Ten steps forward- two steps back
I came home changed clothes so I can start work in the kitchen and ate my supper, a delicious salad from Arby’s. After I ate I decided I can’t do anything in the kitchen tonight. I am aching so I figured I better take a break tonight. Its raining cats and dogs and I suspect … Continue reading
Paint can set the tone for your day…
I was losing hair thinking about that horrid Army looking color combo colors in my kitchen. I couldn’t imagine living with that. I am Navy not Army after all. I kept telling myself “oh it’s not really camouflage…besides the only time you will go in the kitchen is to pass thru it” But all this hard work to not like the results seems kind of self sacrificial to me. I tossed and turned last night thinking about this because it’s now or never. If I paint later I am bound to mess up some stuff. One thing I am celebrating since I turned 50 is if there is something I do not like, something that makes me feel uneasy, and/or makes me question my decision…I do not have to put up or live with it I can scrap it and move on to something else. So if I don’t like the paint, repaint and have a nice day. It’s a Continue reading

Those of you who don’t know, I am an Appraiser and I look at houses and place value on them for a living. I love my job because aside from the challenges in this dry market I get to see how people live. I see the good, the bad, the ugly and the unbelievable. I … Continue reading

I am so sick of this drywall!
How many days does it take to hang drywall? It is a whole different story when you are working on your own. First of all there is no pressure not to keep taking breaks, all work must stop when a store run or meal break has to be taken and no one to blame when … Continue reading

Okay so when this project started I was only getting a price for windows because I saw a sign in Lowe’s for $99 installation price on windows but when I priced all new windows I decided to only get a garden window, then I decided to take off the paneling in the kitchen and was … Continue reading
