I live with a home maintenance enthusiast (freak) who has decided that our house needs to be painted now. The thing about Doc's home maintenance enthusiasm is that he doesn't have many actual home maintenance skills. What he does have is a long list of people who do have home maintenance skills to choose from when he suddenly decides something must be done (there are so many workmen who know our garage door code that we might as well not even have locks on our doors). He has already called a painter and then he called on me to choose a color. I tried to hang up on his call, but the color samples landed on my desk anyway. I haven't gotten very far with the decision making process. After all, it will be a color I have to look at every time I come home for years. I have, at least, gotten as far as deciding what I don't want.
