Back from the dead, barely

I am walking slowly - very slowly - picture that old man on the Carole Burnett show - my eyes are still sore - but my muscles do not ache today -
Whatever virus I caught completely wiped me out - flat out on my back - ( lost 7 pounds since last Friday, seriously? I have been trying to lose 10 pounds for a year now - if I had know this was all it would take..........)

My house is a disaster - I've been living in absolute fear that the doorbell will ring - and I will be found out.
I always feel like such a fraud - because I put such emphasis on everything looking as good as it can that
people tend to think I never let anything get out of control -
There was a time - oh God I am so embarrassed to admit this - when I simply would not answer the door
if there was any kind of a mess inside.  Would love to sit with a shrink for a year or two ( decade or two? ) and find out what makes me who I am.  I am getting better, baby steps for sure, but better - and to prove it here is what my bedroom looks like after the 5th day of being sick

and as I am uploading the photos my stomach is in knots - don't do it Suzan, don't do it Suzan,
too late,
She did it.

And here is a sneak preview of a dresser redo, talking about patina Stacy, here's one for you!

take care all -

Just a spoonful of sugar

I need her here now,

I am sooo sick - it just hit me yesterday - aching nautious hacking feverish virus -
and I was so proud that I had not gotten sick this year.
I need her to snap her fingers and put my house in order - and give me a spoonful
of sugar.

BTW - most kids watched that movie and fell in love with all of her magic, I watched
that movie and fell in love with the house ( seriously - that's how far back it goes - )
as well as the Brady Bunch's house - oh how I longed to live there!

Back to bed for me I think- and may just stay there until Monday morning - have a good
