Weekend Update

Hey dudes, how was your weekend? Ben and I busted our collective ass painting and cleaning and moving and it still looks an 82 year old grandma with 23 cats and alzheimers lives here. It's kind of disheartening, but you have to break some eggs to make an omelette, right? We did at least completely paint ONE room (Ike's future room) and it's... dark. Like, really dark. Outer space dark matter dark. I think it's going to be ok once we put his furniture and some light window treatments in there, but right now I'm kind of crossing my fingers and hoping he doesn't grow up to be a depressed adolescent who only listens to The Cure and dyes his hair purple.

Oh wait -- that was me.

Anyway, I don't have a lot of time today because Karly's hubs Matt is coming over to rip out the godforsaken built in desk that's encroaching on my soon-to-be beautiful dinette. Anyone need a 24x40 slab of green and rust granite? Didn't think so.

And then I have to decide between this color:

And this color:

To paint the dinette. I'm not conflicted, or anything. These aren't 100% diametrically opposed AT ALL.

Meanwhile, I am dreaming of ripping out the entire kitchen. How did I ever think I could live -- even temporarily -- with honey oak cabinets? The wood grain alone is making me hallucinate. I think it's trying to kill me. (you can see what it looks like in the mls pictures HERE)

Here's what I would like to place in its stead:

Any of these will do just fine, thanks.

Ok, must organize/clean/moon over paint swatches.

Any votes for one or the other color I posted?
