Two losses

March 1 will be a losing day for me.

First, that is the day that I will lose my health insurance.  This decision was not made lightly, but we both have peace about it and believe that all will be well.  We just decided that it would not be wise stewardship to spend $879 per month to insure me with a $5000 deductible, so we will keep our money, make wise health choices, and trust God to keep me well.

Second, I will lose the pink paint on our bedroom walls.  This decision was made rather quickly (in about an hour), or perhaps extremely slowly.  We’ve lived in our house for 14 years and nine months, and for 14 years and nine months, we’ve slept in a room that is painted a bright Victorian pink that I don’t particularly like.  It’s time for a change.

Our great friend, Dave Brown, is a painter by profession, and he will be painting our bedroom and closet a lovely Malted Milk (by Sherwin Williams).  In addition, if the timing works out, he will be painting our entrance hall, stairwell, and upstairs hall all Cottage Cream, which will match our living room and dining room.  All the trim – and there is a LOT of trim in our house – will be Dover White.  We are very excited about the new look, and we’re really honored to have Dave do the job.  Everything Dave does is excellent, and it is our fondest hope that he will still be on speaking terms with us at that end of this grand endeavor (given all that trim).
