My Light - MOJO202

Hope all is well with you! This week has been a little wild. So I am just now posting my entry for Mojo Monday. Good thing I have until 10PM MST... (wink, wink...)

Now a funny story for your entertainment...

Hubs and son made a little jaunt to Virginia this weekend to get Michael into his new apartment. It is hard to believe that summer is almost over and he will be returning to Liberty for his second year of graduate studies. Where does the time go? So while the menfolk were out, I decided to take on a few "little" projects. I say this completely tongue in cheek as the projects I take on never seem to be "little..." I am sure you have been there too!

The boys pulled out of town Thursday afternoon. I had a hair appointment immediately after work. So after two hours of covering my gray... (yes, now you know the bitter truth...) I ventured to my local box store to buy some paint for a corner cabinet. In my mind I visualized a sophisticated black to match a few other pieces in our living room. So at 8:30 PM, nearly 30 minutes shy of my bedtime) I pick a paint chip and go to the counter to get it mixed. I was quite happy with my choice... Chimney Sweep...

For whatever reason I do not sleep well when the fellows are on the road. And Dakota's dear puppies need to be rotated every four hours. So I decided I would start the great cabinet makeover at 10PM... About midnight, I concluded I was too tired and needed to put the paintbrush up and go to bed. After analyzing the cabinet, I decided I must be EXTREMELY tired and the lighting poor as the cabinet was not quite what I had in mind. At 4AM the alarm goes off and I change the pups. I decided that I must not waste valuable time and began to paint again... By 6AM I finished and settled down to get a cup of coffee. And then the true colors of the situation dawned about 7AM... My lovely BLACK cabinet is CONFEDERATE GRAY... sigh... But hey, it looks great!!! So warning to all my dear readers... do not paint when you are tired and/or it is dark... I told hubs the hair color must have soaked my brain as I can no longer tell paint colors... lol...

Have a wonderful day!

lori, sounds like exactly what I do all the time!
I can't believe you have a grown child. I honestly thought you were too young to even be a mom!!!!
Love the card. Hugs, Barb

Great colors!

It's always good not to have everything match perfectly. ;)

LOL, I can totaly relate. My "little" ideas usually turn into BIG projects. I have a son who leaves in a week & a half to go back for his second year of college. Snif, snif...I can feel your pain. On one hand, I am so proud of him and on the other hand, I don't want to see him go.

Hope the cabinet color turns out to be a happy accident:)
