who needs ceilings?

does anyone else spend hours cleaning but when it's over your house isn't even clean?

i feel like i spent the entire weekend cleaning the house but all i have to show for it is ONE clean bedroom. ONE! it took me hours because sometimes it's just easier to start over. pull everything out of the room, clean it & then put back everything that actually belongs in there. it's tedious but oh so satisfying.

while i was at it i figured it was time to temporarily fix the falling plaster ceiling until we replace the whole thing. i felt really confident about this project. i went into it thinking i was totally going to kick that ceilings ass...

it's looked like this for awhile & that major crack has just been slowly getting bigger for months. i was worried that when our house gets worked on next week, it was going to come crashing down on our dogs (they're crated in this room) & i really don't want to give PTSD to my dogs if i can help it. so, i bought plaster washers & got to it.

oops. i took care of that problem, didn't i?
