anxiety and countdown to a “finished” room

no pictures of the progress today – even tho i promised. are you surprised? didn’t think so. here’s my excuse. i think it’s a good one. and you should know this about me – once i’m in bed for the night, i have anxiety at the thought of having to get back out of it.

last night i got in bed, and remembered i still hadn’t charged my camera battery to take pics for the blog. dang it. like i was saying, once i get in bed, i’m for all intensive purposes paralyzed. resulting in me asking mr. hutch to do everything for me (not to be confused with the game paralyzed). last night i asked him to do three things for me – one of which was plugging in the camera battery. he kindly offered to  do two of the three things (even tho he hates this disease habit of mine). unfortunately, plugging in the camera battery was not one of the two he chose. and i just couldn’t will myself out of bed to do it myself.

i told you it was a good excuse.

so still no pics, BUT mr. hutch finished up the trim work in the bathroom (it just needs some touch up with paint) so i’m feeling more excited to just “get that room finished!” which means we need light, wallpaper, and some paint touch ups.

the wallpaper thing – you should know – has turned into a huge source of anxiety for me. remember when i thought i was cool and no one used wallpaper anymore and i would scour the earth until i found the once piece of cool wallpaper left? turns out i’m an even bigger idiot that i originally thought. not only is there TONS of wallpaper, great wallpaper and hideous wallpaper alike, you can go to stores and look and thousands of wallpaper books and then, brace yourself, CHECK THEM OUT! bring them home, stare at them for hours, analyze them til you’re blue in the face! or in my case flip through them fast ’cause it’s too overwhelm, put them away, and pour a glass of wine.

i do much better when there is not time to decide. like the whole tile situation. so i need some sort of deadline so i just have to pick one. can one of you give me that deadline with a credible threat if it doesn’t get met? (mom – will you help me hang the wallpaper if i get it before you come out? that would be a good deadline…)

ok so wallpaper is a bigger mess than ever. but lighting i think i have figured out. i found some great lighting websites like schoolhouse electric and and barn light electric.  and am thinking i’ve narrowed it down to a couple of choices. i’d show you pics but i’m running out of time and have to get back to work.

who reads a blog that doesn’t have pictures!?!? bummer.

anyone else have any good lighting resources/websites!? or a cure for my anxiety and paralysis?!

    Ummmm… it’s “intents and purposes…”

    Fortunately, I don’t have to offer to help with the wallpaper. Not only am I on record as hating it; I once hung an entire hallway late into the nite and when I woke up it had all fallen off.
