At least, that’s what my grandmother used to say. Sometimes, when a baby hasn’t slept in days and I’m running on caffeine and adrenaline, what I really need is rest; but other days, like yesterday, a change is really as good as a rest. What I needed yesterday was to complete a task that would still be completed next week. I needed to do something creative. I needed to do something different from the daily routine. And I needed to do it with supplies contained within my house. So when I came across a full can of brown spray paint I had forgotten I owned, I knew what was going to be as good as a rest.
I didn’t realize until halfway through the job that the mackerdoodle was circling me snapping pictures. Believe it or not, this was one of the most flattering angles she managed to capture.
Yes, it needs another shade, but like I said, I was working with what I had in my house at the time. All I need was something different, to use different parts of my brain, and this was it. It was something different, and it was as good as a rest.
