So Many Choices, So Little Time

For those of you who tuned in for the Blogger Butt Smackdown, that program has been postponed until next week. "Why?", you may ask. The answer is simple. Because I said so;) My camera is MIA, I haven't been to the gym, AND I am really too tired to even pretend to care about my weight today!!! Any further questions?



As many of you already know, we are in the process of having our two-car garage enclosed to create a family room, and a laundry room. Last week, the crew completed the covered side porch, built the fireplace enclosure, removed the garage doors, and installed two windows and a set of french doors. The smell of freshly cut wood is heavenly:)

This week, Cool Breeze and I need to buckle down and select our wood flooring, fireplace stone, ceramic tile AND wall color. There are probably some additional lighting fixtures that need to be chosen as well. I do not relish the thought of having to make SO many choices in such a SHORT period of time.

Sure, I have bought several magazines in hopes of finding JUST the right color for that room....but to no avail. Earth tones are a must, but selecting THE color can be tricky! Not to mention the fact that I keep getting distracted with thoughts of how badly the rest of the house needs to be painted...and I'm thinking of changing some of THOSE colors:/

It's VERY exciting to see such progress being made on the enclosure! Once it's complete, we will wonder what we ever did without all of that "extra" room!!

If I EVER get my camera back (or buy a new one) I will have plenty of pictures to post. For right now, I'll just have to settle for the cell phone shots that CB sent to me! Of course, I haven't downloaded them, so you will just have to take my word for it!!!!

What's going on around YOUR house this spring?

Well, you are way too busy for any stinkin' exercise. Have fun. I love picking out stuff;) So send me choices, and I'll help. Or "hayulp."

I can't wait to see pictures. I know you will be so happy when it all gets done.

Daryl said...

Not a lot of cleaning thats for sure.. and coffee is far more fulfilling than pearls, thanks for the visit!

Grandma J said...

Sounds like you got a pretty good size chunk of that stimulus package! Have fun, and don't go over budget, because then we will have to punish you by upping your tax rate....retroactive!

I haven't gotten on my scale ever since I bought 4 pints of butter pecan ice cream because they were on sale. I did spread them out over the weekend.

I vote for a whole house painting job! That's what we did when we added on the sunroom and exercise room. It makes you feel like you're in a whole new house! We did lots of deep beiges and golds....with a few dashes of brick red, olive, and navy. You'll pick the right colors, I know!

It sounds very exciting...wish I was there, I would have you getting all that stuff picked out in a jiffy. I love that part.
Good luck...hope you find your camera and post some pics. Did cool breeze get locked in there with no computer? Did he quit blogging all together. I did not see a resignation letter, that is how it works here. let him know.

I"m exhausted just reading this. I think you need a vacation.

I know I do.

I have to tell you... nothing as big and exciting as what's going on at your house!

I wish you the best of luck. Before we moved in our house we turned a small garage into a bedroom and it truly gave us a place to getaway, I love it.
This spring we will be working on our kitchen cabinets and making our backyard into a daycare center for our ONE child, LOL! We must be insane. :)

Predo said...

Look under the bed, that is where I find all things missing. If found there, I really need to know how it got there!!!!!

mom x 2 said...

Ooooo I'm so excited! I can't wait! How much longer? Huh? Huh? Huh? Geez, could you hurry up! Just kidding... can't wait to see it! By the way, you will be blowing the BloggerButt Smackdown out of the water this weekend with another visit to 3Monkeys! Can't wait for that either!

Daryl said...

OH YES! .. when will you be in NYC? If it means training up to CT I will do it .. but you'all need to come here into the cit-ay ..

Karen Deborah said...

Yep leave it to Grandma J to size the whole thing up right. So how did you get a sizeable chunk of the stimulus package? Where is the new garage going after your realize there is no place to put crap?

Really it sounds quite exciting and when you get it all figured out I'll make you some dish cloths out of the appropriate colors. To help your granny instincts.
