I'm actually glad to be going back to regular time, but the first few days are usually a bit hard...seems like I find them harder the older I get, too...sigh.

I finished the living rooms and got curtains hung in the entry. Tomorrow I plan to furnish the entry and the front porch, then maybe I'll move up to the attic before I tackle the bedrooms floor!

I added progress photos here:

You're doing a great job, the décor is really beautiful, I love the soft warm colour scheme :joy:

Thank you! I'm really trying not to go overboard with it all. I always tend to put in SO much stuff, and I dither over everything I pick. I don't know how you guys can get you builds done so much faster! :lol:

I tend to dither on kitchen counter choice but I'm not too bad, maybe when more packs come out it will take longer :evillaugh:

Thanks, ladies! It's those details that take me so long to build anything, though! Sometimes I get upset with myself that I can't just throw something together and call it done...but I can't do it! :lol:

I need to make a few SMALLER things in between my huge projects, I guess. I'm always biting off huge chunks instead of taking little bites! :rotfl:

I've been doing that lately and have decided to step back and leave it be for awhile. Have too much on my plate right now. I have to get this Insurance mess straightened out, we are going to be in Vicksburg week after next, the following week is Thanksgiving. Jason plans on spending it with us, but Cheryl, Chris and the boys are going over to "The Kings", however, coming over here for Dessert and Birthday celebrations (since we can't get together for their Birthdays on December 8th and 9th) (middle of the week) - plus Cheryl finished her 2nd Masters Degree in Language Arts and we have a graduation to attend on the 18th of December - and the week before that a school band recital to hear Hayden play his saxophone (at least I hope we get invited as I know "the Kings" have attended many school functions we've been left out), then our Anniversary and whew it's Christmas. I'm having it for the first time on Christmas Day - I'm sick of stepping aside for the "Matriarch Queen King". So - because of her need to control everything, she has made reservations to take the Grandsons to an event the morning after Christmas, so they must spend the night Christmas Night ... Really? The boys have 2 weeks off at Christmas, Spring Break, all summer and even the full week of Thanksgiving and she couldn't do that any other time? It has to be "They must spend Christmas Night with her" to go to some zoo place the morning after Christmas. Really? (sigh)

So - you can see I'm not going to have much play time until after New Year's. :yeah: :evillaugh:

I worked on the lot for a little bit tonight--got the spare bedrooms done and made a couple of changes to what I did yesterday, then the brand new power supply on David's computer went out (!!!) and I took it apart again, and put the older power supply in, but the fan is almost dead on that one, and it's very loud.

Now I have to call Amazon to tell them what happened, and see if I can get a trade!

This was after just posting a GREAT review for the power supply yesterday! Sheesh!!!

Amazon immediately gave me credit for the power supply ($25.99). I just had them put it to a gift certificate. Then I ordered a name-brand 500-W power supply for only $15.95. It wasn't listed the other day, or I would have gone for that one at that time!

The defective one was picked up by UPS today, with free shipping. Now I just have to wait for Tuesday afternoon to put the new one in. Until then, that computer is completely unplugged, in order to prevent a heat disaster!
