last couple of days, he has plugged it in for a short time just to take the chill out and I have been very happy…and I think that is all he really lives for anyway…to assure that I’m happy. While in Des Moines, I got a wild hair….and decided that I was going to paint the bathroom, I had been wanting to go with a different theme so we went to Lowes…while there, I decided that I really needed to cover up that awful color in the green room aka computer room…the room was aptly named because it had emerald green plush carpet on the floor and I had always painted the walls about the same shade of green…I found a dark green, but knew it wouldn’t go with the carpet soooooo…he knew exactly how to solve that problem…
The old green carpet was 23 years old….that way I was able to get the paint that I wanted…he did all of the trim painting for me because he thinks I’m a dirty painter…which I don’t disagree…but I think it you can’t go to work for a week with evidence of your new paint job, then why bother painting.
I had thought I would paint the bathroom and the “green” room the same color so we cleaned our brush and roller along the black line that I had him paint when I decided I wanted a pepto bismal pink bathroom…figured it would take a couple of coats to cover the solid black line….and then I cleaned my roller on the rest of the walls and decided it was just too dark for the bathroom..so now my bathroom wall looks like this….
and now I HAVE to pick out a new color and paint the bathroom…decisions, decisions.
So..that is what I’ve been doing….
Until next time….
