Racing Against the Clock

"The Spectator" ACEO can be bid on here.

Wednesday...already? Have you ever had a day that felt like this:

Me, I'm having a week that feels like that. The Other Half and I are trying to get our basement finished off so that we can start renting it out. This has turned into a clean-up event of epic proportion because, as we quickly discovered, we have a lot of stuff. And that's all it is, is "stuff". I found things I thought had been sucked into a blackhole that was lightyears away...turns out it was just sucked into a box that was hidden away in the basement.

So, if you'll be so kind as to excuse me for the remainder of the day I have a checklist sitting in front of me that is only about 3/4 done and I need to have it done by the end of the day...or I turn into a pumpkin.

I LOVE that card Rita! Its gorgeous.

I have tons of stuff that needs to be cleaned up and put away, which leads to me finding more stuff that needs to be put away, so I don't even bother any more. :p

Good luck with your future renters, get references!

Thanks Jennifer! He's a gorgeous horse, my friend snapped quite a few pics of him so he might be on a few more ACEO's yet! :D

Yeah, the clean up is turning more into just shifting the mess from one room to another until we figure out what to do with everything. :p

I'll post photos of my basement if you post before photos of yours! Gadzooks, did I just say that?!

Gorgeous horse, Rita. Good for you for getting the sketchbook out- and using it.

Good luck with the rental unit. I hope you get someone really wonderful.

Thanks Lisa!
Actually, I might take you up on the basement photo offer.:D
I'll have to find 'before' pics, I might only have ones when the basement actually flooded. Ah, memories...
