My fish, Mordecai, bit the dust today. Maybe I should say sank to the bottom of the bowl. I guess that's better than finding him belly up. I have had him a total of 10 days and now he's gone. I guess I can't raise fish any better than I can houseplants. Poor thing. And I promise I didn't forget to feed him. I cleaned his bowl and fed him and even talked to him. I guess it just wasn't to be. Ben took mercy on me and flushed him down the toilet. Now we do have an animal graveyard of sorts, but for some reason our betas always get flushed instead of buried. Maybe there's something unhealthy going on in our house. Hannah's beta, Troy, and Bethany's beta, George, passed on also. Something is definitely going on. Maybe it's just not my fish raising abilities.
On a brighter note, I finally got my new comforter set in the mail today. It's gorgeous~! Rebekah had gotten sheets for me for Christmas from Linen and Things. Before long they got the little balls of stuff on them and I emailed the company. She paid way too much for them for that to happen. I actually got my money back in the form of a gift certificate so I ordered online.
Now I have to decide what color to paint my bedroom. I guess I'll consult my decorator, Vicki. She is awesome and helped me decide on the colors for my living room and kitchen/dining room. I absolutely love it. Bethany has repainted their bathroom, Ben repainted theirs, so I have to keep up with them. I love my dark blue in our bedroom, but it's time for a change. It's been over a year now since I've been in the mood to paint. After redoing the living room, halls, kitchen and dining rooms I tackled my kitchen cabinets. So I was pretty much tired of painting. I spent most of last summer cleaning, sanding, priming, and painting my cabinets. We replaced the hardware and Donald rehung the cabinet doors for me. This summer I decided to relax. Well, actually I didn't get around to much relaxing, but I didn't paint. I'm sure Donald will be thrilled when he hears of my big plans.
He says our rooms are getting smaller because we have so many coats of paint on them~! Maybe it will keep my mind off Mordecai.
