Spring fever...or just plain crazy???

I think it's safe to say that Spring has arrived! And I am pretty excited about that!

I know this Winter could have been worse (if you can, somehow, forget about that blizzard!!) but it seemed to drag on longer than usual!

This time of year my OUTSIDE to-do list is always very long...but I have managed to get myself in a real pickle, this year. Not only are all of my outside chores and projects calling me....but I have started about 15 INSIDE projects that all need to be finished, too!

I got this bright idea to re-paint our kitchen cabinets. And, right around the same time, I was inspired to do a little makeover in our upstairs bathroom. Well....that turned into a little more than a LITTLE makeover....I painted furniture in addition to all of the walls and woodwork. And then....I was so excited with how well the kitchen cabinets turned out....I decided that the kitchen needed a new paint job, too! And....I was so excited with how well the furniture in the bathroom turned out that I thought I would paint a few more pieces!!

Now....just about every room in the house is upside down...waiting for one, two....or seven...projects to get done....and my garden is wondering where I am!! Luckily....for my "guilt-o-mometer" it has been cold, wet and/or very windy every Monday since "Spring" arrived....but, I think that is about to come to an end!

This, probably, wouldn't be any big deal if I weren't SO type A....and if our home weren't such a sanctuary. I NEED it to be clean and organized....and pretty.....and warm and welcoming....at all
times! It is what keeps me sane in this crazy, fast paced, pressure filled life that I have created.

So....how about you? Do you have a few (hundred????) Spring projects on your to-do list? If so....what are you planning??

I will try to post some pictures as we accomplish things....I'm sure there are plenty of other people, out there, who love to look at fun before and after DIY projects....maybe there are even a few other people who have over extended themselves!! Seriously....please tell me I am not the only one!!
