What I did on my Day Off~

Now, I must start this post off in the interest of full disclosure. Yes, I was unplugged on Friday....BUT it was only from the Land of Blog. You see, my dear readers, I have this job. That pays me money. (oh yeah, one of those...hee hee!) I work part-time from home as an editorial assistant...now that I've said that, please don't scrutinize my blog....I don't follow any sort of grammar rules, or anything like that when I blog.

Anyhoo, since I work from home, I am required to be on-line. That said, it made staying away from my blog (and everyone else's wonderful blogs) excruciatingly difficult. But I did it. And it forced me to admit to myself, that I spend a lot of time reading blogs. Not that that is bad. It's just something that I have to keep in check, so that the other important things in my life don't get pushed to the back.


So, what did I do with all that extra time that wasn't spent in blogland? I was very productive. I helped to redecorate an entire home! Top to bottom. Not only did we redecorate, but we even got the clients (and their pet) moved back in... all in one day! AMAZING! And boy do they love their new digs. I took some pics so you all could see my amazing one day makeover...check it out.























And since we had a little extra time, we built a high-rise condo next door. The new neighbors look pretty friendly, wouldn't you say?





I have some fun things lined up for this week...hope to see you all tomorrow~

So cute! :) You should quit that editorial assistant gig--you are clearly gifting in the art of design. ;) You are NOT alone in the blog addiction. I am typing this right now as my one year drinks her milk b/c I know I won't get a chance to read again for a few hours! ;)

wendy,

I CAN RELATE!!!

i work mostly from home as a communications consultant and spend a few hours in the a.m. and sometimes p.m. editing or compiling things and it is not easy to avoid taking a quick peek at the blogs!

i popped online to view some blogs last night while filling the tub for baths!

and, i also love to set up scenes while playing with my boys. get me interested with drawing, playmobil or legos, and i'm in!

Looks like yall had some fun!

AnNicole @ OurSuburbanCottage said...

Oh my gosh...I'm laughing out loud! Those pictures are hilarious!

I can relate, I have one of those job things too. It's tough to sit at a computer for 8+ hours a day and not look at the amazing blogs out there.

I think we are all guilty from time to time of spending too much time blogging...and not enough time playing. Looks like you made good use of your "free" time!

Centsational Girl said...

What an amazing decorating job. You've got skills. Looks like you've got a budding mini designer in your home. Lots of fun !

Kimba said...

Good for you! I think setting limitations when you're on the 'puter is even harder than just shutting the whole thing off.

I was surprised at how difficult it was. I became very aware of how often I have the urge to look something up, check my email, see what my blogging peeps are up to.

And that's quite a neighborhood that your client lives in. YIKES! Your post cracked me up. Thanks!
