Sabrina is the name of the color that has been chosen for our bedroom walls. Sabrina has been pushed aside for months, waiting for her turn in the spotlight.

When I woke up yesterday, I felt like this weekend needed to be different. I went for a swim in the morning and decided to forgo a long run in the afternoon so that I would have time to get Sabrina out of the garage and into the bedroom where she belonged.

The conversation I had with Husband when he got home sounded like this:

"Don't go in the bedroom until I get back home, the walls need to dry."

"What do you mean, need to dry?"

"I started painting and the walls by the door are still wet. I need to go out to get a few things. Wait until I get back home before you go in there."

"You started painting?!?! I thought you were going for a run."

"Yeah, well I figured if I got started today, we could probably get it finished this weekend. And that would be one thing off our list before the tiling project"

"Wow. Thanks."

You know what? I think I made the right decision. I'm happy Sabrina finally made her debut.


  1. Sabrina looks like the color of my bedroom, only it was called "ionic sky"

  2. I never heard of a sabrina color. As a guy, all those shades look the same with me..

    Remember, for a really big job (I painted my garage last year), a spray gun is a person's best friend..

  3. Me no like painting. My wife is the painter in the family and I am very thankful for it. I bet your husband is as well. I think you made the right decision.

  4. I have a new blog, if you have a second come and visit

  5. Go Sabrina! We've been putting off a major kitchen remodel. Every now and again, I get the itch to take the hammer and start pounding - while he's at work of course. You know, just to get the ball rolling. ;)
