Stress --> decorating

Many different times in my life, when I have been stressed out, I focus  on decorating.  It’s like I push aside the important things in my life and stress about the way my house looks instead.  I think it’s a coping mechanism.

Anyway, this past week, I was SUPER busy with Creative Memories get togethers (which went AWESOMELY, thank you very much) and I was worried about giving my “final answer” to my superintendent regarding my job for next year.

So what did I do? I perused decorating blogs, visited my old friends at HGTV message boards, and rearranged my living room.
