With Change Comes Sadness

I am sad--we no longer have a purple room.
Let me explain. When we moved into this house over 6 years ago we let the children pick the colors they wanted their rooms to be painted. K picked a very nice shade of purple. J picked a rather bright shade of green and C picked a nice blue. We have had many changes in the years we have lived here and moved rooms around many times but have always referred to the rooms by their colors. First the purple room was K's, then it was A's and for the past few years it has been a craft/art room. But it still remained the purple room.
As we prepare to sell our house we are having the three bedrooms painted a neutral color. Today the painter came and started with the purple room.
So this explains my above statement. It really isn't the color of the room as much as it is the feeling that we are really doing this. We are really going to leave this home. We have spent more time in this house than we have in any home we have lived in since we got married. It will be sad to leave this house, but we are looking forward to the adventure that moving to South Dakota brings.
