Not the pretty house pictures you're used to


Do you know what happens when your stress level is through-the-roof?






When it's so overwhelming that you don't even know where to begin?




When you really DO care, but it looks like you don't?



Well, that's where I am right now.
Overwhelmed, overworked, exhausted, and sick and tired of being sick and tired.

(This is where you start singing Sam Cooke for me. Or Don't Cry for Me, Argentina. Whichever.)

So I am going to my brother and asking my brother, "help me please." I need someone to drag me out of this mess. (Metaphorically, of course.)






Because this is my reality right now. And I don't like it.

Umm, I take it this goes back to my comment on your last post, where I said there's an incredible amount of work that goes into a sale - before, during, and AFTER?
Smart move, calling in the troops.

Hi Kirby,
Ok I know you are overwhelmed and stuff is everywhere but I see a beautiful fireplace surround and mantel,
a beautiful chandy, pretty pieces of furniture and ohhhhh I love the color of your walls. So there I saw past all of the stuff and saw some really beautiful things. Just sayin!!!

have one room that looks like that. It will be my craft/photography workroom. I did not realize it would take so long to unpack, paint and organize. I hear ya!

START by giving yourself a huge hug and pat on your back! I could NEVER get a tenth as much accomplished as you do! Go lie down and regroup...you've done it before, I'm sure. Do call for help if you need it....
....and as a side note: Those photos taking photos look like MY HOUSE 3/4 of the time!

One thing at a time, this happens to me all the time! Usually when I try to multi-task. Good luck!

Oh that stinks! I can totally relate -- you need something to GIVE. Sending hugs even though I know that won't drag you out of the pit!
