Economy hits home

Jamie was laid off from work on Friday (he builds custom homes) ~ they do have a "return to work" date, which is set for July/Aug right now. So he'll have some time to get a few things done around painting the spare room (back to apartment white) ;( where our bedroom will be going once done.
The larger of the 2 bedrooms (which is our BR at the moment) will be my studio space.
There's a spare cedar shelf from the armoire, that needs 4 legs, so I can make use of it in the studio.
I give him 2 weeks before he starts wishing he were back at work, lol.

I'll be helping him with the painting when I'm home. I want it done asap so I can get the studio organized. We have to repaint this whole place before next spring when we move ~ I just can't live without color on the walls (we rent), so we paint w/COLOR :) Now I wish we would have bought a home when we talked about it a few years ago but, I walked away from one when I divorced, and was a little unsure about buying another. At this point in our lives, the only way we will own a home, is to win the lottery. Could happen I suppose :) Kind of sad, seeing Jamie builds beautiful homes for a living...

We've been together for 10 years; both have a child the same age ~(he a boy ~ me a girl). Now they're both in their 20's beginning their own lives, and we're living life one day at a time, trying to enjoy every minute
we can...

Oh ~ I recently decided, I am DONE painting (with color) when we move, I will decorate with color instead, and repaint (if ness) with the color already there (or very close) ;o)

I'm rambling, thanks 4 listening...hope I didn't bore you!
