I like watching HGTV

My back's out again. Must be a combination of getting the house ready, reducing the amount of stuff we have to fit into our new place that's 1/2 the size and those CUTE red heels I wore to my birthday lunch on Wednesday (not the whole day; put them on right before I drove over, kept them on while sitting for lunch then drove home and took them off immediately). Anyway... when my back goes out it's couch time for me and an opportunity to watch some Home & Garden television. I LOVE watching make-overs of any kind... yard, exteriors, interiors, people, etc. The first day of this is not too bad but the 2nd - 5th get progressively worse (plus I have a "female" visitor this time, if you know what I mean) and I get awfully cranky feeling like a ZERO that can't do much for myself or anyone else (thank you, hubby, for taking such good care of us all - especially when my back is out). It is no fun, that's for sure. Usually the dopey episodes don't bother me but I had been laid up for a couple days by the time I saw this. It has irritated me to no end and has made me so mad that they think it's passable. Hideous is the only word I could use to describe it without making this post R-rated! Sure would like to know how long it took the owners to undo it. Q: Am I the only one that finds this make-over a make-UNDER?

I'm with you with the back... mine has been stiff and sore for a week now. I think it's not just moving but the stress around moving. N'est pas?

Take care and good luck with the move. I'm right there with you!

Oh hun get to feeling better! and until then....stay away from the show "decorating cents"...they have the WORST designers, and things always end up looking worse. ALWAYS! it's awful, it's like watching a train wreck.

that room would make a nice kids play house though...

La Yen said...

I thought that WAS a kid's play room. That looks like an Enrichment project gone horribly bad.

Hope you feel better soon!

Thanks for the well-wishes :o) I'm on the upswing... could get back to packing in a couple days.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed the horridness.

I want to see your shoes! Hope you're doing better. I'm with you on the...what the hell did they do to that room. If they wanted trailer park...they'd be living in one.

Gack! I agree, that's an ugly room!

I love HGTV too, and it's one of the things I miss most about cable. I love the freebie redesign shows, and the cheap ones . . . usually.

Hey, the addy you asked about is 260W 400S.

FEEL BETTER. Sorry you're still feeling crapola.

It's awful. Then again, Decorating Cents is usually awful. It's not the worst show on HGTV, but I'm saving that for a blog post of my own.

Ohmistinkin'heck! That is horrible...your back being out and THAT ROOM. Sad. Sad. Sad.

how to do you fake happiness when you open your eyes to this? i would laugh just because it is so unbelievably juvenile. i honestly could see our young women making this for some kids room.
glad your back is feeling better. or maybe its not....you might want to use it for all it's worth so you don't have to pack anymore - just get a company to do it. :)oh my back, it hurts sooooo bad!

underwhelmed. i hope their business didn't really get a boost from this show. sometimes publicity should not be a good thing.
