Sometimes I feel like the Cobbler. I am so busy designing and decorating others' homes and I forget ... or truthfully, put off because I cannot make up my mind ... the finishing of my own home.
This past week I made HUGE progress in my Dining Room. HUGE? You ask ... yes. I chose a chandelier. Now you have to understand that this has truly taken me two years.
And then, the Deal Breaker. Every year our neighborhood has a Progressive Dinner to kick off the holiday season. First Weekend in November. Always. And I was prepared to take some apps and a bottle or two of wine. And I got the call.
Kim, can you host 10 at your house? WHAAAAAT??
Yup. this is her ... Don's office and our perfectly good fan. Yup.
Now I got this call a week before the dinner. I immediately texted my favorite electrician. HELP!!! I need you this Friday to install a chandelier, can you come?
CRICKETS. NO ANSWER. Did I mention he WAS my favorite electrician??? And by the way I didn't even HAVE a chandelier.
So at 5 pm Friday night when I finally had the chandelier in my hands, I reached out to a recommended electrician. He and I texted back and forth for about 2 hours. We were both having cocktails and really not paying attention to one another, but I needed him and he is just that responsible!
Saturday morning, he arrives at 10 am ... I am cleaning around him ... and he is wondering why on earth he accepted this job!
But boy am I glad he did ... party went off without a hitch and I marveled over my chandelier all night ... and truthfully ... still feeling pretty good about the whole thing!
Sometimes you just need a big PUSH! Did I mention I have a NEW favorite electrician?
Happy Week my friends ... now back out the door to get everyone else's home in order!
