Adam and I are moving in together.
I kind of already announced this.
So it’s not like it’s a big surprise.
The reason it’s news today is that we just finished painting our bedroom and moving the furniture around to make room for my stuff. I plan on officially being moved in by the second week of October.
So today we painted. The bedroom color is a beautiful tannish green.
There’s more green in the paint than we’d originally thought but that’s actually okay since our original color swatches were all on the green side. It’s a very adult color and is rich with all of the dark wood furniture that fills the room. And since I am a lighting designer you know the color mixes well with the warm amber tones of incandescent lighting.
I was giddy as a school girl all day. In fact I think I annoyed Adam a bit. He was in work mode and I just wanted to take in the day in all it’s importance. Adam is a bit of a neat freak. He likes his things exactly where they are supposed to go. So when I started moving things around today to clear the room for painting etc. I think he panicked a little. He quickly settled into things though and was more excited than me when we had put the last of the things away and stood back to look at our work. I have told him that the chaos is only going to get worse. I don’t know anyway to move and unpack without things being unsettled for a couple of weeks. I will just have to distract him with other activities so he doesn’t notice the mess.
I do have to say that I can hardly wait till I can call Inwood my home…for real.
