Wish Fulfillment

Patience and a healthy outlook can sometimes be difficult to maintain while in the midst of a home renovation. So it’s important to take inventory of the small, unheralded victories that take place.

For example, mad scored a coup today at a certain international, Swedish-founded big-box furniture retailer that will remain nameless (Ikea). 2 contemporary, elegant ceiling lamps were procured for not all that much money after careful research, and considering other light fixtures that were several times the price. Of course, we haven’t installed these units yet, but we’re allowing ourselves to feel pretty good.

I’d also like to offer a small home repair tip to our loyal readership. If you’re unfortunate enough to find parts of your computer desk slowly disengaging themselves, a 6″ “C – clamp” and a polyurethane adhesive named after a large primate (Gorilla Glue) are very helpful. Rest assured, you’ll find yourself typing away happily and being downright giddy in no time.

Everyone can agree that a buoyant mood and a cocktail really helps the home improvement process along. CClamp

    "…IN BED." Sorry, Denise, maybe I'm immature, but something about that quote begged me to play that old fortune cookie game where you add "in bed" to the end of the fortune….
