Unfortunately, being nice to the neighbor doesn't always work out. After being VERY friendly and chatty to my neighbor for the past 3 years, I found out how absolutely batsh*t crazy she is this past week.
The other week she invited me to breakfast and then this past week she totally went off on me while I was walking my dog. Over stupid irrational things too... She is a special kind of crazy, she loves to be miserable and cause drama. She hates everybody in the neighborhood (and I've heard from a number of neighbors that they are not very fond of her either) and I guess it was only a matter of time until she hated me/us too.
What can you do? There's no reasoning with people like her... no matter how nice and friendly you are to them.

It tastes like a fish tank. But if you use frozen pineapple and squeeze of honey in your smoothie it's not that bad. Sometimes I mix a spoonful with a little orange juice and do a quick shot just to get it over with. FYI - it's great for lessening the duration and speeding up the healing of cold sores (you know, those bothersome things that most people get but nobody admits too). :)

I just painted my guest bedroom in Sensible Hue by Sherwin Williams. In my opinion, it's the perfect grey. I have natural red oak hardwood floors (no stain) and white moulding and it looks very nice. :)

Yes, when using LEDs you need to make sure you get a dimmer made for LED lights... and... make sure that LED dimmer is compatible with your specific LED bulb.

My Kitchen! I spend so much time in the kitchen - it's in the heart of the house. We just moved into our home 3 years ago and it's probably that last room that will be redone because 1) it's the biggest project/most expensive and 2) it's "livable" for now - just not my exact taste or my dream kitchen - but I keep telling myself that the decor could be worse. For now I recently purchased a new white dining table (that's perfect for the space) and the new chairs should be arriving today. Little by little until the complete renovation of floors and new cabinets can be done!

I know how you feel! I had a plumber that was 5.5 hours late after he said he was on his way! So frustrating!

I also have to use my vacation time in order to get the big things done (i'm the one that plans and executes/oversees all the projects). My husband and I moved to our current house almost 3 years ago. The entire house needed a cosmetic overhaul. We've gotten a lot done but there is still so much more to do but only so much vacation time available.
