One of the bedrooms in my house has been long overdue for a facelift, and I made a commitment to myself to tackle the job before my work season resumes in the spring. When completed, it will serve as a guest room I can feel comfortable to offer to overnight visitors. The contents of this room are currently in my bedroom; therefore, I've been sleeping on the couch. The dismantled bed is in the living room, as there's no other "convenient" spot to stash it.
Now, one would wonder why a small, spare bedroom overhaul would take this long. Well, after I cleared the room, I spent a few days wallowing in misery because my normally tidy home was no longer so. Then I spent a few days in avoidance anxiety and procrastination mode. To alleviate those feelings, I decided to vacuum my basement, organize my garage and make some crafty things. Oh, and all of a sudden, I had lots of errands to run. Then I found myself absorbed in reading other people's blogs. Blogs about pretty and fabulous room re-dos. Go figure.
Then three days ago, I finally bit the bullet and got started on what I should have been doing about two weeks ago. I was going strong the first two days; I cleaned all the surfaces, spackled, and began sanding. Today, I had a slip up. Somehow, I had more errands to run, and then I needed to take a nap; therefore, I didn't get back on track until about four o'clock this afternoon. I managed to get some more sanding done, but then I thought it might be best that I write this post. And, soon it will be time for dinner.
I crafted some darling little Valentine's Day decorations to share with you. Sadly, though, I have no spot in which to photograph them because this crab apple's home is in such disarray. To top it off, after I tackle this room, I'm taking on my home office.
Is this not the most sorry-a$$ed-pathetic post you've ever read?
Yes, I know there's a light at the end of this tunnel, I'm just not seeing it yet. When I do, when these beastly battles are fought and won, and when I turn back into my chipper self, I look forward to sharing with you the reward of my efforts.
