You are Not Alone

What is it that made women in the fifties clean all day while wearing pearls and skirts (cleaning in skirts!)? Whatever they were on, I need some.
I have been so lazy lately, doing one load of laundry getting everyone dressed and emptying the dishwasher is all I can do on some days. Other days I want to paint the entire house from top to bottom, and I contemplate it but never do anything about it. BTW, my kitchen is a bright green color that I hate and I really want to change it, but to what color? What is a good kitchen color and I don't say yellow, I really don't like yellow paint. It is attached to a beige family room, if that helps.

I am trying to organize things for a garage sale we want to have in late September but I realized I have no idea what I am doing. I am not sure I have ever even been to a garage sale before. I have no idea how to price things.
I should just put everything up on craigslist first, I may even make more money that way, but my digital camera is still broken and I have not been motivated to research or look at any new ones.
Does this post make you feel tired and depressed as it made me writing it? Wow, I am like my very own Cybalta commercial. You know the one, it makes you feel like killing yourself, even the dog in the commercial is depressed and tired of life? Great marketing, the music alone makes you want to call your doctor to get that drug.
Or in my case at least the one that makes you want to clean in your pearls!

    wow, I thought I was the only one feeling that way right now

  2. Well, I ain't depressed but I'm lazy as all get out. That counts for something, right?? :)

  3. Life is blah sometimes, huh?

    How do you feel about blue? A sort of slate blue might work.

  4. Geez, you just described my day like you've been living in my house.

    As far as your kitchen....I would go with a light sage green.

  5. Life definitely has a way of sucking a lot of the energy and joy out of it. Hope things turn around soon for you, even if (as you said) this is just an extreme lazy period. No one needs to feel the extra weight of just getting through the days.

    I painted my kitchen a nice brick red and I LOVE it. It's vibrant and makes me want to be in the space!
