Hello my friends! I hope you are all doing well.
This week has been a bit of challenge for me in more ways than one.
First it is the painting, which I am over halfway done and it will get done so that isn't too much of an issue. The second one is however. I told you a while back that my daughter has some sleeping issues but never really went into detail about it. She has been diagnosed with severe separation anxiety that presents itself mainly at night. This has been going on for over 5 years now and I am pretty certain it stemmed from my heart attacks and surgery. It is emotionally and physically draining at times. I know we all have our struggles but I feel like I can share this with you and you will understand.
Anyway, we have been doing everything that we can think of for the last five years and this week has just been bad for us. I know that some of you know about this and I thank you so much for your help and support (Mother Warrior).
Why am I telling you this?
I am telling you this because I have been a bit scattered brained and absent and not able to do what I love to do, which is visit you. So if I am here and there that is why. I know that we will get through this but there are just some weeks that are better than others and this is a bad one. Honestly I think that I paint and re-re-do just to get my mind off of things and I seriously think I have creative ADHD and can't sit still. :)
I didn't tell you this for any pity or anything like that, I just wanted to let my friends know where I am coming from. I know that you all know that there is a life behind our blogs and we live and deal with everyday things whether good or bad.
Thank you for letting me get that off my chest, I truly love you all!
Now, why do I need your help?
This is why...
When I finish painting we are putting in a new floor and here are some samples that I picked up.
I tried to get them in the light and the above picture is pretty close to what they actually look like.
I really like the darker one, not only for the color but I love the grain and rustic appeal it has to it.
However, this is what they look like up against the floor that is in our kitchen.
My question to you is do you think that I need to match the floor in the kitchen (they don't make what we have anymore) or do you think that a bit of a difference is ok?
The rooms flow into each other but they are definitely separated by a wall, I don't have an open concept home.
Anyway, thoughts, concerns, questions about having different colored flooring throughout the house would be wonderful!
Thank you again for everything!
On a side note I want to thank my friend Marie from Sally Lee by the Sea for featuring my beach bedroom on Monday. Her and her family share so many wonderful beach, ocean, and coastal inspirations and will take you on a vacation without having to go anywhere! If you have not met them, please do! :)
