The “I told you so” score board: Cara-0 Eric-1
Eric and I usually don’t hold a grudge (for too long) nor do we like to wag the I-told-you-so finger in each others faces, but I have to give credit when due. Eric told me so…and saved us much frustration. I’ll explain.
You see, out the two of us, Eric is the definitely the bigger instant gratification junkie. No waiting needed. He’s the it-should-have-been-done-yesterday kind of fellow.
Imagine my surprise when, after we picked out paint colors for the entire house, Eric insisted we try out a few sample swipes first, just to be sure….What? No. We both like these colors. Let’s just buy them and go to town…No, Cara. I really think we should try a few different samples first…Eric, can’t we just pretend that we did and just get crackin’?
E-Dub won and thank the high heavens for that. The “creamy neutrals” we were going for actually turned out to be an unexpected shade of yellow & orange.
