Nice queue, working mother :)

I don't dare to the same, getting extra storage space in my site is not on the budget!

Ha! We have been living in our house for ten years and our bedroom still doesn't have flooring. So many projects that we're saving for retirement...twenty years from now.

That's a riot. First laugh of the day which is pretty pathetic being that it is almost 10PM.

I tend to be the same way. If I start now I may finish the kitchen chairs we started five years ago or the Christmas tree skirt I purchased two years ago. I think I forget how much time my great ideas will need to finish or were I'll find that "free time!"

There are many perennials that can add to the beauty of any place in a few months, if due care and attention is paid while choosing and growing them.
