~HELP~

Yes!! I would love to have Help with this mess I got myself into again this week ha ha!! Have you ever tore up your whole house just to clean??? Oh Yes all I was going to do was dust and next thing you know out came the ladder all the china to be washed, silver to be polished so then I had my kitchen tore up from all the stuff from the china cabinet... But hold everything right in the middle of this mess it was time to stain the oak trim in my bathroom right?? So off I go to taping and staining....Are you still with me here...Now I have my Dining room tore up, Kitchen tore up, my master bathroom, and I decided that as long as I had the stain out and I'm feeling pretty good from all these fumes from this stuff I would stain my fireplace so now I have my Living room tore up from the floor up...I have been Nesting but even birds don't try and build a new nest in one day ha ha!!
But this is really not what I'm asking help with...You see I have been getting emails telling me you can't leave a comment...I think I have fixed the problem but won't know until someone leave me a comment...lol!! Just say anything tell me to get back up on the ladder clean up my mess or STOP trying to sell Minwax stain on the corner ha ha!!! Thanks guys your the best...I will show you Monday how my fireplace turned out, that one I'm very proud of and got the China cabinet all done...Well coffee break over back on my head....
Until next time from my mountain top to yours,

Is that frog tape you are using and do you like it?

You are the energizer bunny girl! What do they put in the minwax anyway, I think I should get some. Be careful and try not to overdo it. Although it may be too late for that! Hugs, Kathy

Dawn said...

Yea! Comments is working! I was wondering if you got my email.

About that nesting all at once, I think you've been hanging out with Mona too much! At least your both getting things done. My house is in a similar state but it's because I keep bringing home to much stuff.

I got a 45 piece china set plus some serving pieces for $75 yesterday at an estate sale. So everything in my hutch had to come out! I'm out of room!
Hugs, Dawn

Well, Mrs. Gloria, I think this is called ADD! :) I'll have to admit though, it sounds just like something I would do. I often start on one project, but get sidetracked on another one and another and another! ha I just always pray no one drops in for a visit while I'm working on four projects in four rooms simultaneously! Enjoy your mess...at least you have the chance to really admire all of it.

Gloria, I was so happy to read this post, cuz I thought that I was the only one who got herself into messes like that. What should have been a one day cleaning chore turns into several days cuz it takes me that long to put everything back to rights! Maybe it is a woman-thing! :-) I noticed the antique doll sitting in her little high chair, I love her. A friend of mine collects dolls, and her house is like a museum! How I love going there!!! Have a great weekend, Debby

bj said...

There's 2 things (well, maybe more than 2) that I do on a regular basis...ONE...tear up my entire house 'cause I start too dang many jobs at once!! and TWO...go thru old photos trying to find a certain one and then...off I go down MEMORY LANE and 5 hours later, I come back to earth and haven't accomplished one cryin' thang !!
Glad you got your comments working again...and BE CAREFUL on that ladder...:)

Jeanette said...

I am so the same way, 8 zillion once. Good luck.

The Muse said...

yes..we spiral...that frenzy nesting thing... lol...i think it hits us all at one time or another!

love the frog tape it is all i use anymore!

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

Can you read me now????

Grandma Nina said...

I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one. I do this kind of thing all the time. Yes, it is a little ADD and OCD.
Your house is beautiful, so it's all worth it!

PEA said...

I'm so glad to see I'm not the only one who starts on one thing and ends up having 5 things on the go with my whole house turned upside down! lol It will all be worth it, though, once you're all done. Hmmm...problem is we never seem to get all done, do we, before we know it we start all over again! lol Be safe on that ladder!! xoxo

Glenda/MidSouth said...

I need some of that energy. I started packing up some china and just stopped in the middle and started something else.

Sandy~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

Oh My God Gloria, You had me laughing so hard I'm in stitches, this is me all the way. As I get older it seems like I take on so many task that leads to one thing to another and then it takes forever to get even one thing done completely and then I get overwhelmed. Your a Riot Gloria, and I don't think their is another one LIKE YOU.

