Balancing ACT....

That's what its been for over a month...nothing but a balancing act!
A rotation of this...

Job
(the thing that pays the bills and allows me to junk)


Moving (@*%@!*^)



Getting 1st home ready to sell (warm weather = mowing 6 acres)



Decorating and putting 2nd home in order



Booth 1


Booth 2



ShabbyVilla Website


Needless to say, I've not done a great job at anyone of them
except the job...ya know, the one that pays the bills!
I do have some sense of reality!


BUT


I've learned a little bit about myself



So here it is....



Undeniably ...I'm a hoarder (can it be?)



Yes...a hoarder!
Acknowledging is the first step to recovery (LOL)

so they say....

I've got enough junk for three homes...


Houston, I think we have a problem...no, I KNOW I have a problem!



As a pack I notice things that I bought to sell BUT there they are...sitting in all their glory!
Hopeless...that's what I am...
I just can't seem to let go...


Needless to say, when I can breath, I'll share some of my treasures with you...PROMISE!
its even in writing...so, you can remind me...REALLy
Obviously I need prompting....


Another revelation....


I've got a super family...great friends...both that support and love me!


no matter what BONEHEAD things I do...
AND beleive me....I do a lot of them!
Hence me selling my house I absolutely LOVE!
Long story...but needs to be done!


AND

Regardless of adversity...I've remained optimistic and strong!


So, let me show you what I've been up to at my new house...
Keep in mind...
I still have not moved everything from my old house
far far from it...tons of stuff still there
BUT
here is the before and after pics of my family room/entryway
in all likelihood
it will change
but for now...a glimpse of my decor!
Before (OMG...look at the paint and the furniture)


AFTER









(the breakfast/lunch sign still needs to be hung...hard to do with no ladder)





(trying everything I can to hide the ginormous TV)







More to come my bloggy friends....have a super day!
