Color Blind

I've spend the weekend spring cleaning. The house is just about company ready. Yea! Part of the spring cleaning was the hall bathroom. I'm talking scrubbing with a toothbrush type cleaning. I also decided to replace the shower curtain liner, the hooks and the shower curtain. I had purchased the curtain and the hooks about a year ago when I noticed signs of wear on the one we had in there. Yes, I procrastinated but finally got it hung up today in anticipation of next weekend's get together.

The curtain is this lovely silvery grey that perfectly compliments the chrome accents in the bathroom. I got it all hung up and stepped back to admire my handiwork. And promptly dropped my jaw. Hanging up, that lovely silvery grey was blue. BLUE. BLUE. Blue.BLUE. blue.  And it looks hideous. Absolutely awful!

I called Princess Penelope in there and asked her what color she thought it was. She looked at me oddly and answered (in that voice that only teenagers who think their parents have lost their minds use)... "Uh...Blue. Why? What color do you think it is??"

Sad thing is, I can't take it back. I bought it a year ago AND I have no clue where the receipt is. Guess I'll be hunting shower curtains this week.

Moral of the story.... don't procrastinate... it will only make you blue.  (okay, yeah, that was weak).


  1. Don't ya just hate when that happens?? It sounds like you are doing some serious cleaning! I'll be doing the same as soon as I get the junk out of the house!

  2. I'm dejunking a bit as I go. Nothing like the prospect of 20 people in your house within a week to make you just TOSS stuff out with nary a qualm! Plan a party! You'll be AMAZED at what you get done!!!!

  3. are definitely right about having an "incentive" to clean. My son is getting confirmed in April and I have 10 out of town guests coming...I'm hoping I can be done with the basement in time! :)!

  4. You can do it!!!! You may feel like falling face down on any handy horizontal surface when you finish, but you CAN do it!!!!!
