I am so freakin' sick of...

...working on my house, I'm about ready to scream!! Come home...paint. Come home...spackle. Come home...clean the laundry room. Wake up on Saturday...work on the yard and paint. Wake up on Sunday...clean, paint, work on the yard and more spackling. Oh, Lord, I am SOOOO ready to sell this place.

So I was painting tonight and noticed some blooms on one of my house plants. I took time out to catch the moment.



Next week it goes on the market, and then the adventure really begins.

Deb, I know how you feel. I've been there a few years ago with trying to get a house we'd lived in for 20 years cleaned out and put on the market. It's exhausting. Great photo! Is that a peace lily?

Wonderful photo! Hope after all your hard work that the house sells quickly!

What about the drainage ditch on the left side. As long as you're in the mode already why don't you build a little foot bridge...some special lanscaping...you know, just something special. JUST JOKING! Arbeit Macht Man Frei!

Beck - Tell me about it. I had a 3-day weekend and spent ALL of it painting and cleaning. I'm just about finished, though. I'm talking to a real estate agent tomorrow and if she tells me I need to do anything to the house, I'm going to have to kill her.

Ann - You and me both. Even though I feel I've done so much work on it, it just takes the right buyer.

Paul - HaHaHaHaHaHaHa...you are just so funny. Don't make me come up to South Dakota and slap you.

Good luck with the sale, Deb. Hope you find a new home that you don't need to do anything to!

Great photo and good job on the house so far. I don't envy your task!

Thanks, Vee and Wayne. I'm kinda hoping for a condo with NO yard work other than some potted plants and flowers. But first I gotta sell this place!
