Another writing distraction conquered!

First of all, thanks to all who stopped by last week to vote on the direction of my newest writing project. The rats have won! I spent some time doing my rat research last night and am ready to dive in when tonight's writing window comes around.

Onward into my victory!

Prior to rat research time, I was busy cleaning up the remnants of my far too long and drawn out redecorating project. After much swearing and cursing of the original builders, I am happy to announce that the laminate floor is in! The tools are put away, the sawdust has been vacuumed, and the chaos of renovation has been put back to rights.

Behold the the before and after.

The green room becomes...

The red room!
(Yes, we still need new carpet. That wasn't in the budget just yet.)

The other half of the room.

Ah, that feels good. If only it would stay all neat and clean.

Okay, guilt monkeys, I have all my major distractions out of the way. I declare that two weeks from now, I'll have the first draft of this rat story done. Here are your bananas. Thank you.


  1. Nice work, Jean. It's good to see someone who isn't afraid of a bit of colour.

    Hmmm...does it go with your hair?

  2. Thank you. I'm so glad it's done.

    My hair has been that color, several times. Right now its a medium brown with faded purple tips. :)

  3. Nice job, Gypsy! :D

    I really like those red walls. :)


Join the conversation. It gets lonely in here without you.
