The area in question is just above the lights that will be on either side of our bed. MD wants the ceiling painted that connects to the arch that is painted. I am for leaving it alone. To help with decisions, the dark areas where the lights are will have white moulding around them which will give more separation between the colors. MD said that painting the ceiling dark will give it more pizazz, really do men know what that is?

But looking into the room every now and again to see his progress seems to make the mess a little less painful. The above view is the wall where our bed is going. The two drywall boxes sticking out of the wall are going to be our night stands. I like as little furniture as possible (can you tell?).
This view is of the shelving/entertainment center MD built for across our bed. He wants to be able to watch TV in bed. But what he forgets is that the second his head hits the pillow he is snoring and sound asleep. AND he never lets me watch TV if he wants to sleep. So someone tell me again WHY I have to have a TV in my bedroom?
MD and I went to Home Depot and Lowe's today to price out flooring and pick paint colors. I even got to check out the fancy closet systems. We have agreed on the colors.
No do not freak out, they are dark (actually darker than the picture shows). But we wabt the white moulding to pop out. So these colors should do the trick. The first color is really not part of our color choices, it is one they just stuck in there. The second color is "Winter Oak" from Behr as is the third color "Ashwood". We will be installing wood floors, kind of a medium red oak. That was pretty much my day in a hand bag.
Oh yeah can not forget that I did do research for my term paper all afternoon, as well as starting my essays for the test I have on Wednesday. Joy Joy Happy Happy.
School almost done...schoold almost done. Have to keep telling myself this.

On a side note, mom and dad made it home from Florida just fine. BUT they came home to many not so happy surprises. First, they had to put out $300 for a service man to come on a Sunday to fix their thermostat so they could warm up the house. Second, they had to call an adjuster to come because a large branch fell from one of their large trees and took out their fence. Third, the truck battery was dead and had to be recharged before he could start it. Fourth, they went down to the family room in the basement to find they had water damage and to top it off black mold had set up residence in their walls. And to add insult to injury the adjuster informed them they would not cover the damage in the basement due to the fact that is was surface water that got in the basement and they do not cover that type of damage. You need to have flood insurance to get this type of water damage covered. Who would have ever thought they should have gotten flood insurance. They do not live anywhere near low areas that would have been effected by "flash floods" nor have they ever had a problem with water getting into the basement.
Got to love those Insurance Companies. What mom and dad do not realize yet is that even though the insurance company will not pay they will still have a claim against their account. And that is what is truly not fair.
