The Mess I did not see coming!!!

First, can't believe this my 101 post! WOW! Back when I started this, I didn't know what I would come up with to talk about. That has not been a problem.
Things have been crazy here again. Mom not doing well with the chemo pills, so once things calm down, I will do some type of giveaway. There is just much on my plate, but I work well under pressure, well I think I do! LOL
So the Product shoot for Country Sampler is in 11 days. Originally I was hoping to paint the front room before they came. My neighbor who paints for me has been super busy, so I took it off the game plan. I figured after Christmas, since right after the shoot, Christmas decorating would start......
Well.... until this AM, Jeff calls, really wants to get this done for me before the shoot. Bless his heart... Kept saying it's OK, no big deal, lets wait, he needs is rest too! I already had the blinds down and the shelf that runs along the picture window down to paint. Pictures on that later...
So there he says, lets go, clean out the room and I will be there at 4pm after work. Thankfully hubby is off on Monday's so he was here to help me move the big stuff, can't do that with my back... Though, not the best thing, then he realizes how much "stuff" I have, and I get the "look" OOPS...So everything is off the walls, just need to go get some plastic to cover the furniture in the middle of the room...

now it's just a mess for a couple of days, everything will get a good cleaning and dusting. Then I will be ready for the shoot & the Holidays! More pictures to come! OLM

I am sorry about your mom. I will continue to lift her up in my prayers! I gringe looking at those photos of you getting ready to paint!! Back a couple months ago, I painted nonstop for 5 day, except a little sleep. I had my house a mess, nowhere to move for my junk.
Well it was alot of work, but now I look in pride. And you will too!!!! I am so excited that your home is going to be in country sampler, I love that magazine. And I will feel like a celebrity bragging that I know you, when the pictures come out in the magazine!!!!
Now don't work too hard!!!
