We're All Dreaming (and losing sleep because of it!)

This is a picture of the house on the acreage we are "so close" to calling our own. It's hard not to dream and plan about living there. The conditions for the sale of our home are to be removed by Friday. That's only 4 more sleeps! I hope I can make it through the next 4 days. Sleep is something I'm feeling deprived of right now, and part of the reason is because I'm having trouble falling asleep. Instead of drifting off into dreamland like I should be, I'm "planning" in my mind all of the changes I plan to make to the interior of the house on the acreage.

The kitchen cupboards are currently a baby blue with white knobs, etc. Painting the cupboards will be my first project. I like the color blue, just not for my cupboards. What I have planned for a color scheme may sound worse than baby blue to some people, but I'm going to keep my kitchen's color scheme a secret and I'll post "after" pictures of the kitchen once I've completed my painting.

I've been searching for bedding for the new bed that we recently purchased (we don't have it yet . . . we don't get it until we move out to the new place). I've got some specific ideas about how the master bedroom is going to "end up" but it's a bit of a challenge trying to find bedding at a semi-reasonable price to match what's going on in my mind as far as color scheme goes. We've never had really good bedding before. Oh, yes, we've had "bed-in-a-bag" bedding (two different styles since we've been married), but the quality was somewhat to be desired. Now that we're making this big change in location, we thought that the decorating in our bedroom should actually be front-and-centre for once. Therefore, we're buying high-quality bedding and giving lots of consideration to paint colors, etc.

The boys have been dreaming too. . . tonight they were having a hard time falling asleep because all they could do was talk about the acreage, and their plans for their rooms, and everything else that they could think of to avoid falling asleep. Did I mention that it was 11:55 p.m. before they fell asleep last night? Well, it was, and that's because of my insistence upon us all taking a family nap. That will teach me. Thank goodness there was no school today, otherwise I'm not sure how well they would have been functioning in their role as students.

So, off to bed I will now go and hopefully I can fall asleep quickly and easily. I'm supposed to be getting lots of rest right now in order to recuperate from my illness, but I haven't been doing too well in that department. I've got 2 school days this week where everyone is in school (Ty's in Kindergarten, so he doesn't go every day), so I'll be able to catch some naps on those days, I hope.

Good night, sweet dreams!
