Cindy: My Home’s A Work In Progress

Our house is in a constant state of home improvement. It’s a veritable ode to unfinished projects. I marvel when friends say they painted their living rooms or stained their decks over the weekend. “You mean it’s done? Finished? Completed?” I ask. I painted my dining room last fall, but ran out of time, energy and impetus by the time I reached the kitchen. So half of the large room is Desert Sand and the other half is Aging Apricot. For 17 years we’ve lived in a 1978 split-level that needs more TLC than we can usually muster. Due to a limited budget, our handyman and home repair staff currently consists of my husband Derek/Cindy Hval, Washington Voices. More here.

Question: Is your home a work in progress?
