What the hell was I thinking?

Why did I do it? Why the hell did I do it? Apparently my brain was on some serious trip when I decided to buy this place. Look at this! The wall is falling apart in my hands. Just tap it and, oh! There it goes!

I must be crazy…

And my mother. She just couldn’t help herself. Practically threw herself at the realtor. “Oh it’s so perfect! Anita, isn’t this place just perfect?” You’re not the one doing the work, Mom. God, when I asked for a new project THIS was not what I had in mind.

Damn it. Let me add “no kicking” to the list of things I can’t do around here. Now I have to jimmy-rig a banister. And I just had to go and be all stubborn about not hiring help. This is a mansion Anita! A mansion. It’s not going to fix itself.

Breathe. Just breathe. One room at a time. You’ll hire someone to do the big stuff, but until then just take baby steps. One. Room. At a time.

I’m never going to hear the end of this…
