out with the blue

our kitchen, at least 3/4 of it, is now a buttery yellow. canary to be more exact. i've spent the last 2 days painting, getting the house ready to put on the market. although i love the blue, i have a feeling about 99 percent of the buying market will think it's a little too much. i did, however leave 5 small walls the blue. couldn't bare to part with it all, plus i ran out of paint and have no desire to buy another gallon. now i have to finish painting trim and then touch-up old paint. i did notice that the ceiling and the floors now look dingy and gross. it's a never-ending cycle, we'll never get this house looking 100 percent. at least not in my eyes. tomorrow someone is coming out to look at the water-damaged window sill and i noticed this past weekend that the trim around the garage is starting to fall apart. another thing that probably needs to be fixed before we sell. we need to get out of this house before it implodes on us. anyone looking to buy in springfield...shoot me a line.

Good Luck with the whole selling the house thing. It does get old real fast. Just wait until you start showing the house. But it will all work out. Maybe you will luck out like us in Memphis, the buyer opted to not have a home inspection, probably saved us a ton of money.

Is there any thing at the hospital to "advertise" your house to the new incoming residents or fellows.

Good Luck and have fun.

And your grandma was thinking she would have to cover up the yellow paint in her kitchen before being able to sell. Go figure.
