The Trouble with Renovations…

Wednesday, Apr 04

…is that when you get one improvement made, it makes everything else look bad. 🙂 Could this be a plot, even a conspiracy, by the construction industry?? (Just kidding.)

The hardwood floors look absolutely wonderful. The ones that haven’t been done yet, not so much. My bedroom, for instance, has green (and dog weary) carpet. The wallpaper–well, don’t even get me started on that. Just to make matters more complicated, I bought the most beautiful bedroom set I have ever seen. It will have to be stored in the room across the hall, until the floors and new wallpaper are in.

It never ends. And that’s fine with me, because I’ve been living in hectic mode for so long, I don’t know how to do “calm”. My week at the lake proved that–I took one look at the water and decided to veg out, deadline notwithstanding. I read Nora Roberts and a biography of Billy the Kid.

Come to think of it, there are things I’d like to do to the lake house, too….

To paraphrase the Boston Strangler, Stop me before I renovate again.
