We had been wanting to paint the exterior of our old farmhouse ever since we moved in a year and a half ago. A few months ago, we finally bit the bullet and did it! I am very happy with the results, it is much brighter and has a more modern feel. There is still a long list of improvements we want to accomplish (removing the random witch’s cauldron from front yard is one of them), but little by little we are making this house our home.
Much like the guy you like, who is…well…just not that into you, he would string me along. He would tell me he is almost ready to paint my house, but he’s not one to put anything on the calendar or commit to a date. He would give me a little glimmer of hope that my house would be next, but then I’d wait, and wait, and wait…no phone calls….no texts. In an effort to avoid seeming too needy, I would try my best to restrain from contacting him too often, and when I did actually get to speak with him, I’d try to avoid asking too many questions for fear of possibly scaring him away. He randomly stopped by one day, to assess the paint situation and determine how many gallons he would need. I got very excited that we MUST be the next house in line….but then crickets chirped…for another 3 weeks. I want him to WANT to paint my house. Is that too much to ask?
I also realize why this man is divorced.
