Isn't it gorgeous? Huh? Isn't it?

The to-do list for this room is still not all checked off, but at least it's starting to look like a room again!

Here is the before, for anyone who is interested...

Mr. Screwy!!!!! You're home!

My favorite flathead screwdriver had gone M.I.A. and I was very upset about it. Do you have one tool that always seems to come through for you? That, for me, was Mr. Screwy. He had a really sharp head, so even screws that barely had any head left were no match for him. Mr. Screwy was the BEST. And somehow, somewhere, I had misplaced him. But he has returned! Please share in my joy, fellow old house nuts! :)

Over. Whelmed.

  • Too many projects that should be done NOW (insulation, shore up kitchen floor that is eternally sinking, scrape/prime/paint exterior window trim....there is so much more but I'm depressing myself)
  • No funds
  • Worried about job
  • COLD already and it's only November

Sigh. I'd better stop before I wallow down any further.

What do you do when you feel like this? I am waaaay open to suggestions. :]
