This weekend has not gone as planned.
I planned to spend it cleaning, organizing, visiting with friends,crafting…
Instead I have spent most of it flat on my back.
Saturday morning I threw my back out cleaning my office/studio.
I think it was the combination of too much furniture moving and too much stress (albeit regular life stress, but it is still stress all the same…)
So down I went. And there I stayed.
I think maybe my body is trying to tell me something.
Like “hey you, sit down will ya? you are not super woman!”
All this time doing only one thing at a time has given me the chance to think.
Sometimes I think about deep things.
Sometimes I think about painting chairs.
Here are a few of my thoughts with pictures.
I added (well I pointed and the boys did the work) this rug to the TV area. I think it is a good start at redifining and seperating the 2 areas. Grounds the sitting area a bit don’t you think?
My other thought is to convert some of the white furniture to color.
But should I paint the wood chairs at the craft table (this image is from Maine Cottage.)
Or should I color-up the upholstered pieces? With patterns or solids?
(these chairs come from Overstock, Ikea and Crate and Barrel)
I know which one would be easier and cheaper and faster, but is it the right choice?

In adoption news, there is none really.
Except that both Miles and I would go tomorrow and get the girls if we could.
I wish getting them was as easy (for me) as getting pregnant was.
Luckily for us cooler heads (Sweet Man, Wylie, DHS…) prevail.
So say a little prayer for us as we begin to tackle things like physicals, finger printing, & form after form.
This change isn’t as easy as moving furniture.
Maybe considering the state of my back, that is a good thing?
The Zebra is back. Like it. grounds the room. No more color. It is perfect the way it is.
Get well soon, chica. Love the living room!
