Well, I'm one of those people who can't stand to show anything off until it's totally finished. If I waited for that, you wouldn't see any pictures. We painted and then I painted (and painted), we bought new carpet (for way more than we wanted to spend), and we bought a new leather chair to replace a floral chair that had seen better days--oh, but I loved it!!

I hate posts without pictures. I'm not on my normal computer, so I don't have anything to show. My point in this post is to say "Yeah" to me for putting the Nester's blinky on here. I have NO idea how I did it, but there you go! I have a question for my three readers. How is it that some people can put a strike through their words?

I have been in my house for 4 1/2 years, and I have finally painted my first room. Thanks to a nanny who spilled coffee twice in the same spot and a big, messy, slobbery dog, we are replacing our carpet in the family room.