Big Hugs to YOU-

You are inhaling too many fumes; but maybe I should try it if it would get me to work like you. Don't overdo!! Sally

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Oh my word Gloria, that looks so like the kind of mess I make all the time. You do have a ton of energy. I know it all looks just wonderful. I can't wait to see it all done. Hugs, Marty

Picket said...

Yahoo it lets me comment again!!!! Oh sis I can't tell you how many times I tried..I could comment on others blogs but yours wouldn't let me even type a letter...seriously I thought you had 'banned' me from the blog!!! lol lol I even emailed you and when i didn't hear right back i thought oh no I am in here 'spam' list!!!! I was about to cry..I was even getting ready to write you a letter and put a real stamp on it begging you to forgive me for what ever it was that I needed forgiving for! lol lol

Girl send me some of that energy...I need to get some things stirred up around here...love the stain..can't wait to see it all done...now are you washing all those dodads by yourself or has Len resorted to wearing an apron and holding a dishtowel! lol

I loved the last post...you know I started out on RMS as Picketfences because all my life I have loved picket fences...if I see one I just have to stop and stare...they call me girl...I'm serious...so everybody called me Picket and when I started the blog I just knew it had to be Picket's Place...to this day I still love being called Picket...

Girl I am so happy to get to comment on your blog again....all is right with the world again..you take care and quit sniffing those fumes...love you so so much sis...~Picket~

I see you share in my affliction called ADHD!!
My husband says I am difuse.

sissie said...

Hi Gloria,
I can relate. I start on one project and think about another. I then start on something else and before you know it I have five projects going on at one time, and I haven't completed not one.

Keep up the good work. Spring's coming.

hugs
Sissie

Connie said...

Almost looks like my craft room which is a "wreck" at the moment, honey! Not painting, just de-stashing. Sigh....

Happy Pink Saturday!

Nezzy said...

Yep, that's affirmative. I can make the biggest messes cleanin' but then by the end of the day it all comes together. Woohoo, I'm a cleanin' machine, baby!!!

God bless and enjoy your Saturday!!!

shirley said...

Gloria, looks like comments are still working! I get so nervous when something on my blog is not working! Yikes, I can't handle the stress. I love all the clean sparkle of glass after a good cleaning. It's hard work and a mess to get to that point but in the end it feels sooooo good!

Pat said...

Good grief girl! You need to get away from those fumes and slow down ~ :-) I have to say, I do the same thing! Why? Who knows...but I think it's typical.

Hope you're ok after all this.

Much love,
Pat

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

If all goes as planned, I may have a huge mess of my own going on here tomorrow. Mine won't have fumes...I get headaches! You must be feeling better:) That's great!

Deborah said...

Hi Gloria:
I see your really ambicous! I did clean my bedroom this morning, then I started to clean out my pocketbooks, then my bathroom...I'm glad I didn't start to paint! LOL

Draffin Bears said...

Oh what a busy bee you have been Gloria, sounds like something I would do.
Take care and don't work too hard.

Hugs

Carrie said...

This happens to me all the time too... I get started working on one room, but have to take something to another room; while there I notice something that could use a little tweaking, and before I know it, I have two rooms unravelled!

As usual, I enjoyed reading your post! Take care, Gloria,
Carrie

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Oh My Goodness! Gloria, you need to slow down just a little, and don't trip on your old red robe while you're climbing up and down on that ladder! Can't wait to see the fireplace. laurie

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Hmmm, have you been peeking in my house lately??? Looks like the comment problem has been corrected. ☺♥☺

Pat@BPM said...

Good Sunday Morning, Gloria!

It looks like your comment problem is solved, good news.:-)

I'm getting ready to tear into the dish closet, formerly known as the pantry. I see stacks of dishes all over the place!!

Watch out for those fumes!
Have a wonderful week.

Madeline's Album said...

Well it looks like your comments are coming in ok. Do not over do with all the cleaning. Have a blessed Sunday. Madeline

The Victorian Parlor said...

Yes! I do the same thing-I start with a simple cleaning and the next thing you know I am cleaning everything in the house! And then I discover other things that need cleaning and the vicious cycle continues:). Can't wait to see the finished mantel!

Blessings,

Kim
