i love this little guy he was so hilarious! after his neuter we gave him some food (kittens and puppies get low blood glucose rapidly) and we discovered that he sounds like a turkey when he eats! not sure why the video isn't working. here it is - posted it on youtube i'm feeling very much like working on organization and decluttering to help with the home situation. i'm going to follow along with flylady here: i've followed flylady in the past but it all got overwhelming with the emails and such. woubbie's thread is a great way to follow along 224 i'm going to tackle our master bedroom first, because it will require the least work. it is the only room with a decent floor, which is major. the living room and other bedroom floors need to be refinished. the kitchen and bathroom floors need to be ripped out and replaced. the master bedroom has a floor that can stay, so that's where i'll start: 1) scrape off all paint 2) paint all trims, closet door and bedroom door 3) change handles on the doors - glass door knobs (consistent with 1940 build). i have no idea if the doors are original, but they'll stay. 4) repaint room this is the color palette i will go off of for the entire house (probably staying away from the pink), sticking with blue/green for wall colors and using the oranges/reds/yellows/brighter blue and greens for accents in curtains/bedding/throws, etc. this is the inspiration, which i know is nuts, but it has all of the colors i want - the super pale green, the burnt orange, navy, darker blues and greens...exactly the colors for the house and from that color palette!
