3 Is A Magic Number

So the winner is number 3! Thank you everyone for your comments, emails, texts and phone calls.
Lil Ricky however sealed the deal.  And thank you Jo for the idea…of course I should have thought of it…which one does Miss Ricky look best on!  LOL


Seriously, I just went out in the studio and took a ton of pictures. And this was the one that shows up the best. The lightest ones, along with the white walls reflect the light too much and washed everything out.  The oak one gave a yellow tint I didn’t like….and the darkest one was just too dark. And number 3 was the one most voted on :)
 But I’m just glad that’s done! 
However it’s amazing what you learn to do when you don’t have the one who use to do everything around any longer.  

I’ve hired contractors, learned to replace a sink, use equipment that I was once scared of….but I’m learning…..sometimes the hard way. Like the other day I was using the power washer to wash the house and didn’t realize you CAN’T get the hose to the gun near the machine… because it’s HOT…and it will burn a hole in it…. Oh and then, DO NOT put your hand over it to try to stop the water from gushing out….I nearly power washed my skin off…lol.  And ohhh the poor gentlemen at Lowes who helping me find a replacement hose and the right attachment so it fit my machine. Says to me “You will need to get your husband to tighten this up for you.” And without think I blurted out ….I can’t do that my husband’s dead.  I know I made him feel so bad….but I didn’t cry….I think he would have cried with me if I did…lol. Well, you have to laugh or you will cry.  Richard was a man of joy and I’m sure he is looking down and loving the Annie show…lol 

And why???? I have no idea…. and I have ceased trying to explain my brain to the world. But every time I hear the number 3 this song goes through my head…

    We love your Lowe's story. Good thing you didn't spray your hand with the washer.
