I'm not closeminded...just see things better my way!

9 yrs. in the making!
What is significant about this picture, you ask? It shows the completion of the ceiling in the Basement...a project that was started 9 years ago. You see, hubby ran out of tiles (about 4-5 short) & light panels and just never bought the rest and finished the ceiling. We are VERY different when it comes to projects. Whatever I start, I finish (as quickly as possible)...he can have 'projects in progress', as I call them, for y-e-a-r-s and it doesn't bother him one little bit. I have not nagged about it and knew he'd get around it finishing one day. Yesterday while I was at school (yes, school on Saturday...snow make up day) he got the materials and actually finished the ceiling...it looks great. Walls painted, shelves installed, new office furniture, ceiling finished, new carpet...the Basement is all done and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!! Oh, of course if we win the lottery or something all the 'plastic storage thingys' will be replaced with real cabinets, but for now we are good to go!
Am I really 50+? Life is good. My fortunes include an amazing husband, four fabulous daughters (2 birth, 2 bonus), two wonderful son-in-laws and three adorable grandsons. I am a teacher and owner of a home-based business. I started Basement Bags, a custom sewing/embroidery boutique, in 2005 and am working hard to monogram the world! I am usually too loud, always on a diet, passionate about sewing/embroidery, love to read, appreciate a good glass of White Zen, and live for school vacations. I am thankful for hair color and shapeware. I love 'Mexican dates' with my family, summers at the lake, thunder storms and sleeping late on Saturday! "Home" is my favorite place on earth.
