Goodbye old friend
When Nate and I moved into this house, there were a couple of huge murals that were on the walls in the living room and the bedroom. They were not exactly my taste, and I swore I would get rid of them as soon as possible. I took down the deer grazing in my dinig room right away and repainted the wall, but the mountain lake scene in my bedroom just sat there and sat there. I decorated and redecorated every room in the house, but our bedroom just went on displaying that scenic view. Well, until yesterday. With some help from my mother-in-law, I tore, scraped, and steamed that mountain down. This will definitely help our house sell, and with a fresh coat of paint, I'm sure it will look incredible. I can't believe I am saying this, but I was actully a little sad about the whole thing. Somehow, I am going to miss it! It may have been ugly, but it had a special charm that at first amused me and apparently grew into something resembling fondness. Who knew!?!? Oh well. I don't miss it enough to install one in my new bedroom! And at least I have some photos to always remind me of my very own mountain lake!
