I hope you're not too angry with me for painting the door. I mean, the doors. You were adamant about me NOT painting the gate, so I left it alone...for you. I didn't think you'd really mind if I painted the front door...it's already painted. And it can always be painted again. (It's just paint.)
You never really said anything or reacted to the front door being blue. I didn't think you even noticed. Afterall, you never come IN or OUT of that door. Then when one of the kids excitedly told you about it, you didn't display any distaste for the color. At least, not out loud. Maybe in your mind you did, but you held it in because you were too tired from your hard day at work.
I, personally, love it! It makes me think of the ocean when I get a glimpse of it driving down the street. Remember the trips we used to take to the beach? We'd try to get there any chance we could get! It's our favorite place to be. Maybe someday we'll end up living by one... (Oh dear, if anyone will BUY a house with a BLUE door! I don't know...it could potentially lose a sale for us...)
You always come home through the side entrance. And being that it's just around the corner from the front door, I really felt strongly that they should match. You know I'm not uptight about things "matching", but this seemed important and crucial to the flow of the exterior of the house. I thought you of all people would consider that. So I painted it, in the thick of the humidity, working hard before the sun had a chance to peek around the house and burn my little shoulders.
I love it! I think the greenery "pops" and Cowboy Bud seems more at home now. All I need now is to plant more bouganvillea. The contrast with the doors will be beautiful! Don't you think? Sweetie? I know you'll get used to them. And pretty soon, you won't even notice they're blue. I'll wait it out. (Just like the cabinets I painted. Remember? You hated them. But you haven't said anything about them for the last couple of years. I don't think you notice them anymore. That wasn't so bad, was it?)
