Redecorating bathroom to fight depression

One of the problems with being a full-time family caregiver is that you are extremely susceptible to depression. I hit into a funk a couple of weeks ago, just a general feeling of "bleh" that left me really not feeling like doing anything - particularly not spending all day at the computer working. It was a mood of "Why bother?" and I took it to heart.

I decided a few days ago to try snapping myself out of it by doing an overhaul on the bathroom, a complete redecoration to change it around and create a Victorian bathroom out of it.

It's going fairly well so far. So far I have it mostly painted and have the lighting changed out from the ugly light that was in there for a nice set of crystal chandeliers. I also have other things, such as new window treatment, new mirror, and other stuff like that. Still lots to do, such as painting ceiling and tiling floor, but it's looking really good in there so far.

Cold start to summer

It's hard to believe that the year is already half over. Where has 2008 gone to? Here we are, the second day in July already. The garden looks like it's still in the first week of May, poor little plants are so small and pitiful looking, I swear they have not grown any at all since we planted them. And trying to get outside to do things -- it's just been too cold. My nephew cut the back lawn for us for the first time yesterday. Should have been needed to be cut long ago, but things just don't seem to be warm enough for stuff to grow this summer. My mom's nasturtium plants are all tiny things, where they should be overflowing the sides of the half barrels they are all planted in.
