Not too sure which one is Lucy and which is Ethel:
What can you control?
I decided it was time for a kitchen makeover. First, I had a wall in my kitchen with a growth. Well not really a growth, but something was going on, the drywall was protruding out and I just knew that if we touched it, it would crumble. So we never did, we just ignored it and hoped everyone else did too. I certainly never wanted to invest money in the kitchen with a wall like that, where would the logic be in that. But finally I did get the wall fixed and could not wait to paint it. This project had so many similarities to my life that I think it may take me quite a while to process it all.
When things in my life seem to be out of control or I could better say not in my control anymore, (ha, like they ever where anyways) I always get a desire to make changes, whether it is to my hair, my curtains (I don't know where that comes from), and this time it was my kitchen.
I enlisted the help of my sister. How much fun we had. Wow! We laughed and there were some tears, there are always tears when we get together, but there was more laughter this time. Sometimes we just crack each other up.
Sondra reminded me the last time we painted together, it was 10 years ago and she was helping me put the nursery together in preparation for our first baby. We were both about 7.5 mths pregnant and couldn't wait to start decorating. It turned out very nice. It seems so long ago now.
