Several weeks ago, I made The List — 20 tasks that I’ve been meaning to get to around the house. So far, I’ve pretty much done a lousy job getting to any of the items on The List. But there is one task that I really, really want to do: paint the porch ceiling blue.
Thus far, I have done a meticulous job selecting the paint color. I gathered a bunch of paint swatch possibilities and taped them onto the porch right near the ceiling.
Then I stared at them a long time. Then I asked Mark his advice. Then I ignored his advice. Then I selected a color and purchased the paint. That’s right, one of these lucky paint colors has been declared the winner.
But then I lost steam and the weather got cold. However, I am writing this post to make a commitment to the Internet and all my many, many readers (Hi, Mom and Dad!): This weekend I am painting the porch.
I figure if I publicly declare that the painting will happen this weekend then I’ll surely do it, right? Uh, right?
