Did You Miss Me?

Yes, I am still alive.  I did disappear into the NCIDQ studying abyss much more than I originally anticipated.  I'm pleased to say that I survived the test.  I won't know if I passed for about 3 months (just to torture me...) but at least I survived studying and taking it. Things have been happening around here though, while I had my nose to the grindstone.

Look what arrived!  The new living room chair that we ordered came in early.

Confession time: Ms. Sexy Red Chair and I have been having a bit of a love/hate relationship.  I love the lines and she's so comfy!  But she's also soooo bright.  I'm pretty confident I can make her work, but she's more of a challenge than I really expected.  I already have plans to DIY the perfect pillow for the chair.

Come to think of it, I have a lot of DIY plans.  I haven't done any projects in over a month, I'm going through withdrawal here!  The dining room needs art and refinished chairs, the bedroom is getting the old dining room chandelier (after a make-over naturally), I have pieces of a frankenstein-ed console table that need to be put together and painted, the lawn needs some new grass, the porch could use some stain/sealer.... I could keep going, but I'm already making myself tired.

Needless to say, I have plans!  And of course, I will share with you each step of the way.
