This is a little too close for comfort.

ROFL! Isn't that always the way - see one thing and it snowballs into noticing all the other flaws as well!

This is soooouo true! I caught up in that last year. One thing led to another and then you realize it will never end!

I will send you an invite so you can see the construction photos... it is amazing.. somehow Stephen thought the damage to the yard with this would be minimal..... bless his heart!

That made my day! I didn't see "dust" on there, but I could've missed it! With crops on 3 sides of me, I constantly have to battle dust.

But all of those things ring close to home! I need a big poster of that to motivate me. Time to throw some things out! Spring cleaning never ends!

Oh my, so true!

No time to comment.... I am busy moving the dust that suddenly arrived everywhere in my house! ;)

Why did you have to start my morning with a guilt trip? ;-)

Granny Annie said...

Just keep reading the book and never look up.

rosemary said...

yup...need: carpets, couches, paint, wallpaper removal, flooring, bath updates, fixtures everywhere, de-cluttering and of course a countertop!
