Paint, Pictures, Primates, Pity

Today there are 4-P's in my life:
First Paint: I finally became somewhat unlazy and painted my hall and E's bedroom. After 2 1/2 years of living in this house I'd say it was about time. E's walls were terrible. They had that impossible to clean chalky white paint that the builder uses because they want to spend as little money as possible into building the house. But now it's nice and fresh and pretty. I also bought material to make him new curtains. The project isn't quite finished, I still have touch up work to do that will wait until tomorrow.
Pictures: On Saturday we had our family pictures taken, the first time since E was 1, we're terrible at that kind of thing! I'll post them when I get them back.
Primates: You may have to stretch with me on this one. I am 100% a creationist in my belief of how the universe was created. I know that we have a loving Heavenly Father who created our world. However that does not take away from my side belief in evolution. I believe that it is very much a scientific fact that God placed creatures here on Earth and some have evolved into new forms. That said, What makes humans higher primates?: opposable thumbs! Why am I bothering with all of this silly info? I have a piece of my thumbnail that is growing down into my skin, and it hurts like heck! It's funny how I never think of how terrible life would be without thumbs, until one is incapacitated.
Pity: It seems my previous post about my friendship expectations has been reviewed somewhat differently than what I intended. I know that friendships change and that I shouldn't expect my friendship with Courtney to remain as it once was, I am a realist. My quandry is thus: why in the 5+ years since we moved from Daly City has it seemed that there are no other kindred spirits out there, are my friendship expectations too high?

I'm excited to see what fun colors you chose for Ethan's room. I've been in my house for 3 1/2 years and my rooms still don't have all their touch up paint done. Oh well!

Nice work getting motivated to paint, can't wait to see the pics, sorry about the thumb, and I think there are different levels of friendship. I don't think it's unrealistic to want another kindred spirit, but I think that the majority of easily accessible friendships aren't going to be that deep. Those ones are special, and therefore few and far between!
