Peach State says: Swiss Cheese Without The Smell

And there you have it…holes have been cut out of my ceiling in preparation for inset lighting. (My hubby’s idea!) if you look closely you will see two other holes cut but replaced due to plumbing issues found in the ceiling area.

It’s like…Swiss Cheese Without The Smell!

The electrician had successfully cut out two holes then found a water pipe…”No worries…No water…” So he moved the next hole down 4″. He mentioned the fact that there could be a problem with the placements of the holes on the other side of the ceiling…and there was! So he had to move those holes toward the fan. “No one will notice!” My hubby did…but he is a balance freak!

The hole over the fireplace is for the TV. That symphonic disaster was time consuming and very stressful.

Such inconvenience from a tiny hole!

Once the electrician left…my 20 year old son started his chore…

“Squirrel!” Yep…there it is…all over the walls! What do you think? I know it will take a few days to grow accustomed to this new shade of squirrel…green!

A full day of activity lies ahead…”Good thing I have plenty of espresso!”
The electrician is due anytime after 8 AM with a painting company coming in for either an estimate or actual painting of the ceilings. Just one thought…”When do I get my house back?” Wait there is one more thought…”Please excuse the mess!” With the semi-chaotic placement of treasures and stuff stacked and moved my home is just not up to par…and my ADHD is in overdrive. But…it is short-term. Hopefully things will return to normal this weekend!

Gotta go get dressed…I can’t have the electrician showing up while I am still in my favorite oversized football team shirt…he might overcharge us due to his love of another team. We would not want that!

Have a great day!

Peach State says: Just Another Hole In The Wall!


My hubby got the “Home Improvement Itch” or as I call the “Decorator’s Itch” this past week. First it was changing the colors…now he wants a new lighting system and to move the big screen TV from its longtime resting place on the wall to the area over the fireplace. The electrician is coming this morning…”GREAT!” Just what I always wanted…Just Another Hole In The Wall!

Okay…so maybe there will not be an oversized-gaping-expanse in my wall but there will be a number of new holes in the ceiling and two in the wall that will be covered.
Dimmer switches and lightbulbs…
Lighting receptacles…
Light switch and new placement for the TV…


“You know what this means…I get to rearrange some furniture.” (Stop that wagging finger!)
I will have to have the boys move the big stuff because it is heavier than I normally move. My 22 years old’s sectional is too heavy for people who are (how does my 20 year old say it…) “old”! I really dislike this term…(old)…especially when he acts out someone using a walker when he says the word!

I will have to post pics…that is if the TV can be moved and the electrician can do it all today! I sure do hope so…my son needs to finish painting!

I am heading out to do a few errands before the impending arrival.

Do you have a DIYer (Do It Yourself-ER) in your home? Do you find you have the “Itch” to decorate and change things up? Let me know!

Have a great day!
