Loki’s room has finally been painted. They are finishing up right now.
Sparky and I could not decide on exactly what color cream we liked. Eight 1.5 litre samples later, we decided on a sea foam blue. It’s called Tibet. Go figure. Anyone want eight -1.5 litre buckets of different shades of off white? Our painter man finally got tired of delivering these 10 euro samples and sent us to his paint man. We walked in, picked out the color, ordered it in a 12 litre bucket and walked away. I saw it for the first time on the wall last night after the entire room was finished. We didn’t try it out, we just went with it after three months of back and forth. And it works. Again, whoda thunk?
In other news, Loki needs to stay where he is today. Today is my mother’s birthday. I found out I was pregnant on the day her mother died and I really don’t want to deal with the superstitious fallout. My grandmother’s name was Rosemary and you can imagine how my siblings would react.
Loki also needs to avoid these dates: April 20th – Hitler’s birthday and May 1st – Mother Mutti’s birthday.
Otherwise, I’ve been told jumping off kitchen chairs is a really good way to jump start labor.
Painting Update: They got the wrong color for the hallway last time. After painting half of the hall Sand, they realized it was supposed to be Pebble.
In honor of my mother, I’ll leave a bit of her advice:
Never fuck up your kids or your credit.
I’ve got the credit part down, Mom. I’ll work hard on the kid.
