RUNNING ON FUMES

Where are you?  A question I was recently asked in an email from a reader…

My answer: I’m running on fumes! I have several projects going on at one time plus I’ve been dealing with a family matter.

I’m painting pumpkins and foo dogs

I now have another blue door that is actually the wrong shade of blue

I was helping my son put together a fall diorama for school

AND I’ve been patching holes in Nick and Bren’s room…YES, holes

And I may or may not have stopped in a Goodwill

I miss you guys a lot! I will be back to my regular posts shortly, but I have to finish a few things first.  I thought about doing a post on “how to patch holes in your walls”, but I figured that may be a little boring! I mean, don’t you already know how to patch holes?!

Have a great day!

I run on fumes so regularly, I understand exactly how you feel. Sit down, take a deep breath, and finish things according to priority. The blog land will be here.

Honestly, I don't think anything you post would be boring! Get caught up girl, and we'll be here waiting! Sandi

I was just wondering about you, so it's nice to hear that everything's okay! As far as the post on patching walls, I'm sure there are people who don't know how that would love it. That's the thing with posting, we just never really know who's looking for what at any given time. :-) Have a great day, Lakeitha!

BTW, that diorama would get an A+ from me!

Hope all the dust will settle soon...

I would actually like to see a post on fixing holes. It seems complicated and I become easily distracted when I have tried to finish reading other tutorials on that topic. You have a knack for presenting projects in a way that are completely understandable and doable. I think your realness (is that a word?) and humor make your blog fascinating to read.

Ahh his diorama looks so cute!! I hope all is going well :)

Good luck with all of your projects. Sounds like you are a busy, busy woman. I feel your pain. I too have been slacking on the posts lately. So hard to juggle life, work and blogging. When you figure out how to do it all let me know. ;o)

See ya back on the blog soon. Oh, check out my giveaway that I've got on my blog right now if you get a chance. It's the book Green Interior Design. -c

oh, is that all? lol. That diorama is so cute. Remember those. And that goodwill lamp is a FIND! I need to find a better goodwill to haunt - mine has no such treasures!
