spring cleaning in November

We are working on replacing the floors in the two spare bedrooms.  We have one room emptied and will work on the other room tomorrow.  Of course now that the rooms are getting emptied it makes me want to get them painted before we move any furniture back in them.  One project always leads to another I suppose.

I can't count how many times I've painted rooms in this house.  I painted the outside of the house 3 times but finally had vinyl siding installed because I knew I was never going to paint it again in the remainder of my lifetime.  

We need some sheetrock repaired so we are thinking of just hiring the repair and painting done.  I haven't gotten an estimate yet and that might just change my mind.  We wouldn't be starting these projects before the holidays if my daughter wasn't thinking about coming home for awhile until she finds another house to purchase.  

Why is it so hard to pick a paint color?  I like the color I have now but I guess I think if I'm going to go to the trouble of painting I should pick something new.  But change the color then I'll want to buy new linens and the list just goes on and on.   Oh brother.......now I have to make decisions.

And if you decide to just touch up and paint one wall, it makes the one next to it look so dingy that you have to paint it too. Yes, one thing definitely leads to another....
