On Thursday I took the kids to the park before ice skating. The weather has been mild for February, and I was feeling cooped up in the house.
I kind of hate the fact that our house has dark floors, but on the other hand I feel ashamed of the fact that I hate this. I know there are people with actual problems in the world, so dark floors really aren’t that big of a deal…except that I am in the house with the kids for most of the day, and I really think I would feel more uplifted if there were lighter floors. More natural light in general would be great, but lighter floors would help offset the lack of light. Anyway, that’s me being spoiled and petulant–and going to the park helped me forget how oppressed I feel by the dark palate at home.
