A Nod to Housebloggers

Hey, it looks like some of our housebloggin’ kin have link love to look forward to courtesy of the St. Petersburg Times! Ran across this today and it’s set for publication tomorrow.

Laughed when I saw it because it highlights several blogs that I regularly read and enjoy. A nice nod to those of us who are not only crazy enough (read:stupid) to take on the most psychotic of DIY projects, we BLOG about them, too!

It did, of course, get Liz’s name wrong over at A Constructed Life. Somehow, she’s now “Amy.” Maybe the baby isn't the only news going on over there. Hmmm.

Writer Janet Keeler even included Liz and Joey’s banner descriptor: "Remodel an entire house. Stay sane. Remember to have a life." What she neglected to mention in her story is the stress that comes with living in and working on a home simultaneously.

Which, if you believe Newsweek, isn’t all that bad necessarily. I just got my copy yesterday and the cover story is "Stress Could Save Your Life." So maybe all that house-related hub-bub, work-related worrying, and financial fiasco fever isn’t that bad for you after all.

Well, maybe.

Hey! I just checked that article and, as far as I'm concerned, it's incomplete! They forgot to include "This D*mn House!" I love your blog and reading about whatever project you tackle next...

So take THAT, St. Petersburg Times!

Jennifer -- Me, too!

Star -- Aw, thanks! You're too sweet. I love your blog, too. And, one of these days, I'll get back to the projects.
Just not today. :-)
